    Should be individual match threads IMO.

    Thought of that, but this'll do for quarters. We can do individual threads for the semis.

    Argie vs Belgium game looks missable after what I saw today. Maybe just go straight to extra time or penalties. Would normally support anyone playing the Argies but Belgium pretty unlikable.

    Friday is a day for the underdogs for me. I'll be cheering on France and Columbia. Columbia has the more realistic chance to upset. The Brasil we have seen so far is in trouble if Columbia turn up.

    May I ask why?
    Apart from Dries Mertens, a filthy rotten diver that exceeds both Suarex & Robben on any given day, they're quite likable imo.
    Madness. Exhilarating. Magical. Netherlands have crossed the line in an unbelievable 13.5 overs.
    It's like watching a Gayle from each end. And when one Gayle gets out.. Another Gayle comes in...

    Belgium-USA was a fantastic game surely? Or is that just me?

    No it's not just you. Didn't want extra time to end.

    Belgium has Fellaini. That makes them unlike able to me. I'll be bitter about Moyes signing this clown for a while.

    Belgium vs USA was decent but for their talent it took them forever to score. They only scored the first because the US had a high line and Besler got sat down by Lukaku. Argentina may suit them if they can hit on the counter and triple team Messi. If Argentina are prepared to defend in numbers and wait for Messi magic I can see a dull game. An early Belgium goal would help the games pace but Belgium haven't scored any pre 70 min goals yet.

    Would like to know what you consider a good game if yesterday was "decent".

    And if they had been facing Argentina's keeper rather than Howard, they'd have won by about five.

    I would have preferred a more open game for the whole time. The USA parked the bus and that took away from the game as a spectacle until they were forced to attack.

    The Argie keeper looks vulnerable but will they dominate possession against them? The US gifted possession back to them for most of the game. I can't see Argentina being that bad in possession.

    Yeah, and I'd prefer it if my toilet was made out of gold.

    Yeah Belgium and USA was just brilliant. I mean it was amazing in extra time but it was pretty damn good in normal time as well.

    If USA 'parked the bus' then they did not do it very well because Belgium had so many chances.
