    Nice to hear a fellow soldier here! I wanted to see the 2002 world cup but I was very young. But I do remember in Montreal, people were celebrating Brazil's win against germany. Man the Brazil roster... Full of legends. Now its full of idiots who have no experience.

    Hahah! But you can't always blame the referee. Colombia did have to step up their game psychologically.

    Honestly, I stopped watching that game after the first 40 minutes. I didn't even watch the full first half. It was such a pain for me seeing such a world renowned and skilled team going to rock bottom. Brazil needs to step up their game in players and tactics. A good example, the 2002 Brazil Roster. One of the best in history.

    I'm with you although soccer was a word used first in England - apparently its a shortening of Association Football.

    Couldn't agree more, I got to see 8 goals score in that game.

    I only call it soccer because I live in Canada. If I ever travel, I would say football.

    I felt bad for England. They need to shape up because I remember they had an amazing team as well.

    You're right which ever way you say it. Us Brits complain when soccer is used but we created the word and used it regularly prior to the 1940's (apparently).

    2022 will be interesting for sure. However, I am saddened by the fact that many great players from each international teams retired such as ronaldhino, puyol, xabi, bale, kaka, juninho pernambucano, rio ferdinand, raul gonzalez, ryan giggs, javier zanetti, antonio di natale, etc.

    It will be interesting to see if Spain can stop the rot! Can't believe how badly they are now doing so soon after World and EU domination!

    That's it, amen :D

    We screwed up the Italian football with a decade or more in the nineties and up, with a really bad management of the clubs.
    We need a radical change now, starting from owning our own stadium like in England and Germany, and selling better the clubs brand in markets like Asia or Arabs countries.

    Chelsea is my fav team!! but i am a senior in high school, i have been playing since i was 8, and we had one of the best soccer teams this school has ever had this year, so we won sectionals no problem, but on our first game of regionals, this is the first year we had a chance to win, but we were playing so bad, and we lost 2-3:( super disappointing
