The World Championship Soccer has started, a lot of matches are played already and the fans are having parties in Germany! And here, on Gamershood, some people are a fan, including me. But, we might drive others crazy who aren't soccer fans, so I thought: Let's make a new thread. We can discuss the latest played matches and who's on to the next round!

Holland won yesterday form Cote D'Ivoire. And they won from Servia nd Montenegro. So it means they're on to the next round! Wednesday they play against Argentina, it's said that they're a really strong team, so I'm glad they are sure to be in the next round.
Question: In the next round, will they play 1 match nd if they win, they're on to the next round? Or do they have to play against more teams?

Aren't there any soccer fans on Gamershood? I bet there are!!! What if I say: England sucks, now you're gonna respond in this thread???
Well, actually England doesn't suck but nvm.. btw usa did quite bad yesterday! But well, italy is good! How come usa was playing with 9 people in the second halve? That was weird, but i think on this championship there are given a lot of yellow cards!

yeah me too, it was a really bad match :( now we have to play against portugal next sunday... hope we can win!! i don't think so, cuz portugal is really good and even if we can let the score be 0-0 or so, we won't have to count on our penalty's!! holland is really bad at taking penalty's!!

this evening is the big one!!!
I know that TOGO is not a great team (some players are not professional) but I'm really really really scared!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Zidane is now the worst of the best players in the world.I don't know what's happened!
In France we are very pessimistic about this match!
It's a good thing, there are very good teams like Argentina and others.
We'll see....

You mean you did see the match between Holland and Portugal?

Hollandgirl
06-26-2006, 14:30:08
AAArrgh it totally SUCKED last night i think the best thing to do is to play the match again, portugals goal was okay but the scheidsrechter (damn dunno the word in english) really really sucked and holland w?s playing really good but those damn portugese were playing really mean, cuz they kept stopping the game! there were about 20 yellow cards given in 1 match!! that's insane!! and 4 red cards is the most red cards ever given in one match in the world cup... and that schwalbe of figo.. jeeez!

Samuel
06-26-2006, 16:24:52
You mean you did see the match between Holland and Portugal?

yup i watched it, 4 red cards!!! anyways what i said is that i predicted portugal would win but i got the wrong score. oh well 1/2 is good enough for me.

Hollandgirl
06-26-2006, 16:47:40
yeah i thought they were gonna win too, but i also thought holland did have a chance, but with this russian guy.. it was just one big chaos!

Samuel
07-01-2006, 23:40:04
yeah i was a bit disappointed, rooney let em down. but france (my favourite international team) definitely cheered me up. i was actually surprised as i thought brazil would win, but whatever

Hollandgirl
07-02-2006, 11:15:30
yeah me too ;) but france was doing quite good! and for england i've been laughing constantly about that crouch-person (dunno his name very well) he's sooo tall!!! omg he doesn't look like a soccer player at all, but well, guess he's quite good as he's in the national team

Samuel
07-02-2006, 22:01:26
france will win the world cup, now that argentina and brazil are out

dazedncrazed
07-04-2006, 13:51:43
Well just so long as France knock Portugal out, I don't care - They play so dirty!!
They time-wasted there way through both games (Holland's and England's) They don't deserve to be where they are!!
Ronaldo is a cheat!!! and to get his own premiership team-mate sent off says it all!!!! (He even WINKED to the bench after it happened!!) Never thought anyone would play as dirty as Argentina, but Portugal did - They are an embarrasment to the sport!!!
(Oh and Lampard, don't worry - I'll always love you!!) :zhn:

COME ON FRANCE!!!

Hollandgirl
07-04-2006, 16:27:29
dazedncraced i completely agree, but i think Figo plays dirty as well, he did as if boulharouz was pinching him in the eye, but he did not touch him with a finger!
and you're so true about them time-wasting their way trough!! they just do as if they're hurt, they just fall and say: oooh look at THAT i've fallen on the grass, completely on my own...
Come on France, we support you ;) Portugal does NOT deserve it!

Samuel
07-04-2006, 18:45:37
regardless of what ronaldo did, i still believe rooney deserved a red card. anyways i couldnt BELIEVE Figo didnt get sent off after headbutting Van Bommel, oh and dazedncrazed i hate to say it but in my eyes lampard had a horrible world cup, and it will transfer into the premiership season, where Arsenal will overtake them and finish top of the table.
GO GUNNERS GO!

Hollandgirl
07-04-2006, 19:00:23
jup samuel, you're completely right! but it is a really weird championship this time, i think that there are given around 350 yellow cards in only 50 games!! that's insane!! there was this match were the man gave 3 yellow cards and only after the third card decided to send him off :S

Samuel
07-04-2006, 19:06:06
yeah thats pretty funny. i dont know if this is off topic but steven gerrard is the best english player and my favourite english player. definitely not a david beckham or wayne rooney. i think germany will win today 2-1.

dazedncrazed
07-04-2006, 23:23:29
oh well samuel - you were wrong - Italy are through!! 2-0, just like you'll be wrong about Arsenal being ahead of Chelsea in the league!! lol, oh well you can but dream!

