Yes France is out - with dishonor.

Rather a pathetic followup to the infamous 'headbutt' from the championship game in World Cup 2006.

Sportsmanship is not their strong suit!

England bloody well better get their scoring game on today. They are in serious danger of being eliminated without a win a high score!

England are through with their 1-0 defeat of Slovenia, and so are USA with their 1-0 defeat of Algeria.

How can both England and USA both advance? Only one can advance.

Two teams advance from each group.

My mistake. I thought Slovenia retained their group lead while the US and England were fighting for the 2nd slot. I didn't realize that they both passed Slovenia in the standings of Group C with wins today.

I didn't think the German win was very convincing. They pretty much stopped paying attention after the score, and gave the ball to Ghana to play til the end. With many bad passes you didn't see in the earlier game. Nevertheless, people are pretty excited here in Deutchland.

French defeated and England and Germany are fighting against each other... I seem to have heard of this story sometime before....
I want to see the headlines on Bild Zeitung and the Sun that day.

I'll put my money on the Brit tabloids. They are the world champion newspaper headline writers!

They don't even know the meaning of the expression "over the top"!!!

Yeah, it's gonna be comedy gold.

Bild Zeitung is like a twin of Sun though, they even have the exact same type of page 3 girl, everyday. Except that the German lost last time, so probabily not much to boast about and better avoid the subject. However, I can see the Sun exploiting it like a gang of Japanese middle aged businessmen touring Bankok, going down on a 12yr virgin Thai hooka.....
