    I thinks Klingsman is just messin' with the opponent. Those Germans are crazy sneaky like that.

    Not according to the brits. This is how the tabloids look like before playing the Fritz.

    Good strategy if your goal is to finish in 2nd place....

    Christiano Ronaldo is the Carmelo Anthony of soccer.

    I meant he's all offense, and completely disinterested in defense even though he should be capable.

    That and also they're both cut from the same primadonna material IMO.

    But Ronaldo postion is not a defensive one. He is an attacker. Not all the attackers have to come down to defend. Look at Argentina with Messi.. he just wander around the middle until the team gets the ball back...

    USA fight it till the end! Congratulations! Howard keeps proving himself as one of the best Goalkeepers of the world.

    Now Belgium vs Argentina saturday. Man, you all should see my country when the soccer team is playing. It's like a walking dead episode or any zombie movie... nobody on the streets! It's Crazy!!

    I think Argentina will win this match. (I Love Belgium but they are a few years away of being a major threat. Maybe in 2018...
    What would be nice to watch is if Argentine defenders can hold on Belgium attackers. So far Argentina haven't face any good ofensive players. No disrispect to Switzerland, Bosnia, Iran or Nigeria, but they were kind of weak offensively.

    So, It would be nice to see what can they do against Origi, Lukaku, Mertens, Mirallas, Hazard and Fellaini.

    Argentina will have their hands full with Lukaku and Hazard. I think they are the favorites to win, but they gotta score early. If the game is scoreless around 60-65th minute, it's anybody's game. I really hope they get past the Belgians. I'm hoping for an Argentina-Brazil final. That would be epic.

    Bad game by Begium! I'm somehow dissapointed. I thought that they will arrive with more clear attacks against Argentina, but they didn't. Nigeria and Switzerland had better shots than Belgium. Props to Argentine Team.

    But next rival, Neatherlands, will be a true menace.

    Argentina didn't reach the semifinals (Final fours) since 1990. It's kind of a big deal here.

    In the other key, Brazil vs Germany. But Neymar's injury will keep him out of this game (And out of football for a couple of months). I think Germany has a big advantage. They are impressive!!

    Thomas Muller (German) has 24 years and 9 goals in all the world cups already!!! Impressive! He is in a good path to become all time leading scorer.
    That title belonged to "Ronaldo" (Not Cristiano, but the Brazilian Ronaldo, one of my favourite players of all time, impressive player) But this year, Miroslav Klose (another German) reach his mark. So, they are tied with 15 goals

    Ronaldo (retired) did it in 19 games played
    Klose is 36 years old right now, so this is probably his last world cup. And he has 15 goals in 22 games. Still 2 more to go (Because even If Germany lose against brazil, they'll have to play for the 3rd and 4th spot). So He has a pretty good chance to score, maybe, one more goal.

    Anyway, I think nobody EVER would argue about who is better. Ronaldo is the answer. Klose is a great player, but Ronaldo reached more things than Klose and it's a more complete offensive player.

    But the thing is.. Muller has 9 goals, 24 years old, and 11 matches played. That's.. wow! I think that, if he doesn't suffer any injuries, he will play in 2018 and 2022. So he will have plenty of more oportunities to score more goals. Great future!

    But, Brazil have in their favor that they are home. And in Football (Soccer) that is an important fact. Wow.. What a game that will be! Only 4 more games and Goodbye until 2018.

    I can't wait until the Germany-Brazil game. Brazilians have their backs against the wall missing Neymar and Silva (double yellows), but they are playing with some great intensity! Germans are very impressive, but they don't seem to be as solid defensively as they traditionally have been. It will be a lot of fun to watch.

    Netherlands-Argentina game is going to be interesting. Which one will deliver? Messi or Robben?
