    Surprisingly good performance by England, as opposed to the boring rubbish that is often served up. Very enjoyable match full stop.

    Shame it wasn't a friendly or we'd have enjoyed that even more. One of the best England international games i've seen in ages. Bloody nervy at times though.

    So which group runners-up miss out? Denmark?

    - As featured in The Independent.

    "as much a news event as an actual footballer, a worthy stop-start centre forward, but an all-time hyper-galactico when it comes to doing funny things with cars and hats, a player whose signing proves once again that the Premier League is still undoubtedly the best in the world when it comes to doing things with cars and hats."
    - Barney Ronay on Mario Balotelli

    Thought England returned to old habits for about 15-20 minutes in the second half. Too many players dropping deep to receive the ball, only one outlet up front, the ball inevitably being lost in bad areas. At least they were smart enough to do good professional fouls to stop the resultant break.

    Yeah. The World Cup denied the talents of Bendtner.

    Could be some good games though, apparently France are not likely to be seeded.

    Yeah I would still certainly agree with this, the second half as a whole was nothing like as good as the first half performance. Still, overall, very impressive I thought.

    Looks like it, I think they omit the results against the 6th team, but that doesn't affect things (merely reduces Denmark's record by 2 wins)

    Really ?

    His Workrate is excellent on the left as his pressing. He links up well and can carry the ball from defence into midfield well too with his pace.

    He is also getting into more and more dangerous positions drifting in now too.


    You want to play Sturridge wide left instead ? Btw, he missed a sitter too but that's besides the point.

    They aren't but Greece are.

    USA saved Mexico this time with 92 and 93rd minute goals ironically enough. One of them coming from a Mexican American.

    Just about scrape through with all sorts of drams to the playoffs vs New Zealand.

    Have to say fair play to Chile and Ecuador. Would've put good money on them playing out the draw that would've guaranteed (boo, hiss) U-r-gay were condemned to the play off.

    As it happens the defeated Ecuadorians pipped the ever hard to love Uruguayans on goal diff anyway.

    They are trying ridiculously hard not to qualify. Be great if New Zealand beat them.

    The first WC I watched as a littl'un was 1970. I was struck then by how tedious Mexico were, and I can honestly say that in all the years that have passed since then I've never been given cause to reconsider that assessment

    I remember them beating Italy in 2002 with Jared Borgetti's miraculous header. Always quite liked them since that.

    They're a bit of an anti-England, in that they're patient and can pass well but do everything else very badly. The Mexico vs. Portugal game in the Simpsons wasn't far from reality.
