Germany vs US tomorrow at noon. I think I'll remain neutral in my predictions.  [unsure]

Very politically correct!  Keep up the good work.

As a proud Wahoo, I was sorely disappointed in the outcome of tonight's CWS championship.  Great team (the best in the nation this year), great coach, great university---but baseball is a particularly cruel game, and Vandy won it tonight.

So do we play for the tie or do we show everyone we are winners and go of the win

I think Germany and USA should just not come back out. They would both advance...

Ummmm. We go for it.

Because of the way that the Ghana vs Portugal game is going, we would need to lose by 5 goals to not advance.

If we go for it and beat Germany, I assume the there will be an impromptu Festool price increase!!  :)
People, I just want to say, you know, can we all get along? Can we get along?

Well, the US almost scored right there at the end. But, Germany won 1-0. At least the US will advance.

Yes the USA will advance and it is quite an accomplishment making the final 16.

It would be nice to let the players on the field decide the game and not the referees.  I'm looking forward to a good game.

Great game today Netherlands vs Mexico.  I don't think Costa Rico will be much of a challenge even though they held off a terrible Greek team today with 10 men for almost 50 minutes.

Good games today. Looking forward to the US game though.
Wonder if Tim is related to the Belgian coach..?  ???

Also go Oranje!

Germany looked sluggish today on attack.  I'm glad they won but, it sure was a cliff hanger [wink]

USA!   USA!   USA!


Oranje!   Oranje!   Oranje!



Oh, OK...  Go France/Allemagne!

I agree with you, Jack. Allemange looked like they were out to lunch during the few plays that I saw early. They seem to almost have a plan of wearing out their opponent and then attacking hard at the end when they sense weakness. It's working so far if that is what they are doing?

Tom,

Perhaps that was their plan but, they continued to play the ball up the middle and try just slant attacks and a few cross attacks.  Finally in overtime they started to take on the fullbacks one on one to create depth behind the defense and then they had some great scoring opportunities.  I love soccer played at this level [big grin]

Jack,

You know the game so much better than I that it's almost silly...

I've only played with others that really didn't know how, but it was still very fun.

I can appreciate how skilled these teams are and how difficult it is...


I'd like to see USA & Oranje in the final.


We'll see, anything kan...

The US and the Netherlands would meet in the semi-final if they win their next games.

Watching the game right now, USA vs Belgium. That right foward Yedlin is on fire, he totally owns his defender and plays impressively. Too bad USA seems to lack people in front who can finish it. I see no goalgetter mentality there. The Belgians seems to have the same lack though they do have the upperhand in general. Keeper Howard is doing a good job and keeping America in the race.  

The commenter said Yedlin is only 20, I tell you, he's going to be big.

Well, as a Belgian Festool fan I have been reading many posts on the FOG for quite some time and I've learned a lot that a I never could have learned anywhere else.
I never thought my first post on the FOG would be about soccer, but here we are.
We, Belgium, our national soccer team, from a country the size of your smallest member-states,  just outflanked, outran and outperformed the USA national soccer team in any way you can think. It was a victory well deserved by our notional team!
Grtz,
Kris
