    Cameroon seem to be lacking mental resolve.

    I have been impressed by Neymar. Forget the flicks and the goals. But his work rate, movement and passing are top notch. If he had decent supply, he would have 8 goals by now. I love to see a player grab the game by the scruff of the neck.

    There were a few times last night when the tricks and flicks were starting to come off... it's a shame that he had to pass to Fred and Hulk as there was basically no chance of the move continuing.

    I actually think Brazil have done ok - people seem to have short memories. Spain were very poor in the group stages in the last 2 tournaments yet still managed to win.

    Without Tiago Silva their defence would be non-existent.

    Marcelo, Alves and Luiz are all liabilities in their defensive responsibilities.
    Ah! but a man's reach should exceed his grasp......

    Ramos and Pique have always been fairly poor as well. If Fred starts banging them in anything like last summer they will do alright.

    Chile obviously look like a big threat but they are a little light up front (Sanchez aside). If they had a world class centre forward they would probably have taken a few of their chances yesterday. Mind you with Luiz playing they might receive a fair bit of help.

    Didn't turn out too badly Bar .....80% profit on one bet and have left a smaller bet running just in case they cause a shock against the Argies.
