That was my reaction too. Especially after what was revealed about the Cameroon team. Soccer's a dirty sport.

Brazil got annihilated. They were obviously not prepared for Germany and missing two key players did not help any. With the third German goal the Brazilian fans were totally stunned out of their minds.

-Cheers.

eh. I just don't trust the "corrupt cup". Soccer as a whole has always given me a dirty vibe.

No one can ever convince me for one second Brazil threw the game. No way, no how. In another sport, maybe. But there is just no way in ever loving heck you're going to get the National Team or even part of it to agree to throw a game on their home soil. During a WC. On their home turf. The first one they've had since 1950. Just no. Not even a little, no matter how corrupt the sport may be. The nation and their players are way too prideful - to the point of annoyance - about their team and football.

No way this game was fixed. You would have to pay the players millions upon millions. They're already mostly millionaires making 100+k a week. No way would they care for a guy waving a couple hundred thousand to lose a game.

This does not bode well for the Dutch.
