haba... be objective now. If you trip yourself, you fall...that's not diving. It's the ref that should not have given a freekick.

You know a team got no coaching whatsoever...........when you see panic 'written' on their actions, anytime the opponents closes on the 18m box.

This is sad to watch. Brazil again came out the wrong way, thinking they were going to press the Dutch and break them. Instead of being thoughtful and patient, they're again letting emotion and a desperate desire to requite their egos drive their play.

Well, it's taken me a whole WC to realize that half of these Brazilians are indeed average in ability. Some are good, but none aside from Silva and Neymar really stand out. Worst of all, they don't or won't play as a team. They did up to these last 2 games, but this is just hard to watch.

I grew up admiring and fearing Brazil. It was almost always the other team that looked slow, clumsy, and less knowledgeable. They used to visit Europe for high profile friendlies and win most games. Even Germany once tried to break the streak by scheduling a match in very cold weather.

Everybody knew Brazil was the standard.

This is a like a superhero that no longer is one.

:(

Cheers, Mate

And rightly so. Scolari knew it was going to be a 3-5-2, how does his nonsensical approach show any consideration for the opponent. No pressing back of the wingbacks, no contesting the midfield. Its ridiculous.

I just saw the replay of the second goal. David Luiz Enyeama'ed the ball but where were the other defenders.

I'm intrigued by what made me think that the Dutch would show empathy to the Brazilians by not putting up much of an opposition and allowing them to win third place. Methinks it's the African sentiment, very much like how some believe that Yobo should be "allowed" to reach his 100th cap at the expense of another competent SE and the cost to the team. Like how the mere of Mikel's abysmal performance in all of the encounters at the 2014 WC is the height of ungratefulness due to his past "achievements" or how all of Musa's past and future headless runs is justified by his two goals against Argentina.

:(

What we are seeing here is the direction Brazilian took after the loses in 1982 and 1986 World cups, especially 1982. They decided to go the European way with big physical players. If the search feature could work, I opened a few threads about this, many years ago.



Cheers, Mate

They thought he would head it out for a corner kick.
