It will be difficult to surpass the tension of today's two games, but I'm looking forward to the attempt!!!

No, I'm just a bigger fan of Centra/South American Soccer than I am European. Although these days the lines are blurred greatly with players signing on internationally.

True, a player from Mexico could play normally in Boca juniors or in Liverpool (examples!) and still appear here against his usual teammates.
There is another possibility, a player originally from Mexico got USA citizenship and can now play for USA, why not.

All that diversity is exactly the beauty of world cup.

Supporting Mexico today. Looks like this cup is a chance for “smaller” teams since only Brazil and France still remain from the bigger powers.
And yes , I am being sarcastic about England. Though they look good.

By bigger powers I mean teams that have won a World Cup.
Indeed Belgium is full of quality players in almost every position. Yet, two years ago they disappointed (euro).
In terms of quality, I think they are the best team

Yeah, I know.
They disappoint sometimes, but they've done well so far. Last time they were struggling each match…

Nice pressing by Japan so far, it really paid off.

Mexico gave Brasil a hard match, especially the first half. As I said to friends here, it wasn't an easy match.

And what a come-back by Belgians! Probably the best game I've watched so far.

What a game that was. Great comeback by Belgium (even though I was rooting for Japan).

Go comeback!!!
Amazing end too.

Japan played really well. I felt bad for them to be honest.

I liked the way Japan played, and they were unlucky. A textbook goal from Belgium at the end, though.

That was an exciting match. 3-2 scores are always the most exciting.

I'm happy for Belgium. Lots of excited folk honking horns and cheering around here. I thought Japan were going to pull off one hell of an upset though for a while!
