    Misspelled, I only DISagree with Olic's goal. I think it was a foul on Cesar.

    James had the space he wanted in the other matches because he played against weak teams. He was *****in', that became clear in his complains and his posture during the match. If you see Messi playing, he's beaten up every single game, but he keeps trying. James is a good player, but too egocentric and naive.
    Olic didnt touch Cesar and headed the ball, but youre heavily biased.

    Cesar reached the ball first and Olic dislocated him when he jumped. That's basics about fouls over a keeper, you can't dislocate him on air. But fine, that's your opinion then.

    Scolari playing mind game. He'll be fit. He's not allowed to not be.

    I still believe it's minds games. They'd usually want to get a second option before confirming it. At club level, it takes a day or 2 before confirmation.

    Yes, except for the fact there's no way in hell it actually tales 2 days to diagnose a break. Any competent doctor can spot that on an x-ray in seconds. And, with the current climate in Brazil and with how Neymar is given demiGod status, I find it remarkably hard to believe that they'd fool around with something like this, nor take 2 days to diagnose him.

    Scolari said same thing within minutes of the game finishing whilst 'he was on way to hospital'. They were too quick to get it out to the press imo for me to have 100% faith they're not playing mind games. It's not the first time stuff like this have come out.

    Tbh, Neymar did look like he was in serious pain when he got kneed.

    The news reports all say is it fractured vertebrae. He would also have been looked at pretty quickly so I don't think the reports are off.

    The Germany - Brazil game will be interesting.

    I think the Brazilians are poorly set up but the Germans didn't look great in attack and look a bit shoddy when dealing with speed at the back.

    Can only blame the ref. he had no control over the game, let it get out of hand and it was only a matter of time before the Colombians gave it back to Brazils star player.

    Coming from someone who supported Brazil, Fernandinho should have been booked at least 2 times in that match, he was getting outplayed by James and yet he always dragged him on the floor.

    - Germany lacks of pace in attack as Muller is not the greatest in counter-attacking but very solid at a normal striker position. That being said, Germany is rock solid in midfield and defence is pretty standard.

    I can't believe that Scolari doesn't see the hypocrisy of complaining about Neymar being "hunted" by the opposition when it was blatantly obvious that Fernandinho was tasked with fouling James Rodriguez at any opportunity.

    The referee let the match get out of hand by being too soft on players in the first half, which basically told them that they could get away with anything short of assault. Zungia's challenge on Neymar was disgraceful.

    I thought that Brazil were playing more fluidly then they had played in previous matches, but to secure a victory they resorted to constantly fouling Colombia whenever they posed a threat.
