Yep... I get playing counterattacks, but there is no need to start them from your own box! Against Portugal they need to get the midfield clogged, because if Cristiano gets it in the last third, well...

That was a fantastic win last night, I am sore from shouting. Its always good
to play crap and still manage to grind out a result
Yes both mentally and physically.

Portugal no doubt will be giving it all they have. I'd have to think they'll be like a wounded lion out there. Looking at the Ghana game I just wish the US could hold onto the ball better. And I hope Dempsey can breathe with that broken nose. Maybe they might have to strap on oxygen tank on him or something...;-)...

Looking forward to the games today...

Brazil and Mexico about to start. I think Mexico will have a strong game BUT I'm not sure they can beat the home team. If pressed to predict the final score I would have to say: BRA 2- MEX 1. We shall see. Enjoy, everyone!

-Cheers.

GO Mexico ! We are wearing our Mexican soccer jerseys that we bought there last week.
We always pull for Mexico, mainly because we have cool Mexican soccer stuff that we pick up on our ventures there. If we visited a different country every year, like say, Greece, we would probably be wearing Greek jerseys and wanting Greece to win. But since we go to Mexico, instead of buying souvenirs, we buy Soccer gear as a souvenir.
It is all about the uniform.

Oh and the food.

That was the best game by a goalkeeper I've ever seen.
