I know it's Brazil, but that was crap defending.

Crap defending? Those were spectacular goals. Did you see how far out Alves was when the first goal was developing? He ran a freakin' mile to get to that play, and got there just in time to one-time a shot shat went in off the far post. Undefendable. And Pato's goal, how sweet was the touch to control and then shot. You think that was crap defending? Watch the video again--a touch with the right foot to settle the ball, then immediately plant it, spin and strike the ball with the left. Goalie *could* have stopped it, but to call that crap defending is to totally underestimate the speed and grace with which Pato did that. Fabulous stuff.
