Tonight ... San Marino vs England

I predict:      San Marino 0 - 6 England
You meant by half time, obviously.
Obviously. I'm not even watching the second half.
I couldn’t be arsed watching, so inevitable was the result. Just had a look, it’s 10-0 at the moment  :D

I'm going to miss the first half of today's Netherlands vs Norway game because I have an Irish lesson, so hopefully they save the best for last.

Seems like I didn't miss much. It's still 0–0 at half time. Turkey is also tied 1–1 with Montenegro. This is nail-biting. A single goal could topple the Netherlands from their throne in their qualifying group.

By the way, FAO Americans.
England’s battering of San Marino would be described by our press as a rout (pronounced “rowt”).
If you want to get somewhere you plan a route
(pronounced “root”)

But Americans pronounce “route” like we pronounce “rout”. Wrongly, obviously.

So my question is do Americans pronounce “rout” and “route” the same, or do you guys not use the word “rout” to describe a heavy defeat?

Thanks in advance.

In Australia, "root" is a slang term for sexual intercourse. Planning a root is very different from planning a route.

You're welcome, former colonial overlords.

Yes. I notice from Home and Away and Neighbours that you also use the word “but” at the end of a sentence when you should use “though”. Weirdos.

Australia is my second favourite country which we invented though and my favourite former prison colony.

Please don't insult me by calling me Australian. I've lived there long enough to be aware of the dialect, but I don't use such boorish localisms.

There is one word in Australian English, though, that should be more widely adopted. That word is "rort". It would be particularly helpful in the UK's current political situation.

Turkey is now up 2–1 against Montenegro, although provided the Netherlands simply holds the score against Norway at 0–0, they still have a good enough goal difference to qualify. The next 15 minutes will decide who goes to Qatar and who stays home.

The Netherlands just scored. Norway needs to score 2 goals in the next 10 minutes if they want a shot at Qatar.

@AATW we pronounce it rout. Once you add the 'e' the pronunciation changes to route.

Glad I could clear up this confusion

Rout is definitely pronounced "rowt".  Americans will pronounce route both ways.
Distance from Sydney to Perth - We don't know.
There's a mirror floating in the sky - Yup.

Still not as terrible of an idea as hosting the World Cup itself in the middle of a desert.

This is fair. But that decision was build on bribes, not just... poor planning.

Maybe the city of edmonton has some powerful lobbyists I'm just not aware of. Entertaining though

I went to see Bayern Munich play one time (my team were playing them, we got our arses handed to us).
It was winter and it was a pretty miserable day but one highlight was a massive snowball fight during half time.
