I know, no other country had such a large presence. But again I'm just talking about the ones who did that and there wasn't any major incident with people from other countries. The Japanese, for instance, stayed after the game in the stadiums to clean up food and stuff they dropped during the game, amazing. The security report being delivery to Fifa is not looking good for the Argentina fans. They also left with 2 million reais in traffic tickets unpaid.

OK, I see you're not generalizing now, although your first post about this seemed to me too general.

As regards this:

Y! SPORTS
The title of the article is: Rampaging Chile World Cup fans bust into Rio venue

Anyway, I condemn these kinds of behaviors from whatever country they come from, that's for sure.

What the German and Argentinian players did is just a bit of banter, it's part of football. Since when did people become so sensitive?

I'd suggest getting out the top goals of WC or the various leagues that are out on dvd. Non-stop action until the 'action' begins again in a few weeks!
You get to see great players doing what they do best. I like to watch the one by Bergkamp over and over.
The coordination involved in that one is incredible.

Van Basten has retired a long time ago, I think you meant Van Persie. His head goal against Spain was a beauty, it takes a lot of skills to score a goal like that. It was my favorite too.

Best goals:

1.) Van Persie against Spain
2.) James Rodriguez against Uruguay
3.) Tim Cahill against Holland
4.) Asamoah Gyan against Germany
5.) Jermaine Jones against Portugal
6.) Messi against Iran
7.) Daniel Sturridge against Italy (the whole play was amazing)
