Both!

Within two years of each other, the Olympics are in 2016.

I'm looking forward to Spain-Paraguay!

This is what I like about Germany. Even when they are 3-0 ahead, they are still going for a fourth and a fifth.

I'm hoping Spain will win tonight. Spain - Germany should be a great match and both Holland - Spain or Holland - Germany should be great finals.

And Maradona said Germany didn't know how to play football.

Germany is a machine. Everyone does their work, they make no mistakes, and they score every chance they have.
Simply, a perfect match.

I always said Argentina was only Messi, Tevez and Higuaín. Today, they proved my point.

Congrats Germany.

Yeah, this is my favourite part of watching Germany play too. The tournament started with everyone complaining and teams playing far too defensively, and Germany made an impression by just stacking goals upon goals. That's why I'm also happy with the lot of them being comparatively young with regards to other world-class squads, so it might carry over into the next tournaments.

But who knows, the South American teams may be hitting it back in particular.

I'm hoping for a Germany-Netherlands final, but Spain-Netherlands would be good too. Both need a cup :)

I loved it how people thought that Argentina had a chance to win and I knew that they were to be destroyed like the English. Never underestimate the Mannschaft.

Goddamnit Argentina. I told you, didn't I?

I TOLD you. Change the way you play according to your adversary. Study a crapload of tapes and old Germany games.

They're disciplined as fuck, their goalie frequently goes out of the net to take control of the situation, etc.

But noooooooooooooooo.

Now, we get to watch Germany against Holland in the finals.

...

...a match for the ages.

Ha oh god that was bad. What a really poor defensive game by Argentina.. I'm disappointed they didn't get at least one goal though. With such a strong offensive showing in the first few games of the tournament I think they deserved at least one goal. It just shows that Argentina was not really prepared for such a strong opposition. They didn't have a strong competition at all in their group stages and it really hurt them. Their weak back line was never tested and it bit them in the ass. Although props to the Germans, there's no doubt in my mind about a Netherlands-Germany final. Should be a good one.

Beautiful German victory earlier today. And now, for a Paraguayan surprise (hopefully).

I just don't want to see Spain winning it now, not the over-hyped team...

Strangest thing is, I predicted accurately both Brazil vs Holland and Argentina vs Germany (yes, I said it would end 4-0 right before it started)..
I was amazed that Argentina didn't fight back at all, they were just "passively attacking"..Germany's defence simply drowned all of their attempts, they showed the discipline someone would expect from them...I think they have the most complete team of the remaining nations, they basically don't have a weakness that someone can exploit..
Both Brazil and Argentina are out?Boy, I couldn't be happier (well, I would be if Ghana won, but you get the point).

Oh, and about the match going on right now, Paraguay is apparently in a fighting mood..good, it will probably be an interesting match.

I do agree that Spain's style of play is dull, and overall that they've been pretty disappointing at moments with notable moments of silly - earlier post is sorta looking at history wise, but yeah. I'd like to see a Paraguay upset victory tonight too. I think they can exploit these issues with Spain maybe. But we'll see...

Germany can handle whatever happens for the semis though, I think.

I may just be a little bitter that I bet on Higuain for the golden boot and Brazil to win it

also Spain are boring as fuck to watch I give no fuck what pundits say

sorta off/on topic question, since when did more of the world become intrested in fifa? or were they always intrested?

Because im sure the people who cared the most were the south americans (brazil, argentina), Europeans (germans, england, spain). There were the odd north american's, african and asian nations that cared but those two cared most I thought.

Now it seems the hole world is really interested in Fifa like it was the Olympics. or has this always been so and im just talking about the countries that usually win or get near the end and not the countries that lose at the first set.

Actually, most of the countries in the world are interested in football, bar the US and maybe New Zealand.

Yawn.
I can't say that was an exciting first half, both teams made mistakes beyond count, especially wrong passes...
Spain looks pretty weak, and I didn't expect Paraguay to be so combative..although they didn't score, they had the most chances (and a questionably cancelled goal).
I sincerely hope both teams try to contentrate more and manage to score..

Now it seems the hole world is really interested in Fifa like it was the Olympics. or has this always been so and im just talking about the countries that usually win or get near the end and not the countries that lose at the first set.

For Africa, it could be a relief thing for many fans, like it was at moments with certain Eastern Bloc teams during the Cold War. African support is usually intensely enthusiastic, and this tournament has pretty much shown that. Hey, the motivation to get an African World Cup was due to the immense impact of African players in recent football history, among other things. In short, the case many've been at one time that African teams were jokes. Now everyone knows that many nations are much better than that.

For Asia, the 2002 World Cup probably helped, but teams like South Korea and Japan have genuine, appreciatable talent too. Football is also marketed a lot in China. A Chinese housemate I had was telling me how the guys in China drool over highly-marketed teams like Manchester United. A colleague of my Dad's, who was on a business trip there recently, said that loads and loads of people were watching the games, despite China not being in the tournament.

But essentially, it's quite easy to set up and stick to one thing support-wise. It's picked up easily by fans, wheras the Olympics are mix and match, but yeah.

0-0 at half-time. Paraguay had an offside goal! Ugh, that one offside rule confuses me to no end. Spain are surprised I think. Thanks for setting the idea up for me Lee Dixon.

But hey,he actually said that, he said that he couldn't give apress conference with a player besides him...what a moron.

Also, was that Paraguay goal really an offside? I think it was but the commentaries on tv made me doubt about it.

I don't think Valdez was offside, but some other Paraguayan who may or may not have touched the ball was apparently offside. I'd need to see it again.

About that offside... Apparently you don't need to actually touch the ball to be offside, but if you participate in some manner, you're offside as well.

The other player from Paraguay was offside. He did not touch the ball, but he jumped to try to get, dragging the Spanish defence with him. Thus, he participated, and the offside was called. The guy who scored wasn't, though.

Meh, I think it's not fair to call offsides like that. IMO, offsides should be called only if you physically participate, touching the ball...

Of well, second half is on now. Hopefully Paraguay will keep the pressure and null Iniesta.
