    If I ever get to score a goal for my country (US) I’d go mental Balotelli style of course.

  5. Abdirahman says:

    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.

  6. goatslookshifty says:

    If Tim Cahill and Jedinak are your top players, you are in for a long tournament.

  7. Flyvanescence says:

    Daniel Mann is excellent. Shades of both Darke and Tyler in his style.

  8. Iancransonsknees says:

    Have to mention that the pitch looks terrible when you see close up.

  9. Martin J. says:

    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.
