Enjoy & carry on regardless...

Brazil got the game by the referee not coping with the pressure I feel. I hope it won´t continue that way. Croatia looked good could easilly won this match. They had no trouble beating the Brazil defense.
 
But it feels wide open honestly so many teams that can win it maybe even England. If not even England believe they will bring home the WC maybe they can play within their limits and have a bigger chance to a surprise win?  I am happy Sweden isn´t there we have such a godawful team now. Except Zlatan of course to bad he can´t play for Croatia in the WC so he don´t have to be surrounded by wooden legs. 
 
New goal camera maybe it could be used to spot movie actions in the penalty box as well?

Well Spain got HUMILIATED by Netherlands 1-5
Yes what a melt down. But they will come back I am sure.
 
Nice upset by Costa Rica on Uruguay also.
Nice game Italy vs England. low pace due to the conditions but great anyhow. Should be a draw but no surprise Italy would win with their walking football.

Pirlo was only trotting around... you could base an Opera around him, pure class and a joy to watch.
 
in Italy's next game watch his movement off the ball, it's almost genius.

  Predictions for today's Germany vs Portugal match? 
 
I'd say Germany will win 2-0 
 
Germany to loose.. Portugal are strong on the wing and I don't think centerbacks being used as fullbacks against pacy wingers is a good idea..

did you forget about Lahm?., he'll snuff out Ronaldo on the right plus he'll be a big threat going forward... Germans to blitz this.

I did not forget about Lahm, but due to injuries to Khadiera, Schweinstieger and Guardiola playing Lahm in Midfield for Munich. It seems Low also, wants Lahm playing in midfield.
 
Also, Mertsacker and Hummels would start as Centerbacks. Boateng as right back and Howedes as left back. Incidentally, Boateng and Howedes are both central defenders hence I fancy Portugal.

Always watch pirlo. More impressed with his pass game and split vision and his shot ☺
