Portugal v Spain game might just happen! Be a neighbour to neighbour battle :) Be great for both countries because it has been a long time since either one has had much soccer success


Yep. But we have to go past France and Brazil first. :banghead: :banghead: :banghead:

We had the easiest group, but the rest of the way is going to be hell.

Anway, I'd love that to happen. Spain - Portugal in the semis. :D



France doesn't look that great anymore but Brazil is, well Brazil.

If Portugal can get past England and the team is all back, they could beat Brazil right now

England has been nothing but awful so far. They have a decent defense, but on offense are a disgrace.

The only problem for Portugal are going to be the injuries and Deco's suspension. Hope they make it, tho.

England is still a top team and they might just step up.

I want retribution from the game 40 years ago when Portugal was robbed!!!!

Now that's what I call an old grudge to hold. :wink:

I want to rob France, so they feel like you do for the next 40 years. :mrgreen:

Spain will go very far this time I think, to the semis against Brazil and even the finals. They have a very good team and are underestimated by many

In the NBA olympics I want retribution from the 30 year ago game when the US was robbed three times in the same game.

Australia goes back home... 1-0 against Italy with a wrong call (the penalty) in the last play of the game by the most inept referee of the whole world cup...

A spaniard referee, btw :banghead: :banghead: :banghead:

I watched the game up until the last ten minutes and didn't see the goal. It was a very good game and Australia is out, end of story

Well, well, well... Spain 1 - France 3. Choke job of the world cup.

I'm gonna drunk myself til tomorrow. Then I'll do like nothing happened. We never played this world cup. In fact, I think I'll act like I don't know what soccer is.

PS: We suck. :banghead: :banghead: :banghead:

A very good team that wasn't able to create a chance in the whole game. We didn't shoot. And I don't mean we didn't shoot enough. We didn't shoot at all.

It's like being the best basketball team that can't score.

Oh, well... At least I still have Portugal to root for. :wink:

Probably not for very long because they will likely be missing 3 players that are a major part of their team unfortunately

We'll see. They play England on Saturday, and the english team hasn't been playing well. In fact, Ecuador could have gone past them with a bit more luck.

Yep, and Fifa rewards the referee picking him for the Brazil - France. Go figure.
