    Nice to hear Tim Vickery at a more sensible time. Always liked the World Football Phone in but they moved it later and later on 5 Live of a Friday and I'm usually too pissed / tired to stay awake for it.

    there have been lots of great open games thats for sure, and you get a sense of a nice atmosphere in the stadium

    The 8.30-9.00 kick offs, most have gone to extra time or penalties so is it because we're watching them just before we go to bed or are in bed that make us think they have been great or have they actually been great games.

    Does bouncing the ball before a tennis serve mean anything to anyone?

    the earlier games are being played in higher temperatures and are usually slower and muddled as a result, the later ones have been decidedly better i think
    once it gets to knock out the games should all be good as you have to open up to stay in. France v Germany was an exception....

    The only decent pundit across both channels IMO

    Nah, knock out games are usually more boring cos they desperately don't want to concede. Tonight's was the exception. How many of the last stage finished goalless and went to extra time?

    From Twitter: Now "just like watching Brazil" means watching someone acting like a thug while the police look the other way.

    Costa Rica vs Greece first half was a bit dull but otherwise the last 16 matches, (I missed a couple) were great.

    & also while most of us are at work or going home from work. Dont get me wrong i think i have seen some of the best games ever & im going back to 74/78 but hey have been the later games.

    Vickery is by far and away the best football commentator in the world ...(Sid Lowe is the only other name I have any respect for) ... Vickery will be on five live in a hour or so ... but I always download the weekly podcast - unmissable.

    He's good on info but that makes him basically a statto. Got bored with him years ago. I prefer a good ex-pro pundit to a nerd.

    Neymar injury is serious apparently. Fred to step up.

    He will be wheeled out, injured or not.

    The words "vertebral split" suggest otherwise.

    that sounds very very serious - much more than a bite

    its was a cynical challenge too - he did seem to blatantly go in with his knee in order to hurt him

    brazil team doctor just on tv says too early to say on neymar.

    vickey's not a statto! he combines social commentary with football. 90% of other "journos" just regurgetate twitter facts all day long. vickery thinks, weighs, considers, ponders aloud, insight .. what more do you want??!

    Gotta disagree. Brasil were probably better in the first half, but the Yepes goal should never have been disallowed. The replay we saw here showed a clear onside. Colombia should never have conceded the first goal, but with the way things were going at the end, they might have nicked it in extra time. Reffing was appalling. I hate the conspiracy theory stuff, but it's hard to see where the "fair play" element was in action in allowing Cuadrado and James to be clattered time after time with nary a sanction. Oh aye, and shouldn't Julio Cesar (last man) have been sent off for the foul?

    said Neymar injury 'benign', but no conditions to play this week. such a shame, he could have won for Brazil on his own.

    ignoring incidents i think if you had to score the teams out of 10, brazil would have scored higher than colombia, so the scoreline was pretty much fair when all is said and done at the end of the day etc

    ive changed my mind on the replay of the offside/disallowed goal, it was a tiny bit off (whether the two offside players were interfering in play is something else)
