Add Costa Rica to the growing list of teams at this World Cup that could play all day and not score.

European strength and organisation beats the rest of the world so far.

Neither Costa Rica or Panama are going very far.

I reckon the Costa Rican was more worthy of a red card than Mitrovic there. He is the last man, doing a professional foul by holding Mitrovic's shirt.

This is a shocking lineup from ITV btw.  Oatley, Evra, Larsson and Aluko with Joe Speight and Iain Dowie on commentary.

Pierre van Hooijdonk about the Costa Rican who jumped and turned his body and head around during Kolarov's free kick: "You can't do that. For your fatherland, you must face the ball and have courage to be hit by the ball." :thup:

Reminded me of Uruguay vs. Egypt. Inept finishing from open play by the favorite to win, but saved by a set piece.

After this game, it seems Brazil's group is easier than it looked at first (not that it ever looked strong), hopefully Switzerland will be a good team.

Do not underestimate Serbia. They are far more superior in the physical department than Brazil and could prove difficult to beat.

I hope so, as I don't want a bunch of boring games in the group stage. :)

They're also quite slow. I reckon they'll struggle with the pace Brazil have in their team

They will set up defensively and will try to hit them on counter and set pieces. Zivkovic, Markovic, Kostic can provide the speed on the flanks if they need to.

Was at my mate's for this game. We weren't as terrible as i thought we would be. Mitrovic, bloody hell, should've scored at least once. Milinkovic Savic was a breath of fresh air in this team. We look just much more dangerous going forward with him at #10. Still hasn't gelled with his teammates, but well, there's time for that. Muslin was a fooking idiot for not calling him up and that may be costing us here. Tadic also decent. Kostic still terrible. Milenkovic played like an old man at cb. Really like him, could become a really good player. Tosic, ballsy but unhinged at times. Ivanovic past his best but still better than that buffoon Rukavina. 

Anyhow, still keeping my expectations low. Way too much times was i disappointed with this bunch. Let's see how we do against Switzerland...

Yes, it's good as at least it seems others can challenge Brazil. Our group stages are rarely very tough. Hopefully Costa Rica and Serbia will play well against us too.
