Watched the opening game Bra - Kro. And was dissapointed kroatie did not win. They played much better game then Brazil.

A schwalbe + japanese forune cookie = goal. Last years Brazil is running on lucky oil.

2morrow I will go to Museumplein Amsterdam to see the Netherlands vs Spain match - expected visitors 180.000 people!

The point is, what country would pwired choose !

Ha ha - good one Martijn. Yes I may live in Spain (17 years now) but I will always stay a Dutch guy ^_^

I always put my bets without doubt on the Netherlands when it comes to football.

Talking about it, I am not the only Dutch guy here. Heck there are even lots of dutch bars and restaurants here.

I have learned to know lots of dutch people here. We always read dutch newspapers to know what is going on in

"Holland" and have long discussions. Spanish locals call us "cabezas de queso" :lol: which means "kaaskoppen".

In some dutch bars here dutch people now show up with orange wooden shoes which are "klompen" in orange color :P specially for the Dutch - Spanish football. It is going to be a long orange week-end here :)

Kind boring sport you have here on earth. On my planet we also play a kind of "football", but it's called "airball". There's 42 players and the playing field is 3.1415 square kilometers. We use hover-boards and the ball is levitating. The goal is a circle and if the ball enters the goal, one player of the other team has to drink 1 cup of slime that contains 50% alcohol. Pretty damn fun. *hickup*

Kongondo, Which part of the UK are you from? I noticed you didn't mention England.

:D....I was coming to that...OK, let's not kid ourselves, England is not going to win the WC. But, I think our boys will do well this time because there is less fuss this time round around the whole English team, less circus, etc. There's really no expectation on our part. I think the young lads will do us proud nevertheless...they have no past baggage so to speak, are really good players and have nothing to lose. :-) C'mon England!

Tomorrow we are going to enjoy 3fingers VS Kongondo (Italy VS England)! Forza Azzurri! :P

First half Spain was better and the second half the dutch did great.. The system played is not old Dutch, but I don't think the dutch have the players to play the old system. 5-1 is to much for the game played. The Dutch have to watch out for arrogance. They need to keep prepared and stay focused.

@dazzyweb, tnx

Sad to see England lose last night but I thought there was a lot of positives.

They at least deserved to draw.

Stats speak for themselves:

England                         Italy

18            Total shots      12
8         Shots on target     5
8                 Fouls            12
48%     Possession (%)   52%
9              Corners            2
3                Saves             7
0              Offsides            7

Although I would have liked to see England win, for me I was more interested in 'how' England would play. I have never been prouder! So many positives and so many things to hope for for the future.  When is the last time you saw England play attacking football and not just sit back? When is the last time you saw England actually bring the ball forward through passing right from the goalie to the front rather than hitting the customary long passes? There's so much to look forward to; well-done lads! Congrats to the Azzurri :-)

      For our client Continental - a german based (but international selling) tire manufacturer we were asked to develop a campaign featuring their sponsorhip for the "FIFA World Cup 2014". We came up with the idea to connect a positive and fun "soccer like offline experience" with Continental as a brand and social media elements plus user generated content as a multiplicator.
      To encourage people sharing their experiences with others there also are pretty nice prices to be won (tickets to the World Cup in Rio  including flight and accommodation). In a glance we've developed everything related to this campaign: Idea, concept, logo, text, artwork, videos, content- and seeding strategy, a lot of print-materials, apps [...]. There even is a "real" stadium which can be either obtained at one of over 6000 partner stores in Germany or they may be downloaded and handcrafted by the players themselves. The campaign has ads in some of the biggest german print magazines (i.e. Stern Magazine).   The Campaigns Microsite www.paper-shot.de features: it's own blog with some external authors a retailer locator for finding participating partners (yup, that's >6k partner-pages in pw ) each having a custom set of assets which are shown to people coming from their banners or entering their partner-code custom user registration video/image uploads with a preceding approval process (the videos are first processed by a seperate media-server to serve the right formats to all devices, then reviewed and published by a team of editors afterwards) user-voting twitter & facebook integration for voting and login (not live atm due to some server problems with oauth & our reverse proxy) an unified api that makes it possible to use all of the microsites features in our apps for iOS and Android (for those interested: they are built with PhoneGap/Cordova upon the great ionicframework using HTML5 & angularjs). This was by far the biggest PW-Project we've done yet and we (again) were always happy we've chosen processwire because we definitely needed something flexible for realizing all of this features in quite a small timeframe (about 2.5 months "production" time for the microsite + the apps).    Modules used: FieldtypeCropImage - for obvious reasons FieldtypeMapMarker - for generating and fetching the lat/lng for all retailers and storing the adresses ImportPagesCSV - for importing the retailers as pages InputfieldCKEditor - because it's better (and better looking) than TinyMCE ModulesManager - PageEditPerRole - for managing external authors access  ProcessBatcher - bulk actions for retailers (saved us HOURS of work!) SchedulePages - show/hide blogposts by date TemplateDataProviders - MVC structure for our templates TemplateNotes - help pages for external editors TemplateTwigReplace - MVC structure & "better" templating  TextformatterHannaCode - custom tags for including external services like storify in blogposts TextformatterVideoEmbed - for blog articles VersionControlForTextFields - for "security" and backup reasons + some we've written for the project (they aren't very interesting ones to release to the public)
