    US midfielder Bradley couldn't handle a pass cleanly the entire second half, and his challenges were very late as well. I think he finally broke down from exhaustion after that second game in jungle.

    The US goes through, but looked horrible against the Germans.
    The German D was indomitable. Still, Belgium is not a bad matchup.

    Road for the US would be Belgium and then Argentina/Switzerland.

    I'm not, but that's because Sturridge turned me into a Liverpool fan back in November/December.

    Stop biting people already you crazy idiot!

    Btw, I'm glad Suarez got the hammer - 9 international games, 4 month ban from ANY football (including training), and $100,000+ fine.

    A bit scared to face the Belgians (who is likely the team we will play).

    Meh - you had few years ago Defoe biting a player while playing for Spurs, and guess what "FA decided not to punish the player" ... all in all double standards.

    Proper Suarez bite was against Ivanovic, this in the world cup - barely anything and the Italians are bound to make the most of it, the usual Italian drama. He should have kept his mouth shut while trying to headbutt the other guy .

    Dude, this is complete bullshit. He bit another person for crying out loud. For the THIRD DAMN TIME!

    TF was the substitutions - allegedly to open up more to attack and score, which resulted in a quick 3-0 to Mexico.

    Mexico deserves to go through though, we should have done a lot better, but - meh, combined with the ref from the first game, there would be no need for changing the team in the last and so it goes.

    In any case - congrats Greece, at least someone from here made it out of the group.

    So... there is more a chance of professional soccer player to get bit by Suarez than to get bit by a shark..

    betting site Betsafe decided to have some fun before the World Cup by creating a prop bet that involved another chomp from Suarez. The prop bet went off at 174/1, according to a site spokesman, and Swedish soccer fan Mats Johansson decided to throw 10 kronor ($1.83 USD) down and hope the madman went mad.
    HA!
