Netherlands v Chile looks to be a good match-up but they will probably be sitting their stars.  Croatia v Mexico should be awesome because it is all on the line!

But USA v Germany - Believe.

yeah netherlands only has 3 regulars in the lineup. this morning's games are terrible. hopefully croatia-mexico will be incredible. these third group games today are hit or miss - either everything on the line or absolutely nothing on the line

Hoping the Croats destroy "El Tri." I may never forgive the "Osama" chants.

I count 8 of 11 as regulars, and their biggest stars are in.  Though, Van Persie is out due to two yellows in the first two games.  Doubt they want to (likely) face Brazil in the next round.  I am surprised Vidal isn't in for Chile, they may be sitting more starters.

I'm 99.9% sure the second group of games today (and for the remainder of the group stage) begin at 4 pm EST rather than 3 pm.

Yep - just checked and they do begin at 4 today.

Mexico looking for only a draw, though they aren't a side built to "play for" a draw.  Croatia needing a win, and could give Mexico fits.  Brazil seemingly through as everyone expects them to easily dispatch Cameroon.  But, can this Brazilian team handle the pressure?

Now the real fun begins!

Wow the referee for Mexico/Croatia is having an awful game. Unbelievable how bad he has been
