CHI – CHI – CHUPAME!!!!
Chile, all class that lot.
Speaking of class and wonderful spontaneous celebration, here are the Icelanders getting their street dance on now that the knockout rounds are on. (it’s really fun)
To add to the fun the Irish brought their celebration to the round of 16 as well turning one street into a bullring and then for the second time in the past two weeks, performing some street-side car repair as the rest of the gang found a beautiful girl to serenade and we remember the love they showed to grandma and grandpa ahead of the Sweden match in Paris.
uh-oh got stuck in moderation
Chile doing the business early?
Too many links. Three shall be the number of the counting. Five is right out.
This kooks like they want to beat the Mexico score.First goal was a complete gift by Cuadrado.
How was that not a penalty? The Colombian player ran over and body checked the Chileno.
Now the game is delayed for 30 minutes? Anybody knows what is going to happen if they can’t resume it tonight?
When the World Cup was in the US some years ago, the Brazilian team was based in Los Gatos, CA. It’s kind of a party town anyway, with several bars along the main drag. With the Brazilians there, it was nuts.
@Onkel Fritze: If it’s lightning there may be a 20-minute delay after the all-clear is sounded. So depends on when those clouds we saw in the opening panoramic shot of the stadium pass through.
@Steeplejack (phone): I figgered that was the case.
@humboldtblue: Not really an answer, since my question was what happens if they don’t resume?
@Onkel Fritze: Sorry, I can only assume that if the match is suspended it will be re-started as soon as possible the following day but that can also be dependent on how much time has passed. This suspension happened at halftime so they will re-start from halftime when the weather allows. That could be in an hour or tomorrow, but they will play the second half.

If they can’t play it tonight, it’ll be restarted at 2pm local time. In a normal league match, it’d probably be an abandonment and a replay (which would suck for Chile) but tournament rules apply here.

Restart at 10.25pm CT.
There we go again. The wet pitch is not going to work to Colombia’s advantage, having to catch up 2 goals. My commentators here on Colombian TV are currently going nuts, saying that should have been a penalty.
And it’s over. 1 man and 2 goals down against Chile, no way.
