I have an office pool going on this, we are finalizing the picks tomorrow right before the first match starts.

Who is your pick?

Germany have been my pick since the beginning but I'd actually prefer to see Brazil win it on home soil.

Chile hits the cross bar 30 seconds left in the clock! It was a beauty of a shot...

Penalties it is...

That was great but the match should have been over in Regular time. Hulk goal was legal I thought

I am not too sure tennisville, I saw a lot of arm there from Hulk before he hit that ball...

The best goal of the tournament has just been scored by James, for Colombia.

Brazil was saved by the goal post. We are lucky, the whole country could have rioted had they lost.

Next match is on, Columbia ahead by a goal.

James Rodriguez is the breakout player of the tournament. That goal was sensational. Reminds me of the goal Maxi Rodriguez scored for Argentina vs. Mexico in 2006.

Brazil have looked pretty underwhelming so far and lucked out against Chile. Colombia could really give them hell in the quarters.

apparently his name is not pronounced "james" but ham-ez (the "ham" part spoken like the first part of "juan").

el legendino aka tim vickery said if you call him james in an interview he stops and leaves as he hates being called "james".

anyway.."JAMES" scored twice, he has 4 or 5 goals now.

knowing me alan partridge, knowing you tennis frontier..ah ha.

Ha...I'm currently on vacation in Lebanon, and the Arabic commentator kept pronouncing his name "hamez" which irritated the hell out of me. Guess he was on to something.

I thought the Dutch were on their way out, and Sneijder comes with a laser in the 87th minute. I am curious to see how the Mexicans react to the equalizer. The Dutch really look sluggish. I am not sure if it is due to the weather.

RVP was a none factor today as he was a bit off but also defended superbly. In fact, Mexico defended superbly for 88 minutes. Not much they could have done with the Sneider goal and the penalty was a penalty as well. 1 minute to go...
