    I have to admit this is by far the weakest world cup in the history of world cups.

    I cannot believe Brazil STILL can't score in the Cup. They've come so far downhill, it's sad. They'll get smashed by Spain or Portugal, or any of the REAL alphas.....

    Costa Rica has great football, they have potential, what they lack is management, the Costa Rican football federation is corrupt and they put just about anyone as a coach, for some reason they have not learned that former good players do not make good coaches all the time, look at what happened in 2014 when they finally got a real coach, now they put a drunkard as coach, the cycle continues, Pinto pushed those guys to work hard and they perfomed well because of it in 2014, now they perform like crap, probably because the new "coach" has no clue and lets the guys do what they want, you can't aspire to be great when you are not willing to put in an effort, they can't rely on luck, not at this level.
    Simply "wanting" to win is not enough.

      You're right, throwing oneself at the ground and appealing to the ref is good football.

    The sooner they teach that spoiled brat that he is dispensible he will stop fooling around. Brazil can win without him easily. He destroyed the momentum in the last game. He hurt them.

      Brandon Perkins that’s why Neymar scored and without Neymar they wouldn’t have made history in winning the olympics and coming back 6-1 right oh and other stuff he has done

    • Brandon Perkins
      Brandon Perkins 27 days ago

      you know what I cant disagree with you man. he needs to understand its a time to play around and a time to be serious. he's out there on the pitch and acts like he's God. he's changed a lot after that transfer to PSG, and correct me if I'm from but it seems to me like his ego is getting in the way of his passion and love for the game.

    • Jonathan Drake
      Jonathan Drake 27 days ago

      Ronald Donald yeah no if I remember correctly without Neymar in his last season in Barca the would have never beaten psg Messi would have missed the penalty and would have missed the freekick

  • Marcus De Villiers

    Brazil is not Brazil right now. But the fact is once they get in a gear that's it. Silva needs to be captain. He is respected and organises the team. Neymar will get back into his playing form and that's gonna be it.

      The First Ever Black Person yea and no one was looking forward to Iceland but now they have re invented a new style in long throws that a lot of teams are starting to use. No one really played sweeper keeper before neuer or at least it wasn't popularized before he did it. Who knows maybe a south asian team can bring their own style and succed.

    • The First Ever Black Person

      Jeff Darnell why do Spain and Portugal not have anything to prove? All the teams are trying to win the cup..they're all trying to prove they're the best in the world.
      It's been 4 years since the broken squad of the last world cup and Brazil have lost just one game in the last 23, (against Argentina 1-0 in a friendly). They've scored 49 goals and conceded just 11. On the way, beating Germany twice, being the first team to qualify for this world cup and are on a 13 game unbeaten streak.
      What more do they have to "prove" that other teams don't?

    • Jeff Darnell
      Jeff Darnell 27 days ago

      Rome1017 Portugal has absolutely nothing to prove. Neither does Spain. Brazil needs to get out and kick some ass. I'm pulling for them, make no mistake. I just get disgruntled by teams I KNOW....can do better.

      You're talking about brazil playing poorly. That they wont do well against these "larger" teams...
      Portugal barely scored 1 against Morocco
      Spain got extremely lucky to get 1 vs Iran
      France scraped a goal and a penalty against Australia and got a deflection for an easy tap in against Peru
      Argentina got 1 vs Iceland
      England scraped a 90th minute win against Tunisia
      Germany couldn't even get a lone goal against Mexico
      Have you been watching the same world cup? Because Brazil just won 2-0 vs Costa Rica.
      The same Costa Rica that beat Uruguay, Italy, free with England to knock them out, knocked out Greece and then only lost on penalties to Netherlands.
      You may have forgotten their keeper is Keylor Navas, the same keeper that's won 3 champions league trophies in 3 years

    Costa Rica is kinda like Switzerland in the sense that they're very organized. We'll see, I'm not as sure if Brazil is just going to run them over from start to finish. Maybe in the 2nd.

      Julius C. There a solid team but I think they should win I knew Switzerland was going to be a problem, but it all comes to that Serbia game. Because if Serbia wins.....Brazil might not make it out.
