Can we stop with the big population argument for once? China, India and the US would be powerhouses.

Brasilians are usually very supportive if not indifferent about Mexico. Yet now for some reason they’re constantly bashing. For some reason the English site has more negativity than the Spanish site. What’s this due to? Either way, I wish Brasil luck. Yet I hope Mexico wins Gold in this tournament (NOT SAYING THEY WILL BECAUSE JAPAN IS LIKELY TO ELIMINATE THEM). Brasil can win gold in 2016 in front of their crowd.
