Cole was impressive in the first half. Joe Cole, I mean. Didn't watch the second because it was 4 bloody am.

Really happy for Sweden though. They're my 2nd team this World Cup and I hope they do well. Be tough against the Germans though.

That Match started at 5am here ....I liked the 2002 world cup, it was much more sleep friendly.

Argentina plays tomorrow...

Although we will be saving several players for the round of 16.

Still, it would be nice to get a win.

Back in 2002, there were some matches where I stayed up until 1 am local time to watch.

There were some other matches where I got up at 4 am to watch.

I had a very messed up sleep cycle that summer.

It's great over here in the U.S. - all the matches are done by the end of the afternoon, so I can come home and then watch whatever I taped when I want to.

If my memory serves me right, England were the far better team in the first half and in the second half Sweden were better. Even match i think. 2-2 was probably a fair result.

I disagree. England was better in the first half than they were in the second - due to some great solo performances by individual players. However, overall I would say that while the first half was rather equal, England's second half was embarrasing.

I'm sure they'll get better though, when they play the finals. However right now, I think their defence is too shaky to get past Brazil, Spain, Germany or Argentina.

Owen's off for the whole Cup.

How long will the fragile Rooney/Crouch axis hold up?

Taking four strikers, two of whom weren't fit in the first place and one that hasn't even played a minute of top flight league football was a massive gamble at best and utter idiocy at worst.

Injured Owen returning to England

Wednesday's scan confirmed the bad news for Owen
Michael Owen is out of the World Cup and flying back to England after a scan revealed the extent of his knee injury.
The 26-year-old striker twisted his right knee in the second minute of the 2-2 draw with Sweden in Cologne.

"Obviously it's a massive blow to suffer the injury - and be out of the World Cup. As soon as it happened I knew I was in trouble," said Owen.

Wow, they are talking at least 5 months out...

That was a fantastic counter striker goal by Portugal.
