The frustrating aspect is how they played throughout until they were down 2-0 in the final 15-plus. Part of it was due to style and Belgium. You don't sit back and win in any sport. I felt like I was reliving the nightmare versus the Kings except Howard replaced Lundqvist on a futbol field. Then the 19-year old kid scores an awesome goal and they came so close on that set piece. They should've tied it. How crazy. That was an awesome game. A shame that the FIFA officials had to ruin the ending by giving us 1 freaking minute of bonus. Garbage.
Funny you should say that...I was listening on the radio for part of the game and the fun Irish dude (Tommy Smyth) was doing the game on the radio and he actually made that comparison, in his accent saying 'Dis looks like Henrik Lundqvist in da Stanley Cup Finals'. Which was really funny since I didn't think Tommy Smyth knew a hockey puck from a tennis ball
Crap, I wanted Argentina to go out. So far all the "Top" teams struggled in the round of 16 , but made it through. Lets hope the US can be the one team to knock out a group winner.
I forgot about that...strange that in a World Cup with obvious parity there wasn't an 'upset' of a group winner losing.
Honestly Argentina really HAS been a one-man team...and Messi's scoring has been remarkably well-timed. I think their luck may run out against Belgium though. It would be kinda cool to see Belgium-Holland in the semis considering that rivalry. Holland-Argentina is definitely a good soccer rivalry too.
Watch Costa Rica spoil either 'dream' matchup though lol
