Weren't you the one who said you were tired of "moral victories"? Or does that just apply to African teams?

PS: Remind me again of how breaking the one team in the Second Round barrier is a "moral victory"?

<Sigh>

It is femibyte who said fighting till the end but still losing is a "moral victory". He made the correlation on another thread. A thread he started. A thread upon which he said he is tired of "moral victories".

Which is the point of the question. A question which was directed at femibyte.

:roll:

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


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!!


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:


Opaks! I guess conceding a cheap PK in the dying seconds is not giving up? :roll:

How is that giving up? Some of una no dey gree use the cells actively, everything na autopilot.

Did Argentina 'give' up because the Swiss hit the post in the dying embers of their game? Did Belgium 'give up' because they almost lost a game they had owned (they'll be sending Wondo boxes of chocolates and cases of beer for life), did Germany give up because Algeria had chances to steal something from them?

Since when did a simple lapse in concentration become 'giving up'? I must be missing this definition of giving up.

The Greeks didn't give up. CIV couldn't hang on. Subtle difference.
