    Hope that all sides continue to play the exciting football they played during the group stages and don't circle the wagons for the round of 16 and beyond.

    I think the ratings for viewership in the US will be dropping. :(

    Not to sure about that, but alas, I thought they might pull it out with that great set play. Dang that was close.

    I will continue, but it would be great to find a reason to really root for and/or against some teams still in the mix.

    It'd be amazing if the viewership in the US doesn't decline with the ouster of our team. At the same time, viewership of the over all will be higher than previous years.

    Univision will do fine. :)

    While the time zone, growing interest in the sport and other influences have made this year's world cup more popular, it is a lot easier for the country to get involved when there is some national pride at stake. Those who continue to watch may adopt a country (or root for their home country) or just watch for the love of the game. The extra viewers who joined in to root for the American team might watch the final game.

    I'm having a hard time to think that Brazil will beat Colombia, not the way Brazil has been playing the last couple games, While Colombia soared through all the games played, besides the little battle with Ivory Coast, in the first round towards the end of that game. While Brazil struggled with Mexico and Chile even Cameroon scored on them, Even if they do beat Colombia, the semifinal match would be tough against either France or Germany.

    I was so sad to see Neymar Jr. take the knee in the back; he was such a dynamic player to watch, and now he's gone, gone, gone.
    Did the perp. get carded?

    Nope no card given as it was an unfortunate accident. There was no malicious intent
