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

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

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... :sad:

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. :sad:

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

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.

Italy won with 2-0 and will go to the second round... Ghana beat the VS with 2-1 and also will go to the second round.... I didn't expect Ghana would reach the second round. but it's great for them :)

...see the replay, if you get to see it, he made a horrible call!:eek:
It was a horrible call, but I guess it would've been a tie without that goal, and the USA still wouldn't have advanced. I love the US and support them, but now my two other teams, Germany & Argentina, are set to meet in the QFs. I wish they could've been on opposite sides of the draw.

Then there's England, which I am :hearts:-ing, but mainly cuz I am a gay whore. HOTTT!!!! :kiss: :kiss: :kiss: :drool: :drool: :drool:

usa just didnt deserve to win, they have not played with the energy and determination that they should have

they turned it on with 30 mintues to go and got great chances but you cant win a soccer match playing 30 out of 90 minutes.

im kind of glad there out bc watching them is so frustrating, i really dont like their style of play

now its time to root the italians and dutch on hard!!!!
