I just think, personally, fans of americans soccer team and portugal are cocky, think-their-better-than-everyone-else attitude. almost everyone ive talked to, agree with me.  maybe because i live outside the US. 

Was that fans comment in relation to Portugal? Because I can tell you most USA fans do not think we're great lol.

Colombia just cruising in their group, Ivory Coast is done.

 

 Suarez with the double Uruguay and England losing again, yikes.

 

Japan had so many chances to score...just couldn't capitalize..

Nah it's not only you. Even Dempsey said that everyone that comes on the field vs America plays with a chip on their shoulder because of what they think of Americans and American football

 

I also find it interesting that you call it soccer, but you hate American "soccer". What's up with that? It's football my persian friend  :laughing:

Soccer
It's soccer

Americans will adopt the metric system, but we stipulate that soccer must be called soccer


Meanwhile...
Spain and England are out!!!
And usa hasn't lost a game yet!!!

Honestly I'm not a huge football fan but at least in my social circle we all joke about how bad Americans are at it haha. But hey so far we're 1-0....hopefully 2-0 after Sunday.

Always tough for European teams to win in South America vs South American teams.

European nations never won a World Cup in South America and South American nations never won it in Europe.

That Messi goal though. Heartbreaking for Iran who almost got away with a 0-0 tie.

Once again I wasn't impressed with Argentina, Iran played very well...shame they lost it so late. smh

 

Germany and Ghana as expected turned out to be a good game.

Nigeria pulled out the win and Bosnia joins the list of teams that won't make the knockout stages.
