World Cupdate 2018:
- Belgium nearly makes a big belly flop, getting dominated early by a surprisingly plucky Japanese team, before willing their way back into the quarterfinal space with a shot sent into the right place by Nacer. Victory notwithstanding, this kind of performance is not a harbinger of good things to come/looks bad for the guys in red plaid.
- Sunny day for the fellas in the sunny jerseys, as Neymar and friends run circles around a transfixed Mexico when it mattered most. Brazil still has the biggest weapon in the game, and given the strong supporting cast, there’s not a whole lot anyone can do about it.
