Impressive performance of the Chinese team !! Two victories over good Europeans squads!! So far, China is the biggest surprised.

:( * I´m dissapointed with Brazil´s performance against Nigeria... our boys played too poor. Hope they get better against Switzerland.

??? Ops!! Chile !!! Win by seven goals.... and then lose by seven goals ?  ???  So high and so low...

Let´s keep an eye on the Colombian squad... they´re the actual south-american champions. Tough team.  Spain seems also to be in a good form.

All the country was excited after the victory 7-0 against Honduras: the largest victory against any selection (the othera are 7-0 against Armenia and Venezuela, and the 10-2 against USA in the PanAm), the only victory in a World Cup in Europe, the largest victory in a World Cup of any Chilean team, etc, etc... they broke all the records...

And the earthquake didn't happen only in Iquique... also in Doetinchem... The President wanted to visited the team, but he must return to Chile because of the tragedy of Tarapacá... and they lost 7-0: the worst defeat of any selection, the worst defeat of a World Cup, etc, etc, etc... and they broke all the records...

The refferee was awful, but after the 3rd goal, the defenses dissappeared... We hope we will defeat Morocoo... ormaybe they will draw 7-7  :P

Recently, Chile lost against Netherlands 3-0.

After a goal at 3', Chile made a great job against the locals... The goalkeeper made an amazing job with a lot of shoots in the second half, but when Chile is near of drawing, Holland scored again, and happened exactly the same that happened against Spain. After the second goal, the defense was broken and the third goal was scored in few minutes...

I'm sad because Chile did a great job, but we can't do more.
