It would have been great to see the U.S. play the Japs.

This WC had the potential to be one of the best ever but it's starting to lose some of its magic imo. None of the big teams are up to their usual level. Germany was only really impressive against Portugal but it couldn't get past Ghana and is struggling with Algeria. The Netherlands were great against Spain (second half) but could have performed much better in the other games. Brazil needed some luck to beat Croatia and couldn't get past Mexico or Chile. Argentina scraped past all the teams in their group with 1 goal difference (and only beat Iran in extra time). Uruguay was hopeless without Suarez. France was in a relatively easy group but struggled against Nigeria tonight. England, Portugal, Italy and Spain are all out in the group stage. We had Costa Rica vs. Greece in the KO round The WC is supposed to be the stage where the greatest national teams excell but we've seen far too little of that so far. Let's hope it gets better in the coming matches.

How I hope and wish it was other than The Usual Suspects (i.e., Germany, France, Netherlands, Brazil) heading towards the WC finals.

Would love to see others get into the mix someday.

A Mexico loss is a win for the Southern California police departments. No win, no celebratory rioting........

A clear PK , please. even after Hector Herrera got kicked in the HEAD, in the box, no PK was called, oh, I know why it wasn't called, because Herrera DIDN'T THROW HIMSELF in the box, and continued fighting for the ball and tried to score. maybe if he would of flopped the ref would have called it, just maybe.
