He really adds a cutting edge to their attack. They were practically toothless without him.

Yea, one would have thought they'd seen him score enough goals for Liverpool to know he needed to be marked closely......but, in the end, I'm sure it will be Wayne Rooney's fault....the press just murders him in the UK.   Evil or Very Mad

Huge effort from Uruguay today to move on to the next round. Their hopes for the rest of the Cup may have just bit the dust because of Suarez, though. I admire a guy with hunger but he has to have some discipline too.

Finally some official FIFA news to sink your teeth into: Link


Disciplinary proceedings opened against Luis Suarez

FIFA can confirm that disciplinary proceedings have been opened against the player Luis Suarez of Uruguay following an apparent breach of art. 48 and/or art. 57 of the FIFA Disciplinary Code during the 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil™ match Italy-Uruguay played on 24 June 2014. The player and/or the Uruguayan FA are invited to provide with their position and any documentary evidence they deem relevant until 25 June 2014, 5pm, Brasilia time.

According to art. 77 lit. a of the FIFA Disciplinary Code (FDC), the FIFA Disciplinary Committee is responsible for sanctioning serious infringements which have escaped the match officials’ attention. Furthermore, according to art. 96 of the FDC, any type of proof may be produced (par. 1), in particular are admissible, reports from referees, declarations from the parties and witnesses, material evidence, audio or video recordings (par. 3).

It's Belgium.

We have played them four times since 1995, lost them all. Scores of 0:1, 0:2, 0:1, and 4:2.

The last two were in 2011 and 2013. Fifth time is a charm.

We also apparently had a closed door match with them just before the tournament started, with both teams putting their first and second teams on the pitch for a half. No word on how that turned out that I saw.

Edit: turns out it was called off when Sao Paolo had a transit strike. They didn't want to sit on a bus for 5 hours.

Out of all the Group winners, I would pick Belgium or Costa Rica...  so not a bad draw, IMO.  

On a separate note, it sounds like the same offsite training that I had this morning is having the second session on Tuesday afternoon...

Watching the replay of the Timbers game, and very disappointed with the soccer compared to the World Cup games. Not a single chomped shoulder yet.

Tim Howard with 16 saves today... the most in a World Cup match in 50 years (per ESPN).  Tim kept the USA in the match... it could have been ugly without him.  

It has been great to see the general American interest in the WC this year... lots of people talking about it, record setting TV audiences, etc... I suppose having the games in similar time zones helps.  Russia will not be that way.  Sad

In extra time, Costa Rica seemed to be playing for the shoot-out. I remember thinking, be care what you wish for.

Semis: Germany v Brazil, Argentina v Belgium. I'll bet on a Germany - Argentina final.

Wow. Things get more bizarre in the Neymar incident. It turns out the disciplinary code prohibits the disciplinary committee from doing anything because Carlos Velasco, the ref, saw the incident and did nothing.

But if he HAD done something, they could have reversed it. No wonder he did nothing. His record remains unblemished.

I bet Velasco gets the final.




First and foremost, the chairman of the FIFA Disciplinary Committee wishes to state that he deeply regrets the incident and the serious consequences on Neymar's health.

After an analysis of the matter and the extensive submission and documentation received from the CBF, the chairman came to the conclusion that the FIFA Disciplinary Committee cannot consider this matter in light of the conditions outlined in the FIFA Disciplinary Code (FDC) for the Disciplinary Committee to be able to intervene in such a situation.

In particular, in this specific case, no retrospective action can be taken by the FIFA Disciplinary Committee, since the incident involving the Colombian player Juan Camilo Zuniga Mosquera did not escape the match officials’ attention, which is the first of two cumulative and necessary conditions for art. 77 a) of the FDC to be applied.

Meanwhile art. 77 b) of the FDC, which entitles the Disciplinary Committee to rectify obvious errors in the referee’s disciplinary decisions, equally cannot be applied in this case because neither a yellow card nor a red card was shown by the referee to the player Juan Camilo Zuniga Mosquera. Indeed, art. 77 b) of the FDC stipulates that the Disciplinary Committee may rectify obvious errors in the referee’s disciplinary decisions, which is only possible in the case of mistaken identity when a referee shows a yellow or red card to the wrong player.

It is important to note that the conditions by which the FIFA Disciplinary Committee can intervene in any incident have to be considered independently of the consequences of that incident, such as an unfortunate injury suffered by a player.

Finally, as a general remark, FIFA and the FIFA Disciplinary Committee regret any incidents occurring on the pitch that in particular have a negative impact on the health of players.

We wish Neymar a prompt and complete recovery as we wish the same for all players who have sadly been ruled out of the World Cup through injury.

With regard to CBF’s request for the cancellation of the caution shown to the player Thiago Emiliano da Silva during the match played against Colombia, the chairman came to the conclusion that the FIFA Disciplinary Committee cannot consider the matter given the fact that there is no legal basis entitling it to grant such request.

So... If you pull out a gun and shoot somebody and the ref sees it and does nothing, the chairman has ruled that the disciplinary committee can't look at it. ( he has that power and the power to rule without the committee's input)


I'm not out to get Zuñiga. He defended himself saying he was protecting His country and James, who was fouled harshly at least 11 times with no action.


But wow again

Not sure you want to use the "pull out a gun and shoot somebody" analogy in reference to Colombia footballers.

And...Velasco makes the short list for the final.

World Cup: FIFA deny claims referees have been told to be lenient

FIFA have rejected suggestions that referees have been told not to hand out red and yellow cards in order to provide a more entertaining World Cup.

The spotlight has moved away from the players and onto the referees following Brazil’s bruising quarter-final clash with Colombia, during which Brazil striker Neymar suffered a tournament-ending back injury.

A tournament-high 54 fouls were committed during the game and Spanish referee Carlos Velasco Carballo has faced heavy criticism for allowing 41 unfair challenges to take place before issuing a yellow card.

German newspaper Bild reported that FIFA referees chief Massimo Busacca had told officials to limit cards in order to improve the spectacle, provoking an angry response from FIFA's chief spokesman Walter De Gregorio.

"(The story) that there is a secret plan from FIFA telling the referees not to sanction with yellow or red cards in order to have more entertainment or television shares,” De Gregorio said.

"In other words that FIFA is risking and tolerating that players like Neymar and others are injured. This is just unacceptable."

Brazil’s total of 31 fouls committed during the game with Colombia is their highest in a World Cup match since records began in 1966.

The number of yellow cards during the course of the tournament averages 2.8 per match compared to 3.8 in 2010 and 4.8 in 2006.

"This is part of the game and we accept that," De Gregorio said. "But what we can't accept is the question on an ethical level, that there is a hidden plan from FIFA.

"This goes into the core business - protecting the main actors, the players, it's the most important thing we have to do at FIFA," De Gregorio said.

"We have to protect the players. If Neymar isn't playing the semi-final or the final it's not good for us too."

Meanwhile, Velasco has made the shortlist to referee the final and the Spaniard is joined on the 15-strong list by England’s Howard Webb.

"The (referees') committee defined the list after careful monitoring of all referees and assistant referees on a daily basis together with the technical staff," FIFA said in a statement.

"In line with how designations have been made throughout the tournament, quality was the main criteria while physical, medical and technical aspects were also taken into consideration."
