Possible Group C World Cup Outcomes

The two ties in group C today makes the group’s final two games very interesting. The good news is that the US controls its own destiny — a win against Algeria guarantees entry into the next round. However, there is a lot that can still happen, even with a US tie:

    That’s the first time I’ve ever seen a ball striking a players face getting a yellow card – and to the struck player. No comment on the disallowed goal because there was a lot of pushing and shoving happening on that last goal (although it seems Bradley was the worst fouled and the penalty should have been in the US favor). I’m not sure what to think of that referee.

    Refereeing is hard. I think maybe the ref is getting too much flack, except that, from what I’ve heard, he can’t seem to explain what he thought happened either, so it’s hard to give him the benefit of the doubt in that situation. Nevertheless, England tied, so the US can still determine it’s own fate.
