Hi folks, I've got 2 spare PS3 EU codes available. If anyone's interested just send me a pm and I'll pass them on!

Edit: All gone

With that, Messi prolly didn't deserved the golden ball

Yeah, I'd definitely agree with that. I just wonder though: they're most likely to pick someone from a team from the final 4 teams (even more likely if they're in the final). So what options are available? Germany are a team, to the point that there almost isn't a stand-out player - in a weird way I feel like it makes it harder for one of them to win.

Personally, I would've given it to James Rodriguez. It's a shame we didn't get to see him play a couple more games.

Behaving like a common internet troll? Really?

Also Dan, if you're reading this, people are not mentioning pro wrestling during your sad trolling attempts because they think wrestling is a sport. They mention it because they think pro wrestling is terrible / way worse than football.

It's not funny, it's the kind of behaviour people would be reprimanded for on Giant Bomb by the mods/staff.

You know, I completely agree. Deleted the tweets as well. I've tried to tone down the heel-y trolling stuff recently, but soccer has been one of the things I've been a bit of a dick about my whole life. That's the way my dad always talked about soccer, and I guess some of it rubbed off on me.

Gonna try to cut that stuff out, which should be way easier now with the World Cup being done. It's not necessarily funny, and I shouldn't feel the need to get on some anti-soccer soapbox whenever I see people talking about it or paying attention to it. Apologies for being a dick, and you're totally in the right to call me out on it. Thanks!

Fair play, Dan. Respect and admiration earned.

I'm really surprised that Romero's got a nomination for the Golden Glove. Didn't think his performances were as good as Ochoas have been, or even Howard to be honest.

It's like playing FIFA on amateur difficulty against your dog.

This is insane. Brazil look like they've genuinely forgotten how to play football. A complete dismantling...

Fair play to Yedlin, he's put in an incredible shift since coming on.

Fantastic effort from Costa Rica. I wonder how well they'll be able to recover physically before the Quarters though - they look absolutely shattered out there.
