World Cup Thread: USA vs. Algeria, 7a

This is it, the final game for the US in Group C play. And it doesn't get any simpler than this: Win, and you're in.

Or, tie vs. Algeria and hope that England loses to Slovenia.

Or, of course, there's the scenario where we tie and Slovenia and England tie but England does not outscore USA by 2+ goals. Okay, so maybe it's not that simple. Just win the damn game, US. Make like a Dad with some cojones on Father's Day, and stop settling for these ridiculous ties.

GO USA!

I want good, solid wins from both USA and ENG so they can both advance and look good coming out of the group.

I love telecommuting.

Kyle Baker said...

Come on, ENG! We can't lose to these Charlie Brown lookin' fools!

Kyle Baker said...

Algeria have been attacking early. I'll bet US defenders and keepers need to change their undies at half.

Listening on ESPN Radio. Tommy Smyth makes not being able to see it an OK thing

Kyle Baker said...

I cannot fathom why Joey COle can't get a match. Why have him on the squad? He's the most creative ENG player and he hasn't had a sniff yet.

Kyle Baker said...

Tommy Smyth is love him or hate him. Most hate him. I don't mind him.

Kyle Baker said...

US came close but was offsides.

Kyle Baker said...

Defoe!!!!!!!

Kyle Baker said...

FUCK YEAH!

God damn I hate not having pints while watching.

Kyle Baker said...

US needs to spend less time whining about disallowed goals and just stick some more in. Dempsey is still whining like my sister - just get stuck in and play, lad!

Kyle Baker said...

Come on, Frankie, keep the fucking ball down on the pitch! You know it flies.

Kyle Baker said...

What's with the negative ENG tweet, Karina? Dang! Lay off us.

MR.F said...

Come on USA.

Steve Sax said...

England up 1-0, US still tied. We need to win!

Kyle Baker said...

Another one coming up for ENG...I can feel it.

Kyle Baker said...

ENG crowd willing the lads to get another one. How does Rooney keep missing? It's like Ethier continuing to hit the ball well right into the CF's glove at the warning track.

I can't imagine that either of these scores will hold. Someone will have to take a big risk, and be rewarded or punished for it accordingly.

Kyle Baker said...

Joey Cole on for Rooney.

"Someone will have to take a big risk, and be rewarded or punished for it accordingly."

This is also the way my workday will go.

Win USA! this team have been better than the scores, played better than some usual favorites, cmon!

Steve Sax said...

73 minutes, no score.

The tension is cool and all, but I feel like I'm watching the Dodgers' offense in interleague play.

Kyle Baker said...

Hold the ball, ENG! Almost there!

Kyle Baker said...

ENG are through!!!!!!!!!! Hell fuckin' yeah!

And let me say: I;'ll take it.

Kyle Baker said...

USA scored.

Dammit. More part-time soccer fans will stick around.

Nostradamus said...

YES!

MR.F said...

Wow.

MR.F said...

Hey, don't hate on us part-time soccer fans.

Kyle Baker said...

I love you, Mr F.

But I hate part-timers.

Dodgerbobble said...

I was screaming like a mad man on that goal.

My neighbors must think I'm crazy.

Fred's Brim said...

unbelievable!

Steve Sax said...

Wow, I am in love with Landon Donovan

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

THE U.S. WINS!!! UNBELIEVABLE!! DONAVAN!!!

Steve Sax said...

landon donovan now has more goals scored than the entire dodger team did on national television sunday

Eric Karros said...

That was awesome. Back to work now...

Nostradamus said...

@KB

At least they'll be in the other bracket. Not so much bumbling around the ENG matches.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Not only did US win, but I think Twitter broke.
