I'm asking because I don't know and not to be an ass, but has Rooney ever had a good showing for the National team in any event? I feel like this would be equivalent to Kobe Bryant playing in the Olympics and being totally shut out. The world who doesn't know him/watch him would just think, "What's the big deal?"

What's the quote: the English are never happier than when you tell them that they are finished?

Milner destroys the only offensive buildup for the match so far for England by getting tackled by the referee. I don't even know right now.

The Univision crew repeatedly referring to Lampard and Rooney as "Super Frankie" and "Astro Boy" is hilarious.

Germany blows a very good chance to nearly put this game out of reach.

He was fantastic in Euro 2004. Hasn't done much since on the Int'l stage.

EDIT: and now it's 2-0.

England just got FUCKED. Like, beyond fucked, that wasn't even close.

Edit - what a joke FIFA is if they can allow that to happen. Scoring goals is really hard and the refs have overturned way too many in the past two weeks.

Question for the ignorant: why no replay in soccer? Is it because of the whole running clock thingy? That wasn't even particularly close and would have taken 15 seconds to look at.

From the responses so far, I'm guessing FIFA doesn't want replay. Tradition or some crock?

No further evidence needed that FIFA has this thing sewn up to ensure one of the Big Five wins. The World Cup is fixed.

A little bit of USA "start playing when we're behind" syndrome maybe.
