As a person aware of the sensibilities of other countries, I would like to disassociate myself from this joke. Thrashing them tomorrow will be enough humiliation, surely?

I also disassociate myself from the joke and blame my friend who told me the joke (he must be blamed for all things ). Also, he has another joke which he says he'll only tell me tomorrow, the dastard!

Oh and we better thrash them damn Yanks, I've got a fiver riding on the outcome with my joke telling friend.

I'll look forward to disapproving of that one as well then.

Well at lest the refs gave them a tie, it should have been 2-1 Mexico.

Oh and btw go US, I'll be watching the US vs UK game at my brothers house.

Was there a goal disallowed that I missed? I was away from the match a couple of times on the phone.

Unless I'm not understanding the Offside rules, the first goal Mexico scored was recalled due to offside. But there was clearly a defender between the offensive player and the goal. There was several replays to show this error.

Had to share this. But the link only takes you to the daily show sight.

Look for John oliver's piece: Two Teams One Cup
The link worked, maybe I should have been watching it at work, I couldn't stop laughing.

Sorry, I think you are misunderstanding it. We too had several replays and commentary that clearly demonstrated that it was offside.

The offside rule states that there must be two opposing players between the offensive player and the goal. The fact that one of these is almost always the goalkeeper means that a lot of people read it the way you do.

In today's case, the goalkeeper had come out and got himself ahead (or behind, depending how you look at it) of the offensive player leaving just one player (the defender you correctly mention) between the offensive player and the goal-line. Therefore the ruling of offside was correct.

Yes, okay I understand now, as much as I've heard people explain the rule, nobody explained it as easily as you.

Based on my new understanding, I do agree that was a good call, I just thought that since the defender was hidden in the net the refs did not see him.

I was able to watch the Mexico vs South America game since it was early enough before going to work. But I'm missing the Uraguay vs France game, since I'm now at work. Maybe I'll go to lunch in a few and catch the the second half.

Well, 0 v 0 at half time and not a great game to be honest (I'd hate to see you waste a lunch hour).

I think that Portugal have a good chance - shame Nani is injured and out but still a lot of good players there.

Looks like there could be a Spain v Portugal match at some point if all goes according to form; should be an interesting game