Samuel
07-04-2006, 23:33:38
oh well lol, it was a good game though. im a huge arsenal fan and i think its not fair having chelsea in any league, theyve got bottomless pockets! theres no limit to the world class players they can get. i do think chelsea will probably win this season but it would be really nice if they didnt. :)

07-09-2006, 22:04:43
Poor France - It would have been nice to them to win, but the decision against Zidane was correct. I love him sooo much though - he is the symbol of the last 10 years of football, it's such a shame he went out that way!
I think France deserved to win, they played a much better game over th 120 mins, but that's the way it goes sometimes!
Congratulations ITALY

What!!? Now you sound like the most Dutch. :mhmh: :P I knew we would win after beating Italy. :)

And we won too from Romania with 2-0! :D

Now let's see if we can beat Russia as well. Of course I think we will, but I can't be positive for 100 percent. :P

My worst fear that if we win and Italy wins from Spain we have to face Italy again, and they want revenge. :S

So, you are for Italy? :?

JustSean
06-21-2008, 14:16:09
i'm picking Spain for this. If only because they have four "scousers" in their ranks. ;)

was anyone else actually enjoying the Turkey Croatia match as much as I was?

i wasn't really picking sides, but as the second half wore on, i decided on Turkey, and was deflated when Rustu let that silly goal in, only to shout out in delight when they equalised. Great match, best ending to a match so far as well imo.

@Hitman, Ah okay, just wondering. But you are right, they are pretty good. It's just not one of my favourite teams because they aren't good sports.

We lost from Russia with 3-1. :( But we deserve to loose. Russia was much better. Go Russia!!

Perhaps we are general better, but in the last match Russia was definitely the strongest team. We hesitated too much and played too slow. Those Russians were damn fast! :o

Germany lost and Spain is to the finals. :D I would have loved a NLDs-Germany match. It would have been similar as the match versus Brazil, but Spain was my favourite.

I hope The Netherlands win this Sunday, but above all I hope it's going be a great and exciting match to watch with only fair play. :)

07-08-2010, 20:08:58
Hmm, but the Netherlands made it to the finals before. This is the first time for Spain. So there goes your wonder theory. ;)

But those things don't say anything. Spain and the Netherlands have both a good chance to win.

Mairdread
07-08-2010, 20:19:19
Yeah, but even though Holland went to the finals before, but they didn't win. So i think that they are equal to eachother. But I think that Spain has a better defense and attack than Holland. For they can only attack and their keeper is bad with penaltys and corners. So that is a + for Spain. So I wish Holland a lot of good luck, cause I think they need it ;)

raiguma
07-08-2010, 20:40:59
If Holland wants to win they have to score the first goal.

Playoffs have shown that Spain is able to score only 1 goal.

Adventure
07-08-2010, 21:22:47
Lol, all those theories. :haha:

When we played to Brazil, it was Brazil who made the first goal. But we won nevertheless. I think that's the big pluspoint from the NLDs, that they don't give up, also when it doesn't go that well. They keep doing their best until the end and don't loose their spirit.

It think it's going to be a tough game for both of them. Spain is certainly good and has in my eyes an equal chance to win.

Spain won with 0-1 in the last minutes of the extra time.

Personally I think the match was frustrating. Wrong decisons of the referee, too many yellow cards (most of them were deserved), not the game play I expected from Spain as well from the NLDs, and then I was so annoyed by the Dutch player Heitinga. Yet both teams gave the best they could at that time, and Spain was the better team. I of course wish we would have won, but being second of the world is still a great accomplishment. What else can I say then: Well done the Netherlands, and congrats to Spain!! Applaud for them both. :appl:

raiguma
07-16-2010, 12:40:46
About the match, I almost fell asleep in first half because nothing happened. Teams were too equal. About the yellow cards: Netherland always get them many.

Just remember the 2006 world cup. Then Netherland played with Portugal (then I was big portugal fan) and in this game referee gave 16 yellow cards and 4 red cards. Netherland played so unsportly, NO fair play at all. From that game I do not actually like Netherlands football team (no offence adventure).

Just remember the 2006 world cup. Then Netherland played with Portugal (then I was big portugal fan) and in this game referee gave 16 yellow cards and 4 red cards. Netherland played so unsportly, NO fair play at all. From that game I do not actually like Netherlands football team (no offence adventure).

Are you sure you are not confusing Portugal with the Netherlands?
I consider Portugal to be the most unsporty team ever. Always drama about nothing, using all dirty tricks to win. I saw it with the last world cup and this world cup, and not only in that match with the Netherlands.

I agree about Heitinga in the match with Spain. He was playing dirty the whole time, and I was shouting "replace him, replace him!" Also sneijder had his bad moments I was suprised of. But to say the netherlands are just as unsporty or even worse than Portugal, that's something I never can agree with. Unless they prove elsewise in the future..
