    Can't say I'm sad about the result.

    Let's just hope England don't suffer the same fate tomorrow!

    He should've included them in the start! Instead he throws Torres, Casorla and Koke into action. At least Casorla had a few shots but those two... Also, playing with one forward sucks

    Nah, you didn't saw Villa last 2 years... Mata, i dunno never been a fan of it.

    To be honest, its was all an attitude problem, i told everyone watching the match at my house vs Netherlands at end of  first half  ( 1-1 ) we are gona lose this match 1-4 at least seeing their attitudes... i was wrong we lost 1-5 lol

    I saw him in Champions League... He's a top class scorer and would've been more helpful with all those midfielders playing! Probably won't play for Spain in the next World Cup and Euro, from what I've heard he moved to US

    What was del bosque thinking though, if you're about to go out of the world cup and need a goal why would you bring on torres who had only scored 5 club goals last season

    Yep, everyone over here could not belive he brought Torres and Villa... Oh well. let's hope we do some major cleaning, we needed something like this, last 2 years Spain was a team of friends instead of a team of football players.

    Shhh, don't call it soccer!  Certain people/dragons get all in a huff about it. Or maybe it's only when us Americans do it.

    There is still hope but we'll see tomorrow night. Tactically, Itally and Costa Rica are better off playing for a draw which I reckon they'll do. If that happens, our guys will be coming home.

    I don't think italy will want to play for a draw as they're only interested in winning the group we have a very slim chance, we'd of had a good chance but the Ref was shocking

    Agreed. Although we didn't play as well as we did last week against Italy, Godin should of been sent off in the first half but the referee bottled it.

    The only player which was the difference was Louis Suarez. Rooney should of had a hatrick but of course, no one will remember that, they'l only remember the tap in that even Emile Heskey couldn't miss. But of course, he'l be labelled as a world class player!

    We need a young manager in my opinion, what as Roy Hodgson ever done in his career?

    Still struggle to understand the reasoning why Danny Welbeck starts a game and why Ashley Cole was overlooked.

    What's the difference between the England team and a teabag?

    A teabag stays in the cup longer!

    He should be banned for life ; that was his third biting incident, afterall. (Had he bit me, he would not be able to play again)
