    Indeed, it's 5:37am and I'm up waiting for kick off. The whole of England is off work to watch in the pubs etc

    Brazil have shown muchos arrogance, can't help feeling we're doomed to fail though, this unbeaten run has to end sometime.

    2-1 to Brazil with 15 minutes to go
    Ronaldinho sent off harshly.

    England play too deep, they don't take advantage of players like Keiron Dyer through their negativity.

    Let the beatings begin...

    I'm really not into soccer - but is the US team actually good? (I would ask about my Canadian team.. but in Canada - well.. we don't have a team, cause Hockey reigns supreme )

    I'm expecting Germany to win in the final... dunno why, Brazil just aren't that good, they won by a lucky goal today and presumably will be missing Ronaldinho.

    USA aren't very good but did well this tournament reaching the qf's. Canada didn't qualify.

    All I have to say is Germany is lucky they had Kahn in goal.

    It is to bad the US media could care less about the World Cup and soccer. The only way they would start caring is if they could play commercials every 5 minutes.

    Oh Well...I guess I will have to cheer for South Korea now since they helped us out.

    We got the World Series and the Superbowl, that's all that's interesting anyway .
