    That's horrific defending for Japan's goal. Dire.

    Cameroon's passing, final ball and crossing were absolutely atrocious. Even Wright-Phillips has more basic ball skill than that.

    Yeah, teams like Poland and Greece have really lit up the last couple of world cups with some fantastic play.

    Lol are you being serious? Totally dire match, the skill-set and effort of the players was absolutely dire. WTF wasn't Alex Song playing, is he injured or something? Would have been the best player on the pitch by a long way.

    *shrug*, I have no idea how to judge the 'skill'. I found the game itself exciting.

    If Japan & Cameroon are not among the world's 32 then Scotland are perilously close to it.

    I don't think either team "call themselves one of the 32 best teams"

    I think they qualified for the WC fair and sqaure, and will take their chances.

    By your reckoning, the Netherlands and Denmark will inevitably go through to the last 16, and of course that can still happen. But if, for example, Japan go through ahead of one of the Euro teams, will that change your mind?

    I've lived most of the last 20 years in Tokyo, and have watched Japan go from falling agonizingly short of qualifying for the WC, to qualifying for the first time, scoring their first-ever goal, winning their first-ever match, and now winning "away from home" for the first-ever time.

    That is what the World Cup is about -- it's about dreams coming true, step by step. You can do your Euro stuff every four years, and have fun with it, but the World Cup is about so much more than that, and if you can't see that then I don't know why you bother watching it.

    And?

    We've not made a finals tournament since 1998, so we're obviously a level below those who I'm having a whinge about.

    Manager said he was going to bench him a few days ago. Was tactical.

    Thought it was some sort of bad joke when I heard it. And playing Eto'o on the right wing!?!

    That bloke needs his head examined.
