    USA are playing Italy in about an hour and a half (14:30 ET) and could be in with a good chance as Italy have not been great lately.

    No fuckin' way.

    Italy for life, SUCKA!

    An international tournament being held in South Africa a year before the World Cup is to be held there is very interesting for football fans.

    Plus there's always players looking to impress in these competitions to try get a move to a bigger club.

    I looked at my Mexico jersey the other day and I was disgusted. Betrayal, that is what I feel.

    Clark has just been given a straight red for a slightly late tackle.

    Absolutely terrible decision as it hardly even merited a yellow.

    This could end up with more people sent off as tempers are rising.

    Rossi won the ball at the centre circle, brought it forward and scored with a dinger of a shot.

    3-1

    A very nicely worked bit of play that ended with a Rossi volley in the last minute of injury time.

    I just saw the US is also in the same group as Brazil, and that's the next match.

    Exit, stage group. :bluu:

    Another two matches on today.

    Spain Vs Iraq at 10:00 ET and South Africa Vs New Zealand at 14:30 ET.

    Should be lots of goals in the Spain match as they are the best team in the world right now.

    The second match could be two bad teams scoring lots or two bads teams being shit. Hopefully the former.

    Also worth noting, Iraq have a layer named Mohammed Ali.

    The Irish commentators and pundits have been having a field day with it!

    Damn....I just realized that Spain was placed in a pretty shitty group. While Brazil and Italy destroy each other, Spain will just have a cakewalk with those scrubby-ass rivals. OLE!

    Lovely team goal for South Africa finished off by Parker.

    1-0 and still seventy odd minutes to go.

    USA - Brazil at 9am? Dammit. I'm gonna have to catch the replay.

    Finally got to see our new team in Seattle play. Just my luck. One game of theirs I see, and they choke away a one-goal lead in the 88th minute. On an own goal no fucking less. Why must my teams keep raising my hopes just to tear my heart out and step on it?

    I think I saw Pablo the Mex in the stands. I also think he's the one who threw that beer bottle at DC's goalkeeper that just missed his head. YOUR AIM SUCKS PABLO! :mad:

    haha Egypt beat Italy.

    Doesn't mean shit for the US though. Even if they beat Egypt and Brazil beats Italy there's no way the US overcomes a goal differential of -5 while Italy has +1.

    Man, caught some highlights of the US vs Brazil match and that was just disappointing.


    All of my international teams are looking weak as well. :(
    You have been weighed.
    You have been measured.
    And you have absolutely...
    Been found wanting.
    Welcome to the New World. God save you, if it is right that he should do so.

    Egypt is no joke. What a good win for them, Italy had so many chances but the goalie for Egypt was too top tier on his game. Anyone remember him stopping the ball right on the goal line ?!?!?!??!

    :pray:
