Yes, he is an obnoxious little poser.

So for Iceland to advance today they need to win and have Argentina win also, but by only 1 goal I think. Wonder how hard Croatia will play? Belgium is looking like the team to beat. The England-Belgium match will be interesting because they both will be playing to lose and they are tied right now. Could come down to fair play rules.

If there was a United Kingdom team could you imagine how many titles they would have won. Ireland, Wales, Northern Ireland, and Scotland all have some real good players and came close to qualifying. Too bad all the limey bastards can't get along and I'm 50% Scottish.

The UK is still very factional, unfortunately - even within the nations. The Protestant vs Catholic clubs in Scotland border on tribal warfare!

Indeed you can see it bleed out most of the time during matches anywhere in the United Kingdom. It seems the hooligans always have enough pocket money to travel somewhere to cause strife. I'd pay real money to see a few of them show up in Russia, can you say hello gulag? =p

Still, it would have been nice to see another UK team representing. Perhaps next time another team or two will advance.

Feel free to use crystal ball before it finishes.

Every time I see Croatia take the field, I get more and more impressed. They've a fine team right there.

Consolations to Iceland though, maybe next time!!! And Argentina made it through by the skin of their bloody teeth.

And? Top two teams (points wise) from groups move forward. Iceland lost tonight and it's the end for them in this "championship" (world cup). Although I'm with the opposite side obviously, Iceland's display tonight is worth of respect. They've practically appeared only a few years back and every time they're playing better than before.

Before you ask, from this group Croatia and Argentina will continue, next matches are Croatia vs Denmark and Argentina vs France (top two from group C vs top two from group D) - note that losing one of next matches means dropping out for good. Yea, rules of this cup.

Hey, I never cared what the title of the thread was, I'm just happy to see others discussing the best sport on this planet. Yup, love my hockey and rugby, but football is just the best for so many reasons.

Well, he's down to using two fingers, rather than both hands, so that's progress.

Well, Australia is out

Korea fought well but score wise it's depressing (2 losses) crossing my fingers for Korea vs Germany but realistically, not much hope for korea to make it to top16.

Iceland had so many chances in the first half against Croatia and Nigeria but when you don't convert those chances bad things happen. Iceland played hard and for a first World Cup they have nothing to be ashamed of.

Now I just want to see exciting games and will root for England or Belgium. Would love to see a first time winner.

What's this in F group today? Only one match left and anyone can pass, even Mexico with two previous wins isn't safe. Crazy.
Sure, Korea winning is near impossible, but in this sport nothing is 100% certain.
