I had a wee look at the groups and, just for a bit of fun, picked out the two teams in each group I think will qualify for the next stage. As much as I wish England well (no, really rolleyes.gif ), I can't see beyond Uruguay and Italy topping their group.

Since Brazil played Scotland in a friendly, I rated Naymar as a petulant young man with no manners and, despite his soccer skills, no class. I have had to revise my opinion, to add dirty cheat to his attributes. He would do well from watching some videos of Messi.

On the football front, last nights game was fairly typical of an opening encounter. The penalty was a complete joke though. As for Brazil, can I change my prediction laugh.gif

Yep you can sure change your prediction on this opener!
There was more action outside the stadium than inside.
As for the opening of it, what a load of bullshit!
Done nothing to please the poor of that country, South Africa comes to mind of those games.

Bored with it already!! rolleyes.gif

It just seems like the big business of the thing has now drowned out the game.... everything is just about money nowadays and the poor people who are rioting wont be seeing any of that money thats for sure.

Brazil are cheats.... but whats new there??

I'm sorry, but I can't get excited about a sporting event where a government have spent millions funding it yet it's people live in squalor and deprivation. Where drugs are rife and life expectancy is low. But thats enough about the Commonwealth Games. the world cup has just started!

The Dutch well and truly sunk the Spanish Armada!
Biggest defeat (would you believe it) since Scotland gubbed them 6-2.
Surprised Jagz that Australia has managed to score a goal.
Will be interesting to see the second half.
Yes I enjoyed seeing the Dutch putting 5 in the Spanish net. wink.gif
