World Cup 2014!

Postby FSF Blitz » Tue Jun 17, 2014 9:39 pm

The World Cup is among us and I am surprised no one made a thread about it yet. Each team has played at least one game by now. What are your favourite to take it this year? I wonder if Brazil can live up the pressure and win it at home or fail miserably like the did the last time the World Cup was played in Brazil in 1950? Can Spain can come back from that 5-1 thumping the Netherlands gave them?

Well Spain just got eliminated. So far I've greatly enjoyed this cup. I'm a USA supporter and generally I support the Mexicans or the English after the USA get eliminated. For USA we got revenge on Ghana. With a draw or win over Portugal we'll advance for the second straight cup. Mexico's game against Brazil was fun to watch and I think it shows a weakness in the Brazilian game. I don't think Brazil will get pass the Quarters.

Anyway I was just thinking about this earlier: This is the cup of the New World. There is a good chance that Seven teams from the America's advance into the final sixteen.....European dominance at the cup is coming to an end.

Wow nobody is watching????

Anyway the Dutch just beat Costa Rica to advance to the semi's. Costa Rica gave one of the greatest defensive showings I have ever seen. Now we've got Argentina v Netherlands and Brazil v Germany....

So....

I'm hoping that Argentina knocks off the Dutch and the Brazilians knock out the Germans..... the America's cup should be decided by two teams from the America's!

I've never been much of a Soccer fan. Though I have been occasionally checking out what's going on.

I noticed that.. but since I have lived in Germany and never lived in Argentina I had to root for them.

I never really lived there... though I did spend some time in a hospital in Germany for awhile... While I don't really follow soccer, I was somewhat cheering for Germany.

It does....But then again I think most of the country was rooting for Germany to win the cup.
