The Czechs were in control most of the 2nd half, and had many opportunities for a 3rd goal. Seems to me Beckham created the only scoring for England. Defoe did himself no favor today. So was England lucky? I thought it was about a push between the two teams. Just MHO.
Russia-Holland Hands down. This game was hyped in Euro This game has the great possibility of being a scoring frenzy. They are no slouch, and on any given day could give anybody a match. David Healy is a goal scoring machine for them. I think they were hurt by the departure of Lawrie Sanchez. He should have never gone to Fulham. He had NI winning big games, and was loved by the fans. Back to the marquee match-ups, Spain and Italy should win handily, as should Germany.
England prevails in a close match with the Czech Republic, and Russia edges the Netherlands. Guatemala matchup. All while studying graduate level biochemistry and trying to habituate a kitten to humans. Should be a fun night. Also, Kazahstan sp? How could that have slipped through the cracks. Keane scores to put Ireland up at halftime in Oslo. Deserved goal, Ireland held much of the possession. Should be good. I think the U. Your email address will not be published.

Guatemala, 10 p. Group 2: Canada vs. Jamaica, p. Honduras, 9 p. Group 3: Haiti vs. Suriname, 6 p. El Salvador, 10 p. Czech Republic Russia vs. Netherlands Sweden vs. France Norway vs. Ireland Ukraine vs. Poland Germany vs.
Belgium Denmark vs. Spain Italy vs. Turkey vs. Chile Colombia vs. Ecuador Finland vs. That might seem like a bit of a mismatch, but last year Bradley and Maurice Edu held up very well for about 70 minutes before finally being worn-down and pierced by a beautiful Xavi run.
That, coupled with Sunday's victory, should give the Americans enough confidence to make Wednesday's semifinal a more competitive match than some might expect it to be. Now it is your turn. What starting lineup would you like to see the United States use vs.
Think the USA can pull off the upset? Excited to see how the American stack up against the best team in the world? Confederations Cup , U. Men's National Team. If the US has any chance of getting a result against Spain it is playing Trap and Attack and you do that with speed. I like the idea of a with the following players:. Not sure who is tired and how tired. His development might make a difference in I have a different mindset.
I want the soccer in this country to get better! I want us to be on a path to being a world power! But it cannot happen with the current people at the helm, … or clueless donkeys as head coaches. They truly do not understand the game! That is, we need to get raped whenever we play the top teams. Just look at most of the comments here after our Egypt performance — all of sudden everything is ok again? And so many people stating that we can be competitive with Spain?
Heaven forbid we end up losing by only one goal or even winning this game … then absolutely nothing will change! Spain, please do US soccer a huge favor and beat the living crap out of us! Show the blind people over here our true level! I, too, remember his display from our last visit to Spain, and he looked impressive.
I think Donovan will be very motivated for his first meeting with Espana, and I think he could be lethal for us tomorrow. It was good officiating on that non-call. As to Lil Mikey and his punk mouth, I should point out that we are now playing 5 matches at the Confed Cup, and we will lose tomorrow, probably badly. There can be no draw in the 3rd place match. I am tipping Bafana Bafana, as we struggle against African sides. In any case you have an axe to grind.
It reeks of bitterness. I can only conclude that you have your mind made up no matter what happens tomorrow and most likely Sunday against SA. Analysis F-A-I-L. Amen to that. I refuse to even call it a decision as it gives it a sense that there was some actual thought involved. I have a feeling Torres would do very well also. He is painfully slow. Fernando and Villa will carve his janky hammy to shreds.
You can add me to the camp that thinks you are a bit harsh on Altidore, Ives. Key to Victory: Score early! They rely on possession and build-up. That guy is ridiculous on Barca. Xavi needs him to distract defenses. Dempsey looked much better up top and has not added much on defense when out wide. If Feilhaber is not playing well he is replaced by Adu attaching midfield and slide Dempsey out to the right or Torres left midfield send Donovan out right.
