    Yup. Big win by Japan in the opening game.

    Croatia and Morocco tied 0-0 which is good for Canada. Lets hope Belgium can be another team that is upset, but doubt it. If Canada loses, hope they keep it close and its only 1-0 or 2-1 at least. A tie would be huge!

    I'm a big fan of the Belgians. They have a lovely country, are fantastic people and I love to visit. They have some wonderful footballers. But I'll be fully behind the Canadians tonight!

    He never looked confident. Still, a good start. They are playing well.

    Canada clearly outplayed Belgium. You can't give up that goal to end the half; absolutely not acceptable.

    Alphonso needs to be better, but I don't think he's fully fit, did not have that typical explosion.

    So many chances. Very frustrating result.

    Frustrating result, but a very, very good showing overall.

    Didn't catch the game but the stats look promising. Canada had a lot of shot attempts, even on corner kicks, and possession was only 53-47.

    I saw a twitter highlight of a non-penalty in the first half, Canada was robbed by the ref.

    Also saw a highlight of the goal. Pretty dumb lapse in positioning...

    I just saw that on Tim @ Sid, the Belgium Coach admitted Canada played better, just couldn't score.

    Whatever formula is used to determine expected goals, doesn't seem to take the quality of the shot into play.
    14 shots in the first half, and only two on the net. Like, is the net not big enough?
