The goalie was bad ass from Mexico.
He actually tipped a tipped penalty kick.
Incredible reflexes.
Great game.

Nice to see at least one African team take a victory. Bravo, Senegal!

Talking to my dad earlier, he said he went out for a cigarette at 91 mins when it was 1-1 between England and Tunisia. Laughed on the way out the door. When he walked back in and saw the updated score he shouted at the TV.

Best two goals I've seen so far (and I haven't seen them all, or most maybe):
- 2nd Spanish goal against Portugal (what a cannon shot)
- 2nd Belgium goal against Panama (incredible pass from the outside of the foot bending back to hit a charging teammate...just amazing control from De Bruyne, who was on the run himself...one of the best I can recall)

Belgium looked largely uninterested, until they looked devastatingly skilled and creative on all three goals.

Who saw Russia coming out of the gate with an 8-1 differential after two games? Yeah, no one.

Same with us with Argentina. We ALWAYS root against Argentina.

Speaking of Mexicans.
Theres a guy named Javier whose wife wouldnt let him go with his buddies to the games.
So his Bros made a cardboard cut out of him and drug him around Russia.
Cracks me up something awful.

THIS.
I had this discussion earlier today while watching RUSSIA vs EGYPT in a hotel lobby with a couple Latino dudes. Are you fn kidding me? Russia didn't even qualify. They are in only because of being the host country. 8 goals in 2 matches. crazy

Maybe if they play, Suarez can take a bite out of skinless Ronaldo. Not sure which one I dislike more, can they both lose?

Flopping is still a thing in futbol, though it's less of the "flailing arms jump in the air" (since slo-mo can clearly show the acting job) and more of the "lie on the ground like a dead fish" when anyone so much as touches you. Where are the guys with the magical cold spray when you need them. As much as I love the sport, faking injuries is pathetic.

Blah games the last two games compared to the previous ones.

This World Cup has been awesome so far. Have watched plenty of action but haven't been able to see every match. Love the 90 second '90 in 90' highlights vids they are doing. Too much awesome action to talk about. Looking forward to all of Saturday's matches wow.

Too much fouling IMO in all the matches I've seen. I guess it's like playoff basketball, which can have the same problem. Game slows down and teams grind.

Well after the watching Denmark v Australia in what turned out to be pretty free flowing game with a disappointing 1-1 draw, for us at least, VAR levelled the field for us. Where VAR went against us in our game against France we got a goal this time from a questionable VAR decision.

VAR has upped the number of penalties and yellow cards handed out but given the use of video review in cricket, tennis and other codes of football like Rugby League I think it is here to stay.

After three leg surgeries on my daughter soccer just isn't as fun as it used to be. But she sure loved playing the game.

The fans don't fight like they used to do they? The guys from Birmingham used to like to really throw down.

The last 10 min of the Brazil v Costa Rica game.

I've never seen so many big strong blokes go down like shot ducks. The Brazilians to try and manufacture a penalty (nearly worked), the Costa Ricans to try to waste time (also nearly worked).

Neymar spent so much time rolling around on the ground I was starting to suspect he had an inner ear problem!

Difficult to watch! Detracted from the otherwise sublime skills of the Brazilians. 2-0 probably a fair result in the end.

I read an article years about about pheromones, and they mentioned some of the standing-room soccer stadiums in England. Don't shoot me, just relating what I recall, but they said there was no way to extricate yourself to go to a restroom, so you just....did your thing right there. The male pheromones in urine then worked their magic and caused more aggression than there might have otherwise been smile

Then again, from what I've read about hooligans in various places, some people just want to watch the world burn...:D

I was honestly hoping they would both lose, closest thing I guess would have been a draw...

But yes Brazil was by far the better team, diving aside.

They always do this! How..?

Just before Kroos took that free kick my brother in law said: there are few things certain in life, but this kick will go in 100%! Of course he was right..

Tell you one thing: it's no fluke. These guys drill for days. Same thing with penalties. England always ask how they do it: well, the boring stuff in training will clinch it when s--- gets real. Good lesson here.

thank you for that, Menno. I have been at Gearfest the last 2 days and haven't seen 1 second of sports. Didn't even know what happened until I logged on to this forum. Germany lives to see another day. cheers

That was a beautifully taken set piece by Germany. Very exciting finish - I really felt for both sets of fans in the tense final minutes.

Well, it was deserved for out German friends. They played better most of the match, but missed a lot of opportunities.

Im just afraid they now will win the championship again....;)
