  • 2010 FIFA World Cup Discussion

    Maybe a little pre-mature but it's never too early to discuss the most viewed sporting event in the world. There are some heated battles for the last several spots left.

    Playoffs first leg:
    (home team on the left)

    Portugal 1-0 Bosnia
    Ireland 0-1 France
    Greece 0-0 Ukraine
    Russia 2-1 Slovenia

    There were more games, those 4 were the ones I had my eye on.

    Discuss the World Cup here.

      It's gonna be pathetic if Portugal doesn't qualify. I'm gonna be rooting hard for Mexico. Gio Dos Santos and Carlos Vela have been on a rip, so has Guardado and Blanco always plays pretty well. Just hope we get a good draw.

        I'm hoping Portugal doesn't qualify, I'm Bosnian. I know the whole world is rooting for Portugal though. Fifa will not be happy if the best player in the world is not in their world cup.

          I seen that game, it was like 4 am here. I had to keep reminding myself it's live.

            Meh, i like Ronaldo as much as the next guy, but i'd still take Messi over him.

              I'll laugh, Portugal is constantly over-rated. They're like Brazil without the all around stacked roster and understanding of how to play their roles. That said they have great individual talents and if things come together like they did for spain in 2008 they very well could go home with the cup. I'm just not going to bet on that happening.

              I want to see Russia qualify because they were so much fun to watch at the european cup.

              Also going to go ahead and start making premature predictions and say Germany finally finishes a tournament this time around. Even with the recent passing of Robert Enke they're finally strong in net again and have a lot of young talent waiting in the wings on an already good team.

                Screw Christiano Ronaldo. I hope they miss the finals.

                  Well the second leg is in Bosnia, Portugal has the 1-0 advantage however. If you seen the first leg today, Bosnia should have tied the game. They hit the cross bar 3 times, and the post once as well.

                    I watched the Ireland/France game today... pretty pissed Ireland lost. They played really well and had a ton of scoring chances. So I'm assuming they have to win by at least 2 next game to qualify?

                    Pretty weak that the Irish have to play France. Both are top ranked teams, no?

                      By FIFA world rankings:

                      (#10) Portugal 1-0 Bosnia (#42)
                      (#34) Ireland 0-1 France (#9)
                      (#16)Greece 0-0 Ukraine (#22)
                      (#12)Russia 2-1 Slovenia (#49)

                      9. France (won)
                      10. Portugal (won)
                      12. Russia (won)
                      16. Greece

                      22. Ukraine
                      34. Ireland (lost)
                      42. Bosnia (lost)
                      49. Slovenia (lost)

                      FIFA wants the best teams in the world cup, but it's just ********.

                        The draws for the World Cup are always questionable. The draws to get into the Cup are as well.

                          I'm gonna make a prediction and say that it won't come true because a European team has never won it on foreign soil. But there is always a first for everything.

                            you have to think there is something fishy with these drawings. FIFA wants the best teams in the world cup, but it's just ********.
                            I think I read somewhere that FIFA does it based on past reputation. So we basically had no chance in hell of seeing France v Portugal in a match up. They want to have the best revenue possible for South Africa. Quite sad. But if these smaller countries want an equal oppurtunity then they will need to win their groups during qualifications.
