world cup 2014

I can't believe the US of A had the Portugal game wrapped up and blew it with 20 seconds left of extra time. Amazing
Especially considering the first "gimme"goal we handed to them 5 minutes in to it

That's what happens when you fake an injury and blow 5 minutes of gametime.
The game shoulda been over 4 and a half minutes before that goal.

Glad i'm not a fan...... sucks to lose like that.

They didn't lose. It was a draw huge difference.

Great match. It definitely felt like a loss. I don't like stoppage time. If we beat or get a draw against The Jerries on Thursday we advance. That's a tall order. Let's go USA!

It is a really hard call, Messi is arguable the best player in the game today but, if on a scale of 1-10 he'd be a 10 and the rest of the team (minus the keeper who's a 8), is a 5/6 at best. While Germany is a team full of 8s. If Germany is aggressive and scores early while clogging Messi they can win it but, if Argentina keeps up with the "No one scores until Messi does at the last second." Germany will lose. A really hard call.
