Except if you are Belgian!

I was worried about the Belgians for a while: they've been touted as everybody's dark horse in the lead-in to the tournament that they've become a little overrated. They've drawn level with Algeria now, so they aren't going to hurt their chances of advancement any further today.

They got their 3 points, but it certainly was unconvincing.

Landon pauses for a few seconds
"Hi"

This game between Brazil and Mexico could be a lot of fun.  I am looking forward to it.

Why is there all is talk about Mexico being really confident? What has Mexico done recently? They sucked all qualifying and had to be saved by the USA. Panama should be in their spot. Then all they had to do was get matched up with an AWFUL New Zealand squad. Any team in the hexagonal could have handled New Zealand. Then they get drawn into a fairly mediocre group. They beat an old, bad Cameroon squad 1-0, and now they think they're a great team now? Ridiculous.

They've been playing like a great team for the first 60 minutes of this match. The hosts haven't been able to figure out how to crack them.

I am not a fan of Mexico, but they are much better than their qualifying record this time around.  Ochoa has been a beast today.  They are frustrating the heck out of Brazil.  Great match thus far.

Yep, very fun to watch.  Mexico a bit lucky, but deserving of the draw.

They're only getting a point for their effort, but the Mexicans played like winners tonight. Both squads should advance to the knockout stage from here.

Everyone who expected this World Cup to be a cakewalk for the Brazilian hosts need to re-evaluate their predictions. If Mexico can play this team to a stalemate, their prospective round of 16 match against one of the 2010 finalists becomes a vulnerable matchup.
