Too bad Neymar can't have dual citizenship, he'd fit right in with them.:P B)

Always amazes me how incompetent people like Mark Geiger have a job and are often praised

Didn’t think that was a PEN at all but rooting for England so I’ll take it. Columbia are a bunch of lunatic babies. Hope they get demolished in the 2nd half.

I actually don't think he's doing that bad a job. And I do think that penalty kick call was the correct one. He's taking a lot of crap from both the English and Colombians and so I think he tried regaining control by calling those fouls and giving out yellow cards.

But right now, in the second extra time, England looks deflated. I think Colombia will win this one, which IMHO, sets up a less interesting game against Sweden. But we shall see.

Glad England won. Despite their meltdown near the end of the game, I thought they deserved to win.

But a horrible horrible way for any team to lose a game, especially a World Cup game. Don't like determining the outcome on PKs.

Uruguay but only if Cavanni plays, I'm not a Suarez fan, he's Neymar light., but I'm not a fan of the Frenchies even more.

Belgium I'd root for anyone playing against Neymar plus Prince Harry's on Belgium. This should be the finals.

Croatia the fans will be against them but I think they'll be more creative than Spain and carve the Ruskies up.

Sweden Listening to all the English announcers and analysts is getting old. And England has recent history.

No analytical reason as I am only a very casual soccer fan (and not even sure if it is possible), but I think a France England final would be a lot of fun.
