I did not see any existing thread for the Argentina v. Netherlands match.
If the top 2 teams come from Europe, we will hear third world countries complain about the unfairness and stuff
Battling for the privilege of getting one’s arse kicked by the Germans, LOL
I hope the Dutch beat up the 1st or 2nd most arrogant country in the world. One can debate whether Brazil or Argentina have a more inflated view of themselves. Brazil the country of tomorrow forever and Argentina from Top 10 economic power in 1900 to economic basket case.
You know the Dutch already know what that feels like both on the pitch and off. Hee hee
When is it scheduled to begin?
I’m pulling for the Dutch.
22’ in and no score. At this point yesterday, the game was already out of Brazil’s grasp.
Argentina playing strong...
Having lived in Argentina for three years, my sympathies lie with the Argies in this case. If Holland prevails, we’ll be looking at a rematch of the 1974 World Cup Final in Munich when West Germany beat Holland.
Holland is a good team — and they should win their first World Cup if they advance to the Final...
Argentina won 4-2 in penalty kicks after a scoreless 90 minutes and 30 minutes of extra time.
Argentina will now face Germany in the World Cup final on Sunday.
The Netherlands now plays Brazil in the runner up consolation game on Saturday.
Hope Germany destroys the Argies.
