    i don't know about you, but in france people are mad about the african country losing to greece, an all-white team that everybody expected to lose
    and there are a lot of ivorian immigrants in france

    people are claiming the referee wrongfully gave a penalty to greece
    what a joke
    here you can clearly see that the foul is obvious and the penalty was undisputable:

    but here is an example of an edited version of the video showing only after the greek player was fouled, to make it look like there was no foul:

    That's disgraceful; I hope he's done as well. He didn't do anything for them this WC. So much for "Super Mario." Also, Prandelli resigned today too: http://www.espnfc.com/league-name/story/1909296/headline

    That'd be great if Russia could join Argentina, Greece, Uruguay, and Germany (Holland to a bit lesser degree, I suppose, with their white star power in Robben and Van Persie, etc.) as CF teams to root for in the Round of 16. As long as Brazil or France don't win.

    I hope I don't come off as rude, but I'm concerned with the way people on this forum are classifying people as "white"

    Ochoa is clearly a Mestizo. He has white skin, but skin is not the only thing that makes someone white, at least not in my opinion and the general public as well.

    The classifying of Uruguay as a white team concerns me as well. I haven't been able to catch a full match yet but from what I have seen and heard about the team they seem to be a fairly diverse squad. Their best player, Suarez is not only mestizo but has a black grandfather as well!

    Also I'm still not convinced Dempsey is white. After watching a few interviews with him he seems to have mexican blood in him. To make matters worse, Dempsey was born in a heavily mexican area. Until someone proves me otherwise, he is part mexican to me.

    I forgot to mention that Portugal's Eder should be given credit for dispossessing Michael Bradley of the ball in the final moments of the USA-Portugal game. He also made a terrific shot on goal, which was parried through Tim Howard's quick reflexes. Greece got lucky with a last minute penalty kick. And, how can Balotelli be blamed for Italy's loss? He was subbed at halftime. Was it his fault that Immobile, Cassano or any of the other players couldn't score a goal? Is it his fault that Marchiso got red carded?

    I did not think it was penalty after seeing one replay. After seeing the second replay from a different angle it is clear his leg was clipped from behind.

    Even without Suarez I still think Uruguay has a better chance against Brazil in the QF than Columbia. I'm guessing here as the only match I've seen Columbia play was against Greece and I thought the score flattered the Columbians. Given that Greece were mediocre in all of their matches that makes me think Columbia might be overrated due to winning in a weak group. They lost their first knock out stage match at Copa America to Peru after winning their group. Their squad has no experience playing at this level.

    Uruguay aren't that good either but they did beat England and Italy, who despite not being great sides are still big names in world football. This experienced Uruguayan team has most of the players who also won the Copa America, including defeating Argentina in penalties in Argentina itself, and getting to the World Cup semi-finals in 2010. So even though they are past their prime I think they are the only South Americans (other than Argentina) who won't be intimidated by the all-powerful Brazil image/reputation.

    :icon_rolleyes:

    If Ivory Coast had won with a last minute penalty kick, you would be praising it as ZOMG TEH MOST AMAZING GOAL EVAH!!!!!11eleventyone, and we all know it.

    We have repeatedly criticized white players and teams when they genuinely deserved it, because we are men (and women) here.

    Getting back to focusing on soccer, as it should be:

    Tomorrow's matches:

    Nigeria v. Argentina: Argentina, obviously.

    Honduras v. Switzerland: Switzerland, I guess.

    Bosnia v. Iran: Two... No. Per the administrator's request not to talk about that topic outside of Happy Hour, I'll just say I have no dog in that fight.

    Ecuador v. France: France's team is so anti-white I wouldn't mind seeing Ecuador win. I'd rather see a non-white team from a non-white country than a non-white team from a white country.

