"Prob?" Lolz Lolz

you got to be in it to win it..and I don't see the rep of Ireland in the finals.
Cry Ras Violins :grin:Lay Down Laughing

Population of four million, with Gaelic football and hurling as our national sports, we decided we'd have the greatest rugby side in the northern world this time and make the football World Cup next time... Wink
no one is interested in heaving or geese football, and rugby ?..lol you haven't won that world cup either. Lay Down Laughing

We punch above our weight in international sports, buddy, whereas you's punch way below yours in football, and will again in this World Cup.

As for Gaelic football and hurling, sissy soccer players wouldn't last two minutes on a field with them boys... Wink

Great atmosphere.

David Luis is a nutjob, right? He gets sent off somewhere along the way...

Yeah, good first half, great goal by Neymar (who should have been sent off) and Croatia done well too, entertaining stuff...

2 horrible decisions by the ref, I hope this isn't gonna be a trend, but Neymar should have been sent off in the first half, and now a totally dodgy penalty for the hosts... No No

dodgy ref. dodgy Croatian keeper..he was pathetic, so neymar didn't get sent off but ends up with 2 goals, both of which were scored via goalie errors.

yep, its the world cup finals folks..the best football on the planet.

knowing me alan partridge, knowing you tennis frontier..ah ha.

first proper big match of the world cup on fri..re-run of the last world cup final. Holland v spain.

Lets hope Holland try to play some football this time round, not the fouling horrorfest they provided in the 2010 final.

The penalty was pathetic but I dont think Neymar should have been sent off. His foul wasnt a red card foul. Oscar was the star player and he deserved his goal

Well, if you raise your hand to hit a player, that's a red card. And Neymar looked at the opponent and hit him - without even attempting to play the ball...

RE: 2014 FIFA World Cup
All 3 of Brazil's goals would have been avoided with a better keeper. I understand why Neymar didn't get sent off given that it's the opening match in front of the home crowd and all, but that penalty decision was horrendous. Unfortunately, we're likely in for some more refereeing howlers, if this year's champions league and domestic seasons are any indications. So don't expect much better in matches run by European referees.

Brazil are solid, but Fred is a weak-link up front (though I think he'll score 3 goals or so, mainly after being fed balls on a silver plate), and their midfield lacks a bit of a creative spark. In fairness, in addition to Neymar's performance, Oscar had a great second half.

Exactly why we needed a stronger ref. This chap was a homer.

I thought Croatia looked good, and Modric in particular. Brazil were shaky, but that's understandable, given the pressure they're under, but I'm not sure they're the side the win this thing...

That was a stunner, eh? David Silva could have killed it on 43 minutes, and less than sixty seconds later Holland scored a beauty.

And Spain never recovered... No No

Some nice goals in the Holland-Spain match . Van Persie's header was neat. Robben worked hard and his speed in the last goal was spectacular.

The game also confirms Casillas's decline. He looks done. A goalkeeper's decline is less obvious than that of an upfield player, but for Casillas the signs have been there for some time.
