Brazilians are blaming Mick Jagger for the Brazil's worst lost in the World Cup History, they lost to Germany 7-1. Mick Jagger was rooting for Brazil to win the game he even watched the game with his son who was wearing Brazil kit.

Too bad for Brazil Mick Jagger has a bad reputation of giving the team that he is supporting bad luck. Back in 2010 World Cup that was held in South Africa he was at the game supporting England, they lost to Germany 4-1 in the elimination round. He also predicted that Italy would defeat Uruguay to reach the elimination round but it was Uruguay who won 1-0. Then he said that Portugal will win and reach the round of 16, they didn't they were eliminated in the group stage.

When England was against Uruguay, he said on Twitter: "Let's go England! This is the one we win!!!" They lost to Uruguay 2–1.

World Cup 2014 coverage USA lost to Belgium 2-1

I've called it last night that USA will lose to Belgium 2-1!  And it was an intense game, in the 2nd half stoppage time, US was so close and nearly won the game that would have sent them to the quarterfinals for the first time since 2002. Unfortunately, US had a terrible miss and some confusion about a call that might or might not have occurred.

U.S. striker Chris Wondolowski got in the game as a substitute in the 72nd minute, was in a great position to score very close to the goal. Midfielder Jermaine Jones pass the ball through a header to a free Wondo with a very reasonable spacing and with Belgian goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois not in a position to catch or deflect the ball. And he missed!

World Cup 2014: USA vs. Belgium

USA, Belgium, World Cup 2014

It is not do-or-die match between USA and Belgium and I'm definitely certain this will be an exciting game. Too bad this game will be held at 4 p.m. ET, where you at, at that time? Like every hard working American, at work. FIFA app or the ESPN app will come in handy this time, be sure you have it installed in your smartphone or you'll be sorry.

I also heard on the news that U.S. coach Jurgen Klinsmann is not a fan of Algerian referee that will officiate this game named Djamel Haimoudi. Haimoudi has officiated two African Cups of Nations and a couple of early World Cup 2014 games. The coach said that Haimoudi is a French speaker and he can speak to the Belgians well which may give them an advantage. In my opinion, that's a silly reason. World Cup 2014 is a world sport, don't expect that everyone speaks your language.

I got a bad feeling that US will lose this game, I'm calling it 2-1 Belgium.
