    Mertens out, really? I'm surprised he had the balls to do this, don't get me wrong, Mertens's Casper act was surpassed by De Bruyne only but still.

    Funny tidbit. The word Dries (or Drieß or Driss) is rhineland dialect for **** (poop).

    Fellaini did great when he came on last game, but he's much much better as a sub than as a starter.

    There are just some players who are like that. It takes a certain mindset.

    German commentator is very open about Neymar. "...don't worry about Neymar, he has recovered from the terrible pain the Mexicans inflicted on him".

    Hope this game is half as exciting as the Japan/Belgium game was. Though it seems like the further the competition goes the more cautious the teams become, as it becomes more about not losing than it does about winning.

    I can't help but feel that continuing to force Jesus into the line-up over Firmino is a mistake that will haunt them at some point. Maybe I'm wrong though.

    Despite the local rivalry with the Dutch I do quite like this Belgian team though so I wouldn't mind if they won here and went on to lose to Croatia in the final.

    I had a feeling that would happen, but they also can’t go down 2-0 today

    What is this Belgium team selection? I guess they are rewarding Chadli and Fellaini for scoring?

    While having Fellaini in midfield is going to give de Bruyne more freedom higher up, it's something I expect to work more in Brazil's favour. I would be very surprised if he doesn't get a card or two.

    Fellaini should have a yellow for that forearm to the back of the head.

    My god! Brazil had only four people in the box, and they still generated a chance.
