Settled.

Well, even though I'm roughly $2m tokens poorer today, I have to say, that was a thoroughly enjoyable match! It's because of performances like those that we call this the "Beautiful Game". Captain, you have to have loved that one!

ZZ was like his younger self today- the wizard!

Anyhow, great game...I'm off to TTP Bankruptsy Court. :D

I needed France to win for my pool but that fake facial injury by Thierry Henry was brutal. Led to a goal.

What is even worse is that dork Dick Howard disagreeing with Craig Forrest who basically said what I am saying. Get rid of that moron and let's just hear from CF.

Henry embellished, but that was still a foul. Ref made the right call there (not sure if a card was shown, though...not cardable, IMO).

The Henry "foul" had some contact on his shoulder, and he goes down like Sylvia Saint clutching at his face. He's a fcuking cheater, just like Rivaldo.

u r prolly right keeps, I was really expecting a lot more from this WC.....not just another japan/korea, but here we are, this shiat better stop, these guys are pros for crying out loud....on the other i am starting to get a brand new appreciation for the refs in our league, i mean c'mon if fifa refs can't get it right w/ all the training and technology that is available, why shouldn't a 60+ ref miss a few calls in div 2

There was no foul on the play. Puyol established position first.....LEGALLY and the ****ing diving **** Henry decided to make a meal of it. I'm he's laughing over it now(Henry) because he knows he made a mockery of the game just like many of the players have this World Cup. ****ing disgraceful

No doubt he made a meal out of it.

What I saw, the defender (Puyol, I guess) did establish position, but then pushed Henry away using the upper arm / elbow jab...that hit him in the chest. That's where the foul occured.

I'll watch it a little closer tonight...only saw the first replay.

Agree though, Henry oversold.

It was a foul.

not one team in the world cup hasen't dove yet. everyone is diving that's what the world cup has come down to...who can sell the best dive.

Keeper; the germans have been fish out water all world cup, flopping around every chance they get...

France and Portugal in the semi's!!!

i was going to say that the germans are flopping the least, i don't think i can actually say i've seen them do it. perhaps its been overshadowed by the rest
