    they scored in the last minute and got themselfs into the next round of the last 16 teams!!
    This is a sensation and even the bigger sensation: they lead group C ahead of England (also qualified), Algeria and Slovenia(both have to go home).
    Remember: this is the world cup and our super - super bowl.

    Cheer a bit - they deserve it.

    So happy for the US team, of course you winning the group makes it more difficult for us, England, but thats their own fault they have been shocking, if Germany win tonight we play them on Sunday and there is a lot of history, football wise, between our two countries .

    My money is on Argentina to win the final, is anyone interested in Wimbledon ?
    There is game going on that is the longest in the history of tennis.
    I would love Any Roddick to win he has been my favourite for many years but I have yet to see him win anything, he must have because he is so high in the rankings.

    You will loose your money:-)

    Of course I watch wimbledon as "our" Federer is playing. But during soccer world cup there is no chance of watching a tennis match that will go into the third day tomorrow ?!?

    ok Granny 59, which team is your money on. I do like Federer but he seems to be making heavy weather of it, we are lucky to have Wimbledon and the footie on the tv and the cricket soon too

    it is hard to say, but all favorite teams didnt play well so far. So there might be a winner at the end nobody had on the list.....we will see.
    What does "making heavy weather" mean?
