Onyewu getting hurt is bad news for the USA... I had high hopes for him, but with that injury he probably wont be full strength next summer..

Davies is a big loss as well, but i think he will back, any news there?

Two games away from going to the World Cup.

Unfortunately, those two games are against France.

I can seriously not wait. I lived in Chile for a while and it was a whole new experience to see how crazy the rest of the world is with soccer. I then spent time in BA, in Argentina, I do have a great appreciation for the sport and cannot wait for the World Cup

I feel for Costa Rica. To be a few seconds from making the World Cup and have it snatched away, must be gut-wrenching.

I do not think Costa Rica will be able to hold off Uruguay, who have just too much firepower.

No way Davies is back in time for South Africa barring some kind of miracle...

I don't have a link for Onyewu but last I heard it is expected to take 6 months to fully recover from his knee injury. That really doesn't leave a realistic amount of time for him to get back into the shape in time for the WC so I expect the US will be without both Davies and Onyewu for South Africa 2010. Really disappointing ....

Just odd that Denmark qualified, beating out Portugal and Sweden with a team of scrubs, our team is arguably the worst it's been in my lifetime, only 3 elite players, the best of which is permanently injured (Agger), and maybe 5 or 6 solid internationals, 3 of them permanently injured as well (Jesper Grønkjær, Daniel Jensen and Thomas Kahlenberg), but hey, a solid goalkeeper (Thomas Sørensen), an elite central defense (Simon Kjær who has come out of nowhere, 2 years ago he couldn't get on the field in Denmark, now he's tearing up the serie A and Agger when he isn't injured), elite Def mid (Poulsen) and a gamechanging striker (Bendtner) can get you far. Rest of the team is pretty much scrubs though, though some have performed admirably.

Btw, Feilhaber is tearing it up here, a joy to watch, pairing up with one of the aforementioned scrubs Jacob Poulsen, who scored the decisive goal against Sweden to clinch qualification, to form the best midfield tandem in the league.

This might be the first time someone has ever referred to Bendtner as a gamechanging striker.

He has been for Denmark and mind you, he's still young, and already a semi regular for Arsenal, guy's an ass, but he'll be a solid player

Football is the name of the game, soccer is just what you've been brought up to call it on your side of this globe.

Like I said, it is just my opinion. I don't get in to soccer but I like baseball and many people can't stand to watch or listen to baseball. I do like the soccer babes though! HOT!!
