    That is one hell of a game. As a semi-final often over shadowed by the Final though, but a great game nonetheless :slayer:

    So far, so good. Go Mex. I think a draw is very possible. If they score the first goal, a win is possible too.

    the old man can't jump like before , neymar got a good foot above him haha

    mexico controlling very well so far

    brazil have no options going forward. fred is beyond useless, and there's no hope on the bench. can't believe that aside from neymar all the talk re: brazil has been defense: luiz, alves, marcelo (all of which end up galloping up field like lost children) and thiago silva ... at this point it would have made more sense to have ronaldinho come off the bench later in the game. he may be a bit heaver and slower, but my goodness that touch is silky smooth and he's having fun with atletico mineiro

    PS Be good to see how the host nation respond to a poor result/experience?

    PPS Is this the first time a team has had to change it's kit because of a clash with the ref's kit?

    PPPS I know it's all subjective...

    Haha neymar didn't score because of an outstanding save

    Fred can't even receive a pass. It's ridiculous

    ^^ Fred is at least good at diving in the penalty area.

    The ref should be wearing a Brazilian kit

    As far as 0-0 draws go, that was a damn good one. Mexico's goalie just won his team a point.
