Brazil 3 - 1 Ivory Coast
by Jon Lymon (U14413570) 20 June 2010
Ah, they'll always get a reaction out of the armchair fan, the Brazilians. An 'ooo' if they're under performing. An 'aaa' if they turn it on a little bit and remind us of Brazil circa 70, 82, 94, 98, 02 etc etc. Today was an 'aaa' with some goals that pleased the eye and some passes that delighted the other eye. Sure it got a little spicy towards the end as the tackles went flying in. But by then, we'd seen enough to know that this Brazil team could go all the way. Even without Kaka, who was sent off for moving his arm, fractionally and without aggression, into a body part of an Ivorian who then pretended it was his head. Bless.
