    The fact that when S.Korea knocked Italy out in 2002, Lygon St (Italian central) was trashed makes me want Italy to fail again.

    I never understood why they thrashed their own 'neighbourhood' though.

    England, they are overrated
    Italy - for the boring football they played in 90s.

    Go USA, I will be happy if we win one match. Although I think we are good enough to go to the second round.

    To be fair, you won't find many more unfair results than that game. Still pretty stupid to go out and wreck stuff, though.

    Hah yeah that's true, but I found it quite satisfying none the less. I was living in Singapore at the time but I've heard the trashing of Lygon St. was hilarious. I don't know about you, but surely trashing your own symbolic neighbourhood defeats the purpose of standing up for one's country.

    I mean after Richmond were robbed by Freo, there's no point me going to punt road and throwing bricks into the houses there.

    Of course I'm not painting all Italians under this category, but those ones were quite a bit wack.

    Either Paraguay or Sweden.

    That way the impossible may become possible...

I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    Argentina, so hopefully the Serbs go through. And of course Japan and Croatia, but it's not that likely.
    The one, the only CW Black
    Code:
    47.3 W Coppinger to Heads 
        Smacked the ball straight into the groin of Iwuajoku who has fallen over, 
        miraculously with the ball still caught in his scrotal area! Out!

    Worst footballing nation in the history of the game, no idea how they rigged the FIFA standings to be 5th in the world pre world cup.

    I hope they get belted ten nil every game, and I hope they never get to a world cup final stage again.
    They're actually better than you give them credit for. Didn't show it today though.
