I feel sorry for Deutschland's next couple of opponents.
Hats off to Mexico!

At St. John's nothing is over until we decide it is! Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor? Hell no!

Germany gets two games to get it together before the round of 16. Shouldn't it be sombreros off for El Tri?;)

It would be something else if Tunisia could get a result tomorrow vs. England. Unlikely but the way this WC has been going, expect the unexpected.

Will be at the semi final in Saint Petersburg in a few weeks. Hoping Brazil can turn it around and finish top of their group since that would mean they’re on our side of the bracket for the match. Also a bit nervous about traveling to Russia but seems like the fans have been treated well thus far.

Seeing a lot of chemistry issues for these teams who dominate possession. We’ve seen a few times already if you’re an organized side who can counter quick there are opportunities to pull out results. Still think Belgium are poised to break out in their “golden era” and take it home!

Thank you! Yes we entered the lottery awhile back and decided to take the trip once we won the tickets. Hoping for a good game fingers crossed and a good tournament overall

Today Maher may be very happy!
Argentina struggling against the Vikings of Iceland.
Messi is a mess missing a penalty.

Every single restaurant was either packed or very crowded this morning with everyone watching World Cup in downtown Lima. We literally heard roars of cheering this morning early which woke us up when something happened in one of the games. Of course every minute of break in action turns to studio and all things Peru soccer team. Praying for miracle on Thursday

Poland looses to Senegal on a ridiculous assist from the referee. Referee should be banned from any more world cup games, but this being FIFA, he'll probably get a promotion.

Looks like Maher made it to Russia and is to blame for this. www.espn.com/soccer/blog/the-toe-poke/65...ng-world-cup?src=com

Assistant referee actually, but it could have been overturned by the field official who let it go. Agree it was a terrible play.
