Brazil Edge Chile, Costa Rica Edge Greece, Colombia Defeat Whiners, Robben & Holland Fly On, Water Breaks = Bullshit

Today's Schedule

Happy Monday, Campers! Loads to get through today, but let's begin with this: Water Breaks. They are, quite simply, bullshit. They are an opportunity for additional advertising. If SPECTRE FIFA are really concerned about players needing a drink of water because of the heat and humidity, don't schedule a match in a place that is hot and humid. And then play in the middle of the day. Assholes. One more thing: Robben is a diver. He always has been. (Where does he rank among the all-time best divers?) We all know that. But the penalty he won against Mexico was just that. A penalty. A foul was committed by Márquez when he stepped on Robben's foot. That certainly doesn't excuse the theatrics, though. Hey Jan Molby! What can SPECTRE FIFA do to end theatrics in football?

OK, that's done. The Round of 16 gave us much Drama over the weekend. Here's your lot:

Brazil 1 - 1 Chile (Pens 3-2): Daniel Taylor at Estádio Mineirão
David Ornstein: All hail Cesar
James Young: Brazil survives

Colombia 2 - 0 Uruguay: Owen Gibson at the Maracanã
Gabriele Marcotti: Colombia exorcise ghosts
Uruguay President Jose Mujica: Fifa "a bunch of old sons of bitches" 

Holland 2 - 1 Mexico: Sid Lowe at Estádio Castelão
Andrea Canales: Mexico's dream dies
Grant Wahl: Five Thoughts

Costa Rica 1 - 1 Greece (Pens 5-3): Paul Wilson at Arena Pernambuco
Costa Rica 1 - 1 Greece (Pens 5-3): Mark Ogden at Arena Pernambuco

File this one in the "Oops" category. File this in the "Really?!?!" category.

Rumors! Gossip! Rumours! Speculation! The Mill. Plus One. Plus Plus One.

France vs. Nigeria

Germany vs. Nigeria
Gabriele Marcotti: Midfield dilemma for Low

Really, KLM??!!

We'll conclude with Five Crazy Things You (might have) Missed.
