    BBC is reporting that police are clashing with protestors outside the Maracana stadium as the Confederations Cup is being played.

    It was Fred. While on the ground.

    It doesn't look too bad so far, I thought Spain would own Brazil right away.

    Ooooh ok I stand corrected. I am a bit surprised at the dominance of Brazil but then again it is "only" a warm up tournament. The WC is a different creature altogether.

    Not even discussing that.
    Seems to be the habit with Brazil: wins Confederations Cup, gets nowhere near the final on WC
    Lead me not into temptation. I can find it, and eat it, all by myself.

    Awww... Brazil is a very young team and very exciting to watch judging by this match. Their chances next year seems to be getting better and better. 2-0!

    David Luiz' save from almost inside the net was great!
    Also loving how the guys are just jumping into the crowd after scoring. It wouldn't have been possible before the renovation.

    And Fred does it again!
    3-0

    I did not see this coming. They are actually playing like a team!

    And Ramos missed the PK... just not happening for Spain today.
    OMG, and Pique just got sent off!

    Uruguay/Italy was a more entertaining match, this is just a beatdown.

    Brazil looks so impressive and Spain does not have a plan B. The missed penalty sums up the night for them.

    Does Brazil ever have Spain's number! I did not expect this at all.

    Call me surprised! Never thought this team could beat mighty Spain (or may be the Brazilian Football Federation sponsored those little parties for Spain on Recife and Fortaleza ).

    And Scolari is a rock star Mano Menezes had basically the same players and never managed to make them really play together as a team.

    Good Grief, El Tri lost another game, this time to Panama in the Gold Cup 2-1. How Chepo keeps his job is beyond me

    Good question. Mexico's B team, the Olympic Gold team, is not quite as strong as Panama's. A surprise, but not that big a surprise. The really big shocker was Canada's 0-1 loss to Martinique on a goal in 2nd half added time (93rd minute?). Is Martinique a country? I thought it was part of France.

    The USA better be ready for a game Tuesday. Our B team is actually a fairly good team, but it seems that the "minnows" are coming to the GC acting more like sharks than anything else.

    Rumour has it that Diego Forlan wants to transfer to Toronto FC but he has denied the rumour. I wonder if it is just wishful thinking on part of TFC.

    MLS would love to have him, be it in Toronto or anywhere else.
