The offside doesn't matter, the Dutch were far and away the better team today.

Still, I have hope, the last Italy started any tournament this badly was the 1982 World Cup........

Ask the most brilliant offensive team of the 80's, 1982 Brazil, if that's correct.

The Euro site I looked at says the controversy still goes on and it looks like there will be some kind of official report.

Of course the play wasn't interrupted because the goalie from the same team pushed the Italian player. It's just odd that a player off court counts as active.

Massive day in Switzerland today, and not just with Italy getting comprehensively smashed by the Netherlands. That nil-all draw between the underated Romanians and the French could be a critical result in the longer run.

He explained the rule was brought in to stop players deliberately stepping off the field of play to make an opponent offside.



So that must settle it then. It's a legal goal and van Nistelrooy was not offside.
LOL

Boy, lots of people upset that even after the ref unfairly reduced Italy to 10 men with lots of time to go the Aussies STILL couldn't win....

that first dutch goal yesterday was NOT offside. serves italy right for their shambles of a display.

good on the dutch, i hope they go all the way through. them, with the spanish.

that leads me to the reason i'm posting. why the HELL is fabregas not starting? if i make a team with the best players in the world today, he's in the starting 11.

and then when he does come on, it's at the expense of torres?? yeah i know the game was over already, but am i the only one who wanted to see what these two could do together?

other than make great looking children. heaven's to betsy, gang, they're good lookin' dudes.

Halfback passes to the center. Back to the wing. Back to the center. Center holds it. Holds it. Holds it...

Didn't see Spain-Russia game but I'm not watching one more halftime of the lame passes of the defense line of the title defenders. Boo on Sweden as well.
