    So we all pretty much know USA is done, terrible for US soccer, hoping for a quick rebound.

    I'm sure we all have other countries in our heritage that will be cheering for.

    For me i'm still hoping Croatia qualifies.

    What say you?

    See you in Russia!

    It's a disgrace that the US didn't make it.

    Man I love that we have a group here that loves the sport.


    Croatia has a sick team. Everyone talks about Belgium as a underdog but Croatia is just as good if not better.


    I’m hoping Argentina wins the world Cup.. I want Messi to get this award so he can be the unquestioned greatest of all time.


    Right now though to the best teams in order are...


    1. France

    2.Germany

    3. Spain

    4.Brazil

    I'll pull for Belgium, because of Hazard, Courtois and Michy off my Chels.

    Probably Mexico as well since they are north americas best team.

    I expect Germany and Brazil to be the best two teams.

    Denmark 0-0 Ireland.

    Tense game last night. Two very evenly matched teams. Both physical. Hoping Ireland edges the second leg in Dublin on Tuesday.

    Croatia vs Greece 2nd leg today at 2:45pm est on ESPN news channel. Croatia needs to protect their 4-1 win from the 1st leg and Croatia qualifies for the World Cup.

    Italy is out. Let that sink in. They haven't missed a World Cup since 1958 I believe. Holland and its Total Futbol style hasn't made the last two World Cups. Still can't believe the US squandered this opportunity.

    I saw that.

    I hope Sweden calls back Ibra.


    What the heck happened to Italy during qualifying?

    They were in the same group as Spain, they were always going to be relying on the playoffs.
    A world cup with no Italy, Holland, US or Chile is going to be strange.
    On the plus side the retro kits Adidas have been unveiling over the last few weeks are amazing.

    The Dutch got knocked out on penalties in the semi final in 2014, they didn't qualify for the Euros last year though

    My bad. I am getting old. It was the Euros that they didn't qualify for.
