I'd like to be a bit more optimistic with history here. The previous World Cup in Chile in 1962. Pele succumbed to injury but Garrincha stepped up to guide Brazil to their second title. Not suggesting that Hulk is as good as Garrincha, he isn't, but maybe he and Oscar can step up to deliver their sixth. Maybe Fred will find form in the semifinal the way Higuain did today. 7+9+11 = 10 can happen in this tournament also. It's a funny game.
"And do not curse those who call on other than GOD, lest they blaspheme and curse GOD, out of ignorance. We have adorned the works of every group in their eyes. Ultimately, they return to their Lord, then He informs them of everything they had done." (Qur'an 6:108)
