Oh, and btw, plato213, that was 20 seconds short on 10/14. Get your facts straight.

plato213, in all the years your teams have been playing in World Cup tournaments, you have only one to your credit (males U-17 in '05). Good for Mexico. Maybe you can win this one too so you can start catching the Yanks (multiple female championships). If my team advances to the World Cup against Uruguay, I'd like nothing more than to see which one of our team progresses further. We have the players to do it, we just need the direction and I know Simoes can guide us if our players listen and execute.

"It was difficult for Costa Rica because they only had two days rest and were a player down. I think they played well in the circumstances. What we saw in the first game was OK, the second game was better and today was good. I always believe in this team." Rainer Willfeld, Burkina Faso coach
