Rule us out at your peril!
I'm a die hard England fan, and I reckon by going onthe last 2 performances, we've screwed. harder than Madonna. And that's saying something.

CONK!! (Come On North Korea- current game)

Portugal just scored.

There is nothing to beat in this tournament, if England can recapture their qualifying form then they have nothing to fear from anyone and are well capable of beating any team.

A big if, but.....?


Ronaldo looks completely uniterested here.
Maybe the rain is reminding him of all his happy times in Manchester and he's ruing his greedy, glory seeking move to Madrid.

Wow, what a goal fest for Portugal

I kind of feel sorry for DPR Korea, but they are coming up against a pretty tough opposition. Portugal are looking real good....cant wait til they play Brazil...going to be an awesome game

And now 7-0!!!!

Ah ha.. Im glad I watched that game too.
Thought North Korea were gonna cause another up set with the way they played in the first 20 minutes...

How wrong was I!!

7-0 to Portugal.
Ronaldos goal made me laugh...

Dont want to be greedy, but I hope theres more goals in todays matches.

Ronaldo must have had a sneek view at half time and decided to step it up a notch or two!

He was a different player second half.

Can't wait for Brazil vs Portugal.... that promises to be a cracking game.
They said that Brazil beat Portugal 6-2 the last time these sides met.... I think it'll be a lot closer this time, but I hope as many goals

Yeah he was prety crap...as was the one who refereed our game. There was one icnident in particular where Bresciano got a 2 footed tackle from behind. Clear red card yet not called. At least the one in that game picked up a few dives, lol

I hate cheats

I know I say this every 4 years, but this world cup is the worst reffing I have ever seen in my life, they basically change the outcome of a game by poor decisions, and screw up a countries chance of getting through...They should go to a video ref, end of story.
As for send off, go to tribunal like in AFL and get suspended afterwards if you are at fault.

Between the trumpets and the refs, I feel like chucking a rock star move and throwing my tv out over the balcony.

The refs are bought and paid for...

FIFA as usual try to be politically correct when they appoint referees from all the football federations.

Some are good, some are crap.

And it's a bit of a lottery who get's who.

Whatever happened to that Italian ref with the bald head and bulbous eyes?

He was good

Pierluigi Collina.

He was very good, so they made him retire!

Pierluigi Collina was alegend. Alas, I think he was too old to ref anymore. I think they had already given him longer than usual so he had to retire.

Collina aka Death as we called him!
What a legend.
