Italy's third game is on thursday. The first they played ok, the second they didint play very well. the result of tie was deserved by noth teams although Italy had scored for the US. I know that if they can play to there potential they can have a very competetive team, they just need that drive to perform well. Hope they can do well.

Portugal Mexico 2-1. Mexico faces Argentina. Can't wait for the USA game tomorrow.
Argentina Holland tied. Figures right in.
I'm interested in Korea's game. No reason, just interested.
Will you walk into my parlour? said the Spider to the Fly,
Tis the prettiest little parlour that ever you did spy;
The way into my parlour is up a winding stair,
And I've a many curious things to show when you are there.

Oh no, no, said the little Fly, to ask me is in vain,
For who goes up your winding stair
-can ne'er come down again.

Ya the italy australia game.. I'm sorry but everyone is saying italy got lucky, that so is the opposite.. aussies were very lucky in that game.. first italy dominated the whole first half.. then in the second got wrongly sent off with a red card which everyone knows was clearly a bad call but everyone seems to not mention that one because of the penalty call... even with a man down italy had defence that could not even come close to being broken down, australia ended the game with 2 scoring chances the whole game, both of which buffon easily handled. The penalty decision was the right one only because the australian made no attempt at the ball and dove soley to get in the way of grosso, not only that but he extended his enitre body and stuck out his elbow to catch grosso, because of that the ref awarded the penalty kick, a much deserved victory.

Did any see Fr vs Sp? It was great!!!
I do feel for Australia--that was so not right.
Can't wait to see Br vs Fr. Br will probably win but who knows??

Here's a question....

Which team has the best uniform...color combinations? Does anyone wear purple??

After lookin at the reply, it seems Italy was awarded a gift PK.

But that happens in all sports. The refs only get one look, and it is not always the right look from the right angle. Anyone hear about the Texas Rangers baseball team the other night? Probably one of the worst calls (if not the worst) in years - most people feel that the umpire knew he had made a mistake, but what was done was done.

Not according to leading sport psychologists and professional betters. Those guys should know.

That's an oversimplification.

It's sad to loose that way, I know.
As Italian, I would have preferred a clear victory.
But, as Italian, I can't forget that, when Italy was severely, unjustly penalized - not to say 'robbed' - in 2002 ( a player expelled with no reason and an absolutely regular goal recalled ) I don't remember, and I have good memory, a great solidarity toward us ( only Spanish newspaper titled "Italia tenía razón" - Italy was right - and only after they lose unjustly too ) ; on the contrary, our team was made fun of ( "Italians always complain etc etc etc", the usual stereotypes ).
Moral of Fable ? This is the bitter taste of Soccer.

Australia was robbed, no doubt, never in a world soccer championship, a referee gives a doubtly penal at the last minute and then he is again in an other game, so there is something weird, anyway, tomorrow we (we is argentina)play against germany, what do you think? who is going to win?
I have to say argentina, 2-1.
