GRIFFINDINHO-I thought you were fan of football(soccer), but I guess I am wrong. Who cares about the past you say? That is the most ridiculous comment I heard in a long time. If you are best at something, does it mean you have to win every time? So I guess Brazil should win every single football competition there is, in your logic since they are the best? Wait a minute, Brazil is not the best since they lost to Bolivia 2-1 in WCQ recently, so I guess Bolivia is the best team I guess?

"We started strongly and penned South Korea back in their own half, but then we made errors and fell behind. I think we reacted well in the second half and we equalised, but at the end of the day, our opponents' pace meant they were better than us and they wrapped it up on the break. The result changes nothing at all for us, because I'm not going to go mad about a single game. I believe in my lads, and we'll go into the game against Algeria with lots of heart and in good shape mentally."
Roland Marcenaro, Uruguay coach
