Id much rather we meet Germany than Ecuador, Germanys centre backs are abysmal, ideal for Rooney to capitalise on, but i do think Gerrard and Lampard dont work, we need that holding midfielder to open up the midfield and get us some space up front. time to try Carrick next game.

Who agrees that the teams that go through in Group D wont get further than the 2nd round, its such a weak group.

Well, based on that embarassing performance... it seems that the team from Group C that faces Mexico will have an easier time... if you can't beat Angola, you do not deserve to go far in this tournament...

We'll see how Portugal does tomorrow.

You didn't see the several times IC players got knocked down/pulled down in the penalty area?
The first 45 minutes were great.
The second 45 not so much.
Not good at all.
The "not a lot of action and a low tempo" comment was about the second half.

Dutch defense was a total mess.
Ivory Coast should have taken more advantage of that.
To me, it didn't seem like they pressed hard enough.
Until like 5 minutes before the end.
If they had started earlier, I'm pretty sure they would have scored.

Where all substitutes for Ivory Coast more offense players?
With fresh blood on the field, I would have expected more.

Then again, I think substituting Van Nistelrooy for Landzaat already made it clear that The Netherlands were taken a more defensive roll.

Didn't really see any serious fauls happening that would justify a penalty for Ivory Coast.

O well, I'm watching through orange colored glasses, of course.

Serbia was atrocious today but the Argentinians are GREAT, better than I expected, I guess.

Angola is pretty terrible, I have no idea how the Mexicans couldn't win that game.

I feel sorry for Ivory Coast, had they gotten a better draw I think they'd have made it past the first round.

I still think Brazil might pump 3 or 4 goals past the Australians. If you have to play them, it's best to play them before they have had a chance to warm up.

It's official , you had no idea what the media said here about , I think every world , anyway , it's clear the big favorite of the cup now : Argentina , close followed by Spain , it's no use against that spectacular team . It's a bloody unbelievable team , they did the finest goals so far , they are unbeatable . Now what everyone was waiting it came , we got ourselves a real favorite

P.S.: A certain 'criticized' team is loving all this .

Don't know. Was it in the finals of a major tournament ? (by major tournament I do of course mean the European Championships or World Cup).

Angola is terrible, but the have Iran next. The worst African team might actually be the only one to qualify.......feel bad for Ivory Coast being drawn in that group.

Looks like the European federation was right to get pissed off at FIFA for taking away one of their spots given how poorly the Africans have done with a record number of participants
