Make no mistake about it, the USA will return home with heads held high in pride after a remarkable World Cup where they not only did well but moved the needle at home in terms of fan love for soccer! Bet on it.

They also played and never gave up till the final whistle. African teams could learn from that. It ain't over till the fat lady sings.

which African teams gave up? Was it not Algeria who scored with (almost) the last kick of their match?

we made it to the round of 16 and lost 2-1 in extra-time just like last time, what exactly is there to be proud about? :)

King, we made it out of a true group of death this time. We barely lost to a very good Belgium team. Last WC we got England, Algeria, and Slovenia. Frankly, all those teams were weak, even England. We were out powered by Ghana in the next round.

This time nobody out powered us. We played much better tactically and, which isn't always the case, psychologically. We're very aware of our talent deficiencies, especially in possession football. There is a plan to fix this.

By the way, I'll say it again after watching the game on hi definition last night: Belgium is really good. To take them to OT speaks a lot for the US. But make no mistake about it, Belgium has a complete team, one capable of challenging for this WC.

Belgium is the epitome of modern football professionalism and a strong football culture. They ran every step of the way with a strong running US team. They were physically and psychologically strong. Lots of individual talent. They showed German patience, French flair, and Dutch possession. They were extremely patient and never wavered. I dare say that they're about as fine a European squad as one can be.

Messi has an interesting challenge ahead. It's the ultimate team vs a decent team with a great individual. Argentina is surely better than the US. But Belgium too seems to get better with each game. Going to be a classic South America vs Europe game.

Cheers, Mate

Nigeria gave up. I've never seen a Nigeria side do that before but once France scored, we visibly gave up.

More to the point, which African team allowed their opponent to have 38 shots on goal in a single match? To put this in perspective, Nigeria allowed opponents 35 shots on goal in the four matches they played in the tournament (yes, this includes France and Argentina). How this match is being spun as a triumph for the US is mind boggling (see @mate above..)

Anyway, there hasn't been a time the United States leaving the WC with their heads down. Even when the USA got thrashed they still held their heads high because they know they have giving it their all even when their all was not good enough. It is un-American to hold your head down. So yes, I bet on it that they will hold their heads high. But make no mistake about it, Klinsman go hia wein in a few weeks. The pressure to take the United States to another level has just begun. Klisman has no place to hide now. He will have to take this team to quarter finals next WC, and winning all the Gold Cups before then, with style or bust! His job has just began.

Dude, did Ghana not give up against USA? I know I should not be supporting Ghana against USA but Ghana gave up once they equalized. Naija also gave up against France. CIV gave up against Greece!! And yes Algeria was the only AFrican team to take it to the last whistle!! yarns!!

I guess you could read it that way. The way me I look am be say the bobo generalize, he was wrong of course because I think Nigeria was the only African team that showed that particular bad behavior. Even Cameroon in all their incompetence kept punching.

My own be say Nigeria gave up and that ting go vex me until the next major tournament. :(

Compared to how Switzerland conceded a goal in the 118th minute against Argentina and seemed to receive a shot in the arm, even hitting the bar, we became grounded and utterly lack lustre after conceding to France in the 79th minute...obviously we didn't fight till the end.

nonsense.

what do you call GIVING UP?

Ghana conceded after equalizing, how tf is that giving up?
CIV did not 'give up', they conceded a cheap PK in the dying seconds

Basically if one team scores in the dying seconds against the other, the team that conceded has given up...wow :roll:
