Turned it on a minute late and missed that. Wild group. Belgium was spanked it looks like.

Not so much spanked but, as previously discussed, time has caught up with them. As the commentary, over here, put it - 'Belgium are going to have to do something they haven't wanted to, this tournament - do something quickly...'  ;)

Croatian quality prevailed, in the end - but at least the Wafflemen broke their World Cup duck.... ;)

It’s a lottery draw but the groups all seem fairly matched.

Looking ahead to tomorrow - as you may know, the English are known for their sense of tolerance, fair-play, seeing both sides of the argument, and supporting the underdog.

To that end...GO TEAM USA!!!  CRUSH THE IRANIANS!!! YEEEEAYYY!!!   ;)

Also looking ahead to tomorrow, a conversation took place between two gentlemen...

Q. 'How do you get two whales in a car?'

A. 'Along the M4, and across the Severn Bridge...'   ;)

Flapjack men should have tied the Wafflemen in the first game.  But now the former are out and the latter are up crap kriek

For those who don't major on soccer, here's why the final Group games are played simultaneously (the most notorious game in World Cup history...)

No one will ever be able to top Gianluigi Buffon belting out Il Canto with such gusto you could clearly hear it over the crowd noise  :D

This seems like a good synopsis of Group B heading into today’s games. Go USA!

I wonder if the Iranians have prepared the gallows to welcome back their team

Disallowed USA goal looked onside, to me... :shock: Unfortunate, as it would probably have been the game-winner...

Don't they use cranes?  So no drop, just lift one off the ground to dangle for half an hour?

I doubt that even this would be able to shut up Alexi Lalas
