    That guy needs to stop biting his nails down that low.


    I mean he should probably kick the drug dealing first but definitely add it to the To-Do list.

    Fiji - South Korea 0-8 lol.

    There have already been a few matches. Surprising clean sheets between Brazil and south Africa and also between Denmark and Iraq. Argentina lost to Portugal 2-0. No matches scheduled for today.

    Brazil just drew 0-0 with Iraq and this time Renato Augusto missed an open goal

    As expected, they got booed off again.

    After the World Cup, Copa America, and now this. Surely Brazilian football needs to take a good hard look at itself.

    Why all of you would gladly blow each other for the next hyped up prospect and still give up Icardi for them. Their clubs aren't doing so great either. In South America at least the refs are giving them less favorable calls then they use to. They still have the talent but seems like their egos are too big for the team. Love how everyone wants Gabigol and never seen him
    Play but Medel was one of the best players in all of South America in the best team in South America the past 4 years and its like get rid of him he sucks!!!

    We are not now that strength which in old days
    Moved earth and heaven; that which we are, we are;
    One equal temper of heroic hearts,
    Made weak by time and fate, but strong in will
    To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.

    My memory of the pre-Dunga days is that Brazil was often a slow starter barely scraping its way through the group stages of major events, yet regulars in the semis or finals. The suspense is akin to whether the country could build its stadiums in time for the World Cup or the Olympics.

    Who here wanted to give up Icardi for a Brazilian prospect? Most people that want Icardi gone is due to the friction his agent is causing as well as they don't think he's a good fit for the team due to his lack of link-up play.

    Their team has barely any chemistry or tactics.. and those wonderkids don't really stand out, even Neymar looks average for them. Luan is the only one who is remotely impressive.

    Gone are the days where you could see Ronaldinho, Ronaldo or Rivaldo pull something crazy out of the bag when they were in trouble. Now it just looks like a bunch of overrated kids.

    Brazil has become more of individual divas. Everyone thinks of their own fame. It's like they have 11 Icardis in their teams. Brazil 2002 was one of the most exciting team I've watched in World Cup. The 3Rs with Cafu and Roberto Carlos on the flanks. They were unstoppable.

    I thought football in Italy had changed, but it seems that a zebra never changes its stripes.

    Surely you'd want your events to be done and dusted early. Get the hard work and nerves out of the way and then hit the piss in downtown Rio, and do a bit of sightseeing.

    You mean just adding an -inho and -gol to their names doesn't make them great?

    Football has changed a lot over the last 15-20 years. Individual talent alone doesn't lead you anywhere unless your players are ten times better than your opponent's, but that is not Brazil's case, they couldn't even win against iraq. This is so clear to anyone who likes football, only Brazilians seem to fail to understand that.

    A lot of this had to do with the fact naturally talented dribbles are becoming harder and harder to find, not just in Brazil but everywhere. Perhaps the exception being Argentina. The game is more team oriented and less about individual magic these days. Brazil need to catch up and stop ignoring their passing midfielders. Players like Thiago Motta, Thiago Alcantara, and Jorginho should all have been asked to play for Brazil.

    Brazil

    Not only there's the Brazilian ideology of One Man Doing it All With His Sheer Awesomeness, but also there's a lot of focus on young players in developing strenght and speed, and not too much on passing and football intelligence. I won't even comment on tactics, as most Brazilian coaches are outdated and barely get to keep their jobs during an entire season anyway, no time to impart wisdom to their players.

    Argentina OUT after a draw with Honduras. The center American team and portugal go to the next stage. Tonight 3 a.m. CEST denmark-brazil.

    Last but not least, fiji could be decisive for its group. as all the matches among the other 3 teams have been draws until now, the team who scores less against Fiji might be the one knocked out.

    - - - Updated - - -

    After the loss against south Korea, the winners of the previous edition, Mexico, got knocked out, too.

    Brazil winning 1-0. Goal by Gabigol

    All I've noticed so far. Gabigol is selfish and Gabriel Jesus couldn't score in a brothel.


    And just as soon as I say that he scores. Nice goal too.

    So who is the best team Germany?

    Their roster seems very good. I know the South American teams had a real hard time getting their best players because the Euro clubs told them to go sk a dic.

    Brazil Squad seems pretty legit just think they just can't handle the pressure of wearing the shirt. Also how did Spain or Italy not not make the Olympics? Sweden and Denmark were utter shit this cup.