    The media acted as if the Italian team was a one man Balotelli show, why shouldn't he take blame?

    eder was TERRIBLE in that game
    his miss in front of howard was costly

    portugal should have called nelson oliveira instead of him

    as foorbar75 noted before the greek got their penalty, they could have won 3-1
    they hit the post 3 times
    they totally dominated
    ivory coast did nothing dangerous
    very deserved win, only anti-white people will say otherwise, or people that hate greece for doing better than the team they root for

    the italian coach said after the uruguay match that he was to blame for taking balotelli in the team
    he said that what made italy exit the competition wasn't this game, but the one against costa rica, when balotelli missed some big chances
    after the game against costa rica, he already said that they lost the game because balotelli failed to score
    then in the uruguay game, the coach had to replace him at half time because he was so bad and was going to be red carded at any momment

    balotelli is 100% responsible for italy's exit, everyone knows it and admit it, even his coach

    prandelli took a gamble on balotelli
    he took him on the team and made him the main striker of the team while everything showed that rossi, immobile, cerci, destro etc deserved to play more than him, and on top of that balotelli could get red carded at any momment, everybody knew that

    prandelli admitted that he failed, because balotelli wasn't good at all at the world cup, and put italy in danger of finishing a game with ten men (remember that before the world cup he said that he wouldn't take any violent players to the world cup because he didn't want to end up with ten men - osvaldo was cast out because of that - but he kept balotelli regardless)

    so prandelli admitted it, gambling on balotelli was wrong, it has failed
    and like he said it's the reason why italy failed at the world cup

    i will put a more detailed post with quotes etc in the mario balotelli thread at the end of the world cup, don't worry :kiss:

    greece's portuguese coach silencing people who say greece can only defend:

    http://www1.skysports.com/football/...ce-coach-fernando-santos-shrugs-off-criticism

    sure they defend well, and what is wrong with that?
    soon they will force every team to have a black defender at least, to make the world cup look exactly like the english premier league

    but greece can also attack, pass the ball pretty well
    they have proved this many times
    remember that they didn't score against japan because they were reduced to 10 men early in the game

    africa on the other hand has some of the most boring teams at the world cup
    except ghana, the other african teams have produced nothing offensively

    The most surprising aspect of Greece’s electrifying, ridiculously-late victory was how well the black players on the Ivory Coast handled the loss after the penalty kick was awarded and the ball struck the back of the net. They seem like the only African national team that has some class on the pitch and I'll give them credit, as most Negroes would have...well, you know. Look at their docile reactions, starting at 0:44 seconds from when the penalty was called…

    [video=youtube;A-w03JQb0nc]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A-w03JQb0nc [/video]

    Greece is a team of aging players that haven’t looked good, even in a relatively easy group. Over the past 6-8 years, they usually sport some of the best team defense in the world, but even that facet of their game seems to be slipping in this tournament. They can’t score, they struggle to possess to ball with any kind of consistency, and they’re terrible on set-pieces. Nevertheless, there is something about this team that I really like. They have nice speed, athleticism, endurance, and they have a stunning “never say die” attitude. Let’s hope this squad, which starts 10 whites and 1 Mestizo, can somehow, someway, get past Costa Rica. They’re best hope is probably a draw, extra time, and winning in a shoot-out. But with this team, you never know.

    The thoroughly-vile “Group E” will be decided later today…unfortunately, it doesn’t seem as though France can realistically be eliminated, unless Switzerland destroys Honduras and Ecuador destroys France. The most likely scenario is that Switzerland (who has white players, but few actual Swiss players) can beat Honduras and move through. It won't break my heart if they don't, however.

    In “Group F,” let’s hope that Nigeria is eliminated by a loss to Argentina and Iran defeats Bosnia…which unfortunately needs to occur to eliminate Nigeria.

    Tomorrow, in “Group H,” it’s pretty simple for Russia. Win against Algeria and they’ll likely play the winner of the Germany-U.S. on 6/30. The Russian team has been very disappointing, but hopefully they can pull it together and defeat this team of repugnant mystery meats…

    [​IMG]

    When the World Cup Finals first began, Michael Ballack stated on ESPN that: “No African side will get past the group stage into the round of 16.” Cameroon was a putrid 0-3, Ghana needs a miracle to advance in Group G, Greece’s thrilling victory eliminated the Ivory Coast, and now only Nigeria (who should get throttled by Argentina today) and Algeria (who will hopefully be eliminated by Russia tomorrow) are still realistically alive.
