They're so full of ####, that would give Portugal roughly even odds in each game that they're clear favorites in.
Have they adjusted the SPI to reflect the absence of Pepe, Almeida and Coentrao?
The way they played, their odds might be improved by their absence.
i believe i read where the spi does NOT account for such absences.
SPI is not sophisticated enough to account for the red card to Portugal’s Pepe (who will miss the match against the U.S.) or the injury to the U.S.’s Jozy Altidore
Edit: The second best contender for this award might be England/Italy, though that game was fairly even and certainly many would say Italy had the better of it, scoreline or no.
I could google this but I'll ask anyway: what is the best way to watch EPL (or other European leagues) in the US? I really love watching the World Cup and the odd EPL game or MLS game I can pick up.
So I came away, as I usually do with Rooney, wondering what all the fuss is about.

Just watch NBC Sports. They show EVERY SINGLE EPL game. And become a Tottenham fan or risk being a wanker. I'm just sayin...
Also, don't become a Tottenham fan, we have too many of them around here.
Rooney wasn't great this year for Man U either.
Agreed, but let's be clear. "Not great" for Rooney means he finished tied for 4th in goals and tied for 3rd in assists in the PL.
I disagree with Randy about BeIN, I think they are pretty good they just don't have the league I am most interested in.
I've said it before, unless Rooney plays striker, he's a liability.
IMO, he's a second striker and not an advanced midfielder. While the distinction may be fine he can't be relied upon to be a midfielder. If your central midfielders are dominant (like in City or Juventus) then he works. United and England don't have those dominant midfields.
Will this Belgium-Algeria game be worth watching?
Watching that game did you get the sense England had any chance to score again? I didn't.
It just might be a big deal in the US.
Belgium: 1-Thibaut Courtois; 2-Toby Alderweireld, 4-Vincent Kompany, 5-Jan Vertonghen, 15-Daniel Van Buyten; 7-Kevin De Bruyne, 22-Nacer Chadli, 6-Axel Witsel, 19-Mousa Dembele; 10-Eden Hazard, 9-Romelu Lukaku
I don't think they even have a natural fullback on the roster.
It's just kind of weird, and these days fullback play is so important to the attack and none of the guys on the roster can really provide that.

And why pick Tottenham when you can bandwagon onto Liverpool?!
For whatever reason, he just doesn't play well for the national team.
I mean that was their problem last night. For all the possession they didn't generate much in the way of chances.
Fair to say of all the favorites, Belgium and Argentina have looked the most uninspiring?
It's not that Portugal and Germany will crush the US 8-0...though 4-0 is reasonable...it's that the US we saw last night might get 2 shots on goal.
Clearly the answer for Belgium is fewer Spurs.
It's not that Portugal and Germany will crush the US 8-0...though 4-0 is reasonable...it's that the US we saw last night might get 2 shots on goal. There is counterattacking and there is 2 guys trying to take on 4 while 8 other guys stand around trying to catch their breaths.
