    Re: World Cup Discussion Thread

    Thierry Henry and Miguel are having a great battle today

    And now Henry goes to the middle and gets a penalty kick.

    How great is Zidane? Ricardo guessed right and still couldn't put a hand on that ball.

    Replay showed it was clearly a penalty. Henry would have been alone and in on goal without the defender's trip

    No kidding. Ricardo isn't really a world-class GK, but his work on penalties this WC has been nothing short of amazing.

    I love hearing all the whistles and boos whenever Christiano Ronaldo touches the ball.

    Ricardo's doing an awfully good imitation of a world-class goalie this month.

    Meanwhile, Christiano Ronaldo really deserves an Oscar. I'm starting to enjoy his theatrics. The World Cup needs a good heel.

    The thing is, he hasn't really been tested much outside of penalties.

    No real challenges for Portugal in the group stage.

    Netherlands was more of a wrestling match; probably his only game where he had to make some nice saves.

    England - No offense from England; wonderful performance in penalties

    My co-workers and I have entertained the notion that they should have 30 seconds to stand up or they will be shot and buried on the field where they have fallen.

    Ricardo's also been smothering corners.

    Good point. He has been very solid on corners and crosses.

    Portugal's getting the best of the midfield play so far, which is impressive because, unlike the wildly overrrated Brit team, the French team has a midfield that can control a game.

    As with their entire progression throughout this World Cup, should France emerge victorious today, they'll have one man to thank as being primarily responsible. Zidane has looked like the Zidane of WC 98.
