I wonder where Miamifootball is? He was calling The Netherlands a third tier football nation before the WC started

Who's the Dutch General? Van Persie gave him his captains arm band. He's a loyal fan and has been to all their games

How about Argentina vs the Swiss? Switzerland hit the bar in the last minute too. Nobody is talking about that.

Yes, clearly Brazil was not the best team in this WC, but I don't really see them behind anybody else than Germany. The 7x1 massacre hardly reflect the reality, it was a bold but huge tactical mistake that caused panic and the Germans took advantage of it. If Brazil plays against Germany 10 times now, I bet the Germans would win 7-8, but never again by the same score. Brazil alway carries so much expectation in other nations, you can feel in the commentators, and everybody around you, that unless they win with a show time performance, people think they are not playing well. It's ridiculous.
Care to amend this claim?

That was nice of him.

Congratulations Netherlands, well done.

V England 4-1
V Argentina 4-0
V Portugal 4-0
V Brazil 7-1
