Italy 1-0 USA
is rolling over in his grave
Own goal. 1-1
PS Andy Gray is dead?
They do bad things, y'know.
so a usa win would be good.
have the USA football team done?
Because ALL Americans are Bush-loving warmongers, obviously.
a real ankle-breaker.
6 aside will be great

Is he for real?
"EQUALISER!" as the score briefly changes to 2-1...
has got rid of football's most enduring mullet
The news-bar at the top of the BBC website, and I only caught the end of the headline, which read:
"...Ronaldo dies at the World Cup".
It was one of those very WTF? moments. They should really phrase things more carefully.
worst commentary ever.
David Pleat, I hate that man and wish a fire on him.
Piece of football I have ever seen by the Italian team.
They dived like they wanted to win the gold fucking medal in backflips and they play-acted the entire match.
The referee was pathetic. That challenge that saw t first US player was in no way a red card. It was a definite yellow. And the second yellow card for the second US player to be sent off- he barely touched him.
And the US goal was onside and that guy didn't interfere with play.
And Italy still couldn't beat them. It was awful.
really wanted them to get a goal at the end. Donavan looked fantastic, like a US version of Aaron Lennon.
Strange how the world cup turns a country like the USA into an underdog figure.
as Craig Charles might have once said
The first US red card was well deserved. The ball was never getting that far, the italian wasn't moving that quickly it was badly timed and could quite easily have broken his leg. To my mind thats as bad as elbowing someone in the face and could quite easily ended a carrer. The second yellow card for the us player was deserved it was a crap tackle from behind however the first one wasn't, and the Mcbride was interferring with play, he had to lift his bloody leg out of the way of the ball, about as active as you can get without touching it. In addition another US player should have been sent off for the challenge on Perrotta just before the disallowed goal that wasn't even given as a foul. After the first sending off the game just became stupid if we're honest and a draw was about the right result, both carving out decent chances but not being able to finish them. TBH I hope neither of them go through. The Czechs play far more attractive football than either despite their ropey defence and Ghana are a good attacking pacey side.
the red cards were deserved.
enjoyed this match, proper nail biting stuff. well done to america, in a way.
It's good it comes down to whether it's the Czechs or the Italians who can pull their act together. Come on Ghana!
the fact that they are at the top of the group tipped me off. Jeez Louise.
But both could also be knocked out.
it isn't mathematically possible that both Czech and Italy get knocked out
