Spain looked unimpressive today as did Portugal.
Ronaldo is playing on a another level, too bad his team will let him down.

Was really excited to watch Croatia-Argentina today, but my satellite had other ideas.

Croatia is a very underrated team. Sleeper to keep advancing.


I'm rooting for Iceland to get through now. Would love to see them over Argentina.

im hoping for an Iceland win tomorrow against Nigeria. Croatia looks like a team that could make it to final 4.

I haven't seen Serbia yet, but agree on Belgium and Croatia
Serbia got lazy yesterday. Belgium looks dominant offensively, but shaky on the back end. Starting to resemble prior Netherlands squads that had high octane attacks but poor defenses which always caught up to them.

What a strike by Kroos.

Yesterday was the best day of the tournament so far.

Panama is so damn bad. And to think, the US couldn't qualify over them.

Been watching.

I'm mainly rooting for France (since they lost the Euro). but also Colombia, Mexico, Sengal and Nigeria.

You didn't miss much. Dirty game. Ref lost control of the players. Should have been a couple of red cards issued.

Only Mexico has a win in the World Cup for the Western Hemisphere.
Forgot about Uruguay. They had 2 wins at the time. Granted they came against 2 awful teams though

Spain and Portugal were this close to being eliminated. I wonder if the refs will be as generous to home team Russia as they were for South Korea(vs Italy) in 2002.

Please, for the sake of God don't ever drag up that game again, the most rigged game of all times and it still hurts

I think FIFA rewarded them with the 06 title. The USA-Italy game was terribly reffed too but in favor of Italy (granted it wasn't a knockout game). FIFA just wanted to improve the popularity of the World Cup in Korea/Japan so they couldn't afford both home teams eliminated early.
