Mexico also looked excellent in their 3 - 0 victory over Cameroon that featured two goals by Giovani dos Santos (oh wait a minute, two more awful decisions by the officials took both dos Santos goals off the scoreboard). Well anyway, they looked strong in their 1 - 0 victory over their African rivals.
In the final match of the day, Chile scored twice within two minutes early in the first half and looked like they were ready to route the Socceroos. The surprising Australians fought back and gave Chile a real scare the rest of the way, but a late goal sealed the victory for Chile 3 -1.
The tournament has seen the expected stars of each team rising to the occasion. Neymar scored twice in the opener for Brazil. Robben and van Persie netted twice for Holland and Alexi Sanches scored Chile's first.
If you are like me and don't have anyway to watch the World Cup from home or you actually have a life that doesn't allow you to watch 6 hours of soccer every day, I recommend my favorite website http://www.footytube.com/ to catch up on all the highlights. If you haven't seen Robin van Persie's header yet, it was an amazing goal worth watching (even for a Manchester United player, why did he ever leave Arsenal?).
