Dino, I think that's a good point. Hulk actually looked more Hulk than Bruce Banner against Colombia
I think Hummels will pop up with a header for a goal at some point.
It's worth keeping an eye on Oscar from the start. He's been forced wide of late, but with Neymar out he may return to the centre.
Gooner, if Liverpool can get £75m for a duplicitous 27 year old who has missed/will miss almost an entire season through suspension for racial abuse and biting, then I think they've done very well indeed. It's time to cut loose. A 400% profit and all those goals is a decent return.
Bashel, my friend got sent out of English class at school so much that one day our teacher ordered him out at the start of the lesson, using the reasonsing that she'd have to do it at some point anyway - maybe the same could be done with Fernandinho?
Faisal, you'll find him in the Brazil starting XI...
I think Mertesacker would have been a good choice given that Brazil don't have Neymar's pace, but Low knows what he's doing.
As if we need a reminder of what's at stake... The advancing country today is the first to reach eight World Cup Finals. No pressure...
Gooner, Liverpool may have issues whatever happens. Raised expectations, players with inflated egos, a renewed Manchester United. But, honestly, if they can't take £75m and add something to that team, they need a good talking-to.
Lovren would be a fine buy for Liverpool, and they need options - but I agree that the money could be better spent elsewhere.
I don't believe so, Brush. But I think Scolari is looking for more invention and flair, hence Bernard.
15 minutes till kick-off...
