Hope I'm correct in reading the irony there, we lost interest before half time. Looking forward to the Belgium game tonight as one of our members has gone out on a limb with them, can't quite remember who

Well, coffee stop over, second school run of the morning to do.
Dunno if any of you noticed that Joachim Löw and the assistant manager always wear identical clothing. Think it was in the Daily Mail or someone on FB who spotted this ....

Portugal, my Work World Cup Sweepstake Team, were absolute rubbish. Nani continued his poor Man.Utd form and Ronaldo appeared to have been overwhelmed by the curse of winning the Ballon D'Or.

Didn't watch the Iran v. Nigeria match ...... due to security alert at Battersea Power Station .... turned out a gas canister was leaking so train services were suspended until resolved. Atleast I managed to get home to watch Portugal v.Germany on ITV+1 from the start albeit one hour behind. I refused to look at the online news or go onto FB just in case I saw the final score before it finished!

Wow, that must have been a bit worrying Fen, glad it was nothing more serious and to be honest, you didn't miss much! I've now seen the highlights and gutted I didn't get to watch the full match.

Are you watching the Belgium match tonight - had a tip from a questionable source that they might be one to watch

With the way Fellaini has been playing for Man Utd who'd have thought he would pop up and score the first Belgian goal! Seems he is back to what he is good at and in a red shirt but not Man Utd.

I missed that one, will need to watch it on the highlights, sounds as though he's back on form and means my questionable source isn't so questionable after all....

Daughter has Mexico, England, Switzerland and Honduras in her clubs sweepstake, so she'll being watching the next one

Playing against a flat back 11 is tough for anyone, unless I missed one whilst going for a comfort break Algeria had 3 shots on goal and one of them was the penalty which Vertognen never needed to give away...

Showed discipline and patience to get back into it with well measured subs from the manager, still room for improvement but smart enough even if it wasn't electric football, but I don't expect them ever to be electric.

Fellaini never got a chance to sit in that little hole for Man U he was always played a little deeper which is why to my mind he looked so weak.

Brazil sure are finding mexico hard to break down but I think Fred going off is a good thing as he hasn't really performed....
