It's fucking horrific. Best bit was Mascherano looking punch drunk for a bit

Seemed to work for him though. He had a stormer of a game. Probably shouldn't have been on the pitch though. It's crazy how players with concussion are allowed to just shake it off and go back on. It'll lead to a horrific incident sooner or later.

Utterly dreadful match. My god. :lol:

Did Holland even have a single shot on target? Rather disappointed.

A passionless Holland deserved to go out. It is as if both sides saw the German match the day before and played defensive to avoid a Brazil type humiliation

It was so boring I fell asleep by the 25 minute

It wasn't the best and at times I was screaming at Holland to get forward, especially Kyutt on the wing. He would constantly go backwards and they had little to no width. Argentina were not much better and from the second half onwards offered pretty much nothing going forward. I fell that Holland should have won it at the end of normal time when Robben was clean through, but he delayed his shot too long and Mascherano got back.

Argentina really have to raise their game if they want to beat Germany, nut I'm not sure there really is anything else to come from them. I think it could be a pretty one sided final.

Add in the lack of extra-time in their own game (lack of a competitive second half, in fact) and an extra day's rest on top, and I can't really look beyond Germany in the final at this point.

Zabaleta's injury went through me. A proper OOOF moment.

Ugh, Brazil won't be returning to attractive football any time soon, just reappointed Dunga as boss.

Great step forward there by Brazil. Oh sorry I meant step backwards.
