Brazil other than a 10 minute section do not deserve to win, and let's face it they didn't deserve to win the first game either and the ref should start booking them for diving!

The dive cracked us up, his face looking for the ref was like a kiddie looking for his mum "look mummy, I fell, did you see it mummy" at least the ref didn't let him away with it this time and agree, they need a deterrent.

Guillermo Ochoa, Mexico's goalkeeper, was brilliant .... probably worth a few more quid now than before the World Cup.

He will probably earn a few more quid but he is out of contract so is available for free, he did have a great game but the centre half were also superb!

Oh, I'm getting better at this stuff as I said the exact same to hubby during the match. As LL said, free at the moment after Ajaccio didn't sign him up again.

Oh dear. That was the only game of footie I watched. I think (for what its worth) that had it not been for Saurez we would have won.

Yes sometimes it feels all pretty predictable. Still we watched it on the big screen at Ovaros Ter in Veszprem. Very civilised. Will go and watch some of the main matches there. I think the World Cup final stages also coincides with the Beer festival

Being disappointed whilst watching England just becomes normal

Hey oh, great atmosphere in a bar in St Malo, just me and the bar man cheering on England and he was only doing so as he bet on them!

Back this evening for the France game

I had my soccer mum friend round with her daughter, snacks and drinks followed by disappointment.

Yes Pol, wouldn't wish it on anybody but if only Suarez had taken another few days before being 100% fit. That said, I didn't think it helped them playing Rooney in the number 10, yes he scored but that was laid on for him. They were so pedestrian ,no invention or passion, the only time there was a spark was in the Italy game and that came from Sterling, Sturridge and Welbeck. Putting Rooney in 10 seemed to dampen what little there had been.

Hope England put on younger players, preferably under 25, next match to give them some experience.

Do you know if they also show the late night matches there? I'd like to watch Belgium-S. Korea there this week but it's at 10PM.
