I can't believe Turkey knocked out Croatia yesterday and Russia knocked out Netherlands today.

Russia have been strong all competition but it was still a big shock seeing them beat the Dutch the way they did . Arshavin and Pavlechenko are a very leathal strike partnership . Celtic had been getting linked with signing Pavlechenko before the tournament started , now they have no chance of doing so with the way he's playing. sad.gif

I expect though with Barbados playing at their home country and being humiliated last game, they will put up a better fight when they and the U.S. meet again on Sunday. I highly doubt we'll see another 8-0 affair, but as long as the U.S. plays calm, composed, and patient, they should win without much difficulty.

Heh.....Barbados would have to beat us by 9 to knock us out of the World Cup anyway.

What a last minute goal to deny Turkey another rally, still hoping for the Germany-Spain final

Good game so far between Russia and Spain , free flowing with plenty of chances for both team's . before the game the Russian striker Arshavin was getting talked up so much about moving to Barcelona and how he was one of the best strikers in the world . he's hardly been in the game .

The freakish weather over there cut out the Germany-Turkey feed here in America. So I did not get to enjoy the game. sad.gif

I'm still pissed they beat Italy but I like Spain. They were by far the most consistent team in this tournament. They deserved it.

Why? God, Italy is the worst. Anybody who beats Italy - unless it's Mexico - gets a big ol' thumbs up in my book.

Well that would make sense then. I still don't like 'em though. The soccer team, I mean. I've been to Italy and absolutely loved it, but that doesn't stop the national team from being the biggest divers and jakers in all of Europe, which is saying something. I guarantee you a huge reason soccer hasn't caught on in America like it has in Europe is because whenever it's on TV (which generally is once every four years) we look and we see all these players get a little bitty kick in the shins and go down screaming for Jesus to save their mortal soul because they're dying right there on the field. Until the stretcher guys come out and/or a foul is called, then they're miraculously OK until the next time they're touched. It turns off a lot of folk.

Yeah it turns off a lot of Australians too, including myself. However, I can't help but appreciate the skill and grace of the game when it's played by quality teams.

I'm currently trying to figure out why I chose to be a fan of Tottenham.

I'm also trying to figure out what team to root for while Tottenham is relegated next season, I'm thinking Celtic.

Robert Lang occasionally coasts, and spends time searching for the best pane of glass to best view the reflection of his flowing mullet. Other times he is a strong-armed force with the puck. I never knew what to expect from Robert Lang. He is The Enigma. " - A2Y

How about the other team from North London? You know the one that has a similar passing style like the Red Wings and also the same team colors. shifty.gif

Haha, one of my old roommates and best friends is an Arsenal fan and says almost verbatim the same thing. I don't see it happening.
