So, what do you guys think of the games we've had so far? There was some very interesting games that made this World Cup even more interesting.
Spain got demolished! After they've won three major tournaments in a row, have they lost the determination to win this one as well?
The Netherlands are all the more hungry though. I haven't really considered them a serious contender after 2012, but that match was amazing.
A few other favorites haven't done quite as well either. Brasilia won, but without the referee's help that match might have looked quite different. Uruguay won't defeat them in their own stadium like in 1950 though, after their loss against Costa Rica they most likely won't make the eigth finals.
England and Italy both were very good, even if Italy won it in the end.
Personally I'm looking forward to Germany against Portugal of course. We haven't done so well in the last test games, but the first few opponents should be difficult, but not impossible, so we can get into the rhythm. I fear we'll make semi-finals or finals without winning just like the last few times, but we'll see.
Also, what do you think of the referee's so far? Is it overdue for the FIFA to allow some kind of video evidence during a match? We got goal-line technology, but should it stop there after several controversial decisions this early in the tournament?