Let Boca recover fully before putting him back in, Onyewu-Demerit combo has played well. Lastly, we were gifted the Honduras victory, just go to ESPN and click on that match, go to minute 60 and tell me what you think about the offside against Honduras right there.
Demerit has done well, play Bocanegra in his natural position. Bornstein has been overmatched. Egypt played two very spirited matches as well as the united states. But the USA was a little bit fitter and it really showed as Egypt ran out of gas. Bradley, Dempsey, and Donovan all averaged over 7 miles a game.
I imagine many more Americans were close to this number. This being said no Spaniard was even close to that number. This means they are moving the ball well and running less. I seriously hope BB considers all of his options because a tired team defending against a rested Spanish side is asking for trouble. Guzan should start also. I want Demerit can win a starting spot from Bocanegra, who has been shaky lately.
Onyewu has played so much better with Demerit than he ever did along side Bocanegra. Attack Attack Attack because Bora ball will only get you beat badly with our total lack of team defensive understanding at this point. Must start Clark in midfield and tell him where Xavi goes you shadow. He is the only one with the wheels and grit to even slightly hamper their midfeld.
I would use the same line up as against Egypt, except perhaps use Torres or Adu instead of Dempsey. Perhaps have Dempsey sub in. Colin, What point of my argument was wrong? Apparently being condescending is the only way to get through to some people…. Your email address will not be published. Host Ives ….

Recent News. From The Web. Rui Oliveira Ives, you won your bet.
Portugal has won by August 20, Reply. Just curious. Jonathan Beckham is over the hill. England were lucky to get a draw. If not- where can I watch it? JK Russia-Holland Hands down. RK Oh wait…. At least one team is often highly ranked and highly determined to reach the national championship. After the Gators set the tone in the 19 games played before , the Seminoles flipped the script.
FSU leads over the last 38 meetings, with the Choke at Doak game that featured 28 fourth-quarter points from the Seminoles headlining the historic matchup. The Big Apple brawl to some, the Subway Series to others Yanks vs. Mets is perhaps the most heated intra-city rivalry in all of sports or maybe just New York. While the Pinstripes have dominated the baseball world for almost a century, it's been the exuberance of the often-youthful Mets that has this feud picking up steam.
But let's be honest—the World Series was the most ruthless fan war in recent time, before the Yanks trounced the Mets in five games. Separated by 17 miles of passion, these two schools headline the most-played football rivalry in the nation. Having faced off times since with only a single interruption , these teams sparked a bitter feud long before trophies were instituted, meaning game balls were the ultimate prizes of these games.
Sure Wisconsin leads the oldest rivalry in FBS with a record, but it's the winning prizes that have us intrigued The illustrious Slab of Bacon, a piece of wood with an M and W inscribed in it depending on how it is hung , was given out until , when it was allegedly lost.
Boy, do we wish the AFL still existed This rivalry was first sparked in , with each team ranked in the Top 10 and Syracuse on a game home winning streak. And you can bet Georgetown snapped that streak in the final men's basketball game played at Manley Field House.
During the next 10 seasons, the two schools would meet eight times in the Big East tournament, four times in the finals and glamorously during the regular season, with matchups always a priority on national television. They were seen as the two bad boys of tennis, rebels if you will, ready to play for the first time at the Grand Prix Masters '79, Connors already an established superstar and McEnroe a young phenom from New York.
Connors saw McEnroe as good practice for him, yet eventually lost and was not pleased to have his thunder stolen by a newcomer. Name-calling headlined this violent matchup, yet McEnroe would quietly finish in head-to-head matchups. Not only is the spectacular Bayou Classic the best known game and rivalry in historically black college football history, but it is the only Division I Football Championship Subdivision formerly Division I-AA game to be shown regularly on broadcast television.
