Ok guys, the Pick Em' thread is going to get closed. This is the thread to discuss all of the matches. Spain and Russia are currently playing, definitely an exciting match so far!

The Ivan's are putting up a good fight. If I were a Spanish supporter I'd be a bit worried about the defense, it's been a little shaky at times.

Could this be the first tournament that Spain actually plays to what they're capable of? I always consider the Spanish among the biggest choke artists in recent memory when it comes to real competitions.

I still think everyone is pretty much even. After group play everyone's going to be all over the place. Still haven't done bad at all, France let all of us down, but we all still got the draw. Italy totally f*cking blew it, but everyone picked them so that didn't matter. And this game was almost a draw, and this was one the hardest to call for me.

At least my team have a great shot of getting out of the group already. :D

Is it me or is this match destined to be a 0-0 draw already? Austria have had good opportunities to score fairly easy goals, they just can't buy one! And Artur Boruc is playing GREAT early on. He is certainly the reason this game is 0-0.

SECgamecock453

And Italy shouldn't have advanced past Australia in the tournament that matters, so I wouldn't complain too hard about officiating, especially with PKs :)

That was a bad foul and yellow card call on Italy during stoppage. Italy should be lucky to have the draw because if it wasn't for Buffon, that would easily been a loss. Didn't see the goal waived off by the offsides.

Italy were done hard by the officials, there is no doubt about. The foul called on Romania was for the exact same thing that happened to Toni which wasn't called a foul. It bordered on criminal. :barf:

Italy needs a draw from this match. Holland needs to have something to play for against Romania next week, then Italy needs to win against France. But the way the refs are calling the matches against Italy I'm not going to get my hopes up.

No matter what happens in this group stage, it's obvious that Italy needs to get younger before South Africa to effectively defend their world title. It would also be nice to NOT be in the group of death again. They had to survive the hardest group in the WC, and now they are stuck in it again.

I became a Buffon fan a few years ago when he made an absolutely ridiculous save on a Zidane free kick in the Champions League. ZZ bent it so beautifully over the wall and it was diving right into the bottom corner- the thing was going in- and somehow Buffon flicked the thing away with the tips of his outstretched fingers. I was in shock.

Petr Cech is one of my favorite keepers in the world, actually he is my favorite, and it was just tough to see him lose like that today. That really sucks...and I also felt bad when Deco scored that garbage goal against him, but hopefully he can bounce back from this tournament. I can't imagine how he feels right now though.

The Austrians have looked better than some of the teams in this tournament but just don't have much to show for it. They came out strong against the Poles and also held Croatia off the entire match after giving up an early PK. Not only did they hold them off, they actually pressed most of the match. If the German defense plays like it did against Croatia, this could easily be a loss.

God DAMNIT I missed the goal because I actually had work to do at work, usually it's slow as all get out. Then of course I have sh*t to do when a goal is scored. But I just saw the replay thankfully and that was an awesome strike. BALLACK!

DEUTSCHLAND!!!

Croatia are also up 1-0 on Poland.

Not looking too good for the French. First, Ribery gets hurt. Second, Abidal gets a red card and Italy gets a PK.

It could be a lot worse too, the Italians have had loads of chances.

Especially now that Gattuso and Pirlo are suspended for the next match. Italy's chances are slim to advance to the semis.

However, the Spanish are notorious chokers and the Italians are good enough to play with anyone in the world when things are clicking. It should be a great match.
