    So much for missing Thiago Silva in the semi.

    Luiz is getting way too much stick for running forward. Nothing wrong with a centre half breaking forward from deep providing the DM spots it and slots in to cover

    Oh stop it Furball he had a basic defensive header which he gave right to the attacker, the man's a hack at defending. his job.

    His attacking output has actually been quite good and I'm not even sure people are complaining that much about him running forward. It's just the comical way he's dealt with opposition attacks.

    Oh I'm not sticking up for his defending. It's been ****ing woeful. I'm just saying that he's been unfairly criticised for something when there's plenty they can be going after him for.

    Brazil's only method of attack is for Luiz to just ping balls over the top like he's abusing the OP LB+Y on fifa 14, so he should probably still be in the side. Should just have put him in the midfield like KP side.

    Fair enough you are right in this instance on that part of his play, but c'mon when someone has been so ****ing woeful you can only expect it.

    I take it you're at least aware of the Fifa video game series? In the current one it's really easy to play lobed through balls and is one of the easiest ways to score. LB+Y is just how you do it on Xbox.

    This is the stuff I don't understand particularly the bit you assumed I did. I do know there are computery games in cricket and football, but my mind turns off as soon as they're mentioned. Not really sure what an x-box is either, but they sound spiffing.

    All the actual dives we've had and the first yellow gets given for that. FMD.
