Good lord!! This is anyone's cup! All the teams are kinda evenly matched. Greece I would say is terrible but Australia, mostly Cahill, gave Chile a hard time. Colombia tore into Greece and I don't even want to being up Spain. Lastly, Croatia as robbed, they could've done better.

Greece is not that bad. They had 2 or 3 solid chances to get a goal. Their group is still pretty wide open, But Colombia is sitting pretty.

If South American teams are owning this WC so far, does that mean Uruguay belongs to Africa or Oceania now?

Lol at the Uruguayans who laughed at us yesterday, they have had the same fate today. They only suffered 3 because it was Costa Rica. In a match against Italy or England playing that way, it would be like 1-7

Italy-England coming soon. Call me crazy but I'm putting my money on England. However, Pirlo will score either a foul kick or a penalty *visionary troll mode OFF*

LOVE THIS WC!

Uruguay sucks, they sucked bad in the CONMEBOL, and, like always, they needed argentina help (who was already qualified first) to get a chance to play the playoffs. Argentina sent a D team (i didnt even know those players) to play against uruguay last match and they barely manage to beat us 3-2 (A vs A team argentina destroyed uruguay 3-0). Anyways, they have been sucking for the last 2 years, and anyone who seen conmebol qualys know this.

I should be in favour of all SA teams doing well, but the fact is i dont like how uruguay play, how dirty they are, and how insanely arrogant they are for 2010 and copa america, they think they are the best thing.


Oh well, they deserve what they got.

Congrats to costa rica


this WC is amazing so far. hopes it continues this way

Best match so far in the tournament. This WC is being awesome even though we were humiliated yesterday.

Argentina's show tomorrow. I'm having my heart divided even though I have no kind of links whatsoever with either Argentina or Bosnia whatsoever. I want Argentina to win but I'm also supporting Bosnia since this is their first WC ever in their history. Di Maria looks fit, and Messi also looks better than he did most of this season in Barça. The only "weak" part of this team is their midfielders since they are more physical than technical, but that is easily overcome with their attacking players.

I was impressed with Costa Rica beating Uruguay and disappointed with England. England had a few chances to equalize but it didn't pan out for them.

The next match is a few moments away! Ivory Coast vs Japan. I'm predicting 2-0 Japan.

-Cheers!

Love the drums, horns and the rattle in this Côte d'Ivoire match. Hypnotic at 4:30am.

Wow! This WC is most definitely full of surprises.

So far, most of the "Usual Suspects" showed up to the "dance," but forgot their steps, lost their rhythm, or both!

Italy's win over England is not much of a surprise.

A better effort from Greece would've been nice. Gotta give it up to Colombia for this thrill of a victory.

Japan's defeat was somewhat of a shocker. Ivory Coast's second half could not have been more exiting. The dynamics of the game visibly changed the second Drogba took to the field.

Never in my life would have imagined Uruguay getting royally spanked by . . . Costa Rica? Didn't expect such a lopsided win could be possible between these two teams. Way ta go Ticos!

Awesome f_cking World Cup so far!

Gonna hit my favourite Irish Pub on Monday to watch Iran vs Nigeria. I pray to God they play the song "Happy" when the Iranians take to the field.
