    I'm predicting Brazil Argentina, but if that doesn't happen then I wanna see Holland vs Germany. That'll be a mad final.

    Argentina beating Brazil on home soil would cause a riot real talk.

    Also, liking the world cup now. All the joke teams are out finally and we actually have good footballing sides in the semi finals. It's picked up.
    You mean gutsy over-achieving underdogs, as opposed to ref-favoured Brazil, one-man team Argentina, easy route to the semis Holland and efficient but dull Germany.

    The tournament started going downhill when the likes of Chile, Colombia and France went home.

    Yeah want to see Holland keep going, but seeing Argentinian's cry as they lose in the final to a 93rd minute David Luiz 40 yard screamer with a massive deflection off Messi, would just be too much.

    Such good semi finals both cracking games anyone can go to the final

    I think it will be a Germany VS Holland final (Silva and Neymar out helps Germany out so much) (Gaal is a manager who knows how to win any game even the most difficult game he is the type of person to find a winning result)

    But I would love Brazil VS Argentina so would many others..

    I wouldn't call Chile, Colombia or Costa Rica "joke teams" they played much better than Spain, Italy, England and others

    Chile were unlucky against Brazil, Colombia were close vs Brazil as well the tactics was basically attack James Rodriguez and Costa Rica have been enjoyable to watch.


    Surely if Chile were a joke team Brazil should have beaten them in 90mins, Colombia were defo the most exciting team to watch for a neutral and even a big team like Germany struggled against Algeria just goes to show we can't call these teams a joke

    On the other hand, if Argentina scored a fluke 94th minute winner against Brazil there would seriously be a riot I think.

    I want;

    Brazil vs Argentina

    or

    Holland vs Germany

    Out of the four, I'd like to see Holland win because of RVP/LVG. I think it would make RVN and VDS happy too, so that would also make me happy.

    Are you joking? That's what has made this world cup so good. Underdogs with a lot of passion have been smashing it and playing far better football than most of the big teams. Or are you one of those that just bums teams with big names like Spain, Brazil etc.?

    The joke teams of this tourney so far have been: Spain, England, Brazil, Portugal, Italy, Belgium and Argentina.

    Not one of them has put in a convincing display and lived up to their expectations/potential

    Not even.

    I just think that most of the top teams have played **** this tournament, the underdogs have done well tbf, but it's not great football I'm witnessing, or moments of brilliance. I'd carry on watching Chelsea matches(who I support) if I wanted to watch a team just run around for 90mins, stay solid in defence and get one goal to defend.

    Like I've said many times, the top international teams are generally terrible in comparison to the teams that their club play for. There are exceptions. This leads to crap football from the bigger international teams, which I'm disappointed about. Italy haven't even been a joke team. They got cheated by the ref. Belgium won every game in their group, Argentina are in the semis despite every team parking the bus against them. Brazil have been poor the whole tournament though and Spain obviously were terrible as were England and Portugal.

    Btw, Colombia have been the most interesting team to watch, I like them a lot. Belgium are boring to watch, but tbh their team isn't as great as people make it out to be. That team wouldn't even get top 6 in the prem and they've been shoehorning the big name players(although Lukaku got dropped) to fit a system.

    There isn't too much difference in strength to the teams personally, the defences are both terrible so they use 5atb. the midfields are pretty unbalanced with players playing out of position and the forward lines are both world class.

    You'd say Argentina are slightly better though. I'm torn between wanting to see Messi win the world cup and cementing his status as the best player of all time and watching a Holland Germany final.
