Personally, I am really disappointed that the USA were beaten and we will not see them in the latter stages. The winning goal from Ghana was a penalty awarded by the German ref for what could only be described as a nudge on their striker by the American defender. This decision,to me,epitomizes why the majority of Americans do not enjoy soccer. If left to FIFA, if you come within a yard of your opponent, a foul will be given against you. It will kill the game. Congratulations to Italianpatthepatriot on your teams performance, I will follow them with interest. Although it hurts to say so, I also offer congrats to my English neighbours on their success. Best result of the night was the Aussies drawing 2-2 with the Croatia. They now play the Azzuri in what should be a really good game. Forza Equador!!
