  • What a wonderful match!

    Although the outcome was never in doubt, both teams put on a wonderful offensive show generating many chances at both ends. It would have been tough enough for Chile at full strength, but with two defenders suspended for multiple yellow cards, the task was nigh impossible.

    The co-favorite and World #1 Samba Boys put on a clinic. Their three goals were beautiful to watch and their talent and class obvious for all to see. I would have liked to see the Chileans get a goal; I though they richly deserved one for their game effort.

    Chile becomes the first South American team eliminated from the Finals and it took a fellow South American side to beat them. There are still four teams left and we could very well see all advance to the quarter-finals. Three are already there and Paraguay should be able to beat Japan.

    I can't wait for Brazil v. Netherlands - it should be a great match between two of the top four teams in the world.moreless

    Kaka! Kaka! Kaka! No, that is not the sound of a crow sitting on your fence chirping, it is the name of the star of Team Brazil.

    Going into this game Chile needed a miracle, probably two miracles. They needed Brazil's team bus to get in an accident, that was just about the only thing that would allow them to win this game.

    Brazil was my pick to win it all from the beginning and I do not see any reason to think they won't, unless Ghana really is as good as their dancing is (then they cannot possibly be stopped this year.)moreless

  • QUOTES (3)

    • Chile Goalkeeper Claudio Bravo: We're a fragile team at times. We're good going forward but we've also got to be able to defend. We've got a young team and we need to keep on learning. We're heading for home but we can rest easy in the knowledge that we gave it our all, we tried to achieve big things and tried to be a fair and honest team. We gave it everything, we couldn't have done any more. We were just unfortunate to come up against Brazil.

    • Chile Coach Marcelo Bielsa: We deserved to reach this stage but we also deserved to go out. Perhaps the margin of victory was a bit excessive but, overall, it was clear just how superior our opponents were. Brazil had the patience to take advantage of any spaces we gave them, and it's always dangerous when you concede the first goal against them. We did a good job despite being one of the youngest sides in the competition, which makes me think that, with the benefit of more experience, we can continue to progress in the future.

    • Brazil Coach Dunga: Today's was a nice game to watch, because Chile like to attack too. They're difficult opponents to mark, because their players never stop moving, but Brazil were able to hold firm and play a balanced match. When we had the ball, we were able to use it quickly.
