Brazil vs. Chile instant analysis

Monday June 28th, 2010

This game is going to be like eating a doughnut -- try getting through it without licking your lips. Brazil will have Kaka, who looked to be finding his way into the tournament before being sent off against Ivory Coast, back, and will hopefully bring Robinho back in to exploit gaps in the Chilean defense. Because Chile plays the kind of sumptuous attacking soccer crowds and counter-attacking teams like Brazil love. Goals! Lots of lovely goals, that's what I'm looking for!

Kickoff is at 2.30 p.m. ET, so join me online from 2.15 p.m. for a couple of hours of soccer and larks -- email Warning: messages will be filtered for the words 'England', 'abject' and 'failure' and bounced to the trash, if I get my way.
