Febottini, have you attended any match yet ? I heard Manaos, Belo Horizonte and two other cities where matches are played are very dangerous cities because of the gangs !

Actually some sorts of time outs were planned for this edition to let players rest and drink due to exceptional weather conditions. Very short. 3 min each half time. But so far no referee used them. And as far as reporters said in Manaus they were badly in need

 Yup ! Manaos is a city built in the Amazonian tropical Forest so it's hot and extremely humid...very hard to endure but Italy was sharp !!!

 I did not like what the referee did in the Germany vs Portugal match...He had his evil mind set to take away all chances for Portugal, which he did ! This kind of referees should be fined hard or fired on impulse !!!

Brazilians are very friendly.

 

And we love football. We can't talk about any other thing except World Cup. It's football the whole day, everyday... it's like heaven.  :D

it must be very hard to compete in that kind of weather?

 

how much water can you even drink to match the sheer water loss through perspiration and respiration?!

 

I think it would be impossible to keep up the re-hydration?

 

what do they drink....just water?

 

or are they drinking some gatorade or powerade style drink for electrolytes?

Spicy, it's not so hot. Actually, it's fall here.

But people from North hemisphere are not used it... the same way, players from South are not used to cold weather.

C'est la vie!

True, they do have some and a short half time. But is not nearly as bad as an American football game. Try catching one of those on TV if you haven't yet - commercials and breaks big time! It drives me crazy. So much so I'll typically only catch the Superbowl. lol  :D I'll take a soccer/football game any time.

Yeah....You must be excited about everything, Febottini ! Hey ! I also love the Jazz Musician Antonio Carlos Jobim, which is a native Brazilian !

 

On another note: Russia-South Korea 1-1 !

Tonight : Holland will beat Australia, Spain will either be defeated or make even with Chile and Croatia will have a tough match against the Untamed Lions of Camerun...Croatia is good though: they might win or make an even match....