While Grambling leads the overall series , it's the Bayou Classic that always has fans drooling. This rivalry, however, is quite unique in that it is the only one in sports that features a New York and Texas area team. But like any great feud, this battle saw legendary coach Tom Landry get drafted by the Giants in , play for several years, join the coaching staff and cement his name Two of the best in the business, LaMotta and Robinson met for the first time in , a fight that saw Sugar Ray defeat his ferocious opponent in 10 rounds.
But it was only a taste, as the two would meet a year later They met a few more memorable times before finally colliding in the St. Valentine's Day Massacre, a fight that saw Robinson destruct his opponent's face with a viciousness that had fans cringing. Arsenal supporters may consider Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur their more traditional rivals, but it's Chelsea's status as competing neighbor that keeps these London clubs battling for the top spot.
After Chelsea's rise to the top of the Premier League in the early part of the 21s century, these two teams began to compete for the English championship more regularly, and not just during the local football derby. While most start with a bang or pick up steam somewhere along the line, this AFC West rivalry has stood the test of time and continues to thrive. The two clubs have met on Monday night 19 times, with 12 of the games being decided by seven points or less.
Precisely known as the Hudson River rivalry, the bad blood between these two clubs stretches back to the s, after the Devils moved from Colorado to the Metro area. The chilly rivalry is headlined by two memorable years, '94 and '95, that had the Rangers winning the Stanley Cup and the Devils following suit, respectively. They always seem to bring the most passion out of each other as they battle for territorial respect.
The Battle of the South Americans, as it's kindly referred to, began during the colonization of America, with Spain and Portugal fighting for the two territories. Records are insignificant, as bloodshed and fractured tibias have headlined this violent rivalry. None more notorious than the match in , when fights ensued, police were thrust onto the field and fans rushed on. The Paul Bunyan trophy two seems like enough already is given to the winner of the Michigan derby, as we'd like to call it.
While Michigan State trails the overall series 67—32—5 since it was sparked in , the Spartans have won the Trophy the last four years in a row Ice against fire, beauty against beast, cool against colloquial John McEnroe such a prolific matchup. They met 14 times at the regular tour, with seven wins for each, and played in perhaps the greatest tennis match in history.
The minute fourth set tie-breaker during the men's singles final at Wimbledon gave the sports world a true understanding of this talented, yet contrasting tandem. As the only New York rivals in the same conference and division, the Rangers and Islanders have an obvious, exuberant hate for one another and it shows every time they step on the ice.
Fans on both sides can rarely stomach the courage to compliment their metro area enemies. It's a brotherly grudge game that dates back to , a Thanksgiving-weekend tradition, more than just a football game Texas state pigskin, it doesn't quite get better.
While Arsenal leads the all-time series , with 13 titles to the Spurs' two, the North London derby goes far beyond stats for these two neighboring clubs. Essentially down the block from each other, these contrasting fans not only fume over their local opponents, but seemingly scream for blood.
Sean Avery has been bordering on insane since the start of his tumultuous, controversy-filled career on ice. Alleged racial slurs, sloppy-second comments and a pure determination to avoid class and respect have made Avery arguably the most hated player we've ever had the displeasure of watching. Since meeting for the first time in New Zealand won , these two rugby clubs have sustained quite the ferocious rivalry.
These matches are always extra sloppy. With both teams owned by competing breweries, it was clear this rivalry was set for some extra hops. Lasting from , when the teams played each other five times in the playoffs Canadiens winning three , the Battle of Quebec featured a memorable meeting that essentially presented the relationship between these two clubs.
The second-round of the NHL Playoffs known as the Good Friday Massacre was clogged with penalty minutes, 10 ejections and plenty of smashed noses, poked eyes and ruined careers. The greatest rivals in the history of Nascar, Petty and Pearson were as tight knit as they come, as they finished first and second in either combination 63 times from After crashing into each other in preparation of eluding one another, Pearson rolled across the finish line at 20 miles per hour, while his equal laid on the grass amid a dead engine.
