*snickers* I can so imagine it, Nic! You'll be like a lost puppy: 'GO GERMANY! WAIT! NO! GOOO ENGLAND! WAIT! NO! ;w;'
Something like this!  XD

On the other hand.. one of them WILL go up!

If there are any Aussies reading this -- even though you guys didn't advance, the Socceroos battled like warriors.  You were handed a couple of bullshit red cards and some other unlucky breaks.  You deserve to hold your heads up high.

Ditto for New Zealand.

Ehm, here, Australia: The first match vs. Germany was horrible, and the red card for Cahill was after the standing of 2-0 for Germany. Good morale though to come back like this versus Ghana and Serbia. Have a nice summer, Vidic!

But New Zealand - KUDOS on all levels. Also, KUDOS to Slovakia. To win against Italy with guys like Vittek is just a great achievement to be proud of.

Denmark - Japan. Only during a World Cup, a match like this could be interesting ^^

Come on, it's Germany, what do you expect?   It's like North Korea vs. Brazil: you're only surprised because you were expecting it to be more of a massacre than it was.

Not at all! Australia made it to the round of 16 in the World Cup 2006. There, they lost to Italy with 1-0 in the last minute, because Luca Toni made a diver. Australia was better than Italy in the match. Germany had a whole lot of respect for Australia, and we expected it to come out as a 1-0 or 2-1.

*EDIT* Mental note: Avoid freekicks against Japan.

I realize this is slightly OT for this thread, but a friend sent me this link earlier and...well, I just had to share!

The Non-Football Fan's Guide to the World Cup or What to do When You're Just Here for the Hot Men

Holy Shiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii.....My brain stopped functioning by the time I got to Group C...

My only complaint is the inclusion of Arne Friedrich...NOT because he isn't hot...oh, he's hot...but he also disturbingly looks a lot like my dad (when he was young, of course)...damn German heritage! lol

Oh, and they could've included the entire Spanish line up, imho...but I'm happy w/their choices ;)

In the end, can I just say...Carlos Bocanegra *faints, then melts into a puddle of lust*

Ok, ok, back to the serious futebol talk now ;) hehehe...

Italy ended up bottom of their group?

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

I'm beginning to think there is a God after all, or at least one with a highly developed sense of humor.

Thanks. I love you too.

 ;D

What can I say... we deserved to lose. Lippi did all the wrong choices and Montolivo (our last hope) played a really crappy game.

Deserved loss, nothing to add.

Sorry, Drake.  It's just that the Italians are known for being notorious divers, which is the same reason I hate Ronaldo. 

I know everybody does it these days, but still.  There's winning, and then there's winning with honor.

I beg to differ, but this kind of discussion is a bit complex so better avoid it... and anyway, as I said, the loss is more than earned in this case.

* Kit drags Drake back, since he's better looking than any of the soccer players previously mentioned
;D

It was a bit of a shock to see them go, but yes, their game play was not up to par...It happens...Looking forward to this next round of play :D

You're saying the Italians aren't known for diving?  I think everyone in this thread can give many, many examples.

I don't see myself going over there anytime soon. Lol And Bocanegra is from the US! So...Bocanegra it is.

GAH! I cannot wait for the Portugal vs Brazil game!!!! Even though Kaka is out =/ But it's okay cause Maicon is still there! And he's magical when he plays! :D

Don't expect too much. A draw is well enough for both teams, and Brazil will test one or two things. I fear it's not going to be magical.

2 days till penalty shootout.

Buh. Why am I even surprised that they ended in a draw? Both of them already had it easy. Ivory Coast did bad ass, though. Good for them going out with a bang. =)

And it wasn't...magical, that is...but it was a good game & I think both teams are more than happy with the draw.

Personally, I had no expectations for this game, so I know I'm happy ;D Of course, now I'm curious to see who Brazil will play next!

Those four people who voted for Italy to win the whole thing must be feeling pretty silly right about now.
