    It has become unbelievably dull... Brazil are supposed to play exciting football aren't they? * Yawn *

    I don't have cable anymore, so Freeview only has the 5 Live commentary option. It might be bad, but it doesn't bother me too much! I do like listening to the 5 Live commentary during the SuperBowl rather than those drab Americans!
    You can still do that on BBC with the red button on sky. The five live commentary was available for the England game.

    Mexican keeper was on fire. A great game and Brazil stopped dead in their tracks with a ref making the right calls. The penalty shouts that went unheard is justice for what happened previously.

    I do like an underdog and to see the much hyped Brazil kept to 0-0 by a very good Mexico was brilliant. I feel bad Mexico didn't manage to convert any of their chances, that would really put the cat amongst the proverbial Scolari

    It's not happened in Brazil, it's happened in Nigeria. It's not really the fault of the world cup.... Of course it's still tragic.

    I know where Nigeria is! Still related though, that part of the world is unstable and it was inevitable that people would gather to watch a game and some militant savage would take advantage of it. This is the same group that attacked schools and kidnapped the children before selling them into slavery.

    I'm aware of who the group are.... Had those people gathered to watch Nigeria play a friendly the same thing would have happened. As you said this place is unstable and it was inevitable that something like this would happen (whether the world cup was on or not) I think the fears of the world cup were protests, riots, gang crime and such in Brazil.

    As I said it's tragic but I wouldn't say that it happened due to the world cup

    I heard the commentator say during the Brazil game that there was 20 murders reported from Friday to Sunday in the city the game was being played. Think i'll stick to being an armchair fan...

    Yeah, I think that's pretty normal in Brazil, don't fancy it too much myself either. I think the pub is a much better idea
