When Ronaldo ends up not even doing his "free kick show" anymore, you know you've done a good job neutralizing him.

Poor Portugal. Even Zangief couldn't save them.

Well, the monkey was right. The camel will be turned into camel burger soon.

Wow, 4-0, just like old times.

Since I watched at the fan area I didn't get the detailed look you get at home but it was fun. Portugal seemed to be quite weak, though. The USA might have a chance against them, after all. I don't share the dislike for Ronaldo most people seem to have but I enjoy the sad and pouty faces he makes when a game doesn't go his way a lot. I hope his failed free kick against Lahm will be turned into a meme, it gets even funnier on replays.

Iran vs Nigeria is officially the first crappy game in what's so far been a very entertaining World Cup.
Here's hoping that Ghana and the USA will make for a more entertaining watch. Who will I be rooting for?!

Good lord, what a dull match between Iran and Nigeria. Hopefully US/Ghana will be more fun, regardless of the result. Though I just saw on Yahoo that both Essien and Boateng aren't in the starting lineup. I didn't know either of them were injured.

Yeah, just saw that, too. Odd.

Indeed.

I like the African style borders on Ghana's jerseys. As far as fashion is concerned, it's 1-0 for Ghana.

That goal right in the opening minute was fantastic, but for the most part Ghana dominated possession after that. Hopefully the US can do a better job of keeping the ball next half. They also need to do something about the left side of their defense. Beasley's looking awful so far.

This has been a brutally physical match so far.

I gotta say I feel a bit sorry for Ghana. They didn't pay attention for 30 seconds and then played a decent game wasting all their chances.

Everything is beautiful right now.

Except for those 84 and a half minutes where Ghana straight-up dominated and the US couldn't pass or maintain possession worth a damn. But everything else is beautiful.

Re: 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil

Yeah, Ghana was the better team but they failed to use their chances and that usually comes back to bite you in your ass. In hindsight, it looks as if leaving Boateng and Essien out was a bad idea. In any case, Boateng should have come in earlier.
The US lost a lot of players to injury, though. Klinsmann will probably not have all the options in the next games because of that. It will be interesting to see whether the US can beat Portugal.

I wonder what Biden is saying to the players in the locker room.

Honestly I'm just hoping for a draw against Portugal. Anything more than that would be a very pleasant surprise.

I shouldn't laugh about that, but really. Surely only your lot could come up with that sort of scenario.

Sums up His Egoness's attitude as well.

Just saw the extended highlights of that game and the send-off was pathetic all round. Müller's hamtastic display was bad enough but Pepe's stupidity - extraordinary even by his standards - almost defied belief. Germany's performance didn't quite match the destruction they handed out to us four years ago but it was still pretty impressive.

The less said about the Nigeria-Iran game the better but the Ghana-US encounter was another eye-opener. Ghana recovered well after that awful start but no one could seriously begrudge the US that result. Hopefully they can give it to Portugal as well and the egomaniac will depart the event.
