Of course only the English complain about the weather, but captain Philipp Lahm told ARD that Germany had found the conditions in Salvador tough.
"The first half was brutal," he said. "It was unbelievable -- especially directly in the sun."

I just realised that Real Madrid players are having a great world cup so far..

Anyway, why is this match primetime.. USA-Ghana ditto.

Loads of Pardew potential in these matches though..

So Mick Dundee, who looks about 70, is in a movie studio and the bad guys are chasing him, but he's picking them off one by one

Nigeria are shit. You don't expect much from Iran, but Nigeria haven't even threatened them. Argentina and Bosnia should make it to the next round easily.

Nigeria : 168M inhabitants
Iran : 77M inhabitants

Football is the most popular sport in both countries....how the hell can't they find better players than this ?!

I'd expect both to be getting d!cked around by a country from the Balkan with just 3.8M inhabitants ...

Population and popularity are not the only factors involved. They should have strong national leagues, money, structure, etc.

african teams have lacked creativity so far. Seems like they can only score from crosses.

dissapointed in nigeria. thought they would get out of this group. but they played like many teams ive seen in the african cup...chaotic at times.

ghana: early goal was a real blow. lets see how they deal with that.

Piece of important information. Canada is involved in every game just like the 2010 World Cup they supply the grass seed and train 266 local technicians how to grow the grass.

That was just after Pirlo hit the post. I had seen somewhere a longer video, but now I don't remember where.

I was impressed with Mexico in their first game. Two legit goals disallowed. A pity. Played very well. And there will be around 10,000 Mexicans tomorrow, I heard.

I like Mexico. I want you to qualify with us. I hope Brazil don't beat you more than 4-0, so that you'll be better off for the last game against Croatia.

I was joking about the 4-0.  Smile 

To tell the truth, I fear a loss tomorrow. Daniel Alves will play. You'll have fun in the left.  ok

I'm looking forward to the match Belgium and Algeria. Let's see if Belgium can live up to the hype or if they will be like Colombia in 94 or Portugal in 2002.

According to some previews, Van Buyten will start. He might do well against weaker opponents, but his pace and agility aren't even close to sufficient for taking on world's best forwards in the knock out stages. Vermaelen would be a better option. IMO Alderweireld and Van Buyten are liabilites in the Belgium starting XI.

BTW Belgians are weird. They walk shirtless through downtown. I've never seen it before here in Belo Horizonte. No joke.

But he'll be fine if he comes up against Fred?
