Belgium has 29 shots of which 20 on target now (compared to 5 and 4 for the US) and still no goals. This has to be the most wasteful team I have ever seen in my life. Seriously, how is this possible?

the us shouldn't even have gotten out of the group stage, tbh.

im still laughing at the whole jozy thing. you'd think if hes ok, he should be in playing? at this point having him is pointless. let him it out the entire wc. hes just going to ruin whatever rhythem the group has( or doesn't)

Prior to the game, I figured they'd sub in Jozy around the 70th minute. He may be fit but you don't want to push it the first game out. Then the early injury and loss of a later sub changed everything.

well, im annoyed that the fact Belgium's pretty much won it, but in OT. if they had scored that goal during reg time id have made more money.

well, the us got out of the group stage which I thought they wouldn't due to their subpar passing and offense. theyneed to rethink that defense wins game, which it does in the NFL and not in soccer.

They have Germany to thank for that. If Germany hadn't thrashed Portugal that first game, it would've been Ronaldo & Co. against Belgium tonight.

Finally, 2-0! I was a bit scared this would go to penalties. Imagine how long that would take to decide a winner

Are you kidding? Penalties are the most exciting part because it could go either way.
