I think the US played pretty damn well considering the circumstances.

I hope the referee gets a red card and is booted from the tournament.

No. Lots of effort for the wrong reasons, and the US efforts weren't very skillful or creativr, and the Italians didn't come to play and couldn't regroup when they realized they had a game to play. Plus the Ref had too much say in the game. Absolutely not even close to the best game so far.

From an individual team performance, Spain vs. Ukraine and Argentina vs. Serbia.

Best game so far I'd say is still Argentina Ivory Coast

So we will have 2 games of the desesperates , Italy X Czech , who loses probably is goodbye . Even worse with US X Ghana , so pretty rocking games are coming .

In Italy's case specially , if they tie , depending of Ghana , they face Brazil . If Italy loses , and Ghana wins , then Italy home , and Ghana Brazil . Pretty Interesting.

Bad Choice for Ghana , they could have made lots of goals , and they will need it for the classification , specially coz this can make they face Brazil . Wow cant wait for next round , I love WC

What a weird game - 3 red cards and Italians scoring on their own side.

i love how the americans on tv were moaning about the referee etc, now granted he was giving too many cards, but the USA set the tone for a game like this right from the kickoff with all the fouling, and it backfired on them. they decided to clatter the Italians from the kickoff.

weren't there americans in here saying how awful it was that australia played like"animals" and always fouling or something the other day? well the american team fouled, knocked people over etc more than most teams i've seen so far...

they did very well to hang on for the draw, that said Italy were very dissapointing.

No way , save for the PKs , and the off-side all the cards he gave was completely right . Would rather him than the guy that let Irans kick portugals asses.

BTW and the machine guns on the mouths keep on , the Kewell I think from Australia said that ' it was the same thing , playing Brazil or Liechtenstein ' Ha right .......

This is what I think...

The US played better overall despite the high foul count in the first half. Italy could've played much better. They could've shown more coordination amongst their forwards. And the red cards against the US were underserved and unfair. This is coming from a guy that was rooting for Italy for sentimental reasons. lol.

The next time I see that annoying term 'PK' I'm gonna throw a brick thru my window!

The Americans played a very physical game that the Italians had trouble handling, Italy were poor though. The ref was right with the red cards as well...too many yellows maybe, but the reds I found just.

I found it quite a tense and exciting match....not pretty granted but very exciting. The best game so far has been the Argentinian demolition of Serbia Montenegro....that was glorious footballrools:

I would say that the best game so far , at least for the 1st half , was I Coast X Holland . Argentina's , well it was one team play , Serbia should never got into the field with all those problems.
