Holy God. This is why the World Cup fucking sucks: Carlos Paredes flopped about 300 times in the game against England, but didn't get called for it once.

yeah... the germany-costa rica game was surprisingly clean...

... the other thing about the england -paraguay game was that it was boring. they can't all be gems...

did you catch the argentina-ivory coast match, though? that was end-to-end for the most part. there were a lot of near misses. good stuff. a lot of acting there too, but i'm willing to fogive it for a few good through balls.

Ivory Coast might have some of the fastest players I've ever seen. They just blew by Argentina's midfield whenever they felt like it. It is my firm belief that the African teams are always the most fun to watch, because they always give the established teams a run for their money.
And as for England, they looked extremely underwhelming against Paraguay. I hate England's style of play, which seems mostly based on dumping it in and hoping for superior one-on-one play. Also, every time Peter Crouch has the ball I want to retch; he might have the ugliest game of any World Cup player.
