    To tangent quickly to the commentary teams - Ally McCoist is the best commentary analyst at this tournament by far. Kilbane is decent. The rest are ducking awful.

    Senegal are very quick on the ball, incredibly athletic team. They're very persistent with claiming injury though. They will stay down until play is stopped, no matter how long it takes.

    Not in my opinion, I feel like Colombia have more talent on their team - but I suppose I could just be less knowledgeable regarding Poland and Senegal. I guess we'll see their levels when they play against each other anyway, not like much of a wait is coming.

    Well played Japan. Excellent performance. Deserved victory.

    Crazy really. Japan v 10 Colombians are still tough odds for them. They're one of the favourites for a reason. This commentary team don't seem to think much of Colombia, they keep saying they're on the same level as Poland and Senegal.

    Good first half. Colombia being down to 10 men has made this more interesting. Its very open.

    Neuer also played a part in that - if you watch him a lot, he always grabs the ball very quickly and immediately puts it back into play whenever the ball comes back out quickly. Even if it hits the back of the net (on those odd occasions it bounces off the net like the net is a brick wall). There are a lot of goals scored against Neuer not given (well, far more than against the average GK). That side of his game has been scuppered by goal-line tech, but he still has the habit.

    Championship walls rarely jump. Always made up of unfit players using the opportunity for a breather.

    Cheeky freekick - although it resulted from Falcao fouling the defender and then being awarded a FK for his efforts.

    No yellows are if you commit a foul that results in a penalty while attempting to play the ball (so cynical fouls are still reds). Handball preventing a goal scoring opportunity is still always a red, in our out of the box.

    Rams or England ?

    As of right now, probably World Cup - because I actually quite like the England squad at the moment, and that success would be generally universally celebrated across the country. Most times though, it would be Derby - because I usually don't like the England players. I'd love for a lad like Weimann to have an FA Cup win to his name though.

    Thought, like many, that Trippier was our motm. Naturally the award went to Kane but Trippier didn't put a foot wrong all game. Also: Worth adding, that's the highest number of chances one player has created in this World Cup so far.

    Loftus-Cheek needs to start next game for me, he plays with so much freedom. Rashford did well too.
