  1. Chris,

    Please add Ref team (names and country of origin) to these open thread team lineups and TV commentators. Thank you.

  2. Unfortunetly i have to switch off i can’t watch it’s very late for us. I Hope chile w’ll win tonight and score more goals to make life more difficult for spain in their next encounter in maracana.

  3. Chile got the points but they won’t get out of the group if they like they did today. Both Holland and Spain will beat them easily. Maybe they took the foot off the pedal after going 2-up before 15 minutes had gone by. As for Australia they had lots of chances but their lack of quality showed. It’s going to be more difficult for them against Holland and Spain.
