I saw the match at kanteerava, its not worth it, the screen was too small and placed too far from the stand. @Spitfire - I am not an Argentina supporter, I had just predicted an Argentina win! (If only whatever I predict ever came true :P) I am happy to see the Germans advance, they deserved it for sure. I dont know how Maradona will manage to hide his face after all that attitude and comments he has doled out since Argentina managed to qualify. I think the safest place to hide his face would be up his ***! Thank god we are spared the horror of watching him run naked in Buenos Aires had Argentina won the cup!

I was mighty pleased when Brazil lost to the Dutch. The Dutch defence was all over in the first half, and some reorganizing later, it was good to see them come out tops!

Why do i hate Brazil? Simply coz they were arrogant, overconfident, and yes.. Robinho.

Although my initial predictions were Argentina and Spain, i now bow to Germany. Amazing performance from them!

@ Gilead - you got the number of goals right, you just have got to improve on the allocation.

Paraguay just got robbed. Valdez was on side. The other off side player didn't touch the ball.

I had to switch off my mobile yesterday after Brazil's exit.
It is my turn today, all my friends who support Argentina are missing!! 4-0 what a joke.

@Spitfire - that was a superb post

Didnt you see the two penalty misses/saves by ESP and Paraguay? World cup is still interesting.

Second choice- Argentina
I guess, my second choice is out, so its germany all the way!
They now have to win only 2 matches, one semifinal and one final! Easy peasy!

What a match.
Loved every minute of it.

A little bit of luck on the Spanish side and a 1-0 win for them
But they deserved it.

Not like the walkover gifted to the Germans earlier in the evening.

So my thought about Holland did came true. Well its halfway through though.

Ghana deserved better. Well its a sheer luck when it spans to penalty.

Argentina and Messi deserved it. I hate Messi for playing for himself and not for the team. I wonder why there are so many fans of him. He is useless. I feel sorry for Maradona.

Spain and Paraguay was so so. If Spain plays this way like it did in first half they sure will go down. David Vila dived, one of now so common referee's Blunder of WC '10. Paraguay did deserved extra time.

Kaka, Messi.... was getting irritated with these teams with one or two super players getting projected like Gods

And there were too many Argentinian and Brazilinan fans around, they were talking as if all other teams are far inferior to their teams.

A defeat like this (4-0) is very very shameful. Well done Germans!

Whenever Messi tried to do his 'magic', ball easily ended up in German defenders.

Yes, Argentina, Maradona in particular was humiliated, fans feel devastated.

None can deny Maradona's passion for the game & if he is legend, there is a valid reason. Well, no one can have everything in life.

Like to appreciate the precision of 'German Engineering'
