Brazil so close of going out. They'll be physically challenged in their next game, they had to run a lot today.

That was the most interesting game of the whole world cup so far, if you ask me. Everything Germany did was boring compared to that. I also liked that last game of the Ivory Coast and what James Rodriguez did yesterday.

Serious question: whose bright idea was it to host the next World Cup in Qatar?

2018 World Cup is in Russia. 2022 is in Qatar.

Well it's hot as hell, also I've heard that the working conditions are terrible, but aside from that nothing. Just seems like a totally random place to host it

Yeah, workers are dying by hundreds. But Quatar had a good project, with climatized stadiums that would be un-constructed after the world cup and re-built in africa.

Also they gave shitload money to FIFA to bribe them.

Germany suffering to beat Algeria. Looks like the world cup of the weaker teams.

The German team just achieved the biggest free kick overkill in the history of soccer. Neuer, Schweinsteiger and Müller do all the work. As one of our TV commentators remarked, it's funny how Khedira destroyed a ball right after being injured for so long.

I felt very confident in ther german team. But after 5 heart attacks today not anymore.
2nd half was way better but still not as good as Iexpected.
It's a very interesting world cup with many "weaker" teams winning over "better" teams. Now I'm really looking forward to germany vs france, two "better" teams how they play against each other.

Ochoa was an amazing goalkeeper in the wc, julio cesar defeated 2 penalties. But in the end I love how Neuer played today, some german trainer once said: "You should put Neuer on position 6....or as defender.....or just everywhere"

Definitely, both Algeria and Nigeria played really good. I also liked iran, costa rica and Colombia.
