The World United Through Football

Group A – Advantage Latin America

With the first two games played in Group A, it’s advantage Latin America.

Brazil and Mexico both came out of their opening games with a maximum three points, and the two will meet up in Fortaleza on Tuesday. while Cameroon and Croatia travel to Manaus.

To say the Amazon climate would benefit the West Africans is something of a cliche, as most of the Cameroon players are based in the Europe.

The opening two games at Brazil 2014 were not without controversy though.

In the opening game of the tournament, the soft penalty awarded to Brazil was hard on Croatia while Cameroon can thank the Colombian linesman for keeping their scoreline down; it should have been three.

These World Cup matches are so important that to let just one person with a flag or whistle be the all-deciding judge sometimes makes a mokery of the technology available to help judicate close calls in a fast-moving game.

If only football fans could be allowed to discuss the performance of players rather than the incompetence of officials.
