Can someone tell me if England is in or not? or do they have more matches to win to get into it.
England are well on there way to qualification, played 5 and won 5.

Dont expect England to do much in South Africa, are players dont usually do well when the weather is super hot.

Argentina losing that big is some news.. but read this before u ask yourself why they lost... here are extenuating circumstances. Bolivia’s national stadium in La Paz stands at 3,600 meters, or 12,000 feet, the highest arena where international soccer is played on earth.

The air is thin, the heat of the afternoon was appreciable, and Bolivia’s extraordinary tempo was sustained for so long that the ill-prepared Argentines were reduced to exhaustion long before the end.

Bolivians are used to play on that kind of height and the advantage is probably the biggest reason of that high result..

I am hoping for all former Yugoslavian teams to make it ..

if not this time then the next qualifications..

Well that absolutely sucked last night- I really didn't think the US would win(we never have in Costa Rico) but I, at least, thought it would be competitive- wrong. The defense was atrocious zero tackling, especially early and we give up a goal in just 79 seconds- unbelievable.

Then another one at the 13 minute mark to basically win the game before 15 minutes has gone by. Totally blows. Now we're in 2nd place in the group and have to beat Honduras here at home because up next in qualifying is a game in Mexico(another place where we've never won). The US is somehow going to have to learn how to win games like this in tough environments if they ever what to take the next step up from a mid-level team.

After the match with Honduras the US is playing in the Confederations Cup in South Africa and our first 2 matches are against Italy and Brazil- so we better get our shit together or those games could get very ugly.

you have to remember though they where playing on a plastic pitch and unless you play regulary on one, 90% of the time your going to lose. Horrible condition to play on im not sure why Fifa allows it.

The confed Cup should be very interesting and cant wait for it.

Yeah that field is like playing on asphalt and I didn't expect to win- just a better and more competitive showing. The defense played like utter crap especially early. Also I was just hoping to watch a better game and 13 minutes in I'm thinking "Great, this game is already over."

Yeah I'm stoked for Confed Cup too.
