Well said, LoroUSA. They seem pretty unstoppable right about now. However, I'd like to see just how well ESPANA can really do against them. Sounds like an interesting outcome.

To all tico fans: if Brazil plays like they did against you, they will score 5 or more goals against any team in the world, except maybe my beloved Spain (maybe they'll only score 3 or 4 against us), :). So don't feel too bad. The only hope for the rest of us is the knowledge that Brazil doesn't always play at this level. If we catch them on an off day...anything can happen. But if they continue to play at that same level, I don't see anyone stopping them.

"This has been a very, very tough experience for us. To concede so many goals is very hard to take. I thought we were playing well until for 22 minutes but after that point we went downhill tactially, physically and mentally," Ronald Gonzalez, Costa Rica coach.
