world cup- brasil x england- classic of the new milleniumcolker

friday. brazilian local time 3:30. a nation won't sleep.
after 2 yrs. of terrible games. a fired director, chraged with corruption, brazil's national team raised from the dead and conquered our trust.
england has the best, most offensive team in 40 yrs.
beckham and ronaldo. 2 charismatics leaders.
brazilians and english, both passionate about football.
tomorrow.... God.nerves are wrecked.
I will be glued to the television...Djudd

both teams have issues and are seeking redemption in one way or another. This is the true drama of international futbol. Great teams are always seeking a level of respect that is unattainable. One poor World Cup and a great team must get redemption. National pride and passion is always an issue. Now that we are entering a new age in world futbol where African countries and the U.S. are playing bigger roles, the older world powers will have to fight it out for a smaller piece of the world pie. Clashes like the Brasil-v-England will be more and more crucial. I am so excited. This is a great World Cup!!!! Allez, Allez!!!
I will watch in one of our street bars..colker

Madness in London this AM with everybody trying to get to work before 7:30AM for the match.

A bad day as first my host country goes out and then my home country go out.

I'll be rooting for Senegal and South Korea tomorrow but it's a down day here in the UK. Off to the pub tonight for more than a few pints. Its been a good cup for both the UK and US but now it's 'four more years'.

Well, on to the Tour. Going over for the last day in Paris and thinking about going to Luxemborg for the prologue.
a 2am start for me. what a match. then Germany and the States128

I like the US
but
Auf in den Kampf Deutschland!
how about the Italians, what a bunch of soreheads...Djudd

the club team of the South Korean who scored the winning goal fires him, then they cried about officiating in a most unsportsmanlike manner. Between this and the dq's at the Giro they are looking pretty bad.
is it legal to do this??colker

that's something from a mussolini..what a shame!!
they should be banned from the next world cup....Spirito

for acting like children.

whatever the outcome they didn't play well enough... the tactic of disputed calls and refereeing is lame. they scored and sat back and defended for the 2nd half of the game which is fine for european football but in the worldcup you have to attack as a defence.

what they did with the korean player position for his italian football career is a disgrace. thats not the spirit.

to be fair rai-uno (a major italian tv channel) showed images of korean spectators at the game with italian jersey's crying at the italian loss. that is cool.

apart from them what a glorious world cup this has been. determination and passion are victors and the world should be proud.

now what high end steel road bike with lots of chrome comes from korea......

i cant wait for a few hours more till bra vs eng starts. i dont like crowds for crucial games so its just me a mate and 2 cats with the volume on 11

what a game, what a match up. the youth of england and the flair of brasil - does it get better. football is getting ready for a new glory patch. the new era starts soon.

ciao (in korean)
Italial shanigans?No surprise there.Late night w/Eng.vBras128

watched the last half hour.....

Taping the us v. ger game at home but following it on the fifa site and bbc site!

Good luck!

!!!!!!!! ( a korean race bycicle would be a terrible no no)
brasil!!!!!!!!! congratulations.....Spirito

their second half play showed them to be more talented and much better conditioned. 2 more game sto go and we'll all be singing "brassssilllll"........

that ref is a fool.... im sure both sides will make complaint to fifa...there is only one ref who i think is without peer - the bald guy from italy.

im sure colks and all the brasilian people are dancing and they have right to - its great for the whole country.

enjoy

ciao
Brasil looks like world beaters...Djudd

the tactics after the Ronaldinho sending off ...brilliant!!!They showed the uncommon skill Brasil is known for. The U.S actually looked very good...one central defender with offense skill and we win. Tony Sanneh was fantastic, a perfect candidate for libero if Arena decides to change the format.
I like S. KoreaWalter

The fittest team out there. They run as hard in minute 90 as they do in minute 10. Every game I've seen at the end they're running past the opposing defense. If Spain tries to sit on a one run lead they'll be playing overtime.

That and a rabid crowd.....

It may not be midnight for Cinderella yet.

who knows....

i wouldn't bet on it but its not impossible especially if you look at what else has happened. football's a funny game - ask argentina, france and italy...

i like spain but wouldn't mind if korea beat them only to then beat germany at their own game. then i would be singing their praises all night long....

fitness in the hot/himid conditions is a factor on the korean side without doubt. home support ditto. nerves and maturity are hard to coach against though... ask england. their 2nd half was such a shame considering the lead up games and stature they rose to but i suppose as they are young in 4 years time they will have their chance.

still singing... brassilllllll lada-da daa da-da

me ... i just want goals ... allez senegal !!
Not the way I envisioned it andWalter

I hope none of the Koreans play for a Spanish club.

Unlike Italy, Spain has some legitimacy when they complain about the officiating.

ok, this game is a nice small box of surprises. senegal x brasil... that would be beautifull. germany is the ugly nightmare. precise and ugly although their 70's team (of beckenbauer) was a beauty.