Despite the laid-back, bright aura of California, this rivalry is among the most heated in college football. With both campuses only twelve miles apart and located within the same city, fans and players are often at each other's throats. Simpson headlines this established rivalry.
There are few rivalries featuring as much passion as the one between Williams College and Amherst, often attracting crowds of , and plenty of adrenaline. These teams often battle it out during a season finale grudge match that began in , with Williams leading the all-time series as of ' But seeing these small schools engage such large crowds, present such vigorous performances and take the illustrious walk from Weston Field right up the middle of Spring Street to St.
Pierre's Barber Shop is truly inspirational. Some call it the North West derby, others pure madness, but either way this historic rivalry never ceases to amaze us. Both hailing from the North West of England, these clubs are the most successful England soccer teams, as they have honors between them 60 for Manchester United and 59 for Liverpool. Ignited by Jim Bunning's perfect game on Father's Day of the first in Philly history and continued by several brawls in the '80s, this heated NL East rivalry could almost now be seen as lethargic.
Considering these teams have rarely been successful at the same time, it wasn't until that this mutual hate really picked up. But the battle for the NL East's top spot rages on, as these two clubs and their fans don't know where to start when describing the mutual disdain. Two countries, geopolitically and ideologically opposed to each other to say the least , were ready to face off at the Winter Olympics to a packed Field House. While one miraculous victory by the United States doesn't quite make a rivalry, perhaps the notorious third-inbound at the Olympic basketball matchup can cement this as among the best ever.
As the only male pair to have finished six consecutive calendar years as the top two ranked players on the ATP Tour — , Federer and Nadal continue to lead the tennis world. They've played 28 times, with Nadal leading the series 18—10, and have played in a record eight Grand Slam finals. But Nadal's victory at the memorable Wimbledon final was perhaps the greatest tennis match in history.
The battle of North and South Chi-town, or rather the Windy City Showdown, features two clubs aching for inner-city respect. While the White Sox lead the regular-season series 41—38, this matchup is more in depth than solely statistics. While we prefer Woods vs. Although the latter's previous choking nature once made this a bit more fierce in nature than it does on the stat sheet.
And while it features pregame bonfires, rallies, reunions and blood drives, the historic element of this matchup is perhaps The Play from the Big Game. After Stanford had taken a lead with four seconds left, the Golden Bears took the ensuing kickoff, with five laterals and the band running onto the field, for a memorable, often-controversial touchdown.
Considering one or both of these two rivals have been ranked in the top coming into 61 out of 66 games since , it's easy to see why the Red River Rivalry is often spotlighted around the nation. Rarely without national championship implications, these games often display one fanbase on one half of the field and vice versa. Once a fan favorite and legend on an island of his own, Palmer saw a fervent Nicklaus approach the golf scene with no qualms about grabbing the title for himself.
It was Nicklaus' performance during the U. Open, when he overcame a three shot deficit to Arnold Palmer to force a playoff, that had fans salivating They may have been respectful and loving on the course, but these two surely tightened their focus every time they met. Involving two of the most successful clubs in the Super Lig, the Intercontinental Derby's roots trace back to , during an expected friendly match between Fenerbahce SK and Galatasaray SK.
What was first harmless turned into a widespread fight on the pitch, with referees eventually abandoning the match and the war zone. When England beat Germany in four straight matches after the teams met for the first time in November of , it was clear a heated rivalry would be sparked although not many of us can truly concur.
While Germany may consider the Netherlands to be its main rival, its fans must still be fuming over Geoff Hurst's questionable goal in the World Cup. As the only two teams in the AFC North to have won Super Bowls, both priding themselves on hard-hitting defenses and ruthless ground games, playing each other twice a year for divisional supremacy, it's no wonder these two teams despise each other.
