God damn what a match. Korea went balls out. 

Loved the lack of flopping. When people went down it was because they got the shit knocked out of them. Not some weak ass euro or south American pussy shit. 

Ghana will go far into the knock out rounds.

“Weak ass euro shit” is a ridiculous comment to have when the best soccer is played on the continent. Your gross over-generalization misses the mark with every European country other than the Italians, historically, however their Euro 2020 winning team was much better in that regard.

Considering Italy was badass enough to rule much of the world for centuries then be such drama queens never made any sense to me.

Bruh... La Liga is almost as bad as CONCACAF. And there are some divey teams in every big 5 league - especially when it's a smaller side playing a big club. 

Even the MLS is bad at times with all of the central Americans playing. 

I don't think anyone is arguing about the quality of soccer played there- just that - in general - it's a pretty floppy sport in a lot of places.

Facepalm. I was thinking you found 15 minute highlights, not Game 1 Highlights that are 5 minutes long.

I've been looking for that last goal replay, but can't find it.

Is it just me that thinks it is a little aggy for Uruguay to have 4 stars above their crest when they have only won the World Cup 2 times. The other 2 stars are for winning Olympic gold. Everyone else just adds stars for World Cup wins.

Their two Olympic titles were World Cup level tournaments before the World Cup existed, so they are legit. It's not like they are putting stars on for the 2000 Olympics or anything.

Like Kane with England, I do not know why Portugal lets CR take dangerous free kicks. He's just not that great at them.

I mean... he might be a little overrated but he's pretty damn good. 

Who on their team do you think is better?

Not really knowing all of the team, it's hard for me to say. Fernandez is better statistically, he has a conversation right around 5% scoring 2 in just under 40 attempts before Ronaldo returned to the team (he was primary at ManU). 

Ronaldo used to be good, no disagreement. But that has fallen off badly. Since he left Madrid, he has hit 1 free kick in 4 years and that's on 70-ish attempts.
