England V USA Worldcup Match

Did you realise that in the recent World Cup match between England and the USA which kicked off at 19.30 the Americans had considered turning up at 1944 and saying they had won it!

Consider what would have happened if they had not shown up at all. Think England would have won?

Re: England V USA Worldcup Match

Looks like Germany will have another chance in getting their own back, AGAIN !.

I am going to keep an eye open for clips on YouTube based on the film Downfall about the match.

One example: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nrryj...eature=related

unfortunately they have pulled the one about the GS and Honda. Apparently the filmīs producers ( not the director or the actor ) have complained about the clip being used without their permission ( i.e. free of charge ).

The GS one made I larff, and if Germany lose (which they probably won't) I think this clip is crying out for a new subtitle with Herr H complaining about the team.

I agree, it did not cross the goal line


Tough game ahead for the Germans.
