I honestly think thats too close to call, Ivory Coast are a really good side, and at those odds they're not a bad bet... hmmm...

I'm torn. Brazil got scored on by Korea...so really...anything could happen. Kinda tempted to take a draw on this one, but really Brazil should take it. Ivory Coast looked good, though. Arg, tough one! Gonna be a great game!

Yup- been looking forward to this one for awhile now. I really think it has the potential to be one of the most entertaining of the Cup. I'd love to see a back and forth 3-2 style game because I think offensively both of these are going to kick it up a notch and play very aggressive.

Less than half an hour to go. :thumb02:

The second goal was a hand ball. I think if it was dissallowed it could have been a much closer game. Elano's goal was an absolute peach though.

So, why aren't you calling Brazil cheating basterds?
No offence though.. :thumb02:
Wasn't nearly the same as Henry hand ball, Fabiano went up to chest it down and it rolled on to his arm. Henry actually palmed the ball back into play like a basketball or something. That's knowingly cheating.

The ref asked him after the goal if he played hand or not. He said NO. I think he should get a penalty for that! Thats very unsportsmanlike.

Plus Brazil must be the luckiest team in the World.. 3 shots 3 Goals.. that won't work in the last 16.

And if Kaka keeps playing in the last 16 they will play with 10 instead of 11 players. He shouldn't even be in the team!

Kaka's being marked by two men, his break away down the flank to provide Elano with the ball was awesome though. I expect him to get better.

Bobby- I'm beginning to think you just don't like Brazil. :)

Yeah it was a hand ball but other players do the same thing and it's up to the refs to see it and call it. Everyone pushes the rules to the limits and yes you call it cheating much like the Italian player diving to gain the penalty kick. Yeah the defender was holding his shirt but that didn't cause him to flop like a fish but bottom line is that it worked and he got his team a goal because of it.

This game got ugly in the last ten minutes- wasn't the worst I've ever seen but pretty close. If the game had 20 minutes left it would have gotten even worse.

Haha it's a little bit of everything Walker :) I do like to see Brazil play of course. But when I have to watch a World Footballer like Kaka playing like a third devision guy, just makes me go nuts ;D I mean it's so obvious that Kaka is completely out of form at the moment and that there are so many better players in the World who could replace him for at least this Cup. For me personally even after he primed the first Goal, Kaka was the worst player on this field. He nearly lost every ball in the first half.

And I hate the way how Brazil plays atm. They (even if they don't put on the players I would like to see) still have an amazing rooster on the field and so much potential, but instead of playing the game, they play like Uruguay. :thumbsdown:

But I agree with you on the hand goal. It's hard for a player to actually tell the truth here. Thats a problem the Fifa has to control first. Until then players like Henry and Fabiano think about there Team wich is just fine and right.

I just hope we see some Brazilian football in the next games. Otherwise I stick with my prediction and call a last 16 or quartelfinal OUT. :)

Don't be so hard on Kaka, Bobby. I mean, he had 2 assists in the game, and besides, there wasn't anything THAT big about that offense. The Cote d' Ivoire player ran into Kaka and he only put up his elbow to decrease the resistance. And what's up with that guy holding his face when Kaka actually hit his chest? Wasn't that serious IMO.

Kaka never deserved this red card there! That was a mistake by the Ref. And should really be rescinded for the next game!
