    For the safety of the player, really. Warriors will play through broken bones; we have to have rules in place to ensure that they don't push themselves past reasonable standards.

    Good proposal.

    Best thing about this game : One of these teams has been eliminated.
    Worst thing about this game : One of these teams has not been eliminated.

    We don’t wanna hear years later about how a player was forced to play through such injuries and how now their lives are a wreck physically.

    If Neymar isn’t in a wheelchair by 50 I’ll be shocked

    If it wasn't for Ochoa this would have been 5-0.

    Yup; exactly like the concussions in football. Gotta get out ahead of it or they'll end up like those old football players; walking corpses, basically.

    I don't think Ronaldo is as bad; at least he's a little selective. Neymar goes down every time an opposing player farts in his general vicinity.

    Brazil-Belgium (I doubt that Japan will beat them) quarterfinal should be a treat.

    Looking great against Panama and Tunisie is not a huge achievement.
    Also, Belgium have never won against the big boys in international tournaments.
    It will be a tough game, but I like our chances.

    Seriously, there are some likable guys out there, but this Brazil side is by far the most unlikable team I've seen in a while.

    And when oh when will they bring in retroactive suspensions for dives and faking injury.

    Absolutely disgusting.

    Belgium, please... Beat them. Doesn't have to be 7-1, but a 3-0 will do. :D

    Mexico did what they always do by going out at this stage, but the first 30 mins them taking the game on Brazilians, showed that Brazil are hardly invincible.

    If they make it through, Belgium's full backs are a concern though, they'll have trouble against Neymar and Willian for sure. But I bet that Hazard fancies himself against Fagner as well, and Lukaku should provide more scoring threat than what Mexico had. Not to mention de Bruine can score from long distance.

    I think the most impressive thing from Brazil was their shot blocking, they were like NHL players out there. But that could be exploited with fake shots and patience, and then quick penetrating runs.

    Yea Lukaku adds a size and arial threat that Mexico didn’t have. De bruyne is also a better distributor than anyone on Mexico and Hazard adds more threat from slower play while still being amazing on the break.

    Brazil's going to win the WC and people are going to be extra mad.

    It's time for another South American team... cheering for that from here on out. Personal preference would Uruguay or outside shot of Columbia.

    Hard to say, they've not really been that tested yet.
    For me, France is better.

    They (most likely) will have to go through Belgium, and then Uruguay or France. Won't be easy.

    Neymar is still one of the biggest *****ebags I've ever seen that is considered a world athlete. I like how Brazil plays, but Neymar is one giant pile of dog ****. He knows how to play football, but he is a shining star what nobody likes about football. **** him. As soon as someone breathes on him, he behaves like he lost his entire leg on a landmine. Five times every game. Get rid of him already.

    A forgettable game. It was more entertaining than both games yesterday, but that's like saying it's better to no be in a burning house.

    Neymar, Suarez, Ronaldo, Pepe, etc, they can all go to hell.

    France usually beats Brasil in WC. They match well against them.
    Problem is that France doesn't match well against regrouped parking the bus opponents. Read Uruguay.
