Brazil against my favourite Iran; this because I already follow Iran after I’ve worked there. I’m curious what they will do the next game against Paraguay. And Italy with their solid defence had to swallow four goals from Egypt.
Then Thailand with maybe the most creative players. In my time as their coach I always hammered away at the defence. But what I feared with the definitive selection of the players, no defenders like Cor and Djob, appeared without mercy in the game against Azerbeidzjan. When you score 8 goals, you should not receive 13 goals against. And 25 goals against in four games is way too much.
Okay, quarter finals with Azerbeidzjan and Egypt as surprises; let’s see if they will stunt again.
