Blame my best friend, he was the one who raised my hopes. I knew it'd end up like this.

But come on, Brazil was messing up left and right, one could hope.

I guess every team has its ups and downs. The Germans didnít play like they used to, it began with the first match against Mexico where they didnít seem to master the game as they often do. I think itís also because the best players retired and left the youngsters whose level doesnít equal the formersí.

Hey Neraus cheer up, didnít you notice they Latin America, Russia and some Balkan teams made it, man itís the communists theyíre behind this odd world cup. I hope to see a Belgium vs Croatia finale, should be worth it, one of them deserve the cup. With Senegal losing Africa is out anyway.

@Sal: I wish you had the balls to make out your racist jokes in front of 6 feet long Africans, you would understand what eating a black fat **** is. You really have no idea of how tiring your repetitive indescent remarks are. Mind you that descendants of immigrants play in most if not all western teams today, and that half of the Swiss team is composed of Yugoslavs, you donít feel like joking on them because they are white Europeans? Europe for Europeans eh?

Go spit your fascist venom with your fascio sphere friends and stop quoting me to show the extent of your pathetic xenophobia.

To be fair, I called the Kosovars in the team filthy Albanians when talking with my best friend. I could make a collection of all the insults I spewed at the various teams, and that's the great thing about soccer, it reminds you of how damned much you hate other countries.

The African French team is also a tradition in my family at this point, and we called the Swedes Islamic meatball munchers back in the qualifications, to think that IKEA defeated us was unbelievable, then I realized I watched the match on an IKEA sofa.
I've got so many insults to fling at the Croatians, since Dalmatia is rightful Italian land, but they keep occupying it, so you can imagine how much I'm gonna shout.

We Italians don't even care about winning the competition, we just want to beat Germany, France and England, because that's the only validation we're gonna get in the international sphere.
That's one of the reasons why it was a huge shock when we lost against Germany at the Euro cup (also the little thing that we never lost to Germany at an official competition).

Actually I was replying to "nations", so don't know why you conclude my joke is about french team, which I never look at so no idea who is in. There are millions of Algerians, Marocains and Tunisians in France so is not xenophobic to joke about one Arabic nation still in the race. But expecting a Al Hazin to have any sense of humor was the error, I see.

Both teams played awfully. The worst is that seeing the Germans going down, they wouldn't be able to beat us again.

Mexico is always a slow-paced hard game. Slow-paced is the kind of game I hate to watch.

Sooo we are nearing the 2nd Round games, here are a few thoughts :

- France vs Argentina

Neither team has been very impressive so far considering their amount of star players. I predict a France win. But maybe the VAR will decide otherwise.

- Uruguay vs Portugal

Although I think Uruguay is the better team I am hoping for some more magic by Cristiano.

- Spain vs Russia

 I just hope for an entertaining game since I don't have a personal favorite here. On paper of course it's Spain but don't forget they are playing against the hosts.

- Croatia vs Denmark

Now here is a team that showed good football in the group games, but let's see if they can keep going. I don't expect Denmark to win it but at least hoping they'll go down with a fight.


- Brazil vs Mexico

As observed before in this thread, Brazil are not at their best, but I still see them winning here.

- Belgium vs Japan

I did not expect Japan to progress but I'm afraid that this is where they stop since Belgium looks too strong for them.

- Sweden vs Switzerland

Again I have no favorites, and I would not be surprised at a tense, close game.

- Colombia vs England

England seem to be slight favorites here, but I'm hoping Colombia takes this one.

And Sicily belongs to us, I also claim you Neraus as inseperable part of my historical living patrimony.

For the record, we also had never lost to Germany before 2014 and they suffered to beat us, you can watch that match on replay itís a historical one. We beat them in the sixties, we bet them in 1982 as well, we were about to pass to the next phase but they rigged a match with Austria in order for both of them to pass, called match of shame or something.

It is since then that the two last elimination matches are played simultaneously.

Hey, take me to dinner first.

Funnily parts of Africa did belong to Sicily at one point, but in truth, everything has to return being part of Rome.

I'm also rooting for Argentina right now, I don't want the baguettes winning, as much as this hurts my best friend's wallet.

EDIT::
I'm bitter, but the Argentinians tried their best, so that's at least something to alleviate the pain. But I'm happy that Uruguay passed, after all in Naples the most famous names for children are Edinson, Gonzalo and Lorenzo. And that's coming from someone who's a racist towards Neapolitans.

2 'geniuses' might be not returning for World Cups after today: Messi and C. Ronaldo. I only watched the second game, which was sort of ... too familiar. Uruguay got a well-deserved win, apparently best defense on the WC and very effective counter-attacks. Sad for CR, the guy is a gentleman and very good player. I would sell Neymar's mother to get one like that in the place of Neymar on our team.


Well ... today, every Brazilian that bothers about football was French. So, I will not comment much on that game. Although I learned it was quite a thrilling show.

Tomorrow I'm expecting Spain to follow and Japan.

ALRIGHT! RUSSIA WON! I'm so damn happy, this world cup is shaping so well!

I'm in the process of shouting broken Russian swears in the phone with my best friends, the little joys in life.

I must say that I even shed a tear of emotion on this last game. Not a brilliant game, I thought Denmark had more will to win, even when Croatia had the better team, but watching the goalkeepers doing such great Jobs themselves and then watching people on the stadium and all others reactions for every single detail, it was quite touching.

I liked the knockout matches so far. Let's see Belgium and Brazil today.

I feel sorry for Portugal the most. Uruguay's goals were great though. And honestly I wished both Denmark and Croatia could go through.

As expected, slow sluggish game, without any sort of emotion at all. Hope the second half will be less dull.
