OH HELL TO THE NAW!!!!! Ghana scores on a penalty kick!

I am so hot, y'all. I'm gonna take that ref to the nightwater!

===============================

Okay, I don't really know all the rules of soccer. Was that a completely valid penalty against the USA? What did the US player do that constitutes a foul?

that in no way should have been a penalty kick
his hands were on the sides
they were both going for a 50-50 ball
some body contact, but that is soccer
absolutely horrid call

and before people start telling me im just being biased because im american, i agreed with most of the calls in the last game

I didn't see the incident so I can't comment.

But at this moment, Ghana and Italy will qualify...

i've just seen it there because i was watching Italy v Czech Rep. and it did look a soft penalty claim.
these things happen in football, the referee only has a split second to make the decision without the benefit of multi-angled tv replays it's shit when a dodgy decision goes against your team, but these things tend to even themselves out. like the USA's goal had a whiff of offside about it if you ask me.....

there was no hand contact, no pulling, no grabbing
hands were completely on the sides!! so if a bump constitutes a penalty there will be penalties on every 50-50 ball.

and the u.s. goal was not offsides, he was completely behind the defenders when beasley sent it foward, they showed the overhead on the replays

Ghana beat the Czech. Rep. rather handily, in soccer terms.
The Czech.'s beat the USA 3-0, very handily, in any terms.

Ghana should beat the USA. They're good. They're also
fun to watch, like the Brazilians.

But, the USA had better put up a better fight than they
are so far. Gutsy isn't cutting it. This is not the best team
they could have put together, sad to say. They didn't play
that well leading up to the World Cup. Anyone who took
that #5 ranking seriously was on something. They aren't
a top 16 team.

Hopefully, they'll get a new coach, who doesn't whine quite
so much, some younger players, and get them out there on
the world scene for 4 years. Get them some international
experience, and get their heads knocked around by some
seasoned teams, and learn something for the next go around.

They play Mexico a lot, and think that's good world cup
preparation. It's not. Mexico isn't that good. Get some
new blood in the USA Soccer organization, they're still
living off 8 years ago.

Yeah, it seemed like a terrible call to me, but I only had Americans telling me it was horrendous so I didn't know how much bias was affecting their opinion. I'm glad you agree.

Poor USA.

Oh well, the way I look at it, even if we do advance, Brazil is going to take us to the nightwater!!!

It's 2-1 for Ghana now against the VS

Italy against Czech Republic is 2-0

So, at this moment Italy and Ghana will go to the second round.

Good luck for the 2017 season:

• Ana Ivanovic
• Angelique Kerber
• Kiki Bertens


Kirsten Flipkens, Caroline Wozniacki, Serena Williams, Petra Kvitova, Jelena Jankovic, Belinda Bencic, Sorana Cirstea

Has J-Baby been banned? I wonder where she is. Maybe she took one Lunesta too many

MARIA SHARAPOVA: "Amélie, you know it doesn't really matter at this point. I mean, I'd love to, I mean, Amélie is No. 1 in the world. She's playing great tennis. You know, I love that challenge of going out there and competing against the best in the world."
You'd love to what, Maria?
