Brazil beat Belgium with two very good goals. Belgium could have scored several themselves however. Brazil v England now on Friday. Definitely winnable for England, could be a classic.
U.S beat Mexico quite comfortably and and make a bit of history for themselves. Germany next for them.
The Guardian wrote a funny minute by minute match report which basically took the piss out of the American penchant for mangling the lingua franca of the game. Gary Lineker on the BBC quoted it as if it was an actual report from a U.S website. Oh dear.
