    Modric ices Argentina. He’s so damn good. Might be the best midfielder in the world, for me.

    Messi is definitely retiring from the NT, right? I’d be shocked if we ever see him in an Argentina shirt again, after this tournament.

    There’s your (deserved) punishment for Neymar. He could have scored if he didn’t flop.

    Soccer – So fun to play but rough to watch with dives and honestly more annoying time wasting

    Hockey – So fun to play and so fun to watch

    Neymar is going to continue to get fouled all tournament but because he flops like Robbie Earl and cries like a toddler he will rarely get the benefit of the doubt. He’s such a fantastic player that it just takes away from how skilled he is.

    Can they go back and look at Marcelo’s slap? I’m surprised none of the referees cause that because that sure looked like a straight Red to me.

    When they brought on Douglas Costa the game changed completely. At one point they had Coutinho, Firmino, Neymar, Gabriel Jesus, Douglas Costa, and Casemiro on the field…

    I thought the VAR could look at that but I was thinking post match action being taken.

    Not necessarily where the Icelandic player missed but more how he missed. Basically a chip shot which was missed pretty badly – it looked to be 2 feet above the bar.

    It was just such a purple Skol like miss. :lol:

    Will be interesting to see how a broken Argentina team performs against them, with everything on the line. Door wide open for Nigeria now!

    He reminds me of a wrestler, low center of gravity but deceptively quick and fast and seems to play with his chin stuck out like he’s triple-dog-daring you to hit him. :shock: :lol:

    That was really a fun game to watch. Really intense.

    Got to feel bad for Sweden to lose in the closing moments. Plus to have an obvious pentaly not called againt Germany in the first half. And I’m not a big soccer fan and I knew it was a pentaly.

      Panama and Costa Rica already eliminated after two games. Makes you wonder how well the US would of done if they made the World Cup. Or was it a good thing not making the World Cup to ruffle some feathers in US Soccer for future years.

      Agree, they look like rental bowling shoes. Though I would have to believe they are similar to broom ball shoes. Someone would kill them self or severely hurt themselves if they were bowling shoe soles.

      I know zip about curling, but don’t they wear one shoe that slides and one that grips? Maybe in this “sport” they (should) wear two that grips?

      I wore my track spikes playing indoor broomball for one season. Since it was just a church rec league no one complained even as I routinely trucked by everyone else on the ice. They made a very cool sound with every step. :)

      Uruguay beats Russia easily to win Group A.

      Saudi Arabia just daggered Egypt with a 95th minute goal. Really poor showing from Egypt in this tournament.

        Top half of the 16 looking like

        Uruguay

        Spain

        France

        Argentina

        Brazil

        Germany

        Belgium/England

        Colombia

        Dear God…

        If that happens you’re welcome for the cake walk Portugal and other of England/Belgium

        Some of these referees just shouldn’t be doing any more games. This guy in the Iran-Portugal has totally lost control of this game

        Arguably, Ricardo Quaresma has just as much natural talent as Cristiano Ronaldo

        WOW… After watching the replay. Iran was that close to upsetting Portugal and moving to the knockout rounds.

        You may argue specific skills, like the outside of the boot kick he had today. That was a very talented goal. There is no arguing the goal scoring and longevity that Ronaldo has had. He’s closing in on 500 goals for club and country. Quaresma is at 80 some.

        France and Denmark help each other through with (the first?) goalless draw, not that it was needed in the end.

          That guy was bad lol, the last PK for Iran was a pretty bad call but then he might’ve missed one or two that actually should’ve been PK’s for them. Then there was what should’ve been a red on Ronaldo (you’re not gonna convince me he unintentionally struck the other player). I’m probably forgetting a few things too.
