    The fact that World Cup news and highlights are competing for airtime with a hot dog eating contest is an insult to soccer fans.

      I thought it was a poke in the eye that Germany/France was on espn2. I agree with you could not believe the hot dog and lebron talk.

  2. Fred says:

    Thank you ESPN no Twellman!!!

    There is acres of space in the quality between him and Macca.

  3. Smokey Bacon says:

    Just finished 64 hot dogs. Settling in for hopefully a better game than earlier.

  4. jtm371 says:

    Colombia ATTACK ATTACK ATTACK keep the pressure on you will beat the back four. Remember what Bale did to Maicon exploit his lack of pace.

    Colombia 3 Brazil 1 ! GO COLOMBIA :)

  5. R.O says:

    Hoping for an exciting game and that Columbia doesn’t withdraw nor play conservative.

  6. R.O says:

    What a dog and pony show by FIFA regarding Anti-discrimination /racism. If FIFA (& UEFA) really cared about this they would take stronger action in Italy and other countries.

  7. Smokey Bacon says:

    Great to see fans mixing in the stadium. Terrific atmosphere.

  8. R.O says:

    I’m guessing Brazil has been designated as the home team in this game as Columbia is wearing Red Jersey and black shorts.

    Haven’t seen those colors before.

    Seen Brazil wear While with blue.

  9. Smokey Bacon says:

    Brazil need to be playing in blue shorts. The stupid kit rules are very annoying. Seriously, there cannot be anybody watching in black and white.

    • R.O says:

      A Brazilian friend has told me that Brazilians (players and fans) don’t like the blue. They feel it’s bad luck (winning % not good).

  10. jtm371 says:

    Is that Colombia or Real Salt Lake? Poor defending well you can’t sit back now.

  11. Smokey Bacon says:

    The stage might be too big for Columbia. This game could get away from them. Brazil look really up for it.

  12. Christopher Harris says:

    Better action in first 20 minutes of this game than the 90 minutes of Germany-France. Very open game so far.

    • R.O says:

      It’s like a derby.

    • Smokey Bacon says:

      The European teams are not looking good at World Cup. Their tactics look stale and outdated compared to the attacking flair of all the South American teams. So refreshing to see. Wonderful stuff. The tournament means something to these players. For the European teams it’s an inconvenience keeping them from the beach.

  13. Christopher Harris says:

    Colombia are wasting their chances. Poor free kicks. And they had the 3 on 2 earlier that Cuadrado wasted with a poor pass.

  14. Christopher Harris says:

    The way Colombia is playing, it’s almost as if Brazil has an extra man. The positioning by the Colombia players is poor. When Colombia breaks on the attack, there are too few options available for passes. But there always seems to be a Brazilian there to snatch the ball away.

  15. Tony Butterworth says:

    Wtf is the yellow card amnesty rule. Espn seems totally confused.

  16. Iancransonsknees says:

    Brazil boot the best player our of the world cup.

    The beautiful game.

  17. Brian says:

    Brazil keep winning despite not impressing. It’s Germany next and on current form Germany could have the edge. With Silva suspended that will be a huge loss to Brazil as well.

    Colombia had chances to equalize and played well and deserved at least a draw. They were one of the stories of this tournament and it’s too bad they’re out.

  18. Flyvanescence says:

    Bummed for Colombia but i wonder if anyone can dislike David Luiz. Such a classy guy who just looks like he has the time of his life on the pitch.

    • Smokey Bacon says:

      I thought the same. Nice gesture at the end with James.

      I am officially retiring Louise. He’s Luiz from now on . I can like him now he no longer plays for Chelsea.

  19. Abdirahman says:

    Brazil vs germany, it’s classic worth than final! But the host nation were not good enough of all their matches germany are surely the favourates now with this impressive form, with no silva and possibl’y neymar it could be long night for them in belo horizente.
