I watched the game yesterday. Obviously the and they want -- comfortably I have to say that camera in -- -- -- -- in the first stop in particular. At the moment let's let my -- -- -- others what worries me about them is someone like. Aaron Robin all of that's a in Holland even chilly in the next round.

On the -- time Brazil -- scoreless over the overtaking about the about it yesterday. Which is pretty scary stuff really yet young -- right there are so let's talk about Mexico the dam finally broke the goals came in bunches. They have any chance and their second round game against the Dutch. Well I mean we distilled an element that Robin and he was suspended yesterday he'll be back. But the -- Mexico and fun times that he's such a show up that -- symbolic qualifying. But that's all over the place.
