Just saving this for posterity, for our children, and our children's children, to savour that one moment back in June of '10.

Just in case the original accidentally gets edited.

Re: 2010 World Cup actual match discussion here (all matches)

I think Switzerland have every chance of going through this evening.

I'd like to see Spain go through from this group too.

In the meantime :

I love the All Whites in their All Black gear yesterday, shame they are out, but can go back to NZ feeling proud.

I must say that he gives many cards, but this time they were actually all clear fouls that deserved them (with the exception of the one for the player that comlained when the hand was not a red one...the player was right.). In other games the refs gave bookings for nothing.

Yes you are right Although 2-3 yellows could have been not given. I think lot of the refs are giving yellows based on players reaction rather than seeing the actual foul.

I really thought second half would result in some red cards but they all calmed down LOL It was like a chess game I must say.

Toping the group might end up being a poisoned chalice though if Spain finishes second.

I've just spent the evening eating pizza, drinking Primitivo and making love to a beautiful woman. What were you guys doing? What was the result of the Swiss game?

Re: 2010 World Cup actual match discussion here (all matches)

I had a hinting suspicion before kick off last night that the Swiss Nati would not go through but I kept it to myself in order to not 'rub up my Swiss friends the wrong way'. Seriously if they can't score a goal in open play against Honduras the whipping boys of the WC coupled with the fact their goal against Spain being the definitive football definition of "scrappy". Then yeah pack yer bags boys, defense can only get you so far!!!!!!!!

I think the US will prevail over Ghana who got into the round of 16 on a wing and a pray, read: haven't scored a goal in open play instead passing only on 2 penalties, one of which was extremely lucky (Serbia handball).

Italy.... must of forgot to pay off the ref before the Slovenia game......
