Brazil still own the worst loss in a knockout round WC game.  Hold the line, Taegeuks!

They got a goal and close to a couple others.  Brazil obviously in cruise control.

Morocco eliminates Spain on penalty kicks, 3-0!  Spain had just dominated the whole game in time of possession and shots on goal.  Great to see another non-European team advance, especially how well Morocco played defense.  I think they still haven't allowed a single goal.

I guess the first big upset of the knockout rounds?  The coffee shop at Federal Triangle I think is Algerian but the owner and staff were elated right after the game.

Well Brazil is not European. Neither is Argentina.  Although the folks there think they are.

Switzerland needs to find another gear.  Shoot an apple off of Ronaldo's head...anything.

So, it's being reported that there has been little trouble at the WC. This is being ascribed to an absense of alcohol. Well, I never....  :lol:  ;)

Could it really be not good for us?  The next couple days will be a true test with no games.

The threat of flogging and amputation of your hand for public urination might also have that effect.

Great idea - that would also have the long-term benefit of cutting down on the hurled D-cells

Why do the Croats have checked unis instead of the Czechs?

So the Walking Chessboards have defeated the Samba Boys - barring a real shockerooney, I think they can put France's name on the trophy now... :roll:

I blame it on Cain... ;)

Argentina progress after a thrilling game, which saw the Clog Boys come from two-down to force extra-time - Argentina winning the penalty shoot-out... :roll:

Argies now living in paradise... ;)

And happy they missed Brazil. I don’t think anyone else here roots for them but I will. Because of Messi. And I have been to Argentina a few times and enjoyed it.

US soccer journalist Grant Wahl died at the stadium today covering the Argentina game. His brother, who is an open homosexual, thinks the Qatari government murdered him for wearing a rainbow shirt the other day.

He also wrote this article yesterday

https://grantwahl.substack.com/p/world-cup-daily-day-25

ESPN is reporting that he wrote he was sick with a bad cold that turned to bronchitis that he went to the hospital for and was given antibiotics.

He collapsed in the US media are during the game today.   

It looks 99% suspicious but with a real 1% that it wasn't I guess.   This absolutely should have never been in Qatar.
