Ronaldo tops the charts as rocky Brazil roll on

I've really become anti-Brazil. The sense of entitlement by their fans in Germany was gross. That, coupled with an alarming lack of knowledge of A: their own squad and B: other teams and the tourny in general pissed me off. They only wanted to party and bow beneath their soccer gods. Which isn't bad I guess but I was in "super-serious soccer fan mode" and it didn't sit with me.

it's nearly a miracle that Ronaldo can even score, given that he lumbers around the field barely able to carry the heft of his immense body. individually, they're too selfish to play the beautiful futbol the media has hyped.
