Nate Silver Day 19: But for a Dummy
Japan had Belgium by the balls, up 2-0 in the second half. Somehow. Belgium managed to rally for three goals and send Japan packing. A huge win went up in smoke. Bad times Japan.
In other news, Brazil still looks like the team to beat. Belgium will take their crack at it, but they'll need to play much better than they did against Japan.
Nate is neutral in the Switzerland-Sweden game, and is skeptical England will continue their march in the world cup.
