Fair play but those are awful odds. Should have been at least 16/1 at that point
that was immediately after Japan 2nd goal, still long time to go

i did see it go out to 14/1 a few mins before Vertonghen scored , anyway a winner is a winner

Pretty appalling how badly the Brazil players play-act, dirty cheating bastards.

They really should bring something in so they can be retrospectively punished.

Neymar as per usual was a little shit and Casemiro had an incident when was rolling all over floor then as soon as he saw awarded free kick he bounced up...

Layun clearly did it on purpose. It was Lamela-esque.

What happened to the Brazil that produced so many footballing magicians through the years? (n)
he did, but he also applied very little force. Neymar's reaction was complete acting.

I had a couple of quid on it at Skybet, about a minute before Belgium scored at 28/1. they nearly stiffed me because when I went to place the bet it was 25/1 and the odds changed which I had to accept before they'd let me put the bet on. I came close to not being able to get it on at all, which didn't impress me. TBH that's the one thing I don't like about Skybet, they fuck about with the odds SO much. Harry Kane to score a hat. trick tonight was 25/1 for ages then they 'boosted' it to 50/1, so anyone who had a punt at 25's isn't going to like that much.

Neymar is literally a cancer on the game. Would rather watch Brentford v Crawley than a team with him in.

Yello card for improper use of Literally.

Once more and you’re off with a ten game ban from the Grammar Nazis.

The Nippon vs Blegium game was one of the best I have seen so far - and an example that "lesser" team (in this case Nipon) can indeed come out and play good football against a team rated (much) better rather than just sit back and hope for a result. Nipon were really posting a threat through out the game. Felt sorry for them and would much rather see them through than so some of the dreary, dull teams that will/have come through.

You just posted this because you wanted to use the word 'Nipon' several times, didn't you...
