    Great first weekend of World Cup football. Spain v Portugal was an epic game and as mush as I can't stand Ronaldo, he was superb

    My Aussies battled hard against the French, but couldn't create anything up front. Defended and scrambled well for most of the game and fought til the end. My main man - Mile Jedinak (alias - Jedi, Outback Jesus) netted a penalty for us and was his usual stoic self and Mooy and Sainsbury were excellent

    Messi missing that penalty was shocking, he needs to step it up from now to get Argentina progressing. 

    Germany losing is the biggest shock, but Mexico have some talented players, and it shows that anything can happen

    It’s so hard to like Ronaldo, but you can’t deny he’s a great player. Great game!
    Yep, can’t stand him but there aren’t many on his talent level.

    It's very sad that the United States that has the third largest population in the world, can't muster up a dozen people to play some good, quality soccer...

    The odds should be in our favor but, no...

    That's not the point.  A guy gets straight up tackled American football style on a corner and nothing was called.  Even with this VAR nonsense which is supposed to pick up fouls like that.

    You can’t let the official make or break your chances, even if it’s some bogus virtual crap. At this level, you get 3 chances you better convert.

    No shit.  Didn't say anything about this being an excuse for blowing those other 3 chances.  Just pointing out how ridiculous this VAR nonsense is....they have called penalties for far less in the tourney so far but they miss a straight up takedown in the box.

    The announcing team made mention of the tackles and mentioned that the ref was going to let them play through like that.  At least they were consistent?
