watched the Brazil vs Panama game yesterday... getting excited now as the hosts played on home soil, and the crowd was excitable.

Apparently it's going to be applied as a standard at the WC!

What was also noticeable was how drenched the players and even the referee's shirts were within 20 minutes of what was relatively slow play - a sign of the humidity to come
