It's only good news for England if they can beat T&T and Sweden.

There's a long way to go.

True, especially that the only goal in the match of England came from Paraguay themselves.
However, both teams created great moments.

England took first place in the group. And Sweden barely hold the draw. England does not yet have impressive play, but it is result-driven, which is enough until they meet their first serious competitor.

Have anyone had a chance to catch Portugal - Netherlands game? That was one crazy performance by both teams. 16 cards, 4 of them red - just crazy!

Not to be a stickler for details Art, but the wager was:

I say England will beat Sweden in their group match.
Since England and Sweden drew there is no pay out.
But maybe that's what you meant.
Tell you what. Let's go CAD $5.00 on the England/Portugal game.
England has a good advantage with all of the cards Portugal has.
I'll take Portugal and if England wins I will donate $5.00 to the Canadian Cancer Society. https://secureccs.ca/donations/donat...?div=2&lang=en

If Portugal wins you have to donate $5.00 to a cause of your choice.

True, true, my mistake. But then you also said that Sweden will win the group, and they didn't.

Its gets trickier with Portugal. As much as I love England, and even with some star squad players on the bench, Portugal is a very dangerous team in good shape.They have been defending with man down for nearly 45 minutes, and still showcased their skill, great attacks and defending. With England not playing a convincing game, this is a close one to call.

However, I will take your bet as I believe in the team of my choice.

Done.
May the best team win.
On a side not, the goal by Beckham was won of the best I've seen him score.
Until now I have been thoroughly unimpressed by his performance.

Any Aussies here? I am Italian and I would like to apologize for the shameless theft. The penalty was non existent.

I disagree.
The ball wasn't touched and the Aussie player did trip the Italian.
It's unfortunate it came when it did but the rules are the rules.

Australia had a 40 minute man advantage and they didn't take advantage.

Yes! Italy defeated Germany. It's either Italy vs. France or Portugal. I hope it's Portugal vs. Italy though. That would be a great game!
