I'm not sure if I want to be rooting for the NL, or get another dose of schadenfraude like 2 years ago when when we lost 3 matches in a row of awesome stupid. Probably the latter, unless we unexpectedly do well. Hypocrite ftw.

Also on a slight more serious note,both in the olympics and the football championships there's a pattern going on paying absurd amount of money to build stadiums and such, and downright bribing to be a host. Russia gets next WC(lol winter olympics cost), and Quatar is a complete farce at this point(I didn't even know it existed when I happened to hear the announcement live). Part of my wants to see the whole house of cards crash, but since sports have such a massive following, that isn't going to happen soon. At least the Quatar bit is spelling out trouble for FIFA though.

I find it difficult to care too much at this point, partially because of how intense the last premier league season was and I want that now, and partially because I'm just not a fan of Roy Hodgson (partially due to his rubbish time at Liverpool). England play boring football with maybe one good shot. We've a good side, but with him in charge I don't expect us to go anywhere.

I saw parts of the opening match.. The referee was just plain silly this time with a few rulings. For a host nation, gaining a penalty by dramatic falling over nothing(aka willfull cheating), is rather pathetic. Yeah, not a huge football fan. Especially when cameras point you out the stupid live.

@Drag
I think Holland only has a chance if they can get their act together and beat Spain tonight, if they loose but make it through the poul by beating Chile they will be beaten by Brazil in the knock-outs.

Second half was brilliant, but on a more realistic note, Spain was better in the first half and we can thank van Persie for a brilliant goal that kept Netherlands in the game.

Speaking of which, I heard Mexico was also a victim of a inept referee, It's quite odd FIFA won't consider making use of video arbitrage. Even on TV you have a easier time seeing what exactly happened. >_>

A opinion article in my paper called to boycot FIFA, especially how they handle world cup profits, while host countries pay several billions for the event. Is FIFA so corrupt it's beyond saving, and does international soccer need a clean slate?

The ref was fine in the Mexico game, it was the linesmen who were awful. And yes, something needs to be done about FIFA.

It's been a bloody good world cup so far. Cynicism is leading me to think that this will be the first 0-0 draw. So we'll see.

I think the confusion came from the fact that at first it reported that it wasn't a goal then it reported that it was. Of course the commentators seem to forget about the passage of time and that things happen as time goes by like, say, the ball actually going into the net. Thus the confusion.

I can understand it might have been confusing for those in the stadium, perhaps, but to me it was clear that the technology was ruling on two separate incidents that happened within a few seconds. But the commentator on the BBC kinda immediately jumped on the goal-line tech as confusing/unreliable, because he's a doofus.
