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.
Ah, the "I told you" feeling is awesome, is it not?
They're disciplined as fuck, their goalie frequently goes out of the net to take control of the situation, etc.
Now, we get to watch Germany against Holland in the finals.
...a match for the ages.
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.
