Oh dear yet again - a point earned agaist the Algerians, leaving a win necessary against Slovenia next Wednesday. If the US can beat the Algerians that's England and the US through.

In the interests, however, of special friendships across the pond, the US would deserve their place on current performance. For me Landon Donovan has been a star.

Problem now is that the second place in Germany's group play first place in England and the USA's. Let's say the Germans finish second, for me that's a good reason not to finish first and avoid them. They have a habit of coming good.

Will that man Capello please play Joe Cole and tell Steven Gerrard he is a millionaire, so should be able to play on the wing as well as centre of the pitch.

Well done to the Algerians (and Slovenians).

Was it before the second half?  :)
It was when we were in the lead by 1:0. Was a though game, probably the best one till now for me (I'm biased though). In the end we were lucky to get a point. The ref clearly wasn't good enough for the game (the usa goal, the many usa elbows,...).

ahaha that's a good one! OD on SS, linking IS! :P
The SS preview was too big, so I used the IS one.

It's gonna be a thrilling last round. The fact that we won against Algerians and England lost against them gives me hope :D

So it seems Italy wants a place in the plane that is taking France back home... They still have a chance, and they always do poorly on the first stages.  Brazil is now in a very comfortable situation. 

Will Portugal pass the North Korean barrier? Will the Swiss catch Chile too?  Will Spain recover against Honduras?

After the game against Australia I would have been with you, but at the moment this world cup is allover the place - the South American teams are looking strong though.

Portugal could receive the North Koreans as refugees.   ;D

The match on Friday will be a good one, but don't expect anything like today!

In FIFA website, they say "Brazil put Elephants in the shade".  Is "Elephants in the shade" some expression, or is the Ivory Coast team nicknamed "Elephant"?

Yes, the nickname of the Ivory Coast national team is "Les Elephants" . . .

Are there still elephants there after all the ivory sold?

So, it was "Adieux les Bleus", and it was sad to see the Bafana Bafana out of the show.  Now, who's going home next?

Nigeria and most probably Greece __ in about 4 hours from now.

Unfortunately there's a very good chance that England will also be on the 'Plane of Shame' by this time tomorrow. If it happens it'll be the first time in my life that they haven't made it through the Group stage.

And France is out, now I really feel sorry for Ireland. Bafana is out, but at least they don't have to go anywhere, they are at home!

USA - down to the wire vs. Algeria - glad to see that it wasn't another bad call by a ref that made the difference this time.

No plane of shame for England - I'm eager to see tonight's match to see if we end up playing the Germans on Sunday.

Well done USA, and man of the tournament so far, Mr. Donavan. Made me laugh to see Bill Clinton watching, he knows a think or two about scoring!

England against Germany, the French surrendering without a fight and the USA late to the party!

Who said history repeats itself.

Only joking, apologies to all if the joke's in bad taste

I'm glad USA managed to classify, because I think they had the best performance in their group (for what I read).  England did one good match at last, not deserving much in fact.  I'm also glad for Ghana.  

Waiting to see what happens to Italy & the group E tomorrow.  I have a meeting though and will be able to watch just a little at lunchtime.

Well you can't argue about their commitment. Here's England defender John Terry's headlong diving block in slow-mo. Is it a bird? Is it a salmon? No __ it's John Terry!
