World Cup Qualifying

Soccer Saturday: Your Running Commentary

It is a somewhat light day of soccer on the international calendar, as the Confederations Cup resumes and African World Cup qualifying takes center stage.

There will be a running commentary post for today's MLS action beginning at 4pm, so look out for that, but if you are following the international front (or South American soccer), feel free to share your thoughts, opinions and some play-by-play in the comments section below.

Enjoy the action.

    Spain v South Africa on ESPNHD Iraq V New Zealand on ESPN2HD for those wondering



    South Africa makes me smile. Damn good playing although their striker sucks. But at least they’re pushing Spain.


  • Scott in Houston

    Enjoying the Spain vs. South Africa game; it illustrates that a team with a lot of energy (South Africa) can hold their own against a team that does have a lot of skill but doesn’t have a lot at stake.

    Hey LiverpoolNo1, you failed to mention that four Reds are playing for Spain at the moment (Pepe, Arbeloa, Reina and Torres). Reina and Torres are the bright spots out there, and, in my opinion, Sergio Busquets, David Villa and Cesc Fabregas aren’t looking sharp at all.


  • Paul

    The best news of the day is the US team isn’t playing. No technical skills and tactical awareness – its getting embarrassing. These can’t be the best players we’ve got.


  • Paul

    Agree with beckster. Spain is looking a little sluggish, and they do have something on the line today. They are looking to set a new record for consecutive wins and tie the record for unbeaten streak.

    Did anyone laugh as hard as I did when Villa put that in the net after gets smothered on the penalty? SA is saying FML


  • Win

    Nothing, was more dissapointing than watching New Zealand celebrating a draw. I hope we don’t do that at the end of the Egypt game


  • understood

    its their first point in a fifa tournament…they are just growing as a soccer nation…let em celebrate
