    Xhaka will probably be suspended for the next game...what an idiot.

    I'm afraid one of France, Argentina, Spain, Brazil will win this world cup.

    Of the ones who realistically might have a chance, I would probably be least unhappy for Holland to win it.

    Numerous teams also scored more than 2 goals in 3 games.

    Why do you have the be this way? Can't just let us have this. It's actually pretty damn impressive.

    Sure, I just implied it would mean nothing in a knockout round as draws could only get you as far as Overtime and then Penalty shootout.

    If you want me to admit that the US have a real shot at the Quarterfinal. sure.

    Could they frustrate Messi and Argentina, even that.

    They are not the only darkhorse was what I meant to say.

    I don't have just one horse, to be honest I do not have a horse in this race, just want a good Offense to win it all.

    The last time Costa Rica went to the Semis, I rooted for them but it was ugly Defense and Navas.

    I was just messing with you. We definitely need to score more freely if there is to be any chance in hell at getting far. I think we can win ugly tomorrow but definitely cannot against Argentina. Going to have to be able to bag at least 2 if not 3 to beat them...assuming this Cup doesn't get even more bats*** crazy and Australia does the unthinkable.

    There are definite favorites but there are no more easy games for anyone. Every team has to be at their best. The difference between favorite and the rest has closed significantly and anyone can take a game at this stage.

    FYI...while still impressive that year, CR only made the quarters (losing to Holland in pk's). The US still has the highest finish of any CONCACAF team...even if it was 1930.

    Dude has literally done nothing since arriving at Madrid years ago. His career fall off was drastic

    I was perplexed at how well the team was parking the bus at times, it's a great withdraw in your turtle shell strategy, kudos.

    Overall I was very pleased with teams that were viewed as good but not great teams closing the gap to the household name nations, maybe one or two will surprise.

    Typical vile and racist Serbian behavior.

    This isn’t an isolated case when it comes to them.

    I'm sure that chance by Pulisic won't come back to haunt us later

    Funny story. The Dutch keeper was only the Number 3 and then prevailed during the tourney.

    Will be a Top 3 goalie of the tourney.

    This isn't true. Holland are two provinces (where Amsterdam, Rotterdan the hague are). The Netherlands is the entire country

    whelp, unless a miracle happens we are gonna lose.

    Scoring 1 was already hard for our team. Needing it just to tie it up? there is still plenty of minutes on the clock
