    NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Undefeated Germany just lost to Italy in the World Cup and now they're out of the finals. :evil: AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!!! I was rooting for them all the way...I take German in school and some of my family was German. I was hoping they'd beat Italy because Italy beat the Ukraine and I was rooting for the Ukraine too.

    Oh well...I hope Portugal beats France and then I hope they beat Italy in the final.

    I'm really pleased that Portugal were beaten. T :D hey dived, niggled and cheated. They did not play the beautiful game. :x A shame because I love the Portuguese. I think Italy deserve to win but hope it's an exciting final.

    Overall I think this World Cup has been very disappointing and mediocre. Does anyone else agree? :cry:

    Gigimouse. I hope you find a really good venue to watch your team. Let us all know where you end up.

    Well, I hope Italy wins the Cup. I'm not a huge fan of France. If France wins it though, on German turf, that should prove interesting...the Germans and the French don't like each other.

    I wasn't happy when the Czech Republic fell out, either. They were second best in the world. I expected them to do better...oh well :?

    Well, who does like the French? I'm pretty sure none of their neighbors do. :lol:

    All riiiiight!!! Italy won the World Cup! :D
    Thank goodness they beat France! Still, being a Germany fan, it was tough to root for Germany's bitterest rival in soccer (that would be Italy) because the only other choice was the French :?

    But Germany won the 3rd place game! Woo-hoo! Go Deutschland! :mrgreen:

    Well for all you football fans I was disgusted with last night's display.

    It just confirms my fears that football consists of a lot of overpaid louts. :cry:

    does this sort of behaviour really show our kids what is acceptable? I think not :x

    I also refer to my own counties petulant youngster Wayne Rooney.

    Give me a sport where we compete for the pleasure and leave the louts outside.

    I agree with Mike. I'm a great football fan but i have been really disappointed with this World Cup. Unsporting behaviour, falling over and feigning injury, trying to get fellow professionals booked or sent off. I really had had enough by the end of the tournament and then Zidane's head butt (player of the tournament.... ha ha!) just finished it off for me :roll:

    I'm not a huge tennis fan but watching the Federer/Nadal final showed to me what sportsmanship is all about. :)
