Re: ITS CALLED FOOTBALL NOT SOCCER
lol Elmo, I looked up the word Soccer and it means "Boring" in Latin.

>>>Aha yes exactly you still have to play with all the teams on your turnament.<<<<

geez, now I really think this thing sucks, I thought this was like the championship? No sudden death, lose and your done? No wonder it's so popular with elemtary school girls. Do they have "do-overs" too?

>>>AC I know I am just jerking him because I see he want to look not concerned but in the dept of himself he is very angry about the fact the US serisuly lack in what is basically the most played sport worldwhide <<<<

Nope Roman, I actualy really don't care and now that I hear that you can lose and still be in it, I care even less, Geez no wonder the thing takes so long, like a month right? If you can lose and still not be out, what does it take to get in it? do you even have to win any games?

SHR let me more clear then ahah, you will be out yes but you have to end your qualification turnament before...if you lose this it simply mean you dont go to the next qualificatory turnament, you go home while the qualified teams of every turnament will proceed to the next one, 8° then 4° then semifinals then finals.

Lol you really dont know anything about it really?

Yes to get in you play with some teams in the phases that preceed the championships and be qualified which the US at least managed to do.

I think if you would support more your team you would have a good team by now.

Re: ITS CALLED FOOTBALL NOT SOCCER
I am not an expert of football and i watch only a few match now and ten mostly only my home team, AS Roma, and the world championship every 4 years.

I like Moto GP much more than soccer myself but i recognize that is the most played game in the world.

I always find it amusing that you Europeans cannot actualy belive that we really don't care for soccer, trust me we don't. It's also equally amusing to us that the rest of the planet goes so berserk for it. So whatever, have a good time with it and I hope your team does good.

US "soccer" team that as to meet Italy next<<<<

I thought we already lost? What we ain't out of it? you can lose in this deal and still play?
--

You lost against the Checzs and still have to play Italy and Ghana. There are 8 groups and from each group the number 1 and the runner-up go to the 1/8 finals (16 teams left). From then on it's a K.O when you lose the game and you're out of the tournament. So there's hope, beating Italy and Ghana will probably get you to the 2nd round.

You're in group E:

"Soccer blows, Football doesn't, that's the difference."

Which "Football" are you refering to, you dickwad?...you mean the so called American type which should actually be called "Handball" since the foot is only used about 10% of the time.

Someone tell me why the soccer players, when they run into each other, pretend to be hurt. They roll around on the ground crying. Please explain. Thanks.

Re: ITS CALLED FOOTBALL NOT SOCCER
I remember a big push for soccer/football during the late 70's and early 80's here in America...most parents enrolled their children in that sport because it was considered a "non-violent" alternative to football and baseball. These days it's all about grinding down skateboards, BMX bikes, and last but certainly not least...these kids are doing back flips on motocross bikes, as easy as pie.

I'm still a firm believer in the theory that says soccer/football is the most popular sport in the world because it's the most inexpensive sport that has ever been invented (total cost-1 ball, until talent/competition requires uniforms, cleats, pads, etc). Most countries don't have the financial ability to offer the facilities nor the equipment to cover the wide array of sporting possibilities that highly devenoperies can. Poor kids the world over may dream of jet-ski racing, huge wave riding, Honda CR250R back-flipping, half-pipe McTwisting good times, but in reality they are lucky to grow up with access to a "football" they can kick around their village with dusty bare feet.

"Someone tell me why the soccer players, when they run into each other, pretend to be hurt. They roll around on the ground crying. Please explain. Thanks."

to coax the ref into giving the opposing player a yellow/red card.

I particularly despise it when they don't even hit the other player and still roll around on the ground faking it.

That said, thatt's the only part of the game I don't like.
