There's no way Spain is going to lose against both Chile and Australia, so if both teams only get one point tonight, it's easier for us to finish ahead of them. Since I view Australia as the weakest team in this group, it would be even better if they beat Chile but a draw is more realistic.

Completely crazy. Good night tiki-taka. Totally different game in the 2nd half and beautiful goals. Ok, the 1-3 should've been disallowed.

Do you want to guess when the last time was...?

Surprised the Spain-Netherlands match was not a sellout. FIFA stated the attendance was 48,173, which is about 2,200 short of a sellout.

Perhaps, but the penalty was highly debatable as well so that makes it even

Chile 2-1 Australia at HT. Hope Australia manages to score one more

Yes, completely fabricated penalty. Completely ridiculous. The referees have made a lot of stupid decisions and it's only day 2!

Great Netherlands
Amazing and almost surreal victory, after 3-1 (which is dubious, it's true, yet also the penalty wasn't so clear),Spain almost disappeared.
Tomorrow (or better today night), Italy-England! Forza Azzurri!
