They were very consistent. Several players stood out not just one or 2, they were disciplined and took their chances.

Super Mario indeed. That goal was a cracker. Up there with James Rodriguez's effort.

Second best part of the day was seeing the wives and girlfriends of the Germans boys. Wow.

Super Mario!
Great goal! Congratulations, Team!

Agree it's a tough way to go out, but they already won one against Costa Rica so it's only fair??? wacko.gif
Plus the Dutch were pretty lucky against the Aussies and Chile and extremely lucky against Mexico (thanks to the DIVER Robben) so I think their luck had to run out at some point

So it is Argentina v Germany.
Bad luck for the Dutch. Shoot outs are a tough way to lose and I was hoping they would progress.

In all the time I've been watching soccer, which goes back to George Best & Franz Beckenbauer, I've never seen anything like it.
Sure Brazil were without a couple of key first team players, but the squad is about 24 isn't it?
A lot of their passing was way off the mark and the defence speaks for itself. It's just amazing after the torrent they let loose against Colombia.

Last time around the Germans looked fantastic but imploded v the Spaniards iirc. It can happen.

The Brazilians were without some top players but looked hopeless for much of the game.

Argentina will not defend as poorly as Brazil. They could not be that bad and they have Messi who is the master up front.

I rate the Dutch very highly with class all round. It would be great if they won it actually. Such a small country with such good a team.

There's the old joke -"if you picked that score you obviously know nothing about the game". I've not seen much of the games, news highlights is about all really, so can't say if my pre-tournament pick (Argentina) can match the Germans.

No posts since the last world cup. I'm just watching Germany dismantle Brazil. Germany were my picks (after the Socceroos of course) but hope they have not played their final today. 7-0 with time to run. Extraordinary.
