They've set a load of unwelcome records this week : they hadn't lost a competitive match at home in 40 years and now they've lost two in a row and tonight's result is their second worst WC result in...

Ironically one of his fouls / dives looked like a clear penalty, but the refs don't trust him.

They've been found out at both ends since Neymar's departure. A dodgy defence and they pose no sort of a goal threat without him in the team.

It's not bizarre at all. Brazil had 58% possession which tells us they tried to take the game to the Netherlands throughout the 90 minutes. The difference between the two sides was the Netherlands'...

Yes, they looked comfortable because they had a two goal cushion after 17 minutes. That still doesn't equate to dominating a game though.....for me a team who dominates is one who presses hard and...

I thought myself the Colombians were tactically naive to get sucked into a war of attrition with the Brazilians (but then again they got no protection from the referee, who may well have been a...

The Netherlands "didn't" dominate tonight's match though, did they? It was actually a very open game but the Dutch clinically put away two of their chances from open play and netted their...

At least we should have a clearer idea of just how good Germany are tomorrow night (or not). They're playing a well organised team, with a good midfield and a very strong defence.

I wouldn't...

And Brazil didn't play at all well in that match either, so it wouldn't have been a fluke had that late shot gone in.

Their approach to Colombia was utterly cynical though. Scolari feared Colombia's passing game and decided the only way to stop their attacks was to hack them down at every opportunity (and James...

I presume your aside of "not understanding football" was aimed at me seeing as I started the thread?

I have my doubts on that one. Chile hit the crossbar in the 118th minute and Brazil beat a very skillful and talented Colombian side by kicking them off the pitch.

Of course it was a humiliation. Tonight's result was their worst one in the WC since the 98 final if we take Tuesday's result out of the equation, meaning they've had a quite disastrous week.

By their standards, certainly. They shouldn't have even been in the semi finals and may have only deserved a last 16 spot at best this year.

Tonight? I wouldn't go that far....Brazil had 2 shots on target to NL's 4, which tells us the Brazilians defended badly whilst the Dutch were sharp in front of goal.

I would say Brazil played at a simillar level in both games - 52% possession against Germany and 58% against NL. Based on what we saw in the two matches, Germany certainly look a stronger and more...

That's why they fully deserved their trashing on Tuesday. They kicked a very talented and skillfull Colombian team off the pitch in the quarter final.

Eloratings may well have to downgrade Germany's rating based on tonight's performance. The Netherlands are not as good as the Germans and yet are cruising against a very poor Brazil side.

Not at all. I see Neymar's agent has launched a blistering attack on Scolari describing him as a useless coach but it actually appears as if he is staying on.

You haven't been following today's news then. The incoming president of the Brazilian FA says he wants him to stay and Scolari says he wants to keep his job too.

Spain 2010 were a far better team than the current Argentinian one though. They kept winning their matches by only 1-0 but they were a fantastic side.
