Yes, NZ was 'dismal'. They should have put 4 goals past Paraguay.

sooooo good to see Italy gone - if they played football rather than diving and carrying on they might still be there....

Was pulling for New Zealand, but at least they go undefeated in the tournament. Not bad at all!

Hard to believe both finalists from the '06 Finals are out. Craziness.

The Italy/Slovakia game was actually not a bad game to watch, especially the last 20 minutes or so. Neither of Vittek's goals were actually that impressive, and the best goal by far in the game was Italy's second, but the Italian team was just not up to par until the end, and by then it was too late. Good job to Slovakia.

Shame about NZ, but oh well.

As for Cameroon, they didn't even deserve to be in the WC this time, based on the way they played. They were certainly not the team I remembered watching in previous tournaments.

Italy plays the most unattractive style of football and is finally getting home after first phase, thanks to all teams in the group for showing the place of Italy, the mafia team.

Italy plays the most unattractive style of football...

Yes, they do more acting up for penalties than play actual football when they're on the pitch. Good riddance!

Love the world cup without Italy. Now it is time for Germany to go home. Go England!

Not laughed so hard for ages. The cheats are out. No more snipers in the crowd. By bye Azzuri.

Now it is time for Germany to go home.

Yes, but not till AFTER they win the cup... : )

Although both make me extremely happy, I think Italy's departure is even better than France's. This makes the World Cup right there--who cares what happens next? It's all gravy now, baby.

>Yes, but not till AFTER they win the cup... : )

We, Italians, have recognized the failure of the National in this World Cup and did not seek excuses. but enough to offend! we're not the mafia team! we have always won and lost with honesty. also doing a bad impression, but always honest, never cheated! nobody can prove otherwise!! We still have won four world titles!always deserved!! see what your teams combine! maybe then you will have reason to criticize. sing victory too soon is never a good thing

vai daniiiiiiii.... italian people is not happy when others lose ... may we say that they haven't played well, as in the case of France ...we don't say " France or Japan is shit" and we don't offend like you do. we are able to appreciate those strong, those who win ... we appreciate South American Football and the passion of Asian football.... what I can not understand is your happiness and contempt you have for us ... maybe envy?maybe just not able to be humble--at the bottom we are all men and I can't see what's so funny if Germany or the United States or Japan loses..regardless of nationality they are young people who have trained a lot and who has committed a lifetime to be there.
