Brazil playing against Brazil The Costa Rica v Brazil game was great. 5 to 2, lots of shots, few fouls, wide open play, amazing footwork, passes, flips, flicks and bicycle kicks. At least one of the best goals of the tournament, if not a few. Costa Rica gave Brazil a run for their money, and kept trying til the end. Feel sad that they are going home.

Italy v Mexico was also a good match, I'm not sure that Italy really deserved the tie. They were outplayed by Mexico for the most part, except on the few occassions (including the one goal) where the Italian brilliance came out. They just couldn't finish. The mexican goal was certainly in the top 10 of best 2002 world cup goals. A beautiful nod across the goal mouth, away from the line of attack.
