My mistake...I meant the quarters for a possible Spain/Brazil matchup.

As it stands now, Spain winning their group could lead to a matchup against the Republic of Korea, who eliminated Spain in 2002.

Good of Sweden to draw with England at the death today. So in the Group of 16, England will clash with Ecuador and Germany takes on Sweden.

Well, even if Sweden had not equalised, they'd have still faced Germany anyway, because Trinidad lost their last game.

The only difference it made was that it kept the streak going that England have still not beaten Sweden in 38 years (12 matches).

I really like the second round matchups that have emerged from today's games.

We're going to see Argentina take on Mexico and the Netherlands up against Portugal. Should be really entertaining games on the weekend.

GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOL~!

1-1. Luckily they got it before the break, because after the Italy match I was worried about them getting two goals in 45 minutes.

EDIT: Aw, shit.

Someone on Fark posted http://espnevent1.espn.com.edgesuite.net/FIFA_June22_Ghana.asx to get live video coverage. It worked. I don't know if you can change that URL to make later matches work (for example, will http://espnevent1.espn.com.edgesuite.net/FIFA_June22_Croatia.asx or http://espnevent1.espn.com.edgesuite.net/FIFA_June22_Australia.asx work after 3 Eastern), or if it was just for the USA matchup.



In the real world, WWE believes that no matter what our race, religious creed or ethnic background in America, we all share the common bond of being Americans. American-Arabs are a part of the fabric of America, and they should be embraced by all of us.

Yes I'm elated the Socceroos made it to the Knockout Round. After all the U.S. is gone, Ireland didn't qualify, I'm pretty much down the Roos and whomever plays Brazil as who to root for.

Yes. Good stuff and all that, but what a reward.
A smacking from Italy awaits!

But what the hell was Hiddink thinking leaving Schwarzer on the bench?

I think the Socceroos are going to give Italy a whole bunch of problems. Should be a great match.

Italy is beatable, and it would not shock me to see the Roos pull it off.

Here (news.bbc.co.uk) is an article that talks about some of the technology the Aussies are using in their training. I don't know how unique this is to them, but if they've made it this far, it must be helping, right?

Maybe the ref from the Australia-Croatia game should have been using some space age technology to help him count yellow cards. Under normal circumstances, it's not possible to get 3 yellow cards in a game, but a Croatian player did so. It would have been interesting to see FIFA's response had Croatia scored after the second yellow on Simunic. The policy is to replay any game in which there is a technical error. But, given the schedule of the World Cup, that would have been extremely difficult.

Still, it was a fantastic game, albeit marred by some abominable refereeing. Go Socceroos! (even though I think you have only the slimmest of chances against Italy)
