I found this article snippet:

Quote:
Paul Robinson claims the dry German pitches are hurting England's passing game.

Robinson admits the team has not played well during their World Cup campaign and believes the best is yet to come.

The Tottenham goalkeeper said: 'The conditions have made it hard for us.

'I think we are finding the pitches particularly difficult because they are not putting water on them.

'It's slowing our passing game down. We are finding it hard to get a rhythm.'

Old fox Zidane strikes again, and Henry ought to get an Oscar for the fake when he won that free kick for France. He clearly fouled the Spain player and grabbed his face and dived immediately.

Italy is lucky to get arguably the weakest team of all in Ukraine, and England is facing a card-filled Portugal. Some teams have all the luck.

I give Henry 9.7 out of 10 for DIVING

lets call it diving competition instead of football world cup


ITALY's striker dives
FRANCE's Henry does the same...but even better !!

Two things:

1) What Henry achieved from his diving was not a penalty or a red card to the opponent, just a free kick.

2) Have you guys forgotten the several times that Henry was declared offside, when, in fact, he wasn't?

Cut it out already. France was the better team. Routine and cleverness beat the Spanish team.

if you agree that Henry dived...I have nothing more to add...

I mean look at the acting...He put his hand on his face...as if he was elbowed...

I demand an OSCAR for Henry

France played OK... Brazil will beat them easily

GO BRAZIL

Yes, he acted, but I was trying to say that - although the refs in this tournament have been extremely shitty in general - refs have never been perfect. I don't think the guy in that game was that bad. Sometimes a decision goes unfairly against you, sometimes you are given something you shouldn't have had. Do *you* agree that Henry was falsely declared offside more than once?

While I can understand that many didn't have much respect for the French team before yesterday, I don't understand how so many of you can keep underrating them now. Beating that Spanish team is a remarkable achievement. If Germany or Brazil had done it, people would probably already declare them world champions.

Right now I think France and Italy are the two teams that could stop Brazil, contrary to how many of you probably feel.

Tell that to our no.1 goal scorer Michael Owen. Some teams would consider losing such a player to be awfully unlucky. Maybe even before the World Cup started.

I also demand one for Torres for that dive in the penalty area late on in the first half which many Spanish fans seem to have elected to forget. But, all in all I'm disappointed with Henry. Had it been anyone other than Puyol..then I don't think we would be talking about such an incident. Doesn't make it any less shameful..but it's the sad truth.
