Re: Official 2014 FIFA World Cup Thread

So Spain got spanked by Netherlands that would be considered a pretty big upset, no? 5 goals is a lot too. shoelessjojackson I guess your team ain't off to a very good start.

Illusion Thanks for the thread. I will be checking it regularly. I will be watching the United States when they play Ghana. I know they probably don't have a chance to win it all but one can hope.

Spain have a massive problem, that being the majority of their team have only just finished either a Champions league, First Division or Europa league campaign.
They will be absolutely on their last legs even before kick off.
They also the team with the biggest target on their backs, everyone wants a piece of them.

Croatia played much better than Brazil, their tactical approach without a true holding midfielder got them confused. I agree with Gary Lineker: “It’s a tight call for Brazil’s man of the match between Neymar and the Referee”.

And it was only by miracle it didn't end up worse for Spain: 11 shots on target for Netherlands. Spain looked more shocked and surprised than just out of shape. And GREAT performance by Netherlands, a spectacular mix of very young players supporting veterans like Van Persie, Robben, Sneijder and De Jong: they employed some very interesting and innovative tactics, with an asphyxiating pressing strategy when they had to defend, and total football when they had to attack. What's even worse for Spain is that if they won't avoid the 2nd place (which is very likely at this point), they'll have to play vs Brazil in the round of 16.

Re: Official 2014 FIFA World Cup Thread

Yes Netherlands played almost flawlessly. I'm pretty sure not many would have guessed that outcome. Picking 2 out of 3 ain't bad at all.

My picks for tomorrow..

England 2 v Italy 2
bet amount $20
Bet Payout:$380.00

Colombia 2 v Greece 0
bet amount $20
Bet Payout $134

Uruguay 3 v Costa Rica 1
bet amount $20
Bet Payout $260

Just think what their coach will achieve at Manchester United. I knew this was the only chance Liverpool had of winning the Premier league
