Anyone following it?
I am, and will be. Even though I am nearly 60 this is only my sixth World Cup to follow.
I wanted Brasil to win last night, but several calls seemed dodgy to insure a home team win.
The yellow card that gave Brazil the penality show for their second goal seemed a huge mistake to me. The referee really blew that one. Also the Refs. blew it when they gave Neymar a yellow card instead of a red card for a flagrant foul earlier in the game.
And the earlier yellow card that should have been red.
Brasil should have won, as expected; but without help from the officials.
Looking forward to today's Spain v. Netherlands match.
When that happened, I thought that was Croatia' s end. Too much to come back from mentally.
I have been looking forward to the WC for some time now. Soon as the yellow card that gave Brazil the PK came I knew it was business as usual with FIFA. Doubt I will watch any more matches. Even if FIFA were not one of the most corrupt organizations on the planet very few refs desire to call a match, but rather desire to be the star of the show and turn all eyes on themselves.
Officiating quite poor in the Mexico match so far as well.
Wonder if the Manaus pitch will be ready for the England match at the weekend. Don't fancy our chances much; I hear the pilot of the England team's plane offered to keep the engines running for them...
Not sure if accurate, but I heard that the U.S. manager does not think they will make it out of their group. Maybe in Qatar...
I hope he didn't say that. It would be inexcusable.

It appears that I was a bit off.
Better, but still not wise. How about something like 'certainly, we are not the strongest side in the tournament. But I certainly think we can make it out of our group, and if so anything can happen.'
I think I have decided who to support
Presumably not Spain...:smilewinkgrin:
I always gave liked the Netherlands, but forgot how much
1-4. Wouldn't it be something if Spain did not get out of the group stage? Not predicting, but it is an interesting thought.
I didn't predict this one. I picked Spain 3-1 even though I like the Dutch
Admit I thought 2-1 for Spain. Also prefer Holland.
