Why do these teams not play like this during regular time :-| .

you can only play like this once your opponents let you have all that space, which usually is when they are exhausted

Well you can't say that the US didn't show a lot of courage and character there.

Could easily have been 2-2, if not more, for the US there. But alas.

Probably the best game of the world cup, definitely the extra time. Who said it'd be boring?

Could easily have been 5-2 for Belgium lol... 

Yes, it could have been 39-16 had all the shots gone in. That would have been interesting!

But yeah, point is that there's no way Belgium should have been under so much pressure at the end.



 

Here lies the dearly departed Nintendomination Thread.

As my vision said, Belgium 1 USA 0.

Mine said 2-1 for Belgium and I was right. Suck it, Anfebious. Suck it.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

After 30 shots on goal it could have been a lot worse.

Yay!!!

If USA is capable of playing such great offensive football, why did it play such shitty, disgusting anti-football all the time!? Seriously, you should fire Klinsmann for making you play this way and hire someone, who will let you attack.



Wii U is a GCN 2 - I called it months before the release!

My Vita to-buy list: The Walking Dead, Persona 4 Golden, Need for Speed: Most Wanted, TearAway, Ys: Memories of Celceta, Muramasa: The Demon Blade, History: Legends of War, FIFA 13, Final Fantasy HD X, X-2, Worms Revolution Extreme, The Amazing Spiderman, Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate - too many no-gaemz :/

My consoles: PS2 Slim, PS3 Slim 320 GB, PSV 32 GB, Wii, DSi.

Sucks for the U.S but this is why I always say parking the bus can never win a WC tournament. You still have to have some attack. U.S. does have attacking power but were content to keep defending till they were down 2-0. Did they think Howard would singlehandedly win the PK shootout or something?

Nice comeback at the end but by then it was already too late. Respect to the team for never giving up though, same as Algeria yesterday.

Goalkeepers do exist and the fact that they are good does count. Howard played one of the best matches Ive ever seen a goalkeeper play, it was pretty awesome.

In case you didnt notice playing like that leaves some major openings on your defense, Lukako had infinite space whenever the ball got to him, if you go that ofensive the whole game its suicidal. When the match is at the end and you dont need ot save energy anymore and your oponent is trying to hold on to theyre victory its possible to play like that otherwise it isnt.



WOOPM WHOOP WHOOP BOTH GAMES 100% CORRECT thats a tournament first for me
