It is a do-or-die weekend for some of the world's best players, and you will be able to watch most of it on TV.

Okay, so maybe you won't be able to watch most of it on TV, but with some help from your local soccer bar, as well as those reliable internet feeds, you should be able to see the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi and Thierry Henry as they try to keep their World Cup dreams alive.

  1. Zhirkov worst player on the field? That’s harsh. He looked pretty good when he almost got his team a penalty, after blowing by Boateng just before the half and forcing the youngster to hack him down just outside the box…

    The Soviet scourge just had a pretty good chance, Arshavin slams a shot right at Adler, wow another great save from Adler…

  2. Germany’s defense is playing an awfully high line and Russia has been one touch away from burning them twice in this half. I think there’s more in this game.

  3. “I like Russians though….just didn’t like Soviets.”

    That is a VERY important distinction. Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn (a Nobel Prize-winning Russian author who just died about a year ago) was adamant that the USSR was not Russian, and that Russian culture was oppressed as much as, if not more so, than all the others in the USSR.

    Anyway, I like the way Russia plays and for some reason I always find myself rooting against Germany. So go Russia. 🙂
