Um, was I the only one to catch the Nigerians totally showing up the Samba Queens in the tunnel, pre-match, this morning? And by showing up, I mean putting on a show for everybody. And when I say trouble, I mean the dancing/singing kind. Brilliant, brilliant moment. And it's likely something the Nigerians do all the time, but in front of this Brazilian side, who, at least to my total surprise, stood there and took it?
