^ Oh yes, his antics cost him the award, not the fact that he didn't have any major impact on the tournament and was not really an unknown before the World Cup.

After watching Englands dire performances in this world cup, it made me remember a discussion I had with a friend in the days just after ericsson became the England manager, he asked me what I would regard as success for England from that point on, my reply was if we get to the 2002 world cup, & reach the qtr final, he looked puzzled & said he expected more from England, but then as now, looking at Englands history in major tournaments how can we justify ever going to any major tournament & expect to win, '66 excluded our progress in the world cup has always been mediocre, & as for the Euro Chps, lets not even go there, & yet bookmakers have already got us as favourites for 2008

I have a funny thing to show you! This is a parody to several teams and I laughed a lot when I saw it... I hope nobody gets offended by this, it's just humor... The guy who made it is portuguese but not evenPortugal escaped this parody... Take a look

If anybody wants to know the things written in portuguese just ask... But this is funny mainly because of the images.

Back after a week, here's what I thought about the games:

Eng-Por: for Rooney's nasty foul and pushing aside Ronaldo (even if he did demand a card); Englad just doesn't have any luck in penalties.

Fra-Bra: Zidane, he was at his best. After this game, I thought "France will win this tournament". France were overall the better team.

Ger-Ita: I thought Italy was the better team. They hit the goal side bar twice in overtime before the goals too.

Fra-Por: while Henry did act it out a bit, there was contact from the Portuguese player. Was a bit tiring seeing Portugal team crying foul over and over again.

I.
Interesting you say that because after France won in '98, their coach had a little dig at the Italian team by saying "This is a win for offensive football"

Anyway, I'm in the same boat - background is French but boyfriend's family is straight from Italy and the Italians have endeared themselves so much to me over the past year....
And of course, there's the fact the Italians haven't won in 24 years...

But then again there's Zidane, my fave player of all time

But since I'm in Toronto and am looking for a big party, I think I'll cheer on Italy but wear a French shirt!

My family background is equally french/italian. But I speak french and lived in a Francophone country in Africa, so I'm definitely cheering for France. Too bad Ghana was knocked out but good for them for getting into the final 16!

Penalties tonight, eh? Not unlikely!

I don't really care who wins, but I think Italy might. Barthez will make some really silly mistake and the Italians will score, and the game could end 1-0 with France not being able to penetrate the Italian defence.

Portugal sucks and don't even deserve to be in the final four. Germany is by far the better team.

Germany 3
Portugal 0
