    more and more its looking like Netherlands will win the world cup.
    on the other hand USA is going to pass because Belgium had an easy group to make it in the round of 16
    El Tri has nothing to he ashamed of with today's performance. They played well enough to win. The Dutch though have a lot of work to do. Robben was their best player. Van Persie was a no show. Sneider was a no show until the goal. Depuy was contained. The good thing is that they are into the Quarterfinals.

    As for the US, Belgium is no cake walk even though they played just well enough to win an weak group. The US have to grind out a win today. They need two goals and not to concede the early goal. Score first and put the pressure on the Belgians.

    still wanted to see an upset to make everything much more interesting
    with Belgium I think they made it though because they group wasn't as difficult as the other ones. sure they have to work now but I want to see that the Belgium's are a good team to bet USA

    Good win by Costa Rica, especially playing with 10 men. So I'm 4 for 4 in the office pool.

    Not sure what World Cup you were watching but of the final 16, Greece, Algeria (outside of the S. Korean match) and Belgium were playing the the most uninspiring football. The Greeks were doing just enough to win. At least with Costa Rica they were scoring early and trying to counter.

    The Greeks had no excuse for letting it get to PKs with a man advantage. Costa Rica was better.

    You really misunderstood me.I said "exciting football" not "better football".In the last 45 minutes(including extra time),Greece were definitely creating most of the moves.And as far as I remember,I distinctly heard the commentator saying at 100th(or some time around) that Costa Rica had had 2 shots on target,whereas Greece had 10 shots on target.Granted,I didn't watch the full match but the time I saw the match(60th min to 120th min),Greece were definitely playing more exciting and attacking football,though the finishing quality was really poor.
    Notice also that I said "I wanted Greece to win"(which is based on my personal opinion),I didn't say "Greece deserved to win."
    Peace.

    I didn't misunderstood you at all - maybe you weren't reading my comments correctly. I watched the full game, for the record. Truth be told, Greece didn't play that exciting in the second half. They spent 60 minutes - which is the last 30 minutes in regular time and 30 minutes in extra time with a man advantage and scored 1 goal due to a defensive mix up on the 90th min. Shots on goal didn't matter as most of their stuff was high and wide. Navas had to make 5 saves that second half - two of which kept Costa Rica in the game.

    In fact, Greece didn't play that exciting all World Cup. They were opportunistic. That's all. They didn't press home their man advantage and the guy who missed his PK did what all those who miss PKs do: not strike the ball confidently. Everyone who has ever done that stutter step moved has missed in all the PKs I've ever seen.

    And for the record, no one challenged your personal opinion of "wanting to Greece to win," so I don't see why it was necessary to point that out. Overall it was an entertaining game, Costa Rica moved on because they were the better team who played well.

    You still didn't understand what I meant and I really don't want to drag this topic more so just let it go.

    France!!! I doubt that Algeria will win against Germany, so we're going to have a good match in 1/8 of tournament! France vs. Germany.

    Yeah they gave the Germans a really hard time. The Germans look incredibly vulnerable to the counter-attack and balls over the top of the defence. Looks like it could be their downfall. Neuer bailed them out with some gambles off the line. The Algerians worked really hard and had some chances to win the game themselves.

    Drmic had a great opportunity to get the Swiss a goal but he comes up with a garbage attempt of a chip. Not enough facepalms for him The Argentinians looked pretty lacklustre with only Messi driving the team.

    Bring one the Belgium-USA game. Hopefully it is more entertaining than the earlier game today.

    Omg my heart almost explodes!! Good for that goal of DiMaria !!!! I think he played very very bad, he couldnt make most of the passes, lost a lot of balls, but he made the goal haha.
    Germany - Algeria was very exciting!! Never though that Germany would call the hour vs Algeria.
    Now waiting for Belgium-USA !!
