Brazil is really good.  They do have two teams on their side of the bracket that can beat them.  Both France and Belgium are good enough.  Even Uruguay is capable.  I haven't given up hope that someone will knock them out.

Hats off to Japan for being epic.  They had Belgium on the ropes before Belgium got it shit together.  They had no business being in this game yet they went up 2-0.  Hopefully Belgium learns something from this a plays better in the next game.  Much awesomeness. 

  • Colombia (0)
  • England (1)
  • Belgium (0)
  • Mexico (0)
  • Croatia (0)
  • Portugal (0)
  • Denmark (0)
  • Sweden (0)
  • Switzerland (0)
  • Japan (0)
  • Argentina (2)
  • France (1)
  • Uruguay (2)
  • Brazil (5)
  • Spain (1)
  • Russia (0)

The final of the Belgium/Japan game was 3-2,  with all the goals coming in the second half.

Starts in three hours.   :o Nervous.

On this side of the bracket England, Croatia, and Colombia are the strongest teams left.  Whomever wins this game has a great shot at getting to the final.  Though neither the Swedes/Swiss are going to be pushovers.

Fun stuff.

Damn.  :(

England deserved to move on based on how dirty Colombia played in the first half.  Colombia played so much better when they cut the ugly shit out. 

Of course Colombia's best player was out because of injury.  Two World Cups in a row where Colombia was missing their best player.

  • Colombia (0)
  • England (1)
  • Belgium (0)
  • Mexico (0)
  • Croatia (0)
  • Portugal (0)
  • Denmark (0)
  • Sweden (0)
  • Switzerland (0)
  • Japan (0)
  • Argentina (2)
  • France (1)
  • Uruguay (2)
  • Brazil (5)
  • Spain (1)
  • Russia (0)

Ah well.  On to the Quarter Finals.

My prediction is France, Brazil, Croatia, England win in that round.

I hope that Belgium beats Brazil.

My brother and nephew and niece are English citizens.  So I guess so.  That and they have so many Tottenham players and that is my favorite team.

I would love to see a Belgium vs England Final.

Two really good games today.  Uruguay was, unfortunately, without out a main player and it showed.  While they threatened a bunch, they couldn't get a goal in without him.  I personally am glad to see Suarez out of the tournament, I hope this is the last time I have to see him in the WC.

Brazil vs Belgium was awesome.  Great game, with a lot of good attacks and scoring.  Not sure that the best team won as Brazil was really good and Belgium had some tremendous saves to keep them in the game.  Kudos to Belgium for pulling it out.

  • Colombia (0)
  • England (1)
  • Belgium (0)
  • Mexico (0)
  • Croatia (0)
  • Portugal (0)
  • Denmark (0)
  • Sweden (0)
  • Switzerland (0)
  • Japan (0)
  • Argentina (2)
  • France (1)
  • Uruguay (2)
  • Brazil (5)
  • Spain (1)
  • Russia (0)

I don't expect tomorrow's games to be as good.  Russia plays an ugly game, mainly because they are not that good.  Sweden is a good team, but they don't play a fun game.  I expect Croatia and England to move on tomorrow.

I saw kasferatu saying he wants a Belgium England final where Belgium wins.  I really hope Russia lose. I donít trust them and as they say, when someone who has played an entire game is out sprinting someone who just got into the game itís not a good look. And they are only ranked 70 in the world.

Screw Trump, Screw Putin, good riddance to Russia.  They got this far because they were given the easiest group.  They they beat Spain which I was ok with but they did it mainly by bunkering down.  Glad Croatia beat them.

  • Colombia (0)
  • England (1)
  • Belgium (0)
  • Mexico (0)
  • Croatia (0)
  • Portugal (0)
  • Denmark (0)
  • Sweden (0)
  • Switzerland (0)
  • Japan (0)
  • Argentina (2)
  • France (1)
  • Uruguay (2)
  • Brazil (5)
  • Spain (1)
  • Russia (0)

All the teams left are playing well and I won't be upset if they win.  Croatia is probably the worse team left at this point.

And the red devils are done.  Ah well.  France is playing really well.  Good balance, they are going to be tough to beat.  I don't think Croatia would stand a chance against them.  England could.

Wow...England did not get it done.  Croatia as a whole out played them.  They also played dirtier in the beginning but they settled down and were much more cohesive in the attack than England.

Good for Croatia.

  • Colombia (0)
  • England (1)
  • Belgium (0)
  • Mexico (0)
  • Croatia (0)
  • Portugal (0)
  • Denmark (0)
  • Sweden (0)
  • Switzerland (0)
  • Japan (0)
  • Argentina (2)
  • France (1)
  • Uruguay (2)
  • Brazil (5)
  • Spain (1)
  • Russia (0)

As a Colombia fan I am still upset at the lost opportunity.

France vs Croatia in the finals.  France is not a surprise and Croatia was considered a dark horse at the beginning of the tournament. 

Time to get on the Team Cro band wagon.  Though honestly I won't be too upset if France wins.  They have been playing very well.
