Chile is ultra-offensive. If Spain plays properly they'll rape it.

WC is already great but the stadiums in Brazil are too small. The biggest is Maracana in Rio (only 76.000) even Europe has bigger venues.

Bad luck for us over here, but at least they went down fighting.
Not looking forward though to seeing a match though against the rampant Netherlands.

1-5!! That was nasty. I've found out some worrying things last evening:

1. Spain can only play tiki-taka. They have no plan B at all. It is getting outdated and too predictable.

2. Out of all 32 teams in WC, the worst (without possession) is Spain. Yes, even worse than Algeria, Iran or Honduras. That's because Spain without possession disappears and the Netherlands proved it.

3. My 1 year old nephew is a better goalkeeper than Casillas, Del Bosque should have called him instead

4. The Netherlands will get far, they have had a huuuuuge boost after this.

5. Statistically, when the current WC champion loses its first match, it doesn't even make it to the next round. (Example: France wins 1998 WC, France loses its first match against Senegal in 2002 WC, France gets kicked out on Group Stage, and France won 2000 Euro Cup so they were both World and Euro champions at the time, just like Spain is now.)

I don't support such rotten system this squad uses. Chile can score 288 goals and Australia can score 195 against Spain for all I care.

We'll have to wait and see how attendance goes. As of right now, only 2 out of the 4 matches have been sellouts; Brazil-Croatia and Chile-Australia.

I will say the atmosphere has been great all around. Massive amounts of fans from Mexico, Brazil (obviously) and Chile packing the stadiums. Australia, Croatia, Spain and Netherlands have all brought a good number of fans that have made great noise. Cameroon did not bring many fans.

What's the problem? 15,000 Aussies were in the stadium tonight, a non football loving nation. There will be tens of thousands of English fans no doubt - it's a far away destination but people are still making it in droves.
