    Nope, still got an eye on it. Belgium vs USA was an absolute belter of a game.

    So glad Belgium won. I feel as though the USA shouldn't even be allowed to qualify because they insisting on calling it "soccer". Pet peeve right there.

    harhar, my better half is half American, so i have to tread carefully :P

    They've also resorted to calling diving, flopping.

    Yeah, I hate the 'soccer' bit too.

    Really good game though, Belgium v USA. If the USA had gone through, it would have caused all manner of navel-gazing over here, I think. After all, they're not supposed to be any good at 'soccer', are they? Certainly not as good as we're supposed to be.

    France v Germany will be good.

    My predictions for the semi's:

    France v Brazil and Netherlands v Messi.....sorry.....Argentina.

    Anyone else?

    I agree that France will beat Germany, France have really surprised me in this tournament so far, them and columbia are probably the only 2 teams that haven't had a bad game yet

    I think you are right, the way Germany defended against Algeria you have got to think that France will be able to exploit that.

    I think Columbia have been very impressive. However, I think France haven't had too much of a challenge so far. The teams they've played have been mediocre at best. They exploited Switzerland's frailties which is what I think made them park the bus against Argentina. Germany certainly showed their potential against Portugal and have faced an inspired Ghana, USA and Algeria side who were happy to go out at it hammer and tong. France certainly won't go for the all guns blazing approach against Germany and I think that might just play in to Germany's hands. Ozil really did have a shocker against Algeria though and I'd consider dropping him against France. I still think they need to play with a striker up front, but the only recognised person they have for that role is Klose and he doesn't look like he can do 90 minutes.
