Disagree. He wasn't actually bad against Chile. He did everything he could, dribbled some guys, gave some great passes. Him and Silva were the only ones actually trying. Not his fault he's surrounded by Costa, Pedro, Xabi Alonso ( :rofll: ), Busquets, Alba....

Can't wait for Suarez vs. Italy. Should be a cracker.

He was ok, but nothing special, and that was against weak opposition. Against quality opposition in the first game he was very disappointing.

Whilst I agree that the likes of Iniesta and Busquets are overrated vastly by the clueless on tv, press, here etc, to call Australia quality opposition is a bit far fetched.

There's a reason why they made their own version of football. It's cos they aren't very good at this one

Underestimate us at your peril. We played far far better than Spain did against the same opponents.

Creating this version of football hasn't seem to have done you any favours.

Got to remember Vidal is probably nowhere near match fitness either. Same with Suarez. Two remarkable footballers.

Agreed, but that doesn't change the fact that they haven't been all that good this WC yet.

Suarez just scored 2 goals and knocked England out. That was with 50% match fitness. If anything, it makes it a super duper achievement.

He didn't really do much the rest of the match though, and with Jagielka and Gerrard in the side he probably should've scored more.

I know but I couldn't think of any other central midfielders and he was good vs. Spain.
