HAHAHA.

Are you going to fly a big Swedish flag from your house as well? I guess you would have a similar reaction from your neighbours if I had a Spanish flag draped over my balcony.

I dare you!

:D

Talking about the world cup, I think it is about time, that Spear makes public his match predictions. Not only insightful and amusing, he has proven to be very jinxed :D

I was going to hang little flags on my balcony, but I'd probably get my ass kicked - especially if the Swedes win :D

The town next to ours still has a monument where two Swedish soldiers were skinned alive during the thirty years war. And there is modern scupture that commemorates the women who poured boiling oil etc. on the Swedish invaders. I thought it was a simple fountain depicting three village women pouring buckets of water over a wall. Germans are so funny.

GO SWEDEN!!

I have never been a fan of the German national team, but Klinsmann's team plays attractive offensive and technical football. For the first time in find myself cheering for my neighbours to the south.

JETZT GEHT'S LOOS!!!

Holy crap, what was up with that PK? He looked like he was trying to put a hole in the back of the net.

Henrik Larsson was looking to put an exclamation point on the end of his international career - and he made a complete mess of it.

I should thank him, though, because he allowed me to collect my full bet instead of a half.

Sadly, there are a lot of frustrated bigshots in the WC...

* Lampard (who shoots every time he touches the ball)
* Beckham (who barely touches the ball)
* Ballack (who wants to justify his value after leaving Bayern Munich for Chelsea)
* Shevchenko (who resorts to tripping over himself to earn penalties so he can justify his move to Chelsea as well)
* Ronaldo (who couldn't hit the side of a barn until he was standing next to the barn)
* Henry (who had to be gifted a goal to break his streak as well as the whole team's goalless streak)
* van Nistelrooy (looks like a chicken running around with its head cut off)

If they would all calm down and play their usual game they would be way more effective - but the WC seems to bring out the worst in them.

Today, England are giving Ecuador a one-ball handicap, while Portugal and Holland are even but Holland is slightly favored in the straight odds.

Ecuador has proven to be a big surprise in the WC, and they could threaten but it's not likely that they will beat England, or even draw, if Rooney finds form and Gerrard gets an early start.

England 2, Ecuador 0.

Portugal and Holland is going to be another classic battle. Just about all the big shots are available for tonight's game - so in a close battle it's going to depend on Arjen Robben's form for Holland, and Deco plus Cristiano Ronaldo's form for Portugal.

A very difficult call indeed, but I'm going to lean towards Holland because Robben has been most influential in Holland's early stage games.

Holland 2, Portugal 1

Now let's see who's jinxed :)

Gotta say though that FIFA's clampdown on diving and shirt-pulling has definately helped temper the more cynical side of the game. Nice to see they got something right at last!

Bit harsh on "el gordo" after he scored a very nice brace :p

Agree with most of the rest, except that that is Lampard's usual game :) It's just that normally he scores one or two of them!

The heat's going to be the big threat to England today, so a few thunderstorms wouldn't go amiss...

Even though I love England with all my heart, they have been so boring to watch so far. The best game for me so far was Italy v USA. What a cracker!! The USA nearly had them as well. Unlucky guys. Germany were very nervous in the opening game, but since then they have come on leaps and bounds and could go all the way. Argentina are not far behind, with Brazil.

Hopefully we won't be seeing any of this type of nonsense as well!

COME ON ENGLAND!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Heh hee.. Shame more of them can't be on target!!

>* Beckham (who barely touches the ball)

TOTALLY disagree... The guy never ever ever puts a ball wrong. Noone in the world can place a ball like he can, and he does it every single game.

>* Ronaldo (who couldn't hit the side of a barn until he was standing next to
>the barn)

TOTALLY TOTALLY disagree... Ok - he's a little on the 'heavy' side this year, but the build up play and finish on Thursday were world class. Unless you were talking about Cristiano? ;)

>England 2, Ecuador 0.

I've taken a flyer on a 3-2 thriller! Gerrard twice and Rooney.

COME ON ENGLAND!!!

1-1 (Rooney) for me.

2nd half of extra time, with 2 minutes to go Beckham scores from a free kick outside the box. We win 2-1. The whole f^&*$g country is in a frenzy. Everybody gets pissed and nobody turns up for work tomorrow!

Beckham is elected Prime Minister with immediate effect.

The Queen declares a public holiday until the end of the tournament.

Dream, dream, dream!!!!!!!
