Yea, to 100% advance they need to win 2-0 vs para and england needs to beat sweden by 1-0.
There can be a chance to advance if they beat para 1-0 and england beats sweden 2-0. But than it goes to some rule of elimination that i dunno O.o

i really hope the american team does well against the italians. it's not likely i know, but i'd like to seem them go a little further so it can help boost the popularity of the game. it sucks to think as soon as they get knocked out of the cup we'll be back to watching games where only american teams compete for the title. There's only one winner of the world cup and its never who you want it to be (it seems to me anyway).

my want to win list:

England
France
Portugal (cause the greeks fucking cheated in the euro)

I want to see the USA at least get through this group

My predict to win list

Germany (always a good prediction)
Netherlands (watch out world!)
Brazil (fuckers always contend)


pred is gay and who is russia? this is the world cup!!

Terry = man of match. what a hero! england made the right choice to sub a defender for an offensive mid wing in the last 30 minutes. The trinidad offense was only ever counter attacking and the opening on beckham let him deliver that ball to the stork known as Crouch(who sucked the first half, i was screaming wtf when they left him on and pulled Owen off but hey, he scored). Trinidad and tobago did a fantastic job holding on as long as they did, the strategy to put -everyone- on D was looking to pay off t'ill that 80th minute (or so) goal. What was Lampard smoking (cept that one chance where he grazed the left post on a shot where he didn't even look at the goal) and Gerrard totally ROCKED that goalie at the last there.

big props to trinidad for a gg that had me worried england was about to take a humiliating tie. came close to a loss even! england better shape up and not walk into the sweden match (or any other) with that kind of confidence. someone explain to them the last 20 minutes of a match isn't when you start trying.

All in all though i predict them to play like shit again, they're just too sure to win the division and don't particularly care to get tired so early. They'll want to warm Owen up (as he struts around again) and not risk hurting Rooney so early. maybe it'll help them in later games against fatigued teams... maybe they'll wish they had the adrenaline going.

One thing is true though, that didn't look like a premiership quality team at all.

Germany and England aren't playing well at all. Ecuador, on the other hand, has impressed the hell out of me. I wouldn't expect the Dutch to do so well. France has been playing like shit the last 4 years and if they don't get their act together they won't make it out of their group.

My "to watch" list: Brazil, Ecuador, Argentina, Czech, Italy.

oh, another thing that's been bugging me about the ABC/ESPN/ESPN2 commentators: what the fuck is up with all those stats? Christ. Every other word out of their mouths or statistic on the screen is how Croatia has gone 0-13-2 while leading at the half or how Ecuador has never won in Europe or some bullshit like that ...

those statistics don't mean shit. the teams that are playing aren't the same from four years ago, hell, not even the same countries are represented.

they're trying too much to broadcast it like they American sports. Blech.

Wow. Argentina looks great. I LOVED that second goal by Argentina, pure brilliance. I'd love to see them play a real team. Serbia and Mont. got fucking wasted.

I'm rooting for the team thats player base is made up entirely of players from the nation they represent.... To bad that team is intramural 3 year old squad in Salt Lake City and honestly, an the albino on the team just about made me stop rooting for them. I do not aprove of Albinolandians.
