    USA vs Greece (Live thread)

    USA will have to play a lot better to win. And they to have to improve a lot if they go out to win, because Greece is not in the same level of Spain and, specially, Argentina. The Americans show a lot of dificulties against zone defense. There's not enougth shooting to strech the defense to...

    Your absolutely right. He accepted the offer from your FA and then backed out when he realized his life would be a hell in England because of the tabloids. His life here is like heaven. He feels he doesnt have any pressure and thats the way he likes it. They would have a field day with him...

    Your right, you did it a nerve. I dont like my (national) team being called cheater. Especially for something that everybody does. Couldnt Henry continued his play tonight on the PK call tonight. Didnt he, insted, chose to embellish his fall. I hate the diving, injury faining, lack of fair play...

    Most are wishing him gone but it looks like he'll probably stay. I strongly dislike him, for a variety of reasons. You probably dont know but the disciplinary record with him here in portugal has been impecable. Not a single red card since he started coaching the team over 3 years ago. At least...

    It's remarkable, that's the only thing you have to say about Portugal. I'll take it as you still being sour from being beaten by us. And btw i didn't see many signs of fair-play by Holland. It wasnt our player, that tried to take out a player of the other team, by injuring him. You should...

    Game day for Portugal and the country is positively going to stop. I'm a lot more confident about this match than i was for the match against England. Probably for the first time, in this WC, we are going to field a squad close to full strenght. And adding to that, i believe the players will...

    The only penalty kicks that i remember Ricardo stop, were in both ocasions against England (2004 and today). In 2004 he almost became a national hero for taking out his gloves and defending the last England PK barehanded. And we went through to the semis of the european championship played here...

    In an hard fought match like this, the luckiest team would win. I'm just happy that we were the luckiest ones. Scolari is very far from being a great coach but he sure is the luckiest one. By far. Neither side really played well and that resulted in a pretty bad match, which has been a feature...

    Kajun, when i said "going defensive" i was refering to the sort of teams i was used to see, in the past, from Holland. I was (and still am) an admirer of the schemes with 3 defenders from old Ajax and past Holland teams. For me its strange to watch a dutch team with such a conservative midfield...

    I didn't see much diving or feigning injuries by the Portuguese, in this game at least. Trust me, that wasn't the case today. The problem was that there were so many cards for tick tack fouls and the worst tackles were left unpunished. Your right about Deco's second yellow but that was no reason...

    This could have been a great game but instead turned into a card festival. I'm happy that my country won but i would've prefered to win in a better played game. And the referee was just a mess, what a disgrace. How can he send 4 players off and show over 15 cards when there were barely 20...
