Weak opening ceremony compare to South Africa. Must not have too much money left over after all they have spend so far.

Excellent game by Brazil, although the Penalty kick is arguable, they did come out very strong

The penalty kick was complete junk and never should have happened.  And he should have been tossed with a red card for the embellishment.

 

I love soccer, played for years, need to play again too..  but I cant stand the fake flopping for something like that.

 

And then they missed some real bad calls that should have gone Crotias way.  They just got screwed.  I think without that penalty kick the game would have ended tied myself because they wouldn't have played so aggressive and Brazil wouldn't have gotten that last shot in.

While I agree that the penalty kick was a wrong call, Croatia let loose (the defense) at the end to try to score leaving themselves vulnerable for a Brazil attack.

Yeah but they where cheated out of a goal tht should have counted and several other terrible calls.

The key is they wouldn't have been loose on defense had they not been down in the first place! It just sucked for soccer fans IMHO.

Having refereed at the U18 levels and above for several years, I tend to sympathize with the officials. The problem is unless you're standing right on top of the play, which Yuichi Nishimura was not, it is very difficult to know when the player is expertly simulating. Nishimura saw the arm come up on Fred's shoulder and saw Fred go down. Watching the replay from at least one angle I can see why it appeared to be a genuine foul.

 

Now, would Nishimura have given the penalty if it had not been a Brazil player who went down in the opening game of the World Cup hosted by Brazil in a stadium teeming with 60,000 overwhelmingly Brazilians? We can only speculate. But he had to make the call in an instant and he didn't hesitate. I can't condemn him for that, even considering the second-guessing of endless TV replays from every angle.

I would pick Spain to repeat, but they have a really tough draw. I will pick Lionel Messi and Argentina instead.

 

 

Brazil are favorites with Spain close behind

Certainly isn't looking good for Spain after this whooping today.


If you stop responding to them or put them on ignore, then eventually they'll go away.

Colombia after 16 years of being absent from the world cup, came out kicking (pun intended) and went to beat Greece 3-0. If they keep up their game, they could be the underdogs for this world cup.  What a play by Cuadrado when Armero scored.  James Rodriguez did ad awesome goal at the end!

Sure it will. Just before the 25 foot mark in front of the goalie, the break away man spins, flips the ball in the air with his personal gear, and lobs it in off the back of his head.....

Never saw Pele's amazing World Cup goals; I can't recall seeing anything more spectacular than Van Persie's.

Can anyone explain the difference between all the ESPN web based offerings - really, what I need to know is can I watch WC if I have only Comcast Internet?

Yes you can. If you have an iPad, iPhone or XBox, simply install & use the WatchESPN app on those devices.

 

If you don't have those devices, simply go to following website in a Flash enabled browser & rest is self-explanatory. (Do not choose events for channels ESPN or ESPN2. Always choose events for channel ESPN3, and you can watch it all.)
