3-0 now for Brazil, Pato scored 2
3-2! It was hell towards the end of the match. We were almost eliminated, but well, now we're going to decide our future in the competition against USA. The team is very good but we have some lapses here and there and those lapses are costing us dearly.
And man, Pato is a freaking beast. I hope he lives up to everyone's expectations and turns out to be one of the world's best, because he's got the potential. He can dribble, he can pass, he can head it, he can shoot it like few, man, he's almost a complete footballer and he's just 18.
I stopped watching after Leandro Lima was subbed.
Pato sometimes looks like he's not even trying, but he manages to be in the right spot at the right time. very impressive striker
btw David Luiz and Luizão were so solid tonight from what I saw man....unless they ****ed up in the Korean goals, they were among the best in the Brazilian side.
Benfica really has a talent in David Luiz...
Argentina crushed Panama 6-0. I wonder who are favourites at the moment it seems pretty hard to call, maybe Argentina and Mexico.
Argentina won 6-0 over Panama. Honestly not much to say at first Panama was trying to defend but lacked ideas on attack pretty much they abused longballs which always ended on the hands of our keeper, after a while Argentina got a good chance and scored, then 3 more goals came after, after the 22nd minute the match was pretty much finished with the 4-0. Hopefully they saved some for North Korea and the other rounds.
wow, another rape.
Argentina just seems to be one step ahead of the other teams...sadly I didn't get to watch them yet
Adu's first goal
That's his 2nd goal.
Good to see Maxi doing so well for Argentina
I was waiting for this match a whole day long and that's what I got.
Let's hope we'll bounce back against the Koreans.
Aguero/Morales are legit, man. These two kids have impressed me a ton, man. But Argentina as a whole so far has been phenomenal. They're by far the smartest, most technically gifted team in this tournament from what I've seen.
breath-taking soccer, man.
The USA/Brazil/Poland/South Korea group is awesome at the moment
Korea Goal 1
I mean every country here has a chance to go through...and USA vs. Brazil will be fantastic to watch, I got to watch it, really.
So far, I think Mexico and USA are proving they have fantastic squads and can really do something in this World Cup. Brazil looks weak, except that Pato guy, he's god, and only 18 years old, w00t. Argentina looks great as always...
As for my country, Portugal, I think we have a good team, but I dunno, I don't feel so much confident. Still, you guys better watch out for Gama, Coentrão and Zequinha, the ultimate attack
That Pele kid impressed me a ton. He's got the physique to play the DM, but also the vision and creativity to be an out an out AM imo.
So, who's the consensus ****tiest outfit repping thus far? The Scots? Kiwis? Even Canada? I can't decide, man.
Also, the African countries reppin are really living up to that dogged horrible stereotype of theirs of having a clownish goalie/defence and having absolutely no technical skill and positional awareness.
He impressed me as well, but that was in a match against a team with unexistent midfield, New Zealand. I really am curious to see how will him perform tomorrow against Mexico...
Friggin Czechs, did their whole country switch over to hockey now or something. It's nice watching them attack but they get all messy in the back. The European teams are honestly an embarrasment in this tournament.
Yeah looking forward to this one, in paper looks like a very entertaining match
I would put Portugal as fav., lets remember this is not u-17 and most of our players havent grow much since then, and dont have regular football at high level in Mexico or abroad, not even Vela or Giovanni.
The most experienced player is Araujo who used to be a regular at Chivas in Apertura but he lost his spot on clausura (Second semester)
anyone know what channel this would be on for the united states? any of the games since im from the boston area of the us and id love to see the games. I also have gol tv and fox soccer channel incase its on one of those?
It seems ESPN is broadcasting the USA games, and Galavision is televising the Mexico games. Other than that, I haven't found any other games besides I think the Argentina vs. Czech Rep, and Brazil vs. Poland. Unless they're on digital cable, which I don't have anymore.
