World Cup chaos continues, history on the horizon in Qatar I The Rush

Argentina overcame its rocky start at the World Cup to advance out of the group stage after a 2-0 victory over Poland. In a competitive Group C, Mexico failed to advance to the knockout stage for the first time since 1978. History will be made in Qatar as an all-female officiating crew will take the field for the Germany vs. Costa Rica match and Cristiano Ronaldo is reportedly being offered a historically large contract. Plus, the Boston Celtics sidelines were graced by royalty… quite literally, as Prince William and Princess Kate of Wales sat courtside at the TD Garden, taking in the Celtics’ win over the Miami Heat.

JARED QUAY: Damn, that's a lot of dollars. And you know who really is familiar with that kind of coin? Wait a minute. Is that British Royalty will and Kate at a Boston Celtics game?

- The British are coming. The British are coming.

JARED QUAY: Yeah, where is Paul Revere when you need him? Surprisingly, the Prince and Princess of Wales were only lightly booed by fans at the Garden. How are you going to be in the birthplace of the Boston Tea Party and not chant a full [INAUDIBLE] no taxation without representation.
