Record goals, Suarez gnaws, that James Rodriguez strike, passion, drama, colourful fashion - what a World Cup this has been.
It was a tournament that started with a bang as the hosts came from behind to beat Croatia, and has since delivered fantastic entertainment almost game after game.

They are all super hot, but I like Ms. Brommel.

What happens to the balls after the match? Are they collectible, like baseballs..do the teams sign them? What value do they have?
If Argentina wins, does it means they are more, or less likely to invade the Falklands again?
If they win,less likely to invade.
The circus has been provided for the masses.
Germany 2:1 *Whistling*
Soccer? Who gives a crap? I guess some folks like to keep up
with the primitive cultures in the world but I find soccer
and it’s fanatics to be way behind today’s modern culture.
It’s the sport of choice for the no paved roads, no indoor
plumbing, no electricity and total lack of common sense
crowd. I guess its one of those Obama wears no clothes
deals, where people believe that if you don’t worship the
“sport” you are a fool. The only thing I find interesting,
and only in a humorous way, is when those little squirrels
go full drama queen when they fake injuries.
My prediction is Germany 2-1 or 3-1. Argentina had a long hard match on Wednesday and Germany had an easy time of it on Tuesday. Fatigue will be a major factor at about the 60 minute mark.
Another kickball story? Again?
"There are players who are sore, beaten and tired," Argentina coach Alejandro Sabella said after the match. "It is the result of a war."
Good luck to the German national team
Will Holland start a single starting player for tomorrow’s third place game?
I for one would appreciate it - LoL!
Although she does do it very well, it certainly isn't the best I've seen and even if one can acrobatically juggle the ball, it doesn't mean you will be a great footballing success, it does show where the sweet spot is on your foot like where Cahill booted that very memorable volley. That was class.
On youtube once, I saw some guy from Holland who was truly amazing with juggling.
Germany should be confident. Argentina has Messi and .....
Germany is loaded with finishers, great midfielders, a great back line and one of the best goalkeepers in the world.
Germany also did not expend much effort in its semi-final and have an additional day of rest.
My prediction is somewhere between 2-1 and 4-1.
But it may that taki-taka isnt dead, but has just moved north specifically to Germany.
There you have it, a number of news articles point out Germany largely took on the Spanish style of Tiki Taka.
Argentina Germany to go to a shootout. Drawn after 120 minutes.
