    Honduras defeated Canada's much heralded multi-ethnic team 8-1 so we know they can score.:tongue:

    Why no yellow card for Evra for that foul?

    Edit: Forget it. He received one.

    I've seen red cards given for what Pogba just did.

    Well,it wasn't a tap-in.
    12 yards is more than his average goal distance I'm sure.:lol:

    honduras are worse than lithuania , luxembourg or the faroe islands
    i'm not even exagerating
    luxembourg was more dangerous than them when they played against france

    On American TV the British commentator said some French player (I don't know who) was rejected as a youth player by the French system so he went to Spain where he rose through the ranks at Real Sociedad. I immediately thought to myself "he must be white".

    I just saw the starting 11s for Argentina and Bosnia-Herzegovina. I see 11 whites for Bosnia and maybe 5 for Argentina? The rest seem to be mestizos/mystery-meats or whites with a really good tan? Can someone clarify because strictly from an eye test perspective, the Bosnians are the ones to root for. Or do we not consider them white because they are Muslim?

    we must root for argentina because they are the only ones who can prevent a disgusting team like brazil from winning the world cup
    argentina's goalkeeper is paraguayan i think, so mixed
    their fullback rojo too i think
    the rest is white (borderline white sometimes because south european)

    I'm pretty sure we consider Bosnians white, even though they are Muslims. Even if they lose tonight, they should still advance with Argentina.
