For USMNT, it’s been a long road to Thursday’s game vs. Germany
washingtonpost.com ^ | June 23, 2014 | Steven Goff

Posted on 06/24/2014 12:25:05 AM PDT by Berlin_Freeper

SAO PAULO, Brazil — The U.S. national soccer team will arrive at Arena Pernambuco in Recife for Thursday’s pivotal World Cup match against Germany after playing in Amazonian air as thick as hummus four days earlier. Germany will take the field for the Group G showdown with the benefit of 27 extra hours of recuperation and preparation after competing in another northeast coastal city, Fortaleza.

I am dealing with computer issues but let's will carry on as best we can...

Mexico beats Croatia 3-1, advances in World Cup
One of the first things Miguel Herrera did when he became Mexico's fourth coach in a year was call Rafael Marquez and ask the 35-year-old defender known as ''the boss'' to return to the national side as captain.

On Monday, the world saw why.

Netherlands stays perfect in Group B with win against Chile
“I thought it was a game at the highest level that was won by the smartest team," said Dutch boss Louis van Gaal after the match. “Chile had one chance in the first half and that was it. I think it’s been proven that we give very little away and create a lot of chances.”

With both teams already through to the Round of 16, courtesy of wins against Spain and Australia by each side, this essentially became a tussle to avoid Brazil in the next round.

Spain bows out of World Cup with Group B win against Australia
Though nothing rested on the game, Spain showed some of the clever passing football that has seen it dominate the game over the past six years - winning Euro 2008, its first World Cup in South Africa in 2010 and then Euro 2012.

With that domination now at an end, the task facing Spain coach Vicente del Bosque is to manage the transition from an aging squad that has won everything in the game - to a new generation of players waiting to take center stage.

Netherlands didn't deserve to win, says Chile's coach
"They ended up winning, but in my opinion it was unfair because I think Chile made a huge effort to attack," Sampaoli told reporters. "We wanted to play and the Netherlands didn't."

World Cup 2014: Today at the tournament - day 13
Which is the only team from Groups C and D with no chance of progressing to the second round?

Yes, you guessed right. But while Roy Hodgson's England will have packed all but their kits ahead of their final Group D match against Costa Rica, there are seven other teams waiting to discover their World Cup fates on Tuesday.

Group D
Costa Rica v England
Italy v Uruguay

Group C
Greece v Ivory Coast
Japan v Colombia

England have no scapegoat - Phil Neville
Being knocked out of a major international tournament is probably the worst feeling I have had in football, but England's early exit from this World Cup will not scar our young players.

In the past there has always been a scapegoat when England have gone out. I have been one myself, when I gave away a penalty against Romania that meant we were eliminated from Euro 2000.

But there is no individual to blame this time and that is a good thing. England have fallen short as a team and it is devastating that we are out, but we need to take the positives away from Brazil.

Bloodbath...

England make nine changes for Costa Rica match
Surprisingly, the England boss named his entire starting line-up for Tuesday's match, with Gary Cahill and Daniel Sturridge the only survivors from last week's 2-1 defeat to Uruguay.

"Well, Ben Foster will play in goal," Hodgson said. "The right-back will be Phil Jones.

"Gary Cahill will play centre-half alongside Chris Smalling, and Luke Shaw will play left-back.

"In midfield we will have Milner, Lampard, Wilshere, Barkley, Lallana and Sturridge will play up front."

Lifting the lid on the World Cup shame of Roy Hodgson's side and the bloated FA party in Brazil
The FA charter plane, top heavy with England’s bloated World Cup party of around 80 underperforming personnel, will touch down first in Manchester and then Luton on Wednesday afternoon on their hasty retreat from Brazil.

The pampered underachievers — both players and officials — will scuttle towards a convoy of chauffeured cars and then home to their families.

There will be no welcoming party of England fans thankful for having been entertained by their heroes on the greatest football stage in the world. Just a miserable retreat for a pathetic Team England.

'Disgusting': Steven Gerrard eager to weed out England shirkers
England captain Steven Gerrard has described allegations that English players have deliberately wriggled out of international duty as "disgusting" and called on those concerned to be publicly named and shamed.

Queens Park Rangers manager Harry Redknapp claimed on Sunday that during his time at Tottenham Hotspur, "there were two or three players who did not want to play for England".

Roy Hodgson asks Steven Gerrard to play on
"The manager has asked me to stay. I spoke to him and said I'd need at least three weeks to clear my head."

Why Costa Rica fans should root for Greece to beat the Ivory Coast on Tuesday
All four Group C teams remain alive in the World Cup. One of those four will face Costa Rica in the knockout round this weekend. The Ticos should be hoping to face the Greeks.

Group C concludes Tuesday with Colombia-Japan and Greece-Ivory Coast playing simultaneously at 2 p.m.

If the Ticos hold on to the top spot in Group D on Tuesday morning, they’ll avoid a treacherous Colombian team who already have qualified for the knockout round and virtually have clinched the Group C title.

Assuming Costa Rica wins Group D (their odds of doing so are around 89 percent), La Sele most likely will face the winner of Ivory Coast vs. Greece.

England must get a point to avoid their worst ever campaign

Pessimistic English put their money on Costa Rica
England’s World Cup humiliation is complete. The punters, normally among the most patriotic of supporters for the national team even in miserable times, have decided this latest team of no-hopers really do have no hope, causing many to put their money on Costa Rica to beat England on Tuesday.

