Argentina and Germany. That is going to be one hell of a game.

I'm still exhausted from yesterdays matches. The Netherlands beating Brazil was amazing enough, but the Ghana/Uruguay match...I was physically tired from watching that.

That said, I'm going with Germany and Spain.

Argentina 1 Germany 3
Paraguay 0 Spain 3

And it's not Messi.

I was already tired from the awesome Andy Murray/Rafael Nadal Wimbledon match. When the Ghanaian player missed the penalty shot after the handball, I had nothing left in me.

/Germany!

No Brazil=no caring.

Well, I don't want Maradona to win, so I guess there is SOME caring.

My fiancee bet me that a Spanish or Portuguese speaking country would win the Cup--that was five of eight yesterday. Now that Brazil's out, it's Argentina, Germany, or the Netherlands in my opinion.

This. I would be embarrassed if Spain lost to Paraguay.

Argentina's downfall will be their back 4. They will not contain the German counterattack.
 
2010-07-03 09:26:57 AM  
Germany and Spain of course.

I need something stronger than coffee for the game but ah well, I'll live vicariously off those stumbling out the bar next door.

Germany and Spain of course.

What has me a bit worried is, that, if Germany manages to advance, it might have not much of a team in the semi since most key players already got yellows and will miss the semi if they get one against Argentina.
And somehow I don't see them stop Messi or Tevez without the odd yellow-worthy foul. :-/

So that'll just make them rollover for Spain you are saying?

For what it's worth:

Argentina 3 - 2 Germany
Spain 3 - 0 Larissa Riquelme Paraguay

If you had money on an Argentina vs Paraguay semifinal match, leave this room.

This match is for the connoisseurs. Germany will have to defend with their lives to stop this Argentinian attack. I'm glad to see Maradona go for 4-3-3 formation. Intent is clear from both sides. Maradona will go all attack and Germany will soak it up go for the break. It will be 90 mins of pure magic.
 
2010-07-03 09:47:32 AM  
I'm going for the 2 European teams today. Don't cry for me Argentina.

Part of me is wishing for a Paraguay versus Uruguay final, just so I can hear the announcers stumble over their words like a sailor on shore leave who coulda swore he was still sober enough to do the Lindy Hop.

Go Argentina! Woo!

Do you think that yellow cards should reset after each match, or should they remain cumulative?

tudorgurl: Do you think that yellow cards should reset after each match, or should they remain cumulative?



absolutely cumulative.

that said, as sketch as teh referreeing has been this tourney, one could easily argue they should be wiped clean afer eatch match. well certainly reviewed after every match.
 
2010-07-03 10:02:12 AM  
Should have been a yellow there.....
 
2010-07-03 10:02:24 AM

Probably cumulative, but if they reset them that late in the tournament, they sholdn't hand them out like candy in the group stage.
