watching ESPN's coverage of Croatia-Mexico and can barely understand the broadcaster. Couldn't they find someone that speaks clear and understandable English to do the broadcast? ESPN has a stable of broadcasters to chose from......

I wouldn't be so sure of that. Mexico is on fire right now.

I would say we shouldn't forget how the Dutch were shipping chances to Australia just the other day.

Then again, we beat Chile with relative ease today. Chile had one shot on goal the entire game.

I'm not sure I'd rather play Mexico than Brazil right now. Mexico have certainly looked more impressive so far.

It seems that even FIFA doesn't know what an offside is...

Even Ghana is up near Germany thus cutting down on the amount of travel they have to do for their matches.
Didn't the teams choose their base camps before they knew exactly what stadiums they'd be playing in?

Relative ease? Obviously we watched two separate games because the Dutch seemed caged in. It took til the last twenty mins for them to break away. Chile had more than one shot too. I'd say chile lost in the final of the second half

Brazil today did a poor first half, and a nice second half.

The big difference was Fernandinho replacing Paulinho.

I hope Scolari puts Fernandinho in the starting 11 for the next match, instead of Paulinho.
