I can relate to that. I've had a peripheral interest in it for years because I work and went to school with lots of Europeans, but I didn't watch a whole lot of it. For the last 1.5yrs, however, I've been playing in an adult co-ed soccer league in my town and not surprisingly I have a lot more interest in the professional game now, as well.

Default Kaka scored in the 44th minute

Seems to me if you were only gonna have one name, you could find something better than ka-ka.

Default Germany vs. England

Anyone see Germany play today? I thought i was watching a hockey game for a minute with all their shots on goal! they are looking pretty sweet in my limited American soccer knowledge.

England vs Germany would be awesome to watch...
ps Brasil looked pretty good too thier last game.

I was pretty bummed about Ecuador...that's who I'm rooting for this Cup (MIL is from Ecuador). I didn't see it, but heard they looked pretty ho-hum and not really up for the game while Germany was on fire.

Getting ready to check out for the day and watch the England v. Sweden match. Should be pretty interesting given that I work for a Swedish company with headquarters in London and half of work is probably going to the bar.

I've been watching the WC since it started. My wife and her sister are Italian, sister-in-law's boyfriend is Mexican, I'm a fan of Germany, and everybody loves to watch Brazil play.

I don't care who wins, so I just play the devil's advocate and root for the "other guy".

Well we've (England) avoided Germany (luckily) at the second round stage of the Competition at least - We won our Group but we've not played well in any of the games.
Add in the fact that we might be an experienced (although not on form it has to be said) striker down if Michael Owen doesn't recover from the injury he's picked up in tonight's match against Sweden - things aren't looking exactly rosy.....

Still, Ecuador next. C'MON ENGLAND!

yeah that was a crazy game!
Is that guy really injured? its so hard to tell, it seems to me that everytime a stretcher comes onto the field to take a guy off, he usually jumps up off it and runs back on the feild??
Thats what i hate about Brazil:they did alot of 'flopping' last WC, and all thier finesse play, and beauty and all that crap(whatever)

I hope USA plays brazil and beats them 4-nil, that would be sweet!!!

C'mon guys, it's soccer. It's more exciting watching paint dry. I stopped at a local brewpub for lunch the other day. They had two TVs one with the US Open and the other with the World Cup. I told the bartender that it was a good thing the beer was good or I would have been out the door quick.

I agree. Watching those matches is excruciating. The worst part of it for me is the bogus refs. They wreck it for me with the red card/yellow card BS. It is all a big conspiracy--I swear it. Living proof is the tape of that pathetic USA/Italy game. What a joke.
