Mexico 1-o Brazil

Well, well, well.

So..you didnt belive in Mexico!!

This is AWSOME!!..really great!!...i love soccer!

VIVA MEXICO !!! Well done !!! :D  :D

Our guys played like s**t that Sunday. Terrible and confusing game for us.

Answering baron´s question... the referee canceled the first and second shots because someone invaded the goal area before Borgetti shot the ball, what is not permitted. on the first shot, two brazilian players invaded, on the second, a mexican invaded it.

I forget to say that Brazil x Mexico are always very tight matches. The only exception was last  Copa America´s quarterfinal, when Brazil defeated Mexico  by 4-0.

Other games I remember are Brazil 2 x 0 Mexico and Brazil 2 x 1 Mexico (1999 Copa America), Mexico 4 x 3 Brazil (1997 Confederations Cup), Mexico 1 x 0 Brazil (2001 Copa America), Brazil 3 x 2 Mexico (1995 Confederations Cup), Mexico 2 x 0 Brazil (Gold Cup, 1996 I think...), Mexico 0 X 0 Brazil (2003 Friendly).....

I´m in Frankfurt, Germany at the moment.

Great atmosphere and enthusiasm amongst the German public, can´t wait for the atmosphere when the world cup comes here next year.

Seen lots of Mexican, Greek and Brazilian fans about the streets.

Well, it is going to be a South American final, a complete classic. Lets see if Brazil can avenge their last defeat against Argentina in Buenos Aires.

Mexico, just has not learned to take penalty shots.

Similar to what happened in USA 1994 when they were eliminated by Bulgaria, on penalty shots in a round of 16 game.  :(  :unclesam:

poor, poor mexico getting beat by the amazing Germans

Germany did look extremely impressive in this tournement, hopefully it carries over into the world cup so Germany can make it at least to the semis

Germany's time to win will be in 2010 in South Africa

Timo Hidlebrand is 26 - 31 5 years from now

Tolsten Fringes will be 34 in 2010

Sebastain Deisler will be 29

Ballack 34

Kuranyi 28

Podolski 25

Asamaoh 32

so Germany will have a good experienced side to put on the field with many players at their peak

Possibly, but I'm still not inclined to write Argentina off.

I'd say Frings and Ballack will be past it by 2010, but Schweinsteiger should be coming into his own by then.

Still, the only way Germany will win the World Cup in 2010 is if there are a seriously good crop of youngsters coming through now.

So how do we explain the recent World Cup qualifier in which Argentina beat Brazil 3-1?

Between 2 equally good teams and perennial rivals, I think it's like a tennis match: A wins 1; B wins the next one; etc.  Also, sort of like Mexico and the U.S.   Of course, Brazil could fall completely apart like Argentina did in K/J.  It's still a year away.

Ballack, Fringes and Klose would probably be playing the roles Kahn is now

Germany's front should be soldier for the next 5 years, its the back thats the problem, but Germany has one long history of good defenders, so put Podolski in front of them and you have a traditional German team
