Good morning, everybody. Welcome
Good morning, everybody. MOTD Kickabout,
week four of the World Cup. Very sunny
Quarterfinal stage. We know already Brazil and Germany
have made it through so the hosts are into the last four.
As per usual, everything covered on this week's Kickabout.
We will bring you everything that has happened in the last week,
including a summary of the round 16 and those huge quarterfinal matches.
including a summary of the round 16 and those huge quarterfinal matches.
John Farnworth is here to bring us another amazing Kickin' the Bin. We
will be recreating another World Cup strike. Plus, Kevin Kilbane and
Robbie Savage will join us to have a go at Sav's Big Mouth. I think it is
high time we brought you some World Cup action. Let us wind the clock
back to last Saturday and the round of 16.
The host nation is set for the knockout stages of the World Cup.
Urges the last 16, when or go home. -- it is the last 16, win or go
home. Neymar scores. He has nerves of steel! Brazil win in the most
dramatic of circumstances. The game was magnificent.
Will Columbia be able to cope with the weight of expectation from the
majority of fans supporting them? Rodriguez! Brilliant! Rodriguez,
what a beautiful goal! It is the end of the line for this Uruguayan side
and the first-ever quarterfinal for Costa Rica. Giovani dos Santos!
The Netherlands have turned this around to lead 2-1. It isn't! A
great finish for Costa Rica. -- it is in! Unbelievable. They have done
it again! Du referee indicates penalties. Costa Rica, quarterfinal.
Germany only needed 90 seconds of extra time to score. Germany are
going through. It is all over for Algeria. Algeria have a goal! But
will do it. Yet another incredible game at this quite amazing World
Cup. Germany 2-1 Algeria. Germany march on. The French will have too
much. In Benzema, they have one of the best number nines in football.
Game, set and match to France. They are going through to the
quarterfinals. France have made it through to the quarterfinals.
Argentina get us off under way. The keeper blocks! Lionel Messi! Can he
finally win it? They have won it! Heartache for sites in. Argentina
heading through to the last eight again. We will see you very shortly.
-- heartache. We missed out the USA game against Belgium. There is a
reason for that. America has gone World Cup crazy. Just ask this lady.
You may know me as news anchor Felicity Bond from the BBC. When I
am not reading the news, there is a good chance I will be watching
football. His scores! Lionel Messi! The summer, it is all about soccer!
Football. The entire country is going World Cup crazy. Every World
Cup, it gets bigger. This is the best team we have had. I am so
pumped up about the men's USA soccer team. Not forgetting the president
of the USA who had a message for everybody. I believe that we can
win! At first, it did not look too promising as we were drawn into the
group of death, Germany, Portugal and Ghana. A last-gasp goal against
Ghana and a point against the Portuguese was enough to send us
through. We even stayed on longer than the best player in the world.
Portugal knocked out of the tournament. It came down to this,
winner takes all game against the dark forces of the World Cup,
Belgium. It was the meeting of two former team-mates. We fought for
every ball, covered every blade of grass and gave every last drop of
sweat to get the victory. We could not get it done in 90 minutes. In
extra time... Disaster. We kept the faith until... Game over? Not quite.
Making the run. Yes! It was not to be. This time America has announced
itself to the world. Roll on Russia 2018.
Last night, Brazil were trying to make it through to the semifinals
against Colombia. Huge pressure on the hosts, particularly on the young
man Neymar. He is only 22. The whole country is looking to see what he
can do, particularly in his hometown.
Welcome to the city of S?o Paulo. Home to Neymar da Silva Santos
Junior. This is the street where we lived. Our house is next to the last
car on the right. This is Neymar's uncle. He liked to play on the
slope. It was easier for him to play football down the hill. The street
will be famous if Brazil win the World Cup. Cosme as a hairdresser
and met Neymar after cutting his dad's her. We wanted to be more
creative. I said a Mohawk, like David Beckham. The more radical.
