SHould have been a direct kick outside the box for Uruguay


Yep. Cutting across the attacker, missing the ball, and catching the attacker is still a foul even if the attacker embellishes.

Yeah, they should start flopping and openly crying like Uruguay.

They will in about 20 minutes.

Re-watch the last 20 minutes of extra time in the US-Ghana game and get back to us.

Yes, I watched it.

Not sure how this has anything to do with this game. They're not dicking around today.

But, yeah, Will's right...they're from a bigger country! Fuck them!

EDIT - Holy shit! What a shot!

Ghana were falling all over the pitch to waste time. Flopping is flopping is flopping.

The Jubulani was moving all over the place on that one. It literally started one way and swerved back the opposite way.

It's amazing to me how often the corner taker can't get it over the first man. Give your teammates a chance.

Man, this ball moves like a fucking wiffleball from range. Both keepers seemingly caught off-guard by it at times.

Watch Ghana lose composure and make a dumb mistake or two. Uruguay is moving on by winning this match.

Yes, and their flopping was the reason the US couldn't finish any of 58 chances they had.

If only they had 62 chances, they'd have tied it!

I think everyone has been trying to compensate for the ball. If they put it where they normally do, the thing sails clear across the pitch.

I didn't say they lost because Ghana were time wasting. The US would have done the same if they had scored. I'm just saying that implying Ghana are above diving is blatantly false.

Yeah, and he dove two seconds later when there was no contact. If he'd gone down during the shorts-yanking, he might have gotten the penalty call.

Forlan gets dead ball kicker of the tournament so far. Minus the odd corner, every ball he puts in has pace and looks threatening.

And with one of the best goal scorers in the tournament (Suarez), it's easy to see why they're still in this.

He just drills it, and it works. No sense trying to play the perfect ball with a ball that refuses to be played perfectly.

Less than a week since Ghana had to play 120 vs the US. Will be interesting if they really hit the wall in extra time.

EDIT: Or what EastCoaster said.
