From the top of my mind, I count 5:

Nigeria against Greece
South Korea against Nigeria
Japan against Denmark (2)
Uruguay against Ghana

There could be more, but 1 or 2 tops.

One of these days I had a good laugh at the expense of a couple of
acquaintances who criticized teams like France which, in theur opinion, were
using players who were not actually French.

Mind you, their remark was not racist by any means. She was just whining
about what they perceived as "cheating", using players you should not be
allowed to because of their origins.

Before clarifying that those players indeed are actually French (just to
stop at this example), I asked them how rich is it that Brazilians, of all
people, could be complaining that a NT is able to field nationals of various
ethinicities. Like us, or American countries in general, are the only ones
allowed to do so.

In short, there is no point to such remarks (especially as usually people
don't even bother to check the facts before making them). People either want
to vent their prejudices, or just want to bash other teams for no good

I like to think that I can always be influenced by the evidence
before me. Before this tournament I agreed with you 100% about Tevez,
but he was genuinely great and showed me all kinds of ctonrol that I
never knew he had. But you're right, Forlan is better, and I'd call
him the player of the tournament if he didn't have a habit of
disappearing from time to time.

Are you suggesting that if a female just on the slimmest chance
developed into the greatest footballer known to man she wouldn't be in
a World Cup?
