What about head-to-head?
Argentina have won 7, lost 9, and 4 draws against Germany since 1958. But let's only focus on the more recent matches

2002 GER 0-1 ARG
2005 GET 2-2 ARG
2005 GER 2-2 ARG (Confeds Cup)
2006 GER 1 -1 (4-2 pen) ARG (World Cup Q.F) Press are going to talk about a "fight" here, it was heated, but far from a fight. And only like 3 players are still on the team to remember it... just drama llama stuff.
2010 GER 0-1 ARG
2010 GER 4-0 ARG (World Cup Q.F)
2012 GER 1-3


Germany has been playing great the past two matches, especially with the fantastic win over Brazil, but don't take Argentina out just yet. They've always been a tough team for Germany, and Messi is still Messi. However, he hasn't been that reliable in this Cup, and his team has been looking like they've just been relying on him. I'd hate to see a repeat of 2010 where a team like Spain just snuck through the whole tournament to win it on a bunch of 1 goal matches. Germany have to be cautious, have to stay focused, press hard like they have been, but not at the sake of losing their defense like they did against Ghana and Algeria.

I do believe Germany has been the better team, and if they play like they have been and are capable of, they will have a win here. If they show up like they did against Ghana or Algeria, it's going to be a long day in Germany. We'll have to see if Messi wakes up a bit, and I'm sure he will as he wants this trophy badly. Only South American teams have won when the Cup has been held in the Americas, Germany wants to be the first team to break that pattern.

FIFA just announced that there will be 10 more weeks of games because they saw how much fun everyone was having on Fark :D

I'm actually seeing some Brits cheering for Germany because of the whole Falklands thing. Wow :P there's a team they can hate even more than Germany.

This has been fun. Yesterday, I lurked and had the 3rd place game as background (yard work, repairs). MrsOLG is actually excited about watching the game, even though the US is long gone.

This one goes to Germany, 4-2.

I wish. This tournament has been anything but a nightmare. Now it just has to end with the Germans giving another GOTCHA to the cheatingbastichArgies and it will have a satisfying ending.

That rivalry made more sense when Germany and England were in the same class. Same with Argentina and England. England needs to learn to hate the US and Greece and Poland if they want their rivalries to be fun in the future.

Brasil should be rooting for Germany to win after they failed to even grab a third-place seating.  If you've been beaten, it's a small consolation to know that no one else could beat that team either.

So war est, und so ist es, und so wird es immer sein.

Yep, thanks :P

I write these up either really late at night when still kinda buzzed, or really early in the morning when I'm usually not fully awake :P Either way, I've wished many a time that I could edit Fark posts easily....

The Closing Ceremonies have started!

...they're about as bad as the Opening Ceremonies, but hey, Shakira's there.

Wyclef & Santana now.

Santa looks more uncomfortable than usual.
 
2014-07-13 01:31:36 PM  
Didn't Shakira & Wyclef perform together in the 2010 World Cup closing too?

The husband needs to start making brats and sauerkraut, I'm hungry.

Also, Germany needs to kick the shiat out of Argentina.

Then, football season needs to start.

Is that coverage starting at 3 or kickoff at 3?
 
2014-07-13 02:03:45 PM  
Will the Germans play like Beckenbauer, Matthäus, Müller (take your pick), Klinsmann, Lahm or Rummenigge?

or will they play like Kuntz?
 
2014-07-13 02:04:10 PM  
Kickoff. Coverage is on now.

I suggest that every time they show Jogi Low knuckle-deep in his nose, that we pound our drinks.

Still...the two teams that played Germany the closest were Ghana and the United States.

Time for my daily declaration:  I have to watch the game on Univision because we don't get ABC in HD.  And I am being deceived (or am I?) that the game is also on ESPN2, but so far, it's just Sportscenter.
