    Must admit I find it funny how Blaze (a NZ man) was the one criticising the Poms about their reaction to Aus losing.

    because momentum carried him nearly 10 metres down the field perhaps? definate yellow and harsh red, but thats the way it goes some times. If you watched the game im sure you would have seen 5-6 occasions where Italy scored free kicks from dives.

    That penalty at the end was a shocker though.

    From what I've observed, against the very top sides, you get one or, at the most, two genuine goal scoring opportunities per match. Unless you take those, you lose - as instanced in Australia's games against Brazil and Italy.

    For what it's worth, I thought the penalty decision certainly wasn't blatantly wrong as some people have tried to suggest. When I saw it, I immediately thought it was a penalty and then thought how stupid Lucas Neill was trying something like that in that situation.

    All in all, England stands proudly above your vast island

    Must say I agree with Blaze in that I'd like to see England go down because of people like you and Marc. In saying that, there's plenty of decent English posters who I'd like to see happy because England has gone close, if not won.

    I dont see why people are bagging England so much...

    Yeah they havent played great, but you only need to play as good as you have to to get through...

    Im cheering for them from here on.. Australia are out and my tip Holland are gone to.. Im cheering for England..

    On the Aussie game, personally im with Jack, the trailing hand of Neill "may" have clipped Grosso, but in saying that the game didnt deserve to end like that..

    It was a very hollow feeling to say the least...

    Hopefully though people will actually stand up and take notice now that these "convicts" CAN play "soccer"

    In 4 years time we'll be back better then ever!!!

    I'm sure the minute that Vanuatu or Samoa produce some decent footballers, New Zealand will have a good run in the World Cup.

    Oh, look - you added a smiley, so that automatically renders your flame-baited post a joke...

    Germany to win the WC from here, anyone but Italy, Brazil and England would be acceptable.
    We know england wont win cause they are **** and Italy are cheating ****ers...

    What a ******** decision, we're gonna dominate Asia now, come back in 2010 and do better than we did this time round...

    yer it was a hollow way to end. it wasnt a penalty in my opinion as the italians dived all game long, however what is done is done, and i dont think i would want to see italy win but if they do i wont be to upset. i would like to see england win but i think germany and brazil are too strong. bring on 2010

    It's funny, though. If Italy had gone out, it'd make a second world cup victory for England just a little bit easier, yet there's still truckloads of them [yes Goughy, I know it doesn't count you] cheering Italy for no reason other than they got pounded in every other sport bar rugby for the last 20 years.

    Oh no wait, it's because we play "bad" football. Sorry, my bad. And marc, make it all one post so you're easier to skip over and ignore next time.

    I hope Ukraine or Portugal or another lesser nation win it from here. On another note, Blaze is a gun.

    Geez mate, why did you have to do this after my initial warning to you

    I won't enjoy doing this one bit but you've forced my hand - seven day ban.
