Can’t blame you,nomad, I was about to turn off the TV, also wasn’t really expecting it…

Varela, that scored the last goal, should’ve been playing from the start, also William Carvalho, the one that got in at half time, some of the most fit players there and barely used.
Also, 3 injuries and 1 suspended (Pepe) before game and 2 more injuries in the first half, something was wrong with the preparation or something…

Now the last game, Portugal needs to score goals and Ghana needs to win so it should be an open game. And lets see if Germany and pal Klinsmann won’t draw…

If USA draws with Germany or even if Germany wins, Ghana/Portugal need goal lead ,not just victory else USA will still make it 2nd.

Would be epic loss if goal difference will bite in the ass.

Competition is even more tougher now and results still cannot guarantee 2nd
position.

We deserved a win against Portugal. We played much better and created many more chances. Last minute goal was a heartbreaker.

How come it wasn’t deserving, both teams were equal, Portugal would have been 3
if it had not been for that goal post. So blame that.
Deserve talk is only logical if penalty is robbed or referee messes up.


Well i still think there are high chances of USA making it.

Germany and the USA just need a draw and the Portugal/Ghana result wont matter.

A draw puts both Germany and USA on 5 points. Portugal/Ghana can’t get more than 4 points with a win.

Also Portugal would have to win their game by 3 or 4 goals and hope that Germany wins by a couple to over come the 5 goals goal difference.

Never going to happen. Portugal are out of this tournament, they just dont know it. I predict that Germany and the USA will play out the worlds most boring draw on Thursday and rest players for the next round.

     

An adventure game is nothing more than a good story set with engaging puzzles that fit seamlessly in with the story and the characters, and looks and sounds beautiful.

Portaugal is out, everybody knows it here Neutral but the draw was probably the most fair result against the USA. The americans had more close shots from outside and that ridiculous save from the portuguese defender in top of the line, but Tim Howard was the Man of the Match, that says a bit about some of Portugal chances.

So today we have:

Brazil - Cameroon - Brazil will probably destroy Cameroon, african team is lacking motivation and Brazil wants to assure first place.
Mexico - Croatia - Both teams are doing great, should be a very balanced game to see who gets the second place

Chile-Netherlands - Both probably want to avoid Brazil so it should be interesting match
Spain-Australia - Will probably be a boring match but I’m hoping for Australia to get some points to reward the interesting first 2 games they had, but it’s going to be hard without their star player.

I don’t think they’ll make it overly boring. They’ll play “normally” when the score is level or the USA is in front. When Germany is in front (with never more than one goal), they’ll be incredibly lax, to allow the US to draw level.
If it looks like Portugal might win with just one goal in it, Germany might even “win” (goal difference will ensure Portugal is third anyway). But if it looks like Ghana could win, or Portugal could rack up a massive tally? You can be sure it’ll be a draw, even if the score only gets equalized late in the match…
Can’t make it TOO obvious the draw’s fixed, right? Grin

Chile-Netherlands - Both probably want to avoid Brazil so it should be interesting match

Thanks to the “Brazil must win the World Cup” campaign, sponsored by FIFA Corruption, this match doesn’t decide who gets to avoid Brazil. Group B plays first, THEN group A. Brazil gets to pick who it wants to play… Shifty Eyed
But it won’t matter. Chile has been BY FAR the best team at this tournament while Holland has only been good on average 15 minutes per match, while sucking for the rest of the match (kinda like Belgium, although we only scrape together 5-10 good minutes per match). And Van Persie is suspended. Chile will win this easily.
And if Brazil is smart, they’ll want to play Holland, not Chile.
Although it doesn’t matter as I’m sure the refs will help them anyway. Shifty Eyed

In fact, I predict a semi-final between Brazil and Germany where Neymar will blatantly PUSH a German defender in the box (after about 5 minutes of play), and be awarded a penalty while the fouled German will get a red card. Just so that Brazil might win.
I predict the same in “our” end of the knock-out stage in the quarterfinals vs. Argentina as well. So it’ll be an all-South American final (Brazil vs. either Argentina or Chile), which Brazil will win.
I’m willing to put money on this. In fact, I already have. Naughty

FIFA, prove me wrong!

10 goals for the Netherlands, 3 against (2 of them penalties that should not be), places us at the top of our group. Not an easy group either. Not bad for a team that only plays good for 15 minutes in a match, Tim Wink

Netherlands counter-attacks are great. Robben maybe best player in the tournament so far.

Cameroon scored a goal! They are playing much better today.
