The Daily Hilario: World Cup, Day 14

New, comments

Your daily dose of off-topic shenanigans. Might want to take tetanus shot before watching more World Cup though.

Just when you think the World Cup couldn't possibly get any better, Luis Suarez happens.  And Greece's 93rd minute penalty happens.  And Colombia running amok happens.  WHAT COULD POSSIBLY BE NEXT AFTER THIS?

Group E and Group F are on offer today.  In Group E, France have all but mathematically qualified -- they would have to lose by several goals to Ecuador and Switzerland would have to win by even more against Honduras for the French to not make it.  The other three teams all still have a chance, though the Swiss are probably sitting prettiest with the easier matchup.

In Group F, Argentina have unimpressed their way into the knockout round already, so Nigeria will be hoping they take it easy.  A Super Eagles loss and an Iran win could potentially see the Asian country progress.  A 1-0 Nigeria loss and a 1-0 Iran win would create a dead heat for second, which would mean we'd get to see how FIFA go about drawing lots.

The way this World Cup's going, I'm willing to bet that's going to happen.
