The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

It’s no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    Eng - Swe
    1 - 1

    EDIT: Eng dominated the first 45, and scored one. In the second Swe took over more and more got a semi lucky goal, and from there on took over the game and had a few really good chances to score, but like always they **** it up.

    Both team should be glad to get away with a draw.

    The swedish team should send Ljungberg home and use Slatan as forward. Ljungberg didn't **** this game up like he usually does, but don't fear he WILL in the games to come.


    Arg - Nig
    1 - 0
    Didn't see it.

    Argentina is good. Nigeria kind if hung in there though.

    Poor Chigs and Hulk...England tied.

    Emerson of Brazil is out of the cup he got a dislocated shoulder.

    Oh and I can't wait to watch tonight's game...Mexico vs. Croatia...Viva Mexico!

    I feel so ashamed i look up to Rivaldo as one of the world's best players. He is such a fraud.

    There was NO reason to try to get someone sent off after 93 minutes when you're winning 2-1. What a prick.

    And the penalty they got was NOT a penalty. It was outside the box.

    Either way, that game was still the best of the tournament so far. And Ronaldo was great.

    I swear, Brazil play with only two defenders. Cafú and Roberto Carlos are wingers!

    Italy is currently handling Ecuador with ease. 2-0 thanks to Mr. Vieri...

    A 2-0 lead with the best defense in the world is automatic.

    Forza Italia!

    Caught a bit of the england game...they looked a bit weak.

    rivaldo is a dickhead for what he did, and that ref was the worst i have seen yet this worldcup.

    as for italy and ecuador, the 1st half was good, italy were running circles around them in style with nice one touches, but the 2nd half just sucked, i was hoping for 4 - 0 wich they could of done if they tried.

    I agree, he IS a dickhead.

    Albeit the dude shouldn't have booted the ball off him, but it was no where near his face and FIFA should revoke that red card. The guy was actually one of Turkey's best players all game.

    South Korea was impressive!
    Their physical condition is superb. They are able to give the maximum of their efforts until the final whistle.

    I used to believe that Poland was a better team though.

    Anyway,Argentina is still the number one candidate for winning the cup. Spain and Italy will have to fight to secure a place in the final. France and England have no chances. Brazil could secure a place in the final only if the refs want it too. The game between them and Turkey was a joke..
