It’s always been the goal difference.

But I agree with wilco that the tied teams’ results should come before the goal difference. It’s more fair that way.
Then again, FIFA isn’t exactly known for being fair. Grin Naughty

Sure, but my guess is that it promotes goal-oriented football. The “only” stupid thing is when total goal difference should decide who proceeds from the group, is when one team has already been knocked out before the last round. Then, hypothetically, the team that plays against the knocked-out (and unmotivated) team in the last round has more chances to score goals and fix their goal difference.

Not in all tournaments. I was mixing up.

Of course not, I was speaking of World Cups.

Abysmal refereeing at the end. When the action is still going, you do NOT blow the final whistle. That one second costs Benzema one of the better goals of the tournament. What if he ends up just one goal short of being the lone tournament top scorer? Or (however unlikely) France winds up second with one goal short in the goal difference?
Kuijpers has no feeling for the flow of the game, it seems…

A question for you guys - can you name few of your favorite 2014 WC links? Where do you hang? I read this news site - http://www.101greatgoals.com/ , and occasionally, I also visit Telegraph and Guardian. For past WCs, I liked to visit this blog - http://www.worldcupblog.org/ which had great articles, live radio podcasts, discussions… but unfortunately it’s defunct. Do you know of something similar?

Rooney’s spectacular performance

Reminds me of the parody of Beckham’s penalty vs Portugal at Euro 2004. Grin




As for the match at hand: just like against France, Honduras make some vicious tackles. Refs should be more strict. Figueroa should thank his lucky stars he hasn’t been booked yet.

I only now saw the situation where Pepe got the red card - what a pathetic dive from Müller! Must be one of the worst in the tournament, overall. That “headbutt” (though it’s not really a headbutt, it’s just him confronting Müller on the dive) was sure dumb and sure his hand was high in the first place so I’m not saying the red card was completely unjustified, but it’s a total injustice that Müller wasn’t booked for that.

The “headbutt” is what got him sent off. Had he just walked away from Müller’s acting, he would never have been booked. It’s his own stupidity that got him a red card.

Sure thing, that’s what I said (although the headbutt isn’t really a headbutt in the usual sense, rather a very aggressive, in-your-face “what do you think you’re doing?” - stupid, but not in any way a physical attack), but one can’t dismiss the ridiculous dive Müller also took that was the cause for that “headbutt” - and yet people who keep complaining about other divers seem to ignore that completely even though it was definitely at least one of the most blatant ones.

You know, it’s old news to most, but I only just saw the situation Wink

Though it’s not surprising because there are countries whose players often can’t fall without being called divers, and other nations whose players can dive around all day and no one ever says a thing.

Anyways, hoping for a good game from Argentina today - and I so wish Ghana would get back in the zone they were in the last World Cup and manage to win Germany Grin Highly unlikely, but stranger things have happened.

The Pre-show hype for Messi is already in overdrive mode, i hope he is good enough to
rain goals on Iran.

So, Argentina saved by a Messi wonder-goal in the last minute against Iran. They have to step up in the next phase if they want to go anywhere. They were very lucky with the group they got.

Luck > Hardwork, that own goal in first match and Penalty + Reza got robbed twice. Seriously this is really bad show.

Iran got robbed.
