Liam Brady on Luis Suarez: “I think [Suarez] should get longer than he did back after the [Ivanovic bite]. Then he should be taken to the dentist and have his teeth extracted.”

Where we were today

Our man in Brazil, Mikey Stafford, reported from his base in Recife.

“The city of Recife was built on land reclaimed from the sea by Dutch settlers in the 17th century and became the capital of the short-lived but mind-bogglingly profitable colony of Nieuw Holland.

“The state of Pernambuco, rich with coffee and Brazilwood, was always coveted by European settlers and, as the port on the most easterly point of this giant country, Recife expanded to meet the needs of the Dutch.”

The fixture list

Japan take on Colombia and Greece face Ivory Coast later in Group C of the World Cup this evening.

  • Meanwhile, France face Ecuador and Hoduras are up against Switzerland in Group E at 9pm.
