    We'll be OK, I think. If we want to make the leap to being an elite team we have to get used to people playing for draws against us, and not allowing them to get easy goals.

    and Serbia gave it away...what a horrid mistake like that...

    all these mistakes though are making me wonder whether or not these matches were already set up...specially after reading about it before the world cup...

    The Germans played well tonight! I certainly do not want England to finish second in our group and have to play them in the round of 16.

    As a sports fan, how did you not like that game?

    Sure, it ended in a tie, but it was extremely exciting, beginning to end.

    It's only exciting if someone wins. Otherwise it's the sports version of TV filler episodes.

    And you realize without two absolutely bonehead mistakes by both sides, the game would have ended in a 0-0 tie.

    I think the stakes were a bit too high in the US vs. England match cause of the hype surrounding it that made everyone play to not lose instead of playing to win. That made the game a bit stale compared to last night's Aussie stomping by "zee" Germans...

    Looking forward to the matches today...not going to be easy following it at work though...

    That's just stupid to say.

    Now, I'm not going to argue that this was the most exciting game of all time, but the final twenty minutes or so we're incredibly action packed and tense. Both teams had chances to win the game in those final twenty minutes and I was absolutely on the edge of my seat.

    It might have slightly failed to live up to the hype placed on it, but to paint with such a broad brush and say that a sporting event is only exciting if one of the teams wins is not even close to being a true statement.

    True, true. He should definitely hold back QUITE a bit. The Danes aren't quite angelic themselves either though.

    Well... I've seen us play way better before, but 2-0? I'll take it .

    Lucky with the own goal. Could have made a few more with a little more luck OTOH aswell. So, I guess 2-0 is pretty much fair.

    I'm rooting for Japan. I don't think they have EVER won a game on a WC not played in Japan/South Korea.
