  1. Have to think the go the government will need to bend on something. WC must go on. Will they give up on 2016 Olympic Games ? It may be necessary to ensure pease at the WC.

  2. Did Samba won against Total Football today? It maybe too early to say anything since it’s just one game, but it was a scintillating performance which had the blueprint laid by Bayern Munich.

  3. This tournament has made me into a Neymar hater. My lord he goes down like a sack of bricks when ever a slight breeze touches him.

    1. This tournament made me love Neymar, but I know in a couple of months I’ll start to hate him when he starts diving for Barcelona.