Ladbrokes is reporting a marked shift in support for the tiny Central American republic in England’s final group encounter on Tuesday, and now stands to make a loss if Costa Rica wins.

Italy-Uruguay matchpack: Winner takes all
Uruguay, semi-finalists four years ago, will arrive in Natal on an almighty high after Suarez's double strike beat England and eased the pain of their opening 3-1 loss to Costa Rica - a match their totemic striker missed as he recovered his fitness.

Italy also lost to Costa Rica by 1-0 but their opening victory over England means the four-times World Cup winners need a point from the fixture, while twice champions Uruguay must win because of their inferior goal difference.

Japan vs. Colombia
Alberto Zaccheroni's side lost their opening match 2-1 to Ivory Coast, before picking up a goalless draw with basement side Greece on June 19.

As a result, Japan sit third in the group on one point, two points behind second-place Ivory Coast, who face Greece on the same evening.

As it stands, a Japan victory against Colombia would be enough to see them advance into the next round if Ivory Coast narrowly lose against Greece.

Colombia, however, have already safely booked their spot in the knockout stage of the competition following two wins. The South American team opened their group campaign with a 3-0 win over Greece, before beating Ivory Coast 2-1 last time out.

Here’s the thing about England - they need to make sure not to over-react to their showing here. They played two good, tough games against good teams, and were competitive in both of them. It’s not an embarrassment like what Spain did in their first two.

LA is under alert, huge celebrations in Los Angeles over the TriColor.

World Cup 2014: 4 arrests during celebrations in Los Angeles area after Mexico beats Croatia

This shows largely why the USA has stopped playing to some extent home games vs. Mexico in LA. Columbus Ohio seems to largely be the homebase for the USA's games.

In one way, it doesn't strike me right they celebrate so much but I'm sure you have big celebrations when Italy wins in the World Cup as well.

The thing with the World Cup is after Sunday, either Netherlands or Mexico won't still be in the World Cup. I know the Dutch will be favored. So fans have to celebrate while their team is there. Since the game is in Latin America, I have to give that edge to Mexico. They did only go out to penalties in the 1986 World Cup against West Germany.

Although Japan and Greece appear to be a rung below Ivory Coast, I'd fancy Costa Rica's chances against any of these teams. It will be a famous game when the USA and Costa Rica squared off in the snow in that competitive game, despite the sunny climates CR is in, they did not play that game too badly.

England’s defending was their achilles heel. Glad they are going with Luke Shaw today.

England should almost consider the clubs that play the most home-nation players over the top clubs.

At least the Saints seem to consistently play a majority of home-nations player. They should almost consider just sending the whole Southampton team. That may be excessive but that is the way the West Germans did it prior with Bayern Munich. Of course, there would be a few slots to still fill in, go with teams that play Brits (and Irish) like Palace too.

One of Australia’s top players, their penalty kicker was from Crystal Palace. Australia and England both played well but crashed out.

But I think they were more impressive this time, with two solid victories and a draw against the host country. If (when!) the US advances on Thursday, that will give CONCACAF 3 teams of the final 16 (ok, there’s a way, way, outside chance Honduras makes it too, but let’s not get that fanciful).

Is that enough to give CONCACAF 4 full slots for 2018, avoiding the need for a play-in game with the half-slot, and if so, at whose expense? Asia?

Using “who is most likely to advance” as the criteria, I see the South Americans (CONMEBOL) with 5, Europeans (UEFA) with 5, our own CONCACAF with 3, and Africa (CAF) with 3 of the final 16. Asia/Oceania (AFC/OFC) have some outside shots of getting in, but so far, have had a lousy tournament.

For the record, my assumptions for this include:

A1 BRAZIL
A2 MEXICO
B1 NETHERLANDS
B2 CHILE


C1 Columbia
C2 Ivory Coast
D1 Costa Rica
D2 Toss-up: Italy or Uruguay
E1 France
E2 Toss-up: Ecuador or Switzerland
F1 Argentina
F2 Nigeria
G1 Germany
G2 United States
H1 Belgium
H2 Algeria

splitting the two toss-ups (both CONMEBOL vs. UEFA) evenly between the confederations.

But I think they were more impressive this time, with two solid victories and a draw against the host country.

I can show 2 different places where I predicted Mexico to draw Brazil, here is one as Audax though I predicted 2-2 and not because Mexico is more impressive but because Mexico has a good history with Brazil in recent years. Brazil is the host nation but they were given what is seen by a lot of people a fluke penalty against Croatia. That match is very controversial. This is not the Brazil of Romario.

2012, Brazil 0 2 Mexico, 2007, Brazil 0 2 Mexico, 2005, Mexico 1 0 Brazil. 2003, 2 wins by Mexico over Brazil. One of those wins is in the Confederations Cup, I think Mexico also denied Brazil winning the Olympics, different teams but still, they make a big deal out of Brazil never winning the Olympic gold medal.

One can do Head 2 Head comparisons at Soccerway to see how clubs and national teams do against each other. Versus Argentina, not as good but they were playing them well in 2010.

I think generally Argentina is considered Mexico’s “bogey team” by the Mexican fans. I’ve always thought that they both play a similar style, with Argentina just having better players.
