In Group F, Croatia and Japan had a goalless draw in a game which was competitive and interesting but devoid of the horrific scenes of violence witnessed yesterday by the USA team. Everyone likes to criticise Brazil but the fact is that whenever a player touches the ball, he has 4 or 5 players from the opposing team around him. Even so, Brazil has played two games, has scored 3 goals, has suffered none, has 6 points and is classified to meet one of the teams from Group E. France finally broke its fast with the first goal in the Finals since 1998 but drew 1-1 with the Republic of Korea.
