When Brazil can do this with USA, the Yankees stand no chance.

I like Germany but they somehow manage to succumb at the very end. They lost the semifinal in the 119th minute at the last World Cup. They lost the final of EURO 2008. Werder lost the UEFA Cup final etc.

South Africa held there very, very well. I doubt this third place match meant much for Spain (as the whole tournament, for that matter), but South Africa played heroic.

Perhaps they're don't deserve to be labeled a terrible team, like I did.

I know them... they were unlucky in the first games... they lose the final just because they decide to stay back and defend all the time... you can't do this vs brazil...

The U.S. played well in the first half,but then they stepped back and let Brazil to attack.I kind of feel sorry for them,they had a two goal lead but they still lost. Anyway,it was a great final.Beautiful goals.Congrats to Brazil,but this was just the Confederations'Cup.Let's see what they'll do at the WORLD Cup next year.

That was so Brazil... thinking "ohhh no worries we'll win this with no effort" and then they get 2 goals oO. But only to prevail and start the magic.

I'm sure a World Cup game between Brazil and USA would be much more one-sided.


I think it's painful to be an American soccer lover now, I know from personal experience how sad is when your team is in driving seats at half-time and loses in a knockout competition (especially in a final).

For the USA I think it'a great achievement that they reached the final anyway and that they were very close to winning it(but not close enough... )

I think that makes it all more painful.

A defeat in a final is much more sadder for a little team.

South Africa was also better than I expected.They lost 1-0 in the semi-final with Brazil because of a late goal(and I thought Brazil would win 3-0 or more),and they nearly beat Spain in the third-place game.

I predicted a 5-0 victory for Brazil against South Africa, but this was a mad torney. And to think the World Cup Holders Italy were knocked out in the group stages.

Weird tournament, that's for sure.

FC Arges, one of the most successful and loved Romanian teams, was relegated today, accused of corruption!! It's not a big surprise, as the Romanian football was in turmoil for the last few months.

It was like a little Moggiopoli, FC Arges being accused for paying the referees so that they will advantage the Trivale team. It seems that FC Arges won about 5-8 extra points thanks to these actions; the sad thing for them is that they would still be in Liga I without those points.

Their place in Liga I will be taken by the first relegated team last season, Gaz Metan Medias.



FC Arges was one of the most successful Romanian clubs in the 1970s, when it won the national championship twice: in 1972 and 1979, and finished twice as runner-up. The club has yet to win the Romanian Cup competition.

FC Arges is one of the most loved teams in Romania.In present in the North side of the Nicolae Dobrin stadium are 4 groups of fans: Violet Eagles,Violet Republic,Rolast Suprem and Debilii.Fans of FC Arges are in rivalty with the fans of Universitatea Craiova,Dinamo,Steaua,Rapid and others.

Achievements

   * Romanian Champions
         o Winners (2): 1971-72, 1978-79
         o Runners-up (2): 1967-68, 1977-78
   * Romanian Cup
         o Runners-up (1): 1964-65
   * Romanian Second Division
         o Winners (4): 1960-61, 1962-63, 1993-94, 2007-08

   * Cyrus International Tournament
         o Runners-up: 1971
   * Balkans Cup
         o Runners-up (3): 198384, 198485, 198788

I call myself quite knowledgeable when it comes to football/soccer in europe. I know a bunch full of teams from nearly every country here (including iceland,malta or Liechtenstein ). But I have never heard of FC Arges

They had some very bad years lately, and I don't remember when they last played in Europe, but they have some tradition.

You were very young when they were known. I'm sure you heard of Dobrin, however. Dobrin was their captain and star player. FC Arges's stadium is named after him.

Dobrin is considered one of the best Romanian football players of all time.Real Madrid wanted to sign him,but the communist regime in Romania did not allow players to leave the country and play for a foreign team...