When his father saw it and then his coach asked his father, is this your
son? His father said, blame it on Cosme. Brazilians looked on Neymar
as one of them. This is why he is so popular. When he took to the field
last night, all of Brazil were hoping their boy wonder could take
them a step closer to the cup. Into the Crucible, a test of
tactics, skill, nerve. Who can keep their cool? Brazil have been accused
of being more flaky than formidable so far. Columbia, engaging and
exciting. Brazil have Neymar. Columbia have Rodriguez. What an
occasion. It is an incredible atmosphere. It is a pleasure to be
here. Columbia get the game under way.
Neymar with this corner. It is dangerous. The captain Tyagi Silva
has put Brazil in front! The man who has been having to justify his
captaincy this week and he ducked taking a penalty against Chile and
has been criticised for doing so. But he puts Brazil in front in the
quarterfinal. But ruffled the side netting! Great chance! Good save.
Oscar is onto it. The whistle has gone. They could
have had this game out of sight, Brazil. James Rodriguez clipped it
into the danger area. The flag is up on the near side. Fantastic ball in.
Rodriguez, looks as if he is just It is in! It is brilliant! What a
goal from David Luiz! Perfection. Brazil are within touching distance
of the last four. Side foot, down on it. Great finish. He has got no
right to score from there. He is stripped. It is a penalty kick to
Colombia. What card is he going to get? Yellow. Clear penalty. -- he is
tripped. The rest of this is a Brazilian ordeal. Brilliant from
Rodriguez. Quality penalty. Five minutes to go. The Colombian corner
kick. Neymar still down. I think it is his back he is complaining about.
Yeah. Knee in the back. That is a picture no Brazilian wants to see.
He has not been particularly convincing in the second half. That
visit, Brazil are through! Brazil are into the semifinals of their own
World Cup. David Luiz, the match winner. A stunning free kick. How
they had to hang on after James Rodriguez's penalty. Brazil through
the mill again, but through to the semifinal. Brazil 2-1 Columbia.
Brazil go through to choose their plasma semifinal where they will
play the winner of the other match last night, France versus Germany --
Brazil go through to the semifinal. That was wide from Benzema. Should
have done better. The free kick. It is 1-0. Germany lead.
In a competition of wonderful goals, it is an old-fashioned set piece.
Really clever header from the position he is in. Lovely ball to
Benzema. This time he is onside. In the end, he created the chance for
himself, Benzema. Really should have done better.
That has to be a corner. It is a corner. Everyone in the stadium can
see a deflection. How many times have we seen centre halves do that?
On the edge of the penalty area! Brilliant block.
Benzema, need something special here from him. One-handed. Almost
nonchalant. He is not going to score from there. Sorry. There is a whole
host of players in there. Germany are through to a record-breaking
fourth semifinal in a row. France there- one Germany. We now know half
of the semifinalists. On Tuesday, Brazil will play Germany. On
Wednesday, Holland or Costa Rica will play Argentina RIBA Belgium. --
or Belgium. Wimbledon is on at the same time as
the World Cup. We will bring the two worlds together. Have a go at the
Coppa-Uppy Challenge. How many times can you keep this in your -- in the
air with any part of your body? Tim Henman got 92! The team led by
hacker the dog. 92, Tim Henman did, did he? I can beat that! Easy, this.
Anyone can do it. Bouncy, bouncy, bouncy. Get ready for an epic fail.
How about the back of the neck? The spine! Head. Knows. Cheek.
I bet Sue Barker can't do this! Easy, this. Short but sweet! Keep
up, will you? Gary! Do I get more than one go? Faster now. I bet Andy
Murray could not do this, could he? Here we go. We are doing well here.
Hang on a minute. You can see the green stick. Did Sue Barker try to
sabotage my attempt? Stop now. They conceded is a ball on a stick. Over
to Robbie Savage. Thanks. 91, you are definitely cheating. We are
going to beat it. Easy. That is five on my own. I have just
beaten them! They will be back later to have a go at Sav's Big Mouth. We
have seen great goals at this World Cup. There is also quite a bit that
has gone wrong. 34 cameras covering every single game. We don't miss
anything. Lovely piece of skill. It is going
to be an own goal of John Boye who slices it agonisingly into his own
net. Karim Benzema looking for his third of the tournament. He is
denied. The follow-up surely from him should have been buried?
