Good evening one, and good evening all. Tonight, we will be bringing you yet another live blog, this time of the Group A match between Brazil and Mexico, and we’ll be doing it with a twist. According to the French mathematician Emile Borel, if you give an infinite number of monkeys an infinite number of typewriters, one of them will come up with the complete works of Shakespeare. We like to think that it’s a philosophical point that we prove on a daily basis here a 200%, but it does prove something significant – that words are easy, especially these days, when everyboy uses keyboards to such an extent that even the art of tidy handwriting seems have become a thing of the past.

Art, however, is different. Art requires a spark from within the soul which alights the imagination. So tonight, we will be bringing you the Brazil vs Mexico match live, using drawings. Perhaps we will use watercolours. Perhaps we will use oils. Well, perhaps not. My personal favourite artistic medium of choice is that most venerable pieces of computer software, MS Paint, but this evening we are going off-piste and you can get involved as well! Simply email your doodlings to here, and perhaps we’ll be able to create a Vision On style gallery of masterpieces for the ages. Perhaps we’ll rustle up a prize for the best piece that we receive. It would be for the best if your work was 750 pixels wide, but we can always work around that.

So, join us shortly before 8.00 this evening (BST) for Brazil vs Mexico… Live! In MS Paint!

So, that’s just about that, then. Let’s take a moment to thank Terry, Ed, Marcy, Paul, Dan, Tom, Kevin, Sam and Mateus for their contributions. It’s been… well… different. We’ll be back a little later for Russia vs South Korea.

Ian June 17, 20149:53 pm

Peep peep! Full-time, and it’s finished Brazil 0-0 Mexico.

Marcelo loses his head.

Ted June 17, 20149:30 pm

Substitution for Mexico

Ian June 17, 20149:27 pm

Many, many thanks to Mateus Donato from Brasilia, who has sent us this rendering of an understandably unhappy Felipe Scolari! (Whch he claims to have captured live)

Terry June 17, 20149:26 pm

Vazquez sees yellow.

Terry June 17, 20149:16 pm

Another submission, this is from Tom George in Wimbledon… “it’s Dani Alves with his silly new haircut”… thanks Tom…!!

Paul Jones June 17, 20148:51 pm

Half-time analysis with Big Al…

Ted June 17, 20148:49 pm

Anxious scenes in the home crowd

Terry June 17, 20148:47 pm

And at half time the scoreboard says…

Ian June 17, 20148:45 pm

We have another submission! This is from Dan Herd, and he’s drawn David Luiz staying back for a Brazil corner. Thanks, Dan!

Paul Jones June 17, 20148:42 pm

Jonathan Pearce is still horribly confused…

Ian June 17, 20148:41 pm

Neymar’s header again, from another angle. Comfortably the best chance of the first half.

Ted June 17, 20148:39 pm

Terry June 17, 20148:36 pm

That Neymar header in HD.

Ted June 17, 20148:34 pm

Jonathan Pearce

Ian June 17, 20148:27 pm

Action shot! Oscar challenges Vazquez for the ball.

Ted June 17, 20148:26 pm

Here’s that Neymar shot again

Paul Jones June 17, 20148:18 pm

I’ve said it before and I will say it again… 70s style ‘telephone commentary’ should be available on the red button…

Terry June 17, 20148:15 pm

The mystery behind Mexico’s changed strip was finally revealed by an embarrassed kit man.

Ian June 17, 20148:13 pm

Terry, you are going to completely outdo me on this. We have a submission, from Marcia Chicca, who will be supporting Mexico this evening because of the quality of their cuisine. I can’t vouch for how correct this Spanish is.

Don’t forget, you can email your own submissions to

Ted June 17, 20148:12 pm

The Mexican wing back is called Lion

Terry June 17, 20148:09 pm

Outside the stadium the Brazilian public are encapsulating the spirit of this World Cup.

Ian June 17, 20148:04 pm

Good evening, sports fans! Welcome to the stadium here in Castelao (as you can see, this is a photograph) for this evening’s Group A match between Brazil and Mexico.

Terry June 17, 20148:03 pm

Neymar can barely contain his emotions during the anthems
