    Terrible refereeing and lots of diving. But WOW what a goal by van Persie and Netherlands.

    Who are you rooting for in this, the largest sporting event in the world?

    Coming Soon...

    Well I have to be rooting for the Americans of course. I also have a soft spot for the British (because of Wayne Rooney).

    But wow, who saw this coming from the Dutch (and from Spain as well). 5-1 in favor of the Oranje, RvP and Arjen Robben with a pair of goals each.

    Spain got REKT.
    Well, it appears that this Spanish tiki-taka came to its end after 6 years.

    Don't follow that closely, but, to no one's surprise, France has my support.

    USA needs to beat Ghana and steal points from Portugal and Germany and hope for the best. What a brutal group draw they got.

    Coming Soon...

    I don't think I've ever been more wrong with my prediction (Spain 2-0). Oh my word this game is already a classic. I can honestly say no Dutch person expected this. Nearly everyone had extremely low expectations, especially against Spain. I can only hope this is not just for this match, but I really don't think so after watching this.

    Shocking how fast Spain keeper Iker Casillas has declined. That bad first touch on the last goal was downright embarrassing.

    Very proud of Australia. Fought and held their own against a quality side that can beat the Dutch and Spain. Obviously have to confident with the next game being the Dutch. Great signs from Leckie, Wilkinson, Halloran and Franjic.

    Australia played very well after looking completely outmatched the first twenty minutes. I thought they would get the equalizer against Chile. Cahill is a beast in the air.

    The fact Chile is by far the shortest team on average, didn't help much. Every-single-ball on the air is a nightmare and our best defender is actually a 5'7" tall midfielder. We had two tall centre backs, but both of them were discarded before one of them is a young wimp who became nervous at the first days of training, and the other hasn't played a single match in six months and is out of shape.



    So, here we are like this...



    P.S. NO, Pitbull is not our coach. xD

    I'm very excited for Italy/England tomorrow. Best part: it's the first round so England can't be eliminated on penalties yet.

    Coming Soon...

    Two teams who saw better times in the past. But a classic is a classic and that never dies.

    Any predictions on who you think will win the whole ball of wax?

    I am going with Argentina over Brazil in a legendary final. Messi will shake the critics who say he folds under the WC pressure with an inspired tournament.

    Coming Soon...
