Then let's say they will be in top 5 medal winners. They will forget the troubles and praise the achievement.
I mean seriously if you know you have poverty and unemployement issues, why take on such ambitious projects? Was it so hard and shamefull to refuse FIFA when they awarded the WC?
the protests was not about the wc in the first place. Brazils middle class decided to take part after the police act with violence and than they decided to complain about everything. today the gov reduced the price so they will probably get weaker now

Yes, but so what?

As i've heard in tv, do you know what means 92% of ball possession in football? NOTHING.

Proof of that?

Spain defeated Uruguay 2-1.

Uruguay was playing very bad, specially in the begin.. but anyway.. even with low ball possession if Uruguay had scored just one more goal, which was quite possible, specially in the end, the match would draw, and so whats the deal about 92% of ball possession?!

A team can have 99% of ball possession if they keep the ball between the goal kepper and a player in defense, so what?!

2-1 is pretty a normal and dangerous result, doesnt matter the ball possession at all.

This is why Spain actually won the 2010 WC even though they lost to Swiss (a team which had a very strong defense) and just defeated Paraguay in penalties (and Paraguay played much better).

Honestly i can't see anything that BIG in Spanish team other than the marketing (like the marketing Brazil had in 2006).

Yes it does, it means that for 92% of the time Spain can score but the opposition cannot. Er, that's the idea of ball retention.

Spain have won the last 2 European Championships and are current Euro & World Champions and it's all down to luck!!

I hope Spain play Brazil and stop all this daft nonsense, Brazil might win, but Spain, win or lose, will make Brazil look silly. Bring it on!

Spain play again in Maracana after 63 years!

In this stadium got his best classification in a World Cup with a goal of Zarra to England in WC 1950.



As a fan for the best World Football Selection of the Worl (and I think of history at the team level), as a lover of architecture, and the history, today is a nice day, I look forward to the game.

I understand now. Most of the romanian news said that the main protest was about the austerity measures taken by the brazilian goverment to compesate for the money spent on the 2014 WC, so that is why I was in error.

Great match last night (romanian time) between Japan and Italy.

when the middle class decided throught the facebook to take part, the protests against the money invested for the wc became one of the main reasons, also a project to emend the constititution to limit the power of investigation of the prosecuteurs and the corruption. today is schedule the first protest about the bus fare after the reduction, lets ser if its the last one.

they said they got stolen not robbed. BTW, who leaves wallet in a hotel room outside the safebox in any part of the world?!? of course this doesnt change the gravity of the fact but they could be more careful

You got to admire Tahiti, The willingness of these players, even if they lose 20-0 they don't care. They are happy to be in a tournament like this. When Torres missed a penalty the goalkeeper was so happy. I doesn't matter if you lose you can always be happy with what you have done!

Cmon spain, Give Tahiti a goal!

This could be a major disaster for the WC if the protests will intensify which seems to be case. Pretty serious stuff if you ask me. I support the protests though.
