I didn't get to watch the game but check in a few times. From the sounds of the announcers England dominated the game and missed a lot of chances to really blow the game open.

The USA game was great. So many chances but misses. Scored a goal but was taken away from a bad offside call. Really deserve to win but looked like it was going to be 0-0 and over.

Then in stoppage time USA got a last run and Donovan puts it in on a putback.

USA should be proud of that program since 94 they have set a standard that anything less than knockout stages is accepted.

Do you know who the probable matchup is for USA in the knockout stages?

They will now play the Group D runner up which will be either Germany, Ghana, or Serbia most likely. Will find out later tonight.

Germany plays Ghana and Serbia plays Australia. Ghana goes in with 4points, Germany 3points, and Serbia 3points. Tough to say who they will probably face. A lot of people are picking Germany and Serbia to win tonight and if that happens then USA will face Serbia.

Gurk the other shows up on CBC Bold and they schedule it so the games can't be fixed or the teams don't know so they play hard.

I think its so teams who are at the top of the group dont rest their players which would allow the team they are facing a good shot to win. This is to make it fair for other teams who have played the top team and the knowing the outcome of the other game may allow the top team to rest their players. Its to make it fair for all the teams in the group im pretty sure. the other game comes on on CBC right after.

This USA team is an example to the soccer world, not many trully good players, but just a great team/group and coach with the right mentality.

It will be interesting. I think Serbia vs USA the states have a decent shot but really watched like less than half of the world cup

FINALLY England looked like a good squad... although I expected more than 1 goal.

I'm crapping my pants though since it looks like it's going to be England/Germany in the first knockout game....

COME ON GHANA!!!


Donovan was clutch for the USA.... and I really like Dempsey. He's a nice player.

Ozil wasted a chance. Ghana also had chances and Lahm stopped a header off a corner from going in.

Germany wins 1-0 over Ghana. Serbia can't take advantage and loses to Australia 2-1.

With that - Germany will take on England and United State gets Ghana.

Today was a great day..

We'll face Ghana on Saturday 2:30PM..

If we win we'll play the winner of Uruguay-S Korea game in quarter finals..

I think USA has a real chance for Semi Finals..

I really want USA to be successfull in this tournement for the sake of the game in North America..

Ze GErmans!!!! Ozil with a brilliant goal. Both teams wasted plenty of chances but both were lucky as they advance to the round of 16. Very unfortunate for Australia though, I really wanted to see them qualify to the next round and they lost on GD b/c Germany spanked them 4-0 the 1st game.

USA and Uruguay have a good shot at making it to the semis. I hope urugauy beat the US though.
Germany vs England and Argentina vs Mexico. The winner of those 2 matches will face each other in the quarter finals. 3 "contenders playing in that bracket of the tourney makes it really scary. If spain advance but dont place 1st in their group, we can see them face brazil in the round of 16.
