    FIFA's recognized nations are different from say the Olympics (Team Great Britain). I read the official reasoning a little while ago, but don't remember. Let me see if I can find it.


    Also, who cares? It makes them worse, The English could use some of those Welsh players (Bale, Ramsey).


    Edit: Found this. Sheds a little light. Hard to research while watching this game. Lol. http://www.slate.com/articles/news_and_ ... teams.html

  • Love it. Brazil has its moments but I think Chile has the momentum. I just hope it doesn't go to PK's. I never cared for that.

    For all you unfamiliar with World Cup overtimes. Two 15 minute halves. No golden goal (meaning game doesn't end with a goal)

    No sir. He's got to for that. Studs were high but intent was on the ball. Yellow no red. dangerous not reckless or violent

    If it caught the keeper higher than maybe

  • PKs seems like such a cheap way to win. I don't know what a good alternative would be, though. Maybe let them play another fifteen on golden goal with no offsides flags or something.

    Yeah, that's ridiculous too.

    Edit: and he makes the first save!

    Have to disagree...back to goal, chests the ball forward as he's turning and hits it...ridiculous. Plus its a solid 15 yards further out.

    Either way...both ridiculous. 1a. and 1b. Put them in whatever order

    And f--- Chelsea. Mourinho kills attacking players anyways

    Interesting on Lukaku. He was one of the Prems rising stars last year. Bendtner was once though too and he's certainly tout droit

    Bendther was just a joke... Another nice finding from "the voyeur" (sorry I hate Wenger even though I'm French). Speaking of Lukaku, I think he has great physical abilities, but no skills... If you wanna see a great Belgian sticker take a look to Batshuayi.