Good ball in! It is turned into a zone net, the first World Cup goal
in 2014 is an own goal. There is a stumble, that didn't work. Look at
Thomas Muller, that is priceless. All of the goals, all that ability
and a circus tricks too. That was not worked out in training.
He has practically throwing it over his shoulder into the back of the
net! Shocking goalkeeping. We would like to know what you think
has been the best of the worst so far. Head to the MOTD Kickabout
website and you can vote for what he reckons deserves to be crowned epic
fail of 2014. We will reveal which one you voted for in next week's
show. -- we will reveal which one you voted for in next week's show.
The F two boys have agreed to come back again next week and give us
some more alternative spot kicks ahead of the World Cup final. Do not
miss that. Time for more from John Farnworth. He has shown us some
Samba magic. John, what is in store this week?
Unfortunately, I could not get to Brazil. But it does not mean I
cannot get involved in the World Cup action. This is Kickin' the Bin
Brazil style. Sometimes in a game there is not
much space, especially in the World Cup where the standard is so high.
Sometimes we have got to take the ball up into the air. This is what
we call a blind scoop. To do this move, you have to walk up
to the ball, balance it on your foot, flick it up and behind you. It
is all about balance and accuracy. If you find yourself in a tricky
situation, remember the blind scoop.
Throughout this rather lovely World Cup, you have been re-enacting some
of the great goals. We have had lots already and plenty more in the
knockout stages. Here is the re-enactment of one of the great
Colombian moments. The man in the middle of much of their magic is
James Rodriguez. By the way, it says James on the back of his shirt. It
is not James. It is "Ham-ez". We are back again for another goal we
creation. -- we creation. This week, it is all about this piece of
Colombian magic! That was the World Cup second round,
Colombia versus Uruguay. James Rodriguez has given Colombia the
lead with one of the best goals of the tournament so far.
In the second half, Colombia took things to the next level. Gutierrez
plays it to Martinez's feet. They deliver a brilliant ball to the back
post. He guides it back into the six yard box work Rodriguez is waiting.
Great goal! The Colombians sure know how to celebrate a goal. See you
next week. Devastating effect he is having on the World Cup finals.
One other thing that has been popular on MOTD Kickabout have been
Conor McNamara's video diaries. What we are going to do... He has made it
to Rio! I did not think you are coming? I have been in Brazil for a
month. I have finally made it to Copacabana Beach. It has been
brilliant up and down Brazil. I have been in the South, you go to the
games in the evenings, you need a coat in the evenings. I have been to
the Amazon where it is faltering. There are beaches up there tsar. I
got to play beach football -- where it is sweltering. There are beaches
up there too. Lifetime ambition. Wearing a Brazilian top, he comes
running up to me, I do the nutmeg, through his legs, on a beach in
Brazil. Fantastic. Was it first state? We were just playing a game.
-- was it first take? One other thing we have showed you has been
Sav's Big Mouth. We have brought it to Brazil. Now it is the man himself
having a go with his good mate, Kevin Kilbane.
The World Cup officially starts now. Sav's Big Mouth. Kevin, you
have got 20 seconds to get as many balls in that mouth as you can.
Come on, Kevin! Watch the teeth! Get one in! Come on! Watched the teeth!
How rubbish are you? Oh, my word. Horrendous. That was zero. How did
you play in the Premier League? Useless. Difficult score to beat.
Three. Two. One. Go! So close! Two! Sorry. Just after the buzzer.
Not as good as Michael Lohan who got six. You are the champion of Ipanema
Beach. Were? Robbie Savage goes to the top of our
leaderboard, overtaking Danny Murphy. Hopefully we will have a bit
more of Sav's Big Mouth next week. Kevin Kilbane sent us a letter. He
said, please do not talk about that. A career low for Kevin. We
promise never to mention it again. Two more quarterfinals to tell you
about. Make sure you are somebody if you can stay up to watch the match
at 9pm. Tell them it is important. It is a World Cup quarterfinal. You
have to be there. This is what you have got to look forward to. See you
next week. He struck it perfectly. Costa Rica,
quarterfinal! Belgium heading to Brasilia where they will face
Argentina. Can Lionel Messi finally win it?
