      Coutinho hasn't been very good but Brazil just looks uninspired overall. Plenty of possession but no urgency. Need to play much more direct.

      Gabriel Barbosa on for Jonas. Pushed Coutinho in to a central role now it looks like.

      :lmao:

      The Brazilian keeper has dropped the ball in to his own net but thank f**k for him the ball went out (by the slightest of margins) first before the cross came in.

      EDIT: Any Brazilian experts know why Elias and Renato Augusto are playing in midfield? Surely there are better options around?

      Much better game between Uruguay and Mexico apart from the inability to play the correct Uruguayan national anthem, they could be out before Luis is. fit

      Well that turned out a bit sh*t, didn't it? Pretty much everyone is acknowledging someone like Bradley played poorly (as he frequently does...) yet all say "there's no one to replace him." And that's like fundamentally the problem with American soccer. He doesn't even play that well for Toronto, but so shallow is the U.S. talent pool that the American media big him up and make excuses for why he played poorly. And he's the captain FFS. It's a joke, really. Not a single American would get into that Colombian starting XI. Klinsmann might not be a good manager, but until the system can produce better players, every U.S. manager will continue to fail.

      Bradley has pictures of Klinnsman with a prostitute or something. He has to. He flat out sucks. And has for years.

      Both very good players for the Brazilian championship - along with Jadson and Ralf they formed Corinthians midfield, the team that won the league last year quite easily - but not that good for national team standards.

      Both used to play for Flamengo and were very good, I love them but seriously not NT material.

      Kind of a strange match in some ways. Costa Rica was awful, but the US didn't look all that great either. The Americans' finishing was perfect, though. They took pretty much every chance they had. 4-0 helps big time with their goal differential, now +2 going into the last match.

      Coutinho scoring twice for Brazil. 3-0 at HT.

      Looking forward to watching Gabby Barbosa whose come on now. 19 year old who was superb in a youth tournament couple years ago.

      Am I nuts or is Filipe Luis rather average?

      His attack is weak, crosses never hit, link up play always gets messed up when he tries to connect with Phil and his defence is all over the shop.

      Watching him last couple of months and not once has he impressed. 

      Barbosa looking good for Brazil second half. Not much else.

      I wouldn't make much of his hat-trick tbh. Hopefully that helps him consolidate his place in the starting lineup but Haiti players are probably barely professional. I saw them in the Confederations Cup a few years ago against Spain and it was laughable how they struggled to even get past the halfway line - and when they did, the fans would cheer them on for a laugh.

      So true. Was excited when I saw on my Twitter feed that he'd scored a hattrick...then I learned it was against Haiti.

      But how on earth did Brazil concede against them? How does Dunga sleep at night?!!

      Undone by a little bit of pace.  Apparently their first ever goal in Copa America.

      Shhhh! That's the excuse we'd give if someone like Willian got a hat trick, the Chelsea b***ard :D

      Brilliant hat trick. Well done Phil. Player of the tournament :f_tongueincheek:

      Venezuela gone 1-0 up to Uruguay. Rondon gets to a rebound first and Uruguay could be out in the group stages :o

      Always impressed with Jose Maria Gimenez. Can't say i've seen him too many times but about a half dozen times for Uruguay and he always plays very well.

      Cavani open goal from 8 yards and he misses in injury time. Then a loose ball 3 yards out and he can't get a foot on it.

      Anyone still rate him? He's f**king awful.

      He wasn't named in the matchday squad. I don't think he knew that. He was warming up midway through the second half wanting to go on but he wasn't in the substitutes :D

      Thought I'd read that he wasn't going to be fit for the group games somewhere?

      Luis Suarez has hissy fit as Uruguay exit Copa America with defeat to Venezuela 4/41
      The Independent


      Luis Suarez lashes out during Uruguay's defeat to Venezuala (Picture: [copyright])© Provided by The Independent Luis Suarez lashes out during Uruguay's defeat to Venezuala (Picture: [copyright]) Luis Suarez flew into a furious rage last night as Uruguay exited the Copa America.

      The Barcelona striker was sitting on the bench for the 1-0 defeat to Venezuela, a result that meant Uruguay were knocked out of the competition just two games into the tournament.

      Salomon Rondon scored the only goal of the match, reacting to Alejandro Guerra's incredible 50 yard effort which rebounded off the cross bar after goalkeeper Muslera managed to get the slightest of touches.

      With Uruguay trailing, Suarez began to warm up on the sidelines but was overlooked by manager Oscar Tabarez, who brought on Diego Rolan, then Nicolas Lodeiro and finally Matias Corujo.

      Suarez was incensed. The former Liverpool player remonstrated with his manager before punching his fist against the perspex glass on the side of the dugout. He then ripped off his bib and threw it to the ground.

      I guess he was just gutted that he wasn't able to contribute to the game  :(
