    On the one hand, there's not much about that performance to suggest an imminent World Cup win.

    On the other hand, if Brazil can be that unconvincing and still beat a good Croatian team 3-1 then perhaps that says a lot.

    Well they will only get better.

    Wish England could play that badly and win 3-1.

    They all said "Hallo," and felt awkward and unhappy suddenly, because it was a sort of good-bye they were saying, and they didn't want to think about it.

    Also, did anyone else get the feeling the ITV commentary/pundits were trying to ram the whole "Brazil are wonderful" thing down the throat of the throat of the viewer? They are just so obviously determined for Brazil to be good, when it's fairly clear this is not a classic Brazil team by any stretch of the imagination.

    Do this every World Cup to be fair, so no surprise that they are trying even harder this time round.

    It's what Tyldesley does, he's worse with Barca, and was with Spain.

    He seems to feel he has to cream over teams.

    Yeah, I suppose so. I just lost track of how many times they reminded us how Neymar was "only 22". So tedious.

    I loved how in the studio Cannavaro appeared to be unable to speak anything more than very basic English. Was great whenever they asked him a question.

    So glad this is a popular opinion

    It happens every single time. The last time Brazil actually played like the Brazil that commentators describe was 1982.
