Google translate suggests...

Catalan: què cony ha passat?

Basque: zer gertatu arraio?

Galician: o que diaños pasou?

Spanish: qué coño ha pasado?

It doesn't do Occitan. Trust Basque to be utterly different :-)

Which of those does Casillas speak?

van Gaal has said they only have a 20% chance of wining the World Cup. Defeatist mentality?

Good thing he's not American, he'd be taken to task.

Highest scoring world cup since 82 so far.

It's been great. I don't think I've seen one bad game.

/knock on wood.

This is tremendous. Through the end of Ecuador-Switzerland: 10 matches, no draws, 5 comeback victories, and only of 2 of the 20 teams who have played so far failed to score a goal.

Nice to see Honduras lose after spending 90 minutes trying to kick France off the pitch.

France looked really good.

There was an 82 minute stretch in the middle where Ghana dominated possession and USA defended like mad men (and Ghana missed a few good chances).

I was pretty entertained.

Until Ghana tied the score, I think it's what the US needed to do. The last thing I wanted to see was the US get in a stretched game with Ghana. Ghana had something like 20 shots, but hardly any were on net and for the most part, the chances weren't Grade A prime opportunities. Even the goal (certainly a quality chance), if Howard held his ground and didn't cheat to the far post, he makes that save.

Of course, without Brooks' goal about three minutes later, we might be griping about the strategy, but while it was happening, I was in total agreement. The frustrating part was seeing the US not being able to possess the ball for at least a couple more periods of time to settle the pressure a bit. A lot of balls were given up way too easily when given that opportunity.
