I've been enjoying it too - at least what I've been able to watch of it.

Not enough players removing their shirts for my liking, but aside from that ...

Make sure you watch Shaqiri's goal, then, MK

Yeah ... but nobody wants to see THAT. ;)

(even if the rumors prove true and he becomes a Saint)

Argentina through by the skin of their teeth, wow.... They now face France in the next round. What a great game that should be!

The South Korea-Germany game today was a lot of fun (unless you were rooting for Germany, obvi). The end-to-end back and forth was thrilling.

It is sooooooooooooooooo difficult to watch football in a work setting when I'm used to watching in a bar.
SO MANY BAD HABITS THAT MUST BE CURBED.
This kind of nail-biter put my curbing skills to the test!

Germany not advancing from the group stage is just shocking in football terms (apat from the defending WC holder, they are the No 1 rated country in current FIFA rankings). But it is their well-deserved fate. But for the miraculous 95th min. goal against Sweden, they wouldn't have won a single game. And they simply didn't look good in any of the 3 games.

A;ready looking forward to the Brazil-Mexico match-up in the next round.

Not expecting much from tomorrow's England-Belgium clash as both teams have already secured the next round, but I'll be watching it of course.

stupid result for Belgium beating England. This should've been a 0-0 game, instead Januzaj scores and now Belgium is on target to meet Brazil in the quarters. When instead they could've been on the other side of the bracket, where the road to the WC final was open to them. Wow.

Why so afraid of Brazil?  They havenít looked that impressive.

I get that with advancement assured, neither side should have been risking cards or injuries in their third match.  But you donít have to actively punt, either.

France-Argentina (4-3) best match of the WC so far. Pure propaganda for the game.

Russia (ranked #70 on the latest FIFA world rankings) on its way to the WC final. Putin has ordered it this way. Hence it will happen.

There was very little in that game which would suggest corruption that I could see. Spain barely threatened and there weren't any strange calls. While I was rooting for Spain the whole time, I didn't think they actually deserved to win it.

Oh, Belgium.  Why are you always like this?

Sorry, Euro60.

I think I aged about 10 years in 2 hours time this afternoon... Wow, just wow.

This is such a fun WC.
