Gonna be honest friends, I didn’t watch a single one of today’s matches, though it’s true that most of them were on while I was still asleep. But don’t let that stop you from discussing everything that happened on Day 5.

With Colombia-South Korea tonight at 10 p.m. ET, we’ll now through one full round of matches, and we head back to Group A and B.

Here are your highlights, as well as the schedule for Day 6.

Brazil: Borges 19’, 39’, 70’, Beatriz 48’
