  1. As expected, Chile came to park the Bus.
    AS expected, Chile employed their chop and drop techniques.
    AS expected, as I stated yesterday, officiating has been suspicious for both COPA and EUROS, it must have been a MEMO to all REFs. don’t call 60% of fouls.
    AS expected and it’s been a while, Bravo of course had to turn to Wolverine from X-Men and stop everything.
    I HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR MARTINEZ to come around and mentioned this many times on here, FINALLY and even NICO was defending his ass off so I cant complain.
    DePaul missed a few passes initially but made up for it for the rest of the game.
    DEBU, GREAT job staying awake but the team got a little weak at the knees before the goal, they need to knock that shit off.
    6 points, Messi is ok and we’ll go from there, BTW that damn stadium was the same from the 2016 COPA Final.
