Is that a us supporter wearing a Germany jersey and living in Mexico??? WOW... that really is confusing... but of course there should be a 'reasonable' reason (lol) for that lack of identity...

Detrini, the purpose of my comment was to show that you can't compare Spain's victory over Tahiti, with Germany's victory over the U.S.A. and say that Spain looked better because they finished better and won by more goals. When the competition is weak, finishing is easier, and the goals will naturally follow. I was not comparing the U.S. to Brazil or Mexico. I was comparing them to Tahiti, and they ARE a MUCH tougher opponent than Tahiti, whether you're willing to acknowledge it or not. The U.S. has qualified for the Under-20 W.C. 12 times, which as I said, is more appearances than any other nation in their confederation, and their trouncing of Cameroon is proof that they're no slouch. And don't get me started on the whole soccer/football discussion again. I was born in Germany, have always loved the sport, and know what it's called. I nevertheless call it soccer out of convenience because we have another sport called football here in the U.S.

"I'm very happy with the players and they deserve all the credit they get. We deserved the victory, but we made it difficult for ourselves by wasting so many chances in the first half," Horst Hrubesch, Germany coach.
