Wow Arroyo and Ecuador is going to have nightmares about that. He acted like he had 10 minutes left.

Another thing we have in common I'm also rooting for Netherlands first (of course) and France second.

Deserved win for Switzerland btw. I expected more from Ecuador.

This WC is already a lot more exciting than 2010. There have been a lot of close games, no draws, only two teams that failed to score, great atmosphere and lots of likeable teams. Hope it will stay like this

I know! I hope Honduras gives France a run for their money. But I don't think Bosnia will do much against Argentina. I predict a whomping against them. Argentina will win 5-0 or something crazy. Their first World Cup game will be disasterous.

I am looking forward to Argentina vs Bosnia game as well. It's Bosnia's first WC game ever, so although I'm rooting for Argentina (love that team), I wish Bosnia all the best. You'll never know, look at what happened to Spain

The people or the players? I remember to see Casillas crying. By the way I think the goal was 3 or 4 mins before the end of the match, I know that Netherlands could have made a goal, but 4 mins left is nothing.

Also: If your country doesn't qualify/gets eliminated, does anyone else root for their favorite club's players?

Lol so funny! they probably wanted pics because Gijón is not a place where important matches are played and people were happy to share and invite some drinks with their "guests" in the city. Nice story.
