Lat night's games - Brazil 2 - Mexico 0.

Poor game as both sides struggled to find top form.

Neymer scored but shortly after was a disgusting attempt to get a player sent off. Clearly he was not touched but he went to ground and from his actions you would have thought he had been electrocuted.

Referee took no action !!!

Belgium 3 - Japan 2

For me this has been the best game in the Tournament. Both teams attacked each other with Japan going two ahead. Belgium brought on substitutes which changed the game. Japan couldn't cope with the height of Belgium players and Belgium scored three with the last goal scored in the final seconds.

This game was played in a sporting manner with very few cynical fouls nor playing for time etc.

Felt sorry for Japan.

Getting ready for tonight's England v Columbia game. Fingers crossed.
