Erm, did you read my post?

What I said was that the US has played their easiest game already (against Ghana, i.e. the country that is notably not Portugal or Germany), whereas we've played what is probably our hardest game.

Sorry, I have legitimate blindness in my right eye, so that's probably why I mixed up group with game, along with multitasking on my lemon post.

Wow, so who would have predicted that Spain would be the (joint) first team to go out?

Well, that's England pretty much done for. We can still go through in theory, but we're relying on Italy winning both of their last two games (the last of which they'll only need a draw for) as well as us beating Costa Rica.

Honestly, I think we were a bit unlucky, although our defence was pretty poor. The Uruguayan captain should have been sent off for a second yellow about 30 minutes into the game, and I think we played well enough to get at least a draw.

Ghana tied with Germany. Now that makes USA even more impressive.

I now want the USA to pound the Germans into dust come next game; if only because that means Ghana has more chances of getting through. >:3

So Mike, what was it you were saying again about the US facing the weakest of the group first off? :3

I think it's still true, honestly. Even with that draw, I'd still back Ghana and the USA to be the two teams that go out.

I guess we'll see tomorrow night, though. If the US can get a point against Portugal, then you're in a very strong position.

Except Portuguese are in most uncomfortable situation now. Got pwned hard by Germans.

Well, whilst it can't be good for morale to lose that heavily, it's still in their own hands. If Portugal win their remaining two games, they'll qualify. The only way the hammering by the Germans matters is if they draw with the USA.

Hey Mike: looks like the US team is going to knockouts.

Where's England going again? :3

Arch, possibly you should have waited for the final whistle before you posted that :P

Yeah, sure, you'll probably still go through anyway, but it's not safe, and you've still got to play the Germans.

God that should have been a US win. Still did better than England would have.
