    Anyway-

    Ronaldo is hurt.

    Reus is now out for Germany.

    This group just got a LOT easier... but I didn't think it was impossible like most before-hand.

    Ghana is tough, but I still think US has good chances to advance.

    That was a terrible penalty call that was given to Brazil. I guess the host Nation has to get a freebie..

    Brazil didn't really impress me at all today. If not for the piss poor performance by the Croatian goalkeeper, it would've been a tie or even a Croatian win.

    Agreed.

    Brazil will get the calls throughout the cup, can't act surprised anymore even though that call was horrendous. But if (when) the US is eliminated I may just end up going for them, host nation and Neymar and all that.

    So Spain vs Netherlands at 2 CT tomorrow is going to be great. Other two matches are meh but I'll probably end up watching both.

    Why are people only looking at the PK penalty? What about the one on Croatia that took their goal away?

    So altogether- Brasil had 3 unearned goals out of 4.

    But to say they weren't impressive? 60% poss. 9 shots on goal.. you get that many shots on goal, and it's rare you'll lose.
