The scorers have arrived!

Many have made note of the low-scoring nature of the World Cup matches so far. But this is often the case, early in the tournament; teams are initially tentative and cautious, and defensive preparations often carry the result in the early games.

But starting with Brazil's 3-1 thrashing of Cote d'Ivoire yesterday, and continuing with Portugal's 7-nil annihilation of North Korea this morning, it is clear that the offenses have arrived, and goals are now to be had. I could barely blink this morning
between Portuguese goals.

So now, who next? Will Spain be the next side to break out in a big way? Or will it be Chile, one of my favorite squads, as they face the Swiss?

Tune in and see!
