2nd so close for England, Gerrard shoots, the keeper blunders it again and somehow can keep hold of it..

Stark - fucking biased piece of shit. But I'm very condfident that England will fuck up sooner or later. More specifically Upson or James.

ESPN showed a graphic that clearly showed Clint Dempsey as even. I see why the linesman called it (Dempsey jumped forward right after the ball was hit), but my god, you have a job to do, make the right call.


I forgot the linesman gets to see that graphic before he makes the call...

Dempsey was even and moving towards the goal when the ball was played, how can you expect the linesman to get that perfect?? It was a 50/50 chance based on how the linesman saw it, this happens almost every game.

Well now USA has another excuse if they get eliminated...they won't remember how Gomez missed a gift right before the disallowed goal or how Jozy missed an open net, but I bet they will remember an inch close offside call forever...watching it live, Dempsey looked at least 3 yards offside to me.

They just showed the graphic again. Onside. MAN ESPN AXIS DOING WORK. They just swiveled the camera to shoe what the linesman saw, he's a step onside. The linesman had the best view in the world. If he doesn't make th correct call, he should be criticized. Even if it was too close to call, he's supposed to side with the attacker, as per FIFA rules.

You want to quote FIFA rules huh...why don't you look at how the ball reached Gomez...Bradley was kicking away at it while lying on the ground. Dangerous play, as per FIFA rules.

Two wrong calls don't make a right.

I bet you're happy that Benny's coming on. :lol:

Ironic, I was just about to post how I felt bad for the US, they earned advancement and then boom....Goal...Nice

Shame for Algeria as they had their chances too but US were the better side and the among the top two for the group, ultimately.

USA is through baby. Had and missed a few chances in this game but they are deservedly going to the knockout round.

Congratulations USA!! :star:

They are qualified for the next round, and this is really impressive. I think they deserved to be qualified, and I wish them good luck in the next round. And I would like to say that Donovan was almost invisible in the second half, but in the latest minutes he scored that crucial goal and he's man of the match. :D

Yeah, definitely deserved...Shame that it takes so long for them to actually get into the match...It'll cost them going forward if they don't play better from the first whistle...Interesting now, in retrospect, how sure both England & the US were of advancement when the draw was announced...They both found it far harder than they imagined much less cared for

I haven't celebrated like that since the comeback against Siena. I honestly think I pulled something in my leg.

Respect to Algeria, must say...They weren't nearly the rubbish/dirty side that advanced past Egypt in the playoff...They went at each side they faced and ultimately were both a bit unlucky and slightly undermanned...I left impressed with them

I can't believe it! USA scored in stoppage time! Fantastic team! I hope they or Brazil win the world cup.
And did you see the last minutes of the pathetic England match? Staying 5 min in the corner... They have learned a thing or two from Roma players I guess...
