    I've avoided opening this thread for the past 2 weeks because I've been watching the Womens World Cup after work that I've recorded(games come on between 3:45 and 6 something am here and I have work). Just incase one of you guys came in here to talk about the more important World Cup :)

    US won its group and their quarterfinal game vs England.
    Germany beat North Korea in the other quarterfinal game.
    Brazil and Sweden play tomorrow and Norway and someone else.

    US Women should win the whole thing if they play like they did 2nd half of the England game. Germany is the defending champs, defending champs have never made it to the final game of the next WC.

    There's only a few hours to go until Aus Vs Fiji.
    I'm staying up for it. Should be a cracker ........

    Although Aus should power to victory, I will be hoping Fiji can test them :D

    For the Welsh supporters out there: If Fiji beat Wales, Fiji goes through!

    If America weren`t winning in the women`s soccer,
    it would never get a mention anywhere in America. ;)

    It just gets better - Argentina slaughtered Ireland in a game just as good if not better than Fiji/Wales.
    The last 8 is going to be really interesting and I would not be surprised if there were a few more shocks in store.

    Yeah, has been surprising especially Ireland, they have been playing pretty awefully during this World Cup.

    Finchy, how can you say that? It is just the most beautiful game!
    Anyway, with NZ, Oz and SA out we have an interesting last few games to come and I think most Brits secretly hope that Argentina will do well - the Irish, Scots and Welsh all want them to beat England should they meet.

    I will admit, it is a proper sport, but im not a fan. I just find i tedious, i don't know why.

    It's not like American Football, which is the same but with armour
    Or hockey, which is just pure violence

    By the way, i'm aware i know virtually nothing about those sports, and may be wrong, it's just my opinion.

    There in with a good shot now of winning, but i don't think they will. :haha:

    It seems to me,all England`s points come from the boot of one person.

    Isn`t Rugby about running and passing and putting the ball over the line ?

    Yes, but if your scoring the points it does not matter. :)

    Were in the semi-finals, so thats a good achievement. :):)

    The way South Africa has been playing I wouldn't be surprised if they lose against Argentina. That being said if they pull their act together I am quite confident that they could go all the way.

    It's France's for the taking now ...
    My money would be on them if I was a betting man
