I agree. It would be much better if it was a Argentina v Brazil final.
But hey, Nigeria have done really well so it will be entertaining final anyway. The question I want to know the most is, how the hell have Belguim got to the semi-finals? They havnt played in any world cups in the last 8 years and havnt played in the last 2 Euro championships.
What good players have Belguim got? Im really shocked at how well there doing.

TWO IN A FLASH! :o

Great work by Messi. I dunno WTF was up with that freekick, but whoa... Still, they put the ball in the net. Aguero has the two of them, btw.

Brazil makes a gutsy double switch. Sobis off for Pato, and Neves on for Hernanes.

Official has cramp. :lol:

Haha yeah I saw that. He needed some of that magic spray for his legs.

Ronaldinho hit a nice free kick off the post and then someone struck it in the net but it was called offside.

That was balls, OMG... It's like the commentator says, Brazil can't buy some good fortune. Yeah, I think Argentina will end up winning this now, and probably take the whole thing, like everyone expected all along.

1... 2... Done.

3-0 Argentina.

Ref is gone fu**ing mad...
