Ha, I find it hilarious that the "Humble Pie" Marca article asterisks(*) this message below the title:

"We are number 1 but it is better to lose now than a year from now in the World Cup."

Wow, ok.

The brazilian tv channel Globo made a sensational reporting in an ironic way. It was ridiculous, they focused in some mistakes by the american team instead of showing the good defense plays and the well organized tatics. They manipulate, i guess the people who didn't watch the game though the US won the match by luck. Keep playing this way guys, for just shut the fuck up of some guys out here. Sorry for my english if i had any mistake.

I wish I knew about headlines IN the United States. Both of the Chicago newspapers seemed to bury the story of what is possibly the biggest upset in soccer.

The César said...

Did everyone watch Jim Rome right after the BRA-RSA game? I understand that his job is to be obnoxious, but to say "the US played a good game," and then proceed to tell the dismiss the team, the sport, and its fans is simply petty. What a schmuck.

Man, we don't get respect abroad or from jerks like Jim Rome domestically... I hope we put out a great showing on Sunday and make them all eat some serious crow.
