Mexico has posted a 5-2 (W-L) record against Brazil. I can’t think of any other team who’s performed better against Brazil. So it should be a GREAT game, and a great ending to this tournament. I think the world like this match-up.

Japan did very good. They played interesting games throughout the tournament. The high pressure defense just didn't happen today. Be proud of the accomplishment.

Japan (and South Korea) were way too cautious (and boring) in this game. You will never score playing the ball across the backline. Japan needed to be more urgent, especially when they were doen 2-1.
