England looked quite good yesterday, I think this might be their most talented team in recent years. I have them finishing second behind Italy

About the Andy Murray comment, I hope that's not a reference to him choosing a female coach? If so, not funny

They did look good I agree.

And no it is not? I am from a family of all females, I am not sexist and I think Mauresmo was a great appointment.

It is about this

Maybe you should think before branding someone sexist

Anyway - water under the bridge.

Wow! Bosnia is holding their own against Argentina. That own goal set them back but they're doing well

Surprisingly yes they've been rather timid. They also have like five Bosnian players on Messi.

I hope theyll be able to score. Ive lived in Argentina and love the place, but secretly always wish someone beats them in football cause they get too arrogant about it

Thank you for recognizing that America is a continent and not just the nation I live in, i.e., The United States OF America.

Tried to rep you but the CD gods would not allow it.

Switzerland won. This has been one of the most exciting WC's I've ever seen!

I didn't brand you a sexist, I was just wondering what you meant with that comment. As you surely know, there was backlash over Andy Murray appointing a woman to coach him as well. I thought you might have implied that he was less of a man for that, as I hadn't even heard of his England comments yet. Poor Andy

Anyway, back to football. Argentina hasn't been that impressive so far, Messi in particular has been a let down apart from the goal he scored (only his second goal ever in a WC game). I sympathise with Bosnia, it's their first ever WC and the country definitely deserves a break. Hopefully, the WC campaign will unite the Bosnian people, if only for a while.
