In the states there's hardly any hype going on. For example: I'm not even sure which qualifying round they're on and what teams are left. Is there a website that I can check or preferably an app?

I was thinking of starting a World Cup thread myself. Spain vs Holland was incredible. First time 2 teams have played each other in consecutive World Cup matches? Must be.

Funny thing is, my money was on Holland to win World Cup 2010 and they lost in the final... to Spain. Not saying they'll go all the way, but their odds have more than halved after that result.

Come on England!

Just check any football website. Espn and other US sports sites will cover it. Then again if your talking qualifying round I don't think you should worry so much as I don't think you understand it !

If you guys win the World Cup, we (Scotland) will be pushing for independence before September.
Last night's match was a beauty. Van Persie and Robben were stunning.
Good luck tonight, though. I always try and get behind you but I have Italy in the sweep at work.

Cheers mate. I don't mind if we lose, just as long as they give it a good go. Probably be a tight match though.

Uruguay 1-3 Costa Rica. Did not see that coming at half-time.

England lost but I'm glad we actually had a go. They created loads of chances, just couldn't put them away. Sterling was great. Bring on Uruguay!

Thanks for that. Remember one day when your team loses and someone says something stupid like that

Anyway back to the game. Bad miss by Rooney. Gets that and we're all happy about how the young squad are doing. Lots of chances but couldn't finish. Huge game on Thursday

Drogba, what a legend. Immediate impact once he came on.
