Was so good when he was back in Brazil. Turned into a complete twat.

2018 - England win World Cup.
2022 - British Government takes a principled stand against Qatari government's appalling corruption and human/civil rights record and bans all 4 of the UK's national teams from entering the qualifying stages.
Why would the UK Government need to ban all 4? Just need to ban England in order to guarantee all the Home Nations don't compete in Qatar.

Just finished watching the Brazil/Serbia game. For 70 minutes this was a cracking game, one of those games you couldn't take your eyes off, which was completely spoilt as a spectacle by Thiago Silva selfishly scoring from a set piece, totally against the run of the game at the time. I thought Matic was absolutely outstanding for 60 minutes. Yes, Brazil are a very good team, strong in most areas, with a decent balance of skills, and after they went 2-0 up, and Serbia visibly wilted, they looked the part, but Serbia showed tonight, as did Switzerland, that they are not invincible. There are much worse teams going through to the knockout stages than Serbia.

Just watched MOTD highlights of the other two games. That Alex Scott is hardly breaking the mould of fuckwit punditry is she. She "fawt" Neymar was "more busier" today apparently.

Eni Aluko has been much better on ITV I think. Stands out though amongst the likes of Larsson and Evra who've spoken with very little insight.

Neymar was good today, first time in this tournament. He's a quick crafty little dribbler that gave them fits. I dont like all the hype either but is skill is obvious.

Coutinho was better and has been for all the world cup. Atleast his every movement has meaning to it.

Neymar's every move seems individualistic.

I switched off when he was taking all the plaudits for the 2nd goal because he took the corner.

Vastly overrated and a complete prick to boot.
Before that corner he couldnt even clear the first man and smashed it straight into the face of a Serbian player.

The other day she "fawt" one team, I can't remember which as my brain was about to explode, was "more betterer" than in their previous game. That voice is enough to make your ears bleed.

Eni Aluko at least tries to offer some insight, I think she is a breath of fresh air.
