After 15 minutes everybody knew that this would end up in a penalty shootout. I expected van Gaal to play the "Krul card" again, and after watching Cillessen in the penalties I knew why he played it against Costa Rica. He won't be a penalty killer in his carreer.

Now I'm ready for Sunday, Rio's calling. Argentina will be tough, great defense but limited on offense. Messi is the best player on earth, but if you get him out of the game, noone really scares me. Di Maria out, Higuain needs Messi and Agüero a couple of games after the injury. Another Plus: The goalkeeper Romero didn't play much all of last season.

If Germany goes on top early (like in the France and Brazil game), the 4th star is the limit, but if Argentina scores first it might end up in a mess.

Well today is the day and I gotta go with Germany. Between the last game and how they've played this tournament it looks like it's theirs to lose. I just haven't seen enough out of Argentina that says they can completely take over the game and shut down the Germans on offense if need be. Since the round of 16 started, they've just seemed a little too content to hang back and play not to lose at times and I don't think that will cut it today.

Yes, I stay with it. Without Mustafi injured I'm not sure that he would have switched Lahm back to right defender. And obviously that was the missing piece to be a great team instead of an average-to-good one. That said, I really hope we win it all and he leaves by himself Applause

1,5h to go, I'm getting really nervous. Time for beer Big Grin Now go out and get this freaking 4th star!!!!!!

Pulling for Germany. You gave the world bratwurst, great beer and my mom's side of the family. For that, I am eternally grateful.

First and foremost, congratulations Gilbert. One heck of a game.

That said, this was one heartbreaking tournament.

Just to put it in NFL terms.

You're the Packers. Or more like the Vikings. Been to three finals, never won one. You get to the NFCCG and get knocked out by the Broncos. Since, you know, we lost a SB against them. The Chicago Bears go on to win the Super Bowl.

Doesn't translate that well with NFC/AFC, but you get the point.

Again, though, congratulations, Gilbert. That is one impressive team. And it's very likely that it'll stay that way for quite a while. I know it's early, but I can imagine you're the favorites again in Russia.

Many of us understand your analogy Rocky. I would have loved to watch the little Dutch boys go toe to toe with The Machine. It would have been epic.

Unlike the Vikings, I do hope one day to see your lot win one as well... as long as it's not at the expense of the US.

Congrats to Gilbert and Germany! What a game. What a world cup. For all the controversy going in, Brazil hosted a great tournament.
