Argentina looked pretty so/so to me vs Nigeria.

They really should have scored more goals.

Default Greece vs. South Korea

Well done, S. Korea. They played like a finely-tuned, well-oiled machine. Greece was...what were they doing?? Disorganized, no coordination. It's like 1994 (http://g.sports.yahoo.com/soccer/world-cup/news/skorea-eases-to-2-0-win-over-lackluster-greece--fbintl_ap-wcup-skorea-greece.html - broken link). One of the guys - Lalas or Martinez - was mentioning that the Korean have been passing the ball to the wrong Greek players, who don't know how to do with it. I hope they can squeeze a tie with Argentina.

Way to go, USA! Rather good performance, even if Dempsey's goal was the softest EVER. We held Rooney down.

GO USA!

Can I just say to England nyah nyah nyah! US could have won if they hadn't just stood around during the second half. The goalkeeper saved the game.

Or if Altidore's shot had gone in.

Yep.

The stress of watching this game! I had to keep guzzling beer to remain partially calm.

Altidore did really well. Problem is that we lack a genuine penalty box specialist to lead the attack. Otherwise, Altidore might have had another option other than shooting to the near post.
