FIFA WORLD CUP THREAD

Recommended Posts

I am heading to Johannesburg for the FIFA 2010 WORLDCUP :thumb:

 

Just curious to see how many NS members are going ?

 

Our Hotel is in Johannesburg so will be limited to watch games at Soceer City ( Name of the Stadium ) but syykked never the less.

 

Im currently tying to work out the best way to buy tickets , For all you soccer di hards should i book through FIFA.COM/Australian Football Association/ Some Aussy Soccer phenetic club ? If so please list a link so i can look into it

Ok guys the World Cup is only 3 days away and can't stop thinking about it, so made this thread.

11-June 11-July

 

Even though im supporting Australia, im pretty we will make it to the round of 16, but if we do will most possibly face England which without a doubt be a hard game.

How far do you think we'll make it??

 

Im yet to put my bets in, but my money is on Spain, France, Holland and Germany(or Argentina yet to decide) to be in the semis, with Spain my biggest favourites.

I reckon Brazil, England, Portugal and maybe Argentina will be knocked out in the quarterfinal.

Discuss...

 

 

Results:

 

South Africa vs Mexico 1-1

France vs Uruguay 0-0

 

Korea vs Greece 2-0

Argentina vs Nigeria 1-0

England vs USA 1-1

 

Algeria vs Slovenia 0-1

Ghana vs Serbia 1-0

Australia vs Germany 0-4

I'm thinking France this year, I'm pumped as f**k, it's good to see that Australia has finally pulled it's finger out and are getting involved in the world cup the last two times. Hopefully the sport grows more and more here. I was born and lived in England for 10 years and growing up I met a fair few players so I'm backing England and Australia but if they vs each other I don't know who I'll go for, the winning team I guess :P

can someone post the fixtures up on here, it's so much easier just reading it on ns.com haha. What time does it start btw?

What f**ked times! Will they be repeated??

 

All the good games are live... I'm pretty sure SBS will show some replays, and so will Fox Sports.

england have a sweet team hopefully they do well, such a shame to see such great players not work well together which is usually the case for england

argentina also have a sweet team however maradona is very indecisive and could wreck it for them (just look at ther qualification)

Portugal and Spain are my favourites thou, love their style and they have some awesome players

being south african i also hope the team do well however the standard is just too high and the team still lacks strength in many areas

I always pick an underdog that makes it through the round of 16/8... ie. South Korea in 2006.

 

 

This SBS coverage tonight has been shit... So boring, and the journalists are just too annoying. Even Les Murray doesn't seem to have his shit together.
