Looks like Mexico made it on goal difference I was actually in Mexico during the last world cup - they LOVE their national team over there.

Yes but there has already been a problem with Domenech, and the only reason he stayed is because the PLAYERS support him, and refuse him to leave,, so it's to late to say "oh no we were wrong", when you make a choice you have to assume it, now they act on a really childish way, and they just let down all their fans, all the France, the people who pay to see them play, and they can't even do an effort, they played terribly, they refused to train.

There was some who go cry at domenech's room the night before the match saying they were sorry, that they wasn't agree, but couldn't say no to the others players.
So if they wanted to make their revolution they could have:

1) Be agree

2)Waited until the end of the wold cup, avoiding this humiliation.

3)Act like man's to solve it, not like spoiled teen agers.

Aww, South-Africa. Would've been nice to see them go through, but Mexico does have more chance at success (even if they lost to Uruguay and will probably play Argentina next). Can't say I'm sad for France, but I'll miss the rows and scandals.

Ah, a pity what happened today with S. Africa. If they had played the first two games the way they played this one they probably would make it to the next stage. I was supporting them today.

Then they get Kaka sent off - If I was Brazil I'd let Portugal get a draw in the last game just to spite the Ivorians.
I've kinda lost the respect I had for their football - which mainly consisted on the admiration I have for their individual players. I still enjoy Drogba, though, as he was one of the few that didn't resort to violence.

In my modest opinion he's an idiot, but it's not my place to label a coach of another nation. How does he orchestrates a team with such potential in such an ungodly way is beyond my wildest nightmares.

What also was very pathetic was how Brazil got handed a goal instead of a red for Fabiano's Harlem Globetrotter act.

Personally, I think the old fogeys in charge need to hurry up and retire, or die(Blatter, Platini etc) so some young blood can come in and introduce a video review system that can overrule stuff like this. There's ways of doing it to make sure the flow of the game isnt interrupted.

Its the 21st Century FIFA - wake up! Its just ridiculous how the whole crowd can watch how it was an unfair decision, but the decision still stands!

Also: Bye-Byes to Greece and France. You play like fools... you get ousted like fools. I'd love to see Italy go next(Boo@Lippi), but they have a knack for clinging on...

OT: I thought after the New Zealand match that a deliberate hand-ball was red? Maybe because Fabiano made two, there isn't a card color for that yet? What's red + red?
Game was played after that...Ivory Coast gave up and started irritating...

The game was immensely better than their first two ones. Still nothing wonderful but at least that was watchable.

When have England ever been inspiring to watch? They play awful football generally - are usually negative, and haven't produced a player who can properly dribble a football since Gascoigne; Not a team for the purists...

Wow, French out and now Italy out. Great! Had hoped England would've been out, too, but you can't get it all. Beautiful goal by Quagliarelli, though.

A good game between Slovakia and Italy, lots of goals, lots of thrills. I'm glad that Italy is out, but I feel sorry about New Zealand. They haven't lost a single game and they're out anyway They deserved better.

I'm hoping for a good show too. Although I think people are expecting more of Portugal than what'd be advised. Just a single game against a particularly weak adversary is not the best way to analyze how good a team is.

Also, if we win, I'm getting a day off on monday so yeah. ^^

Agreed. I was under impression that the tie was decided between the two teams even before the game started. A boring game that made me remember why I dislike Dunga's style so much.

But Cristiano Ronaldo voted as the best player on that match? Please.

Hopefully Spain (game's starting now it seems) will provide a better show.

Nope, Chile plays Brazil and Spain Portugal.

I was hoping for something more for Chile, I really love their game. They really put Spain to the test with beautiful combinations in the first half, it's just a shame of those defensive errors and the recklessness of some players. Young team, holds much promise I think, but I doubt at this time, they can stop Brazil.

1/8 finales are looking good. England v Germany and Spain v Portugal are big matches on paper, though I have more hopes for a good game for the latter than the former.

Yeah, they were just holding off on that last part of the second half.

Chile's still a tough nut to crack. Between our South American neighbours, their football is one of the less liked for me, that's why it's such a pleasant surprise to see they doing so well right now. Still, I don't think their overly offensive style will work against better rounded up teams, like Spain just now.

In fact, and let me put it forward before I'm proven wrong in the next matches, this Cup may be in Africa, but it's seemingly more fit for the S.American teams than anyone else.

I know I'm a biased Barca fan, but when Spain do their lovely passing game, it's so pretty to watch(as long as it's followed up by attacking football).

If anyone remembers one of the very first games when Capello was in charge of England, they were playing France. For the first 45 minutes they were trying SO hard to keep the ball at each others feet and knock it around. They couldn't manage it properly, and it was extremely funny

Uruguay 2-1 South Korea

USA 1-2 Ghana

I kind of expected Uruguay to score more, but the Ghana-USA match was really good. Ghana deserved the win but I think the US could have pulled it to penalties. But they played really well though, too bad they got knocked out.

You said it. A very, very good match indeed. And I'm happy for seeing Ghana through; at least Africa keeps one of it's countries on the competition.

Great games both I love knockout football!! Comiserations to US fans, though you can be proud of your players for putting in their all in every match - something you can't say about some of the first class footballing nations.

Tonight is going to be epic!!

I would love to see Mexico get revenge for 2006, but I dont think they have the confidence to do it... though being a Barca fan I really want to see El Phenomon get on the scorer sheet!

I would prefer to see England beat Germany, but based on form displayed so far..... who knows.

Little Pico, our Chihuahua knows who he's going for tonight

The World Cup is finally starting....

Have to honestly say the US was playing very well. The technique and star players simple aren't there, but it was a nice match either way!

End of the first half of the exhilarating England vs. Germany match. And what about that legitimate goal annuled by the referee? Jabulani really is the avenger, for some of us haven't forgotten about the similar goal England scored in 1966.
