OK, STILL NOT DONE WITH THE WORLD CUP POSTS

How boring was the England vs. Portugal match? As if it weren't bad enough, they had to go through the extra 15 minutes of extended time during which nothing happened anyway, only to end on a pretty rubbish penalty shootout.

And loony Rooney getting himself kicked off the pitch? In such a crucial game? Silly kid.

I do have a bit more respect for David Beckham now, though. He's very captain-like and appears to be a good sport. It also helps that he seems to have lost the big diamond studs and fussy coiffs for this tournament. Long after the score has been forgotten, people remember how well (or poorly) the players behaved on the field. Speaking of which, my image of Cristiano Ronaldo, Totti, and the whole of Team Argentina has taken a beating.

I don't really know who to root for anymore, especially since Brazil lost to France, thanks to 34 year-old "old-timer" Zidane (yet another shock). Maybe France, in case I move there.
