    Come on Uruguay!

    2:1. You can do it again.

    Don't you just love winding Brasso up?

    Now, now ChrisR-

    In the spirit of sportsmanship, please. Brasil is the host country of the World Cup after all.

    Or, are you just being charitable and merely voting for the underdog ?

    If it was for the underdog, we'd be voting for England in the groups stages against Uruguay and Italy.
    But maybe Woy's tactics of using youth may work?
    I still see Suarez doing well in this tournament and then off to Real Madrid for £100m.

    “Or, are you just being charitable and merely voting for the underdog?”

    Cheeky devil!

    Nothing of the underdog about Uruguay.

    There are 65M in the UK who “could” back England, but not many will after the cut across the throat caught on camera!

    I will stick with my new country, there are only 3M or so, but they will ALL be rooting for Uruguay. :o)

    Ola ChrisR-

    Excellent. I'm sure it will be a good competitive match.

    Just curious, but when you state “ rooting ” for Uruguay, do you mean it in the English, or Australian sense of the word ?

    Chelsea's Oscar righly says, ”If we do (win), Brazil will stop, there will be a two-year non-stop party.”
    I'm sure that the PT will just love that....which means they can relax, they can be the cause and culprits of the biggest scandals ever, but the “people” will be too occupied comemorating to see all the filth going on in the government. Poor Brazil !!

    @ 5 BOTINHO

    Naughty boy, trying to put bad words in my topic: that’s MY job! :o)

    No, I mean really supporting the Uruguayan team.

    The England “team” are a bunch of overpaid individuals who couldn’t score in a brothel.

    The manager was quite right to draw his finger across his throat at the mention of Uruguay!
