    Wow, Neymar with a fractured vertebrae. Add that with Silva's booking, and Brazil is screwed.

    I feel awful for the young guy.

    I honestly hate Neymar more than any other player in the tournament (I think he's a cocky prick), but I hate to see something like this... Hopefully he can get back on the pitch for Barcelona very soon!

    Wow playing Argentina would have been UGLY!!! As badly as Belgium dominated us, the Argentines are dominating Belgium the same way, and perhaps even worse. Messi is so much fun to watch and it really shows the difference in talent when you get to the latter group stages.

    That can be a danger with these soccer players crying wolf with their dives. I thought he was just going to pop right back up again. Neymar is a fun player to watch but I don't think he's as talented as past Brasil greats. But its the World Cup in Brasil so they have to prop him up like he's Pele.

    ... 0-5 at 41'? Four goals in a six minute span.

    What is going on?

    Incredible!!!...as a nothing kick in the mid-section Klose scores against Brazil to be leading all time world cup scorer....he passes Ronaldo (Brazil)

    I want Germany to win this tournament, but I was hoping for a better game. Hopefully tomorrow gives us a better match...lets hope Van Persie can go, he was questionable at last check.

    Just listening to some sports radio. They blamed the Brazil ass kicking on the pressure the country gave the team, and not because Germany outplayed them. Why can't anyone give credit to anyone anymore

    The first half was shaky, but they looked in control for most of the second.

    What a great world cup, I loved seeing the Germans win one in South America...hopefully they can repeat in 4 years or maybe even Italia adds another star. I really want to go to at least one world cup but forget the next two...Russia and Quatar.......ehhhh no thanks.
