    Wasn't a quarter final though, but yes. I think any team eliminated through a penalty shootout is going to feel pretty lousy. I sometimes wonder whether a coin toss wouldn't be kinder.

    120 minutes really. Yes but reducing numbers on each side after 90 minutes, and so on, would be much fairer.

    Japan out through penalties. Penalty shootouts have to be the most stupid way to resolve a deadlock ever devised. Brazil slaughtering Korea, as expected, but still disappointing.
