Italy - USA

Recommended Posts

Really hope USA take this. 3p to every team in taht group before the last roud would be ace. They've opened well and looks well fired up. Italy actually looks a bit caught by their opening, hope they get a goal before the match evens out.

This reminds me about that GNR-song, Estrange, when he sings "talking to my self, and nobody's home". Some cracking guitar play in that song by the way.

Just remembered when I saw that; McBride has steel plates on both sides of his face after previously breaking them. Read in before U-S-A!'s first game.

That own goal was Djimiesque in its brilliance, and no more than USA have deserved.

 

De Rossi should be looking at a 6-game ban for that elbow, he ought not play any further part in this tournament. Great spot by the ref.

Perhaps Di Rossi has surgically implanted magnets in his elbows from a previous operation to cure his wandering hands?

I thought that was harsh when I first saw it, but on seeing the replay... well, I've seen them walk for less. Could have broken his ankle quite easily.

 

I thought the same; nothing of it in real time but nasty on the replay.

 

Toni and Gilardinho will get one of those centre-backs sent-off before the night is out, you can put money on that. Despite almost removing their shirts in every challenge they are diving around at the feintest touch to get them bookings.

he could've been booked 3or 4 times prior to that as well

I agree on that last red card too after watching the re-plays, but it's not normal practice to give red card for those tackles in football today, so in that perspective you can argue it was harsh. It's kind of sad really, that you normally don't get a red card for a tackle like that, but at the same time Ujfalusi (was it him?) gets a red and a pen against for touching that Ghaneesianeserian(sp?)'s foot. It just doesn't make sence.

    • The outstanding start by Diogo Jota to his Liverpool career has been acknowledged with Michael Owen saying that the Portuguese star has been the best signing of the new Premier League season.   While Thiago was seen as the prize capture by the Reds during the Summer transfer window, it has been the 23 year-old former Wolves man who has made a seamless transition scoring nine goals in just 15 appearances in all competitions.   The quality performances of Jota have been worth their weight in gold when you consider the  amount of absentees Klopp has had to deal with through injury.   His rapid progress has caused Jurgen Klopp to shake up his front three with Roberto Firmino the man to miss out on a few occasions, a proposition that seemed highly unlikely just a few months ago.   That added depth to the front line has been seen by many as the final piece to the puzzle in Liverpool being the ultimate all-round team.   The performances of Jota have been worth their weight in gold when you consider the   amount of absentees Klopp has had to deal with.   Speaking on BT (via Metro) the former Reds striker said that consistent form of the forward has been a pleasant surprise.   “No one could’ve predicted that he would hit the ground running like he has.   “He’s surprised me with his pace, I must admit. I think he’s far quicker than I gave him credit for.    "Against Atalanta he was electric.   ‘He just shows composure, a lot of people panic, they just get a shot off as soon as they get any form of space. ‘I just think he’s scored headers, right foot, left foot, he’s scored everything so far and he’s looked the real deal in terms of linking play.   “Nobody could have envisaged the quality that he’s shown so far.”     Fellow former Liverpool striker Peter Crouch added that the ability of Jota to adapt his game has been clearly evident.   “Klopp’s obviously seen something in him, putting him more central or along the three of the strikers that they have. ‘He looks like a poacher.    “He’s getting goals in the six-yard box, he’s got headers, he’s got all types of goals.    “He’s a top, top signing."
