By the way, its not ''poor Tahiti''. They are playing the world champions in an international competitive competition. Its a dream come true for those guys. I'd love to be a Tahiti player tonight.
Yep. Don't like a team scoring big time on you? Go out and stop them.

lol @ Messi, id let him claim me as a dependent if I got a cutback.

I had conversations with some people saying its BS football doesn't have a "mercy rule". It made me laugh, I cant believe I had a conversation with grown men about a mercy rule. How sensitive do you have to be. If you enter a competition you have to be ready to hold your own, if you cant then I guess you lose 10-0.

Teams like Albania and Macedonia have become experts almost at avoiding going in like lambs to the slaughter.

These two teams you mentioned always had respectable squads and are a real headache for European powerhouse like England. Remember how many times England played Macedonia in the past few years and everytime it was pretty difficult for English side to get the points. Couple of draws I think....

What is your definition of a respectable squad ? Real headache because they know they are crap and they know how to frustrate teams :| Haiti would have to learn that.

Well, I wouldn't say they're crap. Right now both of them are on par with let's say Scotland.
Half of their squads playing in Italy, Germany, Swiss League etc...they are not crap as you may think.

I may don't like their style of play either, but couple more quality players in their squads and they can beat any side on a day.

Is Montenegro crap?

Game is heating up now. Italy brought it level with a great goal. Then Neymar made it 2-1 and now Freddo bar has made it 3-1.

Big mistake by the referee. Cant give a penalty and then the goal.

In all fairness to Italy's defense, not all goals today were scored onside.

still the Italian teams of old would never concede more than 1 goal in a match. 3 against japan and 4 against Brazil is absolutely unacceptable
