Didn't expect Spain to be out after the second game. But it was deserved. They just looked anemic and out of sync. This wasn't tiki-taka, it was some remnants of tiki-taka combined with some unclear structure, a terrible combination to play in a tournament. Spain looked like a team without philosophy out there. It was strange to see them on the one hand still try to pass their way into the goal, but on the other hand try long bombs to Diego Costa.

Speaking of Costa, del Bosque did a terrible job trying to fit him into the team. It was plain obvious that he wasn't in form and that the team wasn't accustomed to playing with him. It would probably have been better if del Bosque had tried to stick with a false nine.

But alas, every run has to come to an end and Spain had a magnificient one, perhaps the greatest run of sustained excellence. Winning the UEFA Euro in 2008 and 2012 with a World Cup squeezed in between? Crazy.

Now I want to see Chile beat up the Dutch. Netherlands - Brazil sounds like a great matchup for the next round.

Welp, Spain imploded worse than Italy last WC. That's some feat. Costa was shit. Why the hell is every Brazilian born striker sucking ass this WC. Ronaldo would play better in his current fattened state than these tards.

Holland - Germany final pls. 10 man Brazil ain't winning shit.

There are few things people like more than to say "Oh, how the mighty have fallen."

I do feel bad for Australia. They made their presence known in the World Cup, but luck wasn't on their side in either match.

Cameroon player headbutts a teammate. Can't believe it.

No trace of professionalism.

I wish Croatia beats Mexico in the next round just to shut up the commentators in Univision.

I mean, Spain vs. Chile had not ended and they were already talking about how Mexico was a sure thing for second place of Group A.

Never enjoyed the domination from Spain all these years, but when the era is finally over today, I actually feel a bit sad....it's almost like I never fully appreciate this amazing domination and suddenly, we can only go back to footage to remember those glory days from Spain

P.S
didn't Pele pick Spain and Germany??....An era can be over, but no one can escape from Pele's predication XD

Pele was a great player but I don't listen to anything he says nowadays. :P

Germany is the favorite with Brazil I think but you gotta remember they got smashed by Italy in the Euro. Weather also favors SA teams so.

I wouldn't say I enjoyed Spain's domination but I liked them up until the last world cup, then their style degenerated in a billion passes not for the sake of finding gaps and creating attacks anymore but just for the sake of killing time. Looks like Xavi's rapid decline had a big influence on Spain. And also why are they still playing Casillas that's mind boggling.

Glad to see Alexis is still such a diver he should quit football and land in Hollywood.

Spain has another impressive generation coming -- De Gea, Morata, Isco, Carvajal, etc. Their youth team won the U21 Euro Championships after all.

These are not players for tiki-taka, however. And it may or may not be Del Bosque who gets to do the rebuilding. Spain benefited from Barca's age of glory for too long. Now they have to dissociate themselves from its remnants (they'll never have Messi and Neymar after all ).

Italy won, but we weren't "smashed". Let's not drift into fantasy territory.

It's too early for predictions, really. Brazil and Holland showed defensive weaknesses, we did too, Chile played a strong game, Argentina and Italy had a decent start... we'll have to wait and see.

Besides, we and Germany cannot meet before the final in this tournament, so it makes little sense for them to worry (or even think) about us now, and vice versa.
I'm much more worried about all the injuries we're getting, not serious stuff but knocking out players for 1-2 matches, the latest one was Barzagli.

I'd say that today's big match is Uruguay-Enland , whoever side loses is in real trouble. CIV-Columbia is also a good match but they're relatively more tranquil, 3 points for both. Japan will need to beat Greece, but that loss with Cote d'Ivoire has made things very tough for them.

I want Japan to win not because I am a fan of Japan football team, but because I want their opponents out asap. Yes, I have never forgotten Euro 2004.
