To be fair, it's not really fun to root for a team that has been eliminated in the tournament. There's a huge difference between rooting for a team and being a fan for a team.

If one thing really annoys me it's the amount of fake supporters I've seen.

Just a few days ago everyone was supporting portugal and thought Ronaldo was awesome. And right after Spain wins everyone thinks Ronaldo is stupid and Portugal sucks and starts supporting spain.

This really vexes me, because I hardly even watch sport, and now all of a sudden some of my best friends are arguing with me that Spain is the best blablabla and the teams I support suck because they lost.

At least I stay with my team through victory and defeat.

Well I hope you were supporting South Africa.

I was supporting South Africa, along with Argentina, England, and Portugal. Then I supported Ghana, because they were the only African country, but not once did I say anything bad about Bafana, which is what some of my friends did.

@Neo:

You have a good point there, but some of my friends who have always supported Portugal and other teams like England, now all of a sudden say that [insert team here] sucks and [insert winning team here] is awesome just out of the blue.

I really don't mind them supporting another team because theirs is out, but to support another team and then slander your old team is what ticks me off.

If Spain played the 1-team kind of play and practiced the mid-field press and control on players and the ball(kinda like the one they do in barca) Xavi and Iniesta > All Germany Mid-fielders anyday, and puyol and Pique weir in shape, and got lucky to finally score all those shots they waste, and they use the strong benchthey have in a good way (Fabregas, Silva, Pedro, Llorente and maybe Torres? Sometimes..etc). Then surely they will win. Also i'm sure Villa and Torres are better than Klose and Muller.

They took Messi and Teves out the game so I'm sure they do the same with Villa and a below par Torres.

Spain will be their easiest game so far based on what Ive seen.

Hmm, Messi's not a striker

Let me rephrase, Villa's not a midfielder.

@elite -Messi is a winger that plays as a play maker and a striker. Also villa and torres are not the only points I said. Unlike Argentina, Spain has the kind of midfielders and players that have the ability to be thrit-full any minute out of anywhere or out of any player (defence,midfield,attack) and unlike argentina, spain's play-makers can provide more help and danger than argentina's to their strikers. We have all seen when Xavi and iniesta lead barca to destroy europe's strongest clubs including lyon,man united, arsenal, bayern, inter (2-0,1-0), etc. They can do what ever it takes to reach to the goal when they're in full shape.

Adding all the points you Ignored elite.

I hope it'll be Netherlands versus Germany in the final. I think it'll be a great match-up.

I'm actually quite sure that'll happen.
