    Annoyed me how throughout the knockout stages it has always been a closely fought game, but the underdog team has never quite sneaked in a win.

    also, Krul for penalties, a bit of geniush, no? (i may be biased as a newcastle fan, we don't have many internationals!)

    Krul was a good choice for penalties I admit, but I have to say, I like the look of the semi finals and any result they provide because the final and 3rd/4th place game will be just as brilliant as each other.

    i agree, the teams look very good, however, i feel a bit of the shine has been lost, as they are all teams people thought would make it, it would be nice to see belgium or columbia or a couple of other teams sneak through, tbh now, i have lost interest as none of the teams are underdogs, saying that, theres a possibility of an BRA vs ARG or a GER vs NTH final, so i guess im not fussed about who wins the first semi, but that wiull dictate who i'd like to win in the second semi...

    Well we have the following:

    1/3 chance of an All European Final (both countries being neighbours and historical rivals)
    1/3 chance of an All South American Final (both countries being neighbours and historical rivals)
    1/3 chance of a mixed Final

    Even though my picks in the sweepstakes are out, I would LOVE for Germany to win it now.

    I'm supporting the European teams. The fact no European team has won a World Cup in South America adds to it!

    Still backing Brazil as they're my sweepstake.... No Neymar or Thiago Silva against Germany is a worry. It's a shame about Neymar, I think he would have caused the Germans real problems at the back with them playing such a high line, I can't see Hulk or Fred causing them many problems.

    I quite fancy Germany - Holland for the final, stunning win today for Germany (I know Brazil have lost their "stars", but that doesnt detract from Germanys clinical takedown of them), they looked done in at half time.
