How cruel can sports be at times was well illustrated in Ghana's exit. The ball just did not seem the find the back of the net for the last goal, 3 attempts foiled, the last being a desperate hand ball and then the penalty missed. They were more deserving surely, bad luck.
Without being emotional, lets look clearly at which team has a better balance and record coming into the game (GER VS ARG).
Germans have given 2 very solid performances, blasting away Aus and then against Eng. ARG has played well, but no clear outright champion team performance. They have not had to stretch mentally or physically, like the germans have had to so far.
Overall balanced side- clearly germans with a strong attack, competent midfield and very well equipped defence with Lahm. Youth, experience, energy all together.
ARG is good too, no doubt, but i look at it objectively- germans should go ahead.
BTW for BANGY GUYS: IT was a LOT of fun watching on the big screen at palace grounds- today its at Kanteerva Stadium, its going to be a MOST AMAZING atmosphere for sure.

The best match as of today was Ghana v/s Uruguay... what a finish to a match, just before 15 sec, the hand stops Ghana So nothing stopping Argentina now, and I am really happy that brazil is out , Germany is a good team but will be no match to Argentina today.

Ghana v/s Uruguay was an awesome game. As a neutral I dont know weather to feel happy for Uruguay or feel bad for Ghana.

Suarez though might have got the red card but I think was the hero of the match. If he wouldnt have deliberately stopped the ball going in the goal with his hand it would have meant a Ghana victory.

But he sacrificed himself for his team, and then we all know what events unfolded later.

For todays match between Argentina and Germany, I hope its a rocking match, who ever wins doesnt matter, I like them both.

lol, Argentina was humiliated. I don't like the Germans but like Argentina even less. Only about 36% of those who voted in the poll can now be right.

Thumbs down

Very poor defending from Argentina, Argentinian defense looked like worst of all 32 teams in WC....i think Indian team would have defended better than this
