Cut it out already. France was the better team. Routine and cleverness beat the Spanish team.
1) Was it not the free kick that got them a goal?

2) I agree, not all offsides are true. That said, I think a wrong decision on offisde is less damaging to the game than the unfairly awarded foul that results in a goal. (a free kick itself is the opportunity for a goal)

I agree France was better. They don't need diving, then.

So...now that 8 teams are left who do you think will win? My favourite is Argentina, they had the most consistent game of all teams.

48 hs. before the match.

Pablo's level of nervousness: 5/10.

The funny thing is that all Argentine papers are more worried about how the ref is going to steal this one for Germany than about the German team. Sad that this World Cup has been so badly refereed that people are truly worrying about this.

Thanks, Maja. I will pick you up tonight and take you out for dinner to compensate.

OK, we could go on with this forever, but:

1) A free kick is 'just' a free kick. The chance of scoring is not very big from the position it was given.

2) Henry would have been alone with the goalkeeper. I'd say that would highly likely have influenced the result.

I think it's still pretty open. Argentina need to play better than against Mexico, if they want to stay in the tournament. It would be a surprise to see them leave already in the quarter finals, but right now, I'm not sure I think it's any less surprising if Germany had to leave in the quarter finals.

Former Italian and Juventus star Gianluca Pessotto is in a serious condition in hospital.

He fell from a window at Juventus' club headquarters, the club's press office confirmed.

"We don't know how this has happened. We'll see," Juventus chief press officer Marco Girotto told Gazzetta Dello Sport.

"Gianluca reportedly has multiple fractures but they are not life threatening."

Pessotto is currently Juventus' team manager - a role he took up almost exactly a month ago after he quit his playing career.

The former defender spent 11 years with The Old Lady after joining the club in 1995.

During his time with the club he won six Serie A titles and the UEFA Champions League.

Former Juventus team-mates Alessandro Del Piero and Gianluca Zambrotta have flown home from the World Cup in Italy to visit Pessotto

some people are calling it a suicide attempt which makes more sense considering whats been going on in italy at the moment.

Alright, predict the semifinals.

I'd say:

Portugal - Brazil

Italy - Argentina

Could be completely wrong
