It's like full-contact chess.

I have a general knowledge about how the game is played and what not. I just need to know how the rankings, points and groups work.

3 points for a win, 1 point to each team involved in a draw, zero points (and a bitch slap) for a loss. Each team plays the other three teams in their group, and the top two point-getters in each group advance to knockout, or tournament-style play. In the event of a tie, most goals scored in the three matches is the first tie-breaker.

Each group was "pseudo-randomly chosen" - I think the 8 highest ranked teams in the world were each placed in groups A through H, with the remaining 24 teams being randomly placed.

As far as the FIFA world rankings work, you're better off having Ranny explain.

Congratulations to South Korea and as for the French ... I wonder what Patrice Evra will say?

Annoyed that I've missed talking about what have so far been some pretty interesting games. I think South Korea have played with a lot of excitement that is good to watch, and some of the upsets (Spain to Swiss, Germans to Serbs etc) and unforeseen results have made it a good world cup. Australia have played horribly, but I don't mind since I go for pretty much everyone else.

New Zealand have been going great! England has a lot of problems this year! And I guess now we know who DPRK will nuke first; bye Portugal!

It totally looked like it was going to be a draw but the US pulled out a goal the last minute.

Also, USA will face Ghana in round of 16, your odds of making it to quarterfinals aren't that bad

Wait? Ghana? How did they beat out Australia? It looks like they both got the same amount of points but that Australia got more goals. What am I missing?

I was wrong - first tie break is goal differential (total goals scored minus goals let in) then the second tie break is most goals scored. THird tie break is a coin toss.

Ghana beats Australia 0 to -3

My only complaint with the vuvuzuelas (??) is that they drown out any possibility of hearing any chants or songs usually associated with the game. I don't mind the droning buzz that much.

Yes! What a great performance by Slovakia, I was seriously excited about that game. Fuck Italy for being a bunch of big girls blouses, and also showing no humility at all after losing.

They stole Eurovision from Slovakia so hopefully they can make up for it with the World Cup.


Also sadness for New Zealand, whom needed to beat Paraguay and drew. Great goal keeping from NZ though.

Actually I think Paraguay needed to win to get Slovakia through :/ damn.

The end minutes of the game were actually pretty intense and entertaining, too bad Italy sucked shit the first 70 minutes or so :/

But kudos to Slovakia, great game by them and it's great to see them advance into round of 16 because of it.

EDIT: Indeed, the italians' reactions were unsportsman after the game, did Lippi even congratulate the slovakian coach?

No he did not. I saw no hand shaking by anyone, actually. But I can understand the annoying way Slovakia was drawing out the extra time near the end; that was dumb.

Some Slovakian guys had their shirts off to swap with the Italians, and the Italians obviously didn't want to part with their superior team shirt for a shitty Slovakian one
