    If Greece score, those 2/3 will be asking themselves the same question.

    Dire team.

    South korea-Greece, Best game of the world cup so far. . South korea are a very good side and well deserved their win, greece are just horrible to watch,a lot of hoofball,il never give out about ireland hoofing the ball again.

    I think England will do well this year, and although their opener against the US is a tricky fixture, if they can get a result tonight they'll almost certainly go into the second round on the back of three straight wins. I think they might have an early scare tonight but reckon things will click for them and they'll win 3-1.

    Hmm. Though I would have agreed with you before Mr. Green's intervention.....

    Desperate stuff from England.

    I feel sorry for Green even though it's entirely his own fault. I imagine the faithful are tucking into a nice side of scapegoat as we speak. They'll make it out of the group but gifting the ball and leadfoot defending would get 'em murdered by the likes of Spain and Brazil. Even France would fancy it. Ribery vs Carragher/Terry anyone?

    Time to earn your millions Fab.

    That Dempsey is one neat player. Never puts a foot wrong.

    Yes it happens in virtually every world cup

    England were woeful, was very impressed with the central def Onyewu, thought he was awesome, so was Howard - some very brave saves.
    Looking at Korea now on RTE Player - nice footballers, and there wingbacks bomb the line -

    I went to a wedding yesterday which didn't have the football on. I wasn't impressed!! Tried to watch the Argies and Capello's overated bunch of misfits when I got in half cut.

    God I love watching Messi play. It's good to see teams going for it and not shutting up shop with 10 to go.

    I'm also looking forward to Ghana/Serbia today. Could be a bit tasty. Two strong teams who'' challenge Germany for top spot. Group D is a tough one to call and there are no gimme fixtures.

    Not a disaster for England, although granted they weren't great, particularly in the first half. It's just a contest to see who scores more goals against Slovenia and Algeria now. England must be one of the only top seeds with two games in the group they're almost guaranteed to win. Part of me thinks with Capello in charges there's a chance they could grow into the tournament, but it's equally (or more likely) they'll flop in the second round- Serbia, Germany or Ghana would all be difficult opponents.

    Re: Messi, it's a joy watching someone so willing to take on opponents and take risks.

    Looking forward to Serbia-Ghana today- battle of the second place?

    I don't get why people here seem to be completely dismissing Australia's chances. They'll be challenging to go through imo. I've layed Germany for tonight's game.

    I had feeling England would flop against the USA, I was going to have bet on it at 6-1, however England got the goal, I still thought the USA could come back though, and they did
    hence I backed the USA in play to win, but covered my position with a Draw bet as the game went on.
    I just knew England would come crashing to the ground after all the hype.
    The draw might actually be a good thing for England, it kind of takes the pressure off then as they have been exposed s shyte, especialy with butter-fingers in goal.


    Anyway Algeria, it will be interesting to see how they get on, I expect they will put in a much improved performance than their last against us.
    I commented on youtube highlights of that game, that Ireland should be going to the World Cup instead of Algeria, I was expecting to get
    abuse for saying some but some Algerian replied to say he agreed.

    Anyway I hope they do well as that makes us look better!

    Apparently Algeria's population is just 2 million!!

    I also think they might do well, they have a strong mid and defence, but then they have Kewell up front!!! will be interesting

    That's Slovenia's population. Algeria's is around 35 million and their own diaspora in France and elsewhere across W.Europe.....

    Oops!!! Seems like I misheard that then!!
    I must admit I was rather surprised to think Algeria population's was only 2 million, but that is what I though I heard, that's why I commented.
    Slovenia have done very well if they only have a 2 million population, I though their population was more than that.
    I had to look it up to find out where it was, I get it confused with Slovakia.
    Apparently it used to be part of Yugoslavia. I expect there are far more the 2 million who are eligible to play for Slovenia.
    Anyway Slovenia have just gone 1:0 up.

    Also only 2 of their 23 man squad actually play for a Slovenian club, more play in Italy (5), Germany(4) and Holland(3).
    Only 3 of the Algerian squad play in Algeria.

    Not the case, there's very few people living in the rest of Yugoslavia elegible for Slovenian citizenship.
