PORTUGAL IS NEXT....
The Iberian Peninsula is now being outscored 11-1 in this WC.
We may be headed for a Brazil versus Argentina final. And in terms of international sports, they really dislike each other, too.
Awesome. Pepe gone. CR7 possibly gone. We could actually make it out of the Group of Death!
Spain and Australia are now officially out of the World Cup. Wow, who would have thought Spain would have played so horribly?
I’m penciling Italy into the final.
Looks like Spain is out after being defeated by Chile.
Spaniards are going to be seriously shocked at this defeat. From World Cup champs to out of the running pretty much right out of the gate.
Outscored 7-1 after the PK to go up 1-0 on NED
Same thing happened to France in 2002. The came in as the defending WC and European Champions, and thudded out.
Four years is a long time.

Yes, it is, and that’s very true. Four years in sports is an eternity.
I have to admit if the US won the World Cup, I think a good many Europeans would be flabbergasted. I had a friend of mine of here say, “I didn’t even know the USA had a team....”
LOL. So if the US pulls off a victory, I think it’s going to be bemusing for me as an American over here.
Indeed, amazing turn of events.
Cristiano has been playing like crap.
