Peru unlucky as they had the better game

 Very but Schimichel was very good. 

Iceland did its thing.  A disappointing tie for Argentina. 

Hopefully tomorrow is a better day for Latin trans.

Schmeichel, perhaps? ;)

I definitely messed up his name!

Messi choked again. Don't they know better not to have him take the penalty kicks?!

He has missed five of his ten PKs. I’m sure he’s not too happy that CR showed him up. 

The Croatia Nigeria match was a bit droll although by that time I’d probably seen enough for the day.

An annoying loss by the Tico to a team whose players are extremely annoying.

Kolarov's free kick was up there with Ronaldo's, possibly better.

The better team won I thought. If Serbia can be more consistent they certainly have the flair and (sometimes annoying) physicality to upset opponents.

And, I've just noticed that the thread title is definitely missing an "a" if not more...

I can't disagree with you that they were a better team but I have a distaste for their players (and the country generally). I hope they're taught a lesson in their next match

Terrific match so far. Hard to say who’s better, even though Mexico has the lead.

The game streamed @my house showed Mexico as dominating team .... Germany better get their thing together rather soon....

An historic win. I was convinced until the whistle that Germany would score. 

Opening matches are not kind to WC Champs.

The Mexican coach was clever, saw the weak spot in the German defense early on and instructed his team - they tried the same trick a dozen times and scored. I wonder why neither Löw nor his players did notice. They woke up much too late.

6 games watched so far this weekend, with one more yet to come. Looking forward to the country grinding to a halt tomorrow after work.

Well played Switzerland. They weren't afraid to go after the Brazilians and deserved the draw

Well deserved indeed. Mexico's win was the highlight of the day's play. Germany appeared pretty diffident. I'm sure they'll improve and wake up to their own combined talent.
