    I really wanted Willian's shot in the 2nd half to have gone in. Nice move and great shot.

    That's a great read. I figured Mexico were already tiring but this tells me there was much more to it. I wish I could watch the game and pay attention to these tactical changes on the fly.

    I didn't like that Fagner and Filipe Luis were beaten so easily a few times on 1v1 in the beginning of the game. That's something to watch out for.

    Really hot at the game. No complaints with my seat. Only one negative incident was a wasted Mexican fan in front of me who was trying to pick a fight with Brazilians. Security asked for his girlfriend to control him.

    Heading to Kazan tomorrow! Vamos lá porrrraaaaa! 20180702_182532.jpeg

    Mexicans got that Aztec warrior gene in them, which is also why they're such sore losers. O choro e livre, chicanada!

    I had a chance to re-watch the game and the change from 4-1-4-1 to 4-4-2 bringing back Paulinho and pushing Neymar up was clear at the 20th minute. Great adjustment by Tite indeed. After that, Mexico were basically unable to find free space between the lines in our defense.

    Tite is making some great in game adjustments when needed.

    Wow that’s insane.
    So envious.

    Are you staying there through the finals?
