This had been one of the most interesting world cups in many a year. Chile have impressed me most outside Germany. Chile play as a proper team.

England's game tonight is must win. They have the tools to do it, I expect a better display from the back 4.

If i may say that... I do. since the group was made few months ago.

We do a contest here at work.. and i had exactly that happening ... Spain was weak this year... with very tired players.. mentally & physically... 

I always say that Chile was a team full of beast.. kamikaze beast.. but beast nonetheless...

I agree, aside from the Nigeria Iran game, it has been a very entertaining tournament so far. If Uruguay plays the way they did against Costa Rica, England should not have too many problems today.

Suarez is supposed to play for Uruguay, that could make a huge difference. 

 

All I know is that my boss, who's from Liverpool, is giving us license to leave at 3 to accompany him to the local pub for the game.  If he keeps this up, I hope England advances, because I could use some more of these "team-building exercises".

It has definitely been more exciting, the stats seem to show that teams are playing more offensive, through 20 games there have been 60 goals in 2014, only 38 in 2010, that a huge difference.

 

Spain shocked me, I did not expect them to win, but really thought they would advance, Puyol abscence was huge, and Costa did not step up as they needed. 

 

Cannot wait for todays games...

Well England literally need a miracle to get through. Italy need to win both games and put quite a few goals past both teams. Then England need to beat Costa Rica so significantly that they can convert a -2 goal difference into +.

So basically we are out.

It's going to be a long spell of failing to qualify or challenge for England coming up. There is a huge generational talent gap and very few players have the potential to fill it. We lack any world class players and I include Wayne Rooney in that as well.

Once England are officially out I will be hoping the Dutch can go all the way. Most exciting team so far and I have had a soft spot for them since my nan purchased me a Ruud Gullit shirt when I was 4.

I really thought England had a decent side after watching them play against Italy. I guess there is a reason I don't make my money in the football business. I know it hurts when your team loses the first 2 games, but don't disgrace yourself by rooting for the dutch, that would be like rooting for the rangers :P

I was more optimistic after that Italy game. But the defending was poor and the team didn't do their homework. They had no game plan for Pirlo and no game plan for Suarez.

Rooting for Germany would be like rooting for the rangers. I am a big fan of Andre Schurrle though.

Who had Costa Rica coming out as first in this group? Italy - Uruguay should be a great game for the last spot

Are European teams not able to hold up in the warmer climate?  Costa Rica was a shocker.

It sure looks like it. All the "big" wins from the European sides were against other European sides
