No idea. If, he probably is into UK teams like most HongKongers.
But I`d like to know that. Smile

I know, but unfortunately it`s 3am German time. You know what, I`ll try to keep my fingers crossed in my sleep. Smile Good luck to Japan!

Ah you lucky soccer fans. Too bad soccer is not that popular in US, but I did manage to find a Hispanic TV channel that broadcasts every World Cup game Wink .
Have to work M-F during game time though scratch .
My crazy watching soccer game days were so long ago, when I was cheering with bunch of male classmates during school years Shocked . Don't think I would do the same these days Laughing Laughing .
Good luck with your favorite team Waving .

Hi Yitian
I mutate to an soccer fan on such special occasions ( and watching a fraction only....for time difference )
Watching worlds best teams and their ball-artists make fun- once you started to watch Wink

Sorry for Japan, Yuka Sad......nevertheless BRAVO Honda ! Wish the Japanese team more of good luck for the following matches ! thumbright

For you Heike, the big finger-crossing starts tomorrow Wink
Guess it will be an exciting match...Germany:Portugal !.( May our Austrian "export" Alaba be most successfull for your team ! ( given he gets the chance to play ) thumbleft

Aww, so sorry for Japan. I couldn`t see it as mentioned before. Chin up Yuka, it`s not over yet!
Also England lost to Italy Shocked wow.

I was surprised by Costa Rica, a well played match. They stayed patient and waited for their chances.

What can I say Helga. Confused Alaba is playing for my favorite club Bayern Munich NOT for Germany. If Austria made it into the final round, he`d be there as well - with the Austrian team. So I guess he won`t be able to help us tomorrow. Wink
Thanks for your crossed fingers!

Yitian, we are no experts here just having fun discussing what we`ve seen and cheer for each one`s team. Same for me as for Helga, if I can see the world`s best teams play I take the chance - if working hours permit. I played for about 8 years in a women`s team about 20 years ago. Maybe that`s the reason for my enthusiasm.

Due to work, I won`t be able to see much of today`s games. Probably the second half of France - Honduras.

Looking forward to watching Portugal VS Germany, too !! Very Happy