While few fans remember an amateur Holyfield defeating Tyson in to make the historic U. Olympic boxing team that won nine gold medals, it was perhaps a significant sign of things to come. The two met as professionals for the first time in , with Holyfield finishing off a stunned Tyson. But a bloody rematch would see Iron Mike snack on his opponent's ear in what is among the most notorious performances in boxing history.
They met times in 10 years, including six Eastern Conference Championships '60, '62, '65, '66, '67 and '68 and two NBA Finals '64 and ' But while Wilt was the statistical master beating Russell in rebounds per game and scoring 50 or more points against him seven times , it was Russell's nine championships to Chamberlain's one that had this constant bout shifting towards the Boston area.
Bill Russell was perhaps the only opponent who could even keep up with his fellow giant. Most thrilling during the time when both teams were part of the Big Eight Conference before , this rivalry saw OU and Nebraska meet for 71 consecutive seasons. Nebraska's 25—21 defeat of No. With each team having 11 national championships and seven Heisman Trophy winners, this is arguably the most tightly-knit intersectional and prosperous rivalry in all of college sports.
Beginning in , when football was still evolving from rugby, this historic competition became the second oldest continuing rivalry and also the third most-played rivalry game in college football history. For these two programs, the illustrious bout has been the final game of the season since , considering Ivy League teams often don't participate in the playoffs.
Bitter enemies in football first played in and basketball , these two programs may not be in the same conference, but certainly battle it out every year for Kentucky supremacy as the two biggest colleges in the state. Dick Vitale's belief that this is the third biggest rivalry in college sports makes us true believers, baby!
Amid the meetings between these two storied clubs is a split Youngstown, Ohio fanbase eager for a bruising display of hard-nosed pigskin. While the Browns have faded from the Turnpike rivalry a bit considering their lack of recent success, this rivalry remains heated, beloved and the oldest in the AFC.
Pure money-hungry hatred between these two clubs, having won a combined 27 division titles and eight Super Bowls. Sure they're the two wealthiest franchises in the NFL, but this rivalry has been fuming since the 'Boys joined the league as an expansion team in Stemming from the Civil War era, when Missouri's pro-slavery society attempted to influence Kansas' entrance into the union, this collision isn't only the oldest college sports rivalry west of the Mississippi River, but features plenty of bad blood between fans.
But now that Missouri will leave the Big 12 for the SEC, it seems the future of this rivalry is quietly dwindling. The Chiasso Cup of was the first derby meeting between these two Italian clubs, and the Derby della Madonnina has continued to excite worldwide diehards at least twice every year. Inter Milan was once known for its bourgeoisie-esque support, while AC Milan was backed by the working class.
There's no game more significant to the survival of the American people than the Army-Navy battle that commenced in While Navy leads the all-time matchup with a record of , it was the first appearance of the instant replay in that makes this fierce competition even more historic. This renowned, albeit short-lived rivalry began in , when Air Jordan was MVP, Defensive Player of the Year and had just led his feisty Bulls past the Cavs in the first round of the playoffs.
But then came the mighty bad-boy Pistons, ever eager to destroy their prolific opponent. They beat the Bulls in five games, and met them again during the following year's Conference Finals, using the supposed "Jordan Rule" guarding only MJ which they stated was a ploy to get into their opponents' heads. Considering these two historic franchises have played each other more times regular season and the playoffs combined than any other two teams in NHL history, their pure disdain for each other is quite understandable.
In postseason play, they've met for a total of games and faced off eight times in Game 7 situations. It all began on April 8, , when Maurice "The Rocket" Richard scored a blood-dripping, Stanley Cup Semifinals-winning goal against Sugar Jim Henry after returning to the bench following a concussion.
Any two teams in the same vicinity are bound to have a fist-clenching battle for respect every time they meet, and this battle for Floridian supremacy is no different. To put the annual matchup into perspective, the Miami—Florida State game was the most watched college football game in ESPN history, and the and meetings were the second and fifth-most watched regular season games, respectively.
