We Don't Hwan't You Anymore

The boys at the Oxford English Dictionary have got their erasers out again for a second redefinition of the term sore losers in as many weeks. And this time the reason has nothing to do with Argentina. I've never heard anything like the pathetic, poor sportsmanship of Perugia president Luciano Gaucci who — following Perugia player Ahn Jung-Hwan's golden goal that knocked Italy out of the World Cup — proceeded to sack the Korean star. Dubious defence of the sacking…

“He was a phenomenon only when he played against Italy. I am a nationalist and I regard such behaviour not only as an affront to Italian pride but also an offence to a country which two years ago opened its doors to him.”

“I have no intention of paying a salary to someone who has ruined Italian soccer.”

If it wasn't a mans job it would be hilarious.

The Big Match

Owen's fit, Lucio's injured (pleeeeease). Everyone in the England camp are certainly up for it, Brazil are overconfident? I'm convinced we'll beat them and I'm the most pessimistic of fans. Wouldn't you just love it.

If you want to try and make a bit of money out of it then check out Sporting Odds betting offers. Theres some decent bets on offer, including 3/1 on a direct free kick being scored 8/1 on Ashley Cole being first booked player (Cafu plus a tendacy to dive in equals decent bet!) and 7/4 on a goal scored from outside the box. Theres also an offer of two free bets if you're a new client.
