I put money on Mexico so this was an exciting game for me too. So close!

Apart from Colombia, South American teams have been underwhelming so far.

Waiting for comments from Sophie......................

But European teams have so easy qualifying, and you can see it in the WC too, while SA teams keep on dominating...

CONCACAF is off to a pretty nice start to the World Cup at 3-1-1. Beating Uruguay, Ghana, Cameroon, and tying Brazil. Honduras is the weak link so far.

That's funny, because I thought it was the other way...with that, I'm guessing it was even.

I don't know how others saw the Mex-Brazil game but can we call it a 'beautiful' game anymore??? Not really complaining but lately and coming after the US/Ghana game it looks to me a player can get killed out there if he's not 'heads up' checking things out constantly. I now the Brazilians are really really good but I'm not sure , how to say it, if they 'samba' anymore. Wih the way the game is today nobody gives'em any time anymore..;-)...

Mexico proved to the world that Brazil is nothing to fear.

Same with holland. The end of tiki taka! This is anyone's cup. England played more like a South American team than Argentina, Brazil and Uruguay! Chile and Colombia were the only two SA teams to me that stuck out at all.

Costa Rica killed it! Beautiful. And Bosnia held on against Argentina. The US beat Ghana. C'mon guys this cup is totally unpredictable unlike South Africa 2010

omg, why do you have to be SO damn rude!!!

I wrote a comment congratulating USA fans on their victory and all i get is s**t from you, i presume you are a messi hater. Please put me on your ignore list, im super nice and dont deserve to read this from you.




Now, to soccer: i believe argentina wasnt near nowhere their potential and they won, and i think messi scored a fantastic goal and will continue scoring, and the team will continue improving.
