So what are your Final predictions? i dont think the dutch will do it against Messi, in the other side we have Brazil versus Germany

haha it's Messi vs the whole Dutch National team.

Messi is a good player but he can't win it from a powerhouse like the Netherlands on his own.

The Netherlands will either win or get close second place, but i think this will be the first win of the Netherlands, and they deserve it too.

Germany will be second place. Argentina probably 3rd.

I'm going to make a bold prediction
IF Costa Rica defeats the Netherlands in penalty kicks we will see a Latin American Team take the world cup home
This is GIANT KILLING

Holy shit, the game was so close it seems rigged!

4-3 in the penatly shootout, Netherlands still win, as predicted. Smiley   Game was a lot closer than I had predicted, I imagine Netherlands would at least score 2 goals before 90 minutes.

I don't think having 10 defenders is worthy of respect, they intentionally tried to stall the game and win by penalties.

Stalling the game is pretty easy compared to actually playing to win, and CR did absolutely not play to win.

To claim that they played on equal grounds with the Netherlands would be exaggeration, the Dutch were dominating the entire match.

I guess that is true but when your facing a powerhouse your strategy doesn't change
Costa Rica always played a defensive type haven't really seen them offensive although I was expecting a Netherlands win in the end just wasn't expecting it to go to penalties.

Either way for Costa Rica, its World Cup has already been a triumph a new high score Smiley . Pura vida.
I agree here. Costa Rica's strategy did not change from other matches. Their playstyle is based mostly on being defensive and when the chance is found, try to quickly stab through their defenses with a few players and score. It didn't really look this way for most of the match because they simply had no good control of the ball until the very last 5 minutes in the second overtime half, where they noticeable did attack. Respect for the team.

On a side note, it amazes me how fast and resistant Robben is. It's like his blood is full of red bull.

Yeah, i put netherlands -1 but only small amount,because i had the feeling of a close match or even a costa rica win all the week.

Robben its a true warrior, in the game vs Mexico, not counting his dive, he made an amazing job, in fact that victory was because of him, got the ball from midfield to corner zone like 8 times in 10 minutes.

The Costa Rica goalie looked a bit off-edge on the penalty shootout.

He was moving in a little too close when shot IMO.

I agree though, the game was extremely close.

Netherlands was superior to Costa Rica whole match. Netherland's goalkeeper had almost no work, while Costa Rica's one was maybe the top player of the match.  This game going to penalty was some central american black magick, no other explanation.

Waiting for the Brazil vs Germany game

South America versus Europe. And two epic rivals of each continent at the same time -> Brazil and Argentina / Germany and Netherlands. I still think Netherlands is going to take it all, and Germany for 2nd place.

I was giving them the chance because to be the Netherlands are the group who I think will win the World Cup so if they got taken out by the Defensive power of Costa Rica, which despite it got shot at and shot at and shot and shot at some more and didn't give up a damn goal for 120 minutes XD.
They would probably have had an easier time on the next opponents lol.

Anyways since Netherlands did win looking forward to the next games going hmm
Argentina since Neymar is still down and Netherlands

Favorite part of that article
“Filho de $%#$%,” said taxi cab driver Mauricio Lourenco talking about it.

But hmm interesting history lesson can they do a repeat?
In 1962 Brazil was deprived of Pele’s genius also through injury but won the title. It is time to repeat the feat.”

For now, Argentina looks like the favorites to win the world cup. So far they have conceded only 3 goals (1 against Bosnia, and 2 against Nigeria). All of their players are fit, and in fine form. Brazil will struggle after the omission of Neymar.

I don't know about Argentina winning the world cup. I'm hoping Germany will be able to succeed in their match with Brazil (it will be devastating if they do not).

Like said though, Germany has been playing against many more complex and difficult teams than Argentina. If Germany can beat France, they should be able to beat Argentina, which is the primary reason why I am thinking Germany may have it this year.

What the fuck are you talking about?

First of all every foul looks harmless in slowmotion. Secondly as long as they don't claim to have been fouled afterwards (which they rarely do especially compared to EVERY other nation in this year's cup) it is just normal to take a dive instead of an injury if you might get hit.

Germany is the fairest team of the cup so far, the numbers are painting a pretty clear picture here.

What makes me upset is that so many players are openly demanding yellow and red cards for the opponent sometimes for fouls that never even happened, when they know full well there was no foul. And normally the rules are pretty clear that this is punishable behaviour in it self. I wish we'd still have Colina (that bald Italian ref), he always used to put an end to such drama by kindly handing the yellow card to the player that demanded it for his opponent.

I don't think that the Netherlands will lose against Argentina. Van Ghaal will do his magic again and we will get a rematch of the '74 finals with the same ending (Germany winning the world cup).

To say that Germany was diving too much would be an extreme over-statement when compared to France, who IMO had more fouls than the Germans in that match. You can tell this by the amount of yellow cards the Germans got amounting to way higher than usual ( As mentioned above, others saw bias as well ).

France should have had 2 penalty shots on them as said before. It's regardless, though, because Germany won.

Within relevancy, the only time I had ever seen a German in this cup complain about a player not getting a yellow card would be with Schweinsteiger (in the USA match... It might have been Ghana); which IMO was completely fair because he was being target number 1.

If the player is being constantly attacked or being called a target, I understand frustrations. If a player is getting their first time being fouled against, then they should walk away and ignore the situation.

Germany played well but think Brazil will win against them even without Neymar : they are at home, rested, it is their climat and they will perform a good team work to go in finals

Betting on Argentina to win against the Netherlands and we will have a all South American final Grin Grin
