It's good to see football get more attention in the USA. Hopefully they manage to knock out Portugal in the next game, I think they have a good chance because portugal are kinda broken and shaky right now and with no Pepe or Concentrao in def. and an unfit ronaldo there is hope for them.
Watching England now...of course Suarez scored. Hope Uruguay win this one. I hope Germany or Argentina win the World Cup though. If Argentina does it nobody can question Messi's status as one of the best ever. (the Cry7 fans keep bringing Messi down for not having a world cup title on his resume..lol)

I don't agree with the criticism Rooney is getting from some - played out of position yet again in the opener and last night he was starved of service from midfield resulting in him dropping far too deep to get any possession.
Gerard and Henderson have been exceptionally disappointing
and our defence was appalling.
Six defenders in the box and still Suarez, the only Uruguayan in the box, gets a free header - hate to say it but Terry would never have allowed that.
And would Ashley Cole have allowed Suarez so much space for the second?
But England never looked up for it and Hodgson's selections and tactics have to be questioned.
He's far too negative and stuck in an age long since gone - football has moved on so much, sadly it seems England is getting left behind.
Its looks a truly open tournament at present, but guess its still only early days - but I still think my 6/1 for Argentina looks a cracking value bet.

The USA v Germany will end in a draw, have no fear.
Germans have history of helping each other out where this sort of thing is required to get through.
(i.e 1982 v the other German nation - Austria)
What nationality is the US coach I wonder?
