Wealth disparity is not a problem, the problem are the lazy-asses with an entitlement mentality who ruin up the whole country. Nowadays some trucking companies are even hiring Colombian drivers...

Neymar got a fracture in a vertebra after a Colombian kicked him in the back. And Argentina is classified for the final match. I'd actually like Brazil vs Argentina to be the final match, but anyway it would be still nice to see the local president Dilma Roussef having to deliver the trophy to the Argentinians. This way, the ***** would never get reelected, not even elected as the manager for an apartments building...

I'm still not sure I understand why they just didn't use some magic spray on Neymar's back and put him back in the game
Seems like a bad coaching decision to take him out like that

Felipćo is a good coach, the problem is that CBF is more involved with politics than with the sport.
