Giuseppe Rossi rested yesterday (YAY!) after playing well in Italy's first match. He seems to be OK.
Cristián Zapata did not play in Colombia's match against Bolivia.
Hernán Pérez did play in both Paraguay games; he started in their loss against Peru, looked pretty good but was removed after 66 minutes for tactical reasons. He came on late in the game (80th minute) last night and did very well, helping to set up Paraguay's tying goal in the dying seconds.
Jefferson Montero returned to the Ecuador squad and started last night against the USA. I have to confess I only got to watch the first 40 minutes or so and even then couldn't totally focus on it (I was supposed to be participating in a conference call!!) but it seemed to me he did OK, certainly beat Bocanegra for pace and was far more dangerous down the left and cutting into the middle than former VCF man Antonio Valencia was down the right--he was completely anonymous.
I did watch Santi Cazorla in action yesterday for Spain and nearly lost it when one of the ESPN Spanish-language announcers referred to him as the "heart of the Yellow Submarine" and the other said "of course, he's now at Málaga". Santi did everything except score--he put a shot over an open goal and could've converted another chance--but he and David Silva were just as awesome as they were in Foxborough this summer. Hopefully Silva will be so exhausted that he won't be part of the Man City squad to face us in a week's time. We can hope....
