Korea ties with Nigeria, but clinches it's place as runner-up for Group B!

Which means in their second-round match, they're against...

Uruguay. O.o Good luck, guys.

To all the Mexican Pumpers here: hope your team fares well against Argentina, too.

The least we can say is that nothing is predictable this time around.

Show me a person who describes anything as "overrated", and I'll show you a person who's run out of good ideas.

I made a "fantasy" final match bracket... I think the Netherlands might win this world cup.

Second round matches:

Uruguay vs. South Korea
Slovenia/USA/England vs. Ghana/Germany
Netherlands vs. Italy
Brazil vs. Switzerland or Chile
Argentina vs. Mexico
Probably Serbia vs. Slovenia/USA/England
Paraguay vs. Japan
Chile/Switzerland/Spain vs. Portugal

Quarter finals:
Uruguay/Korea (doesn't matter, either one will lose) vs. Slovenia/England/US/Ghana/Germany
Netherlands vs. Brazil (this game will decide who wins the world cup, in my opinion)
Argentina vs. (probably) Serbia
Paraguay vs. Portugal

Semis:
[Team that doesn't matter] vs. Brazil or Netherlands
Argentina vs. Portugal

Finals:
Brazil or Netherlands vs. Argentina or Portugal

I don't see any way the winner won't be one of those four.

Okay, after that last game, I'm a believer. Good luck to the US.

I may be a cynical asshole towards the U.S. here but after watching the refs try their best to fuck over the U.S. again (ANOTHER phantom disallowed goal and a yellow for letting the ball hit them in the nowhere near the hands, not to mention Algeria could have pulled out a gun and shot the U.S. goalie and the refs would've done nothing), I cheered for that goal. The U.S. deserved to win the group with how they played, pure and simple. I would actually have been pissed had they not made it solely because of complete trash refereeing (of course, if they sucked and didn't make it for that reason I'd be laughing).

Nice picking there. O.o

It's as I figured, Korea has a pattern, almost a rep for losing to South Americans.  That's the simplest I can and will say because I'm no racist, and I am never satisfied with losing.

Well, I still got something out of the Korea/Uruguay match that no one can top, I got to see Clon AND Koyote on stage before the game.

Got to hear First Love and Innocence (Sunjong), so there, highlight of the game.

Welp, quarter finals are in

Uruguay vs Ghana
Netherlands vs Brazil
Argentina vs Germany
Paraguay vs Spain

Other than the fact that the biggest letdown of the tornament were Italy and France, I see Uruguay vs Ghana as the underdog matchup of the tournament. What's your opinion?
