    I’m usually all for running up the score in most sports, but the coach jumping off the bench, fist pumping, and screaming for the 13th goal was a little much.

    I'm not too upset by it. The little I've read from the Thai coach says he and his team are still just happy to be in the WC.

    If they're cool with it and are looking at the game as an opportunity to play against the best, perhaps even some of their favorite players/role models/inspirations, and to grow as players, then it doesn't matter what I think.

    Brazil v. France was the best I've seen so far in this WWC. Looking forward to see the US v. Spain in a couple hours.

    Wow. What a gift. When two (questionable) penalties are your only shots on goal, that doesn't say much about your offense. They might be able to win a match like this vs. Spain, but I wouldn't count on it happening vs. the host country, France.
