    Great game between Brazil and Chile! Chile were unlucky in penalties (Julio Caesar was pretty great though), but the better team won, IMO. Brazil was unlucky in not getting another goal during the run of play (Hulk was trying to make up for his error in letting that Chile goal go by himself during that second half)!
    In the second half, Hulk was the only Brazilian that played worth a damn. Brazil was lucky to advance.

    ACK!

    • They weren't lucky, Chile just didn't get forward all that much in Half 2. They outshot the Chilians at quite a quip.

        quip?

        Chile hits a crossbar and a post. Brazil was lucky that Chile didn't press harder in half 2. Plus being much taller than Chile helped also.

        ACK!

        • Hitting a crossbar and a post doesn't mean Chile was the better side. Brazil had a number of chances that they should have buried but didn't as well. One can argue that Chile was lucky it wasn't 3-1.

          The Brazilians had as many shots on goal as Chile had total shots (also Chile had 5 shots on goal the entire game).

          Though both teams were more interested in fouling each other, it seemed (most fouls in a WC game since 1990 Final, apparently).

          • Yahoo shows Chile having only 2 shots on goal and 13 for the game, 23 and 6 for Brazil.

            • ESPN had same total shots 23 to 13, but higher shots on goals (13 for Brazil, 5 for Chile).

              • I'm betting Yahoo didn't update shots on goal for the second half or extra time.

                ACK!

                  Belgium are currently experiencing a golden generation and have the finest team in their countries history. They've been fairly slow to get started this world cup but the amount of talent is scary.

                    Are they as good as all the other group winners? Some pretty good teams there.

                        Only because drawing is an option.

                        No team lost more than than they won and went through. It is just about possible but extremely rare. Just as possible is winning 2/3rds of your games and going out.

                            Fairly slow ?

                            • Personally I am a bit frightened of Belgium. They were considered a dark horse team to go far in this World Cup before the tourney started. But hopefully the US can get their issues figured out and snatch a winner!

                              • Don't get me wrong. I think there is a big chance Belgium will win tomorrow.

                                I am just so disappointed all those worldclass players can't bring attractive football.
