Germany lack that final killer pass/shot, but if they find it this game is as good as done. Germany comes across as well organized and disciplined in the defense. Amazing passing on the break too

A lot of what's being said by BBC Sport's people seems accurate to me.

Schweinsteiger just raped that defense by himself.
2 quick goals. that seems to be a normality for Germany in this world cup.


edit: magnificent performance by Germany.

Yeah, it's almost like their defence is shaky or something.
That can't be it they only let in 2 goals in 4 games before this.

never has a group of people taken all my dreams, all my hopes, all my happiness and shattered them.. im broken

maradona isn't a coach, low and germany proved that today.

No Central Midfielder, no one to play the best striking force in the world, decent balls. Maxi Rodriguez sucks, Lio was marked best than ever, better than vs inter, better than ever, he still managed to do things, he's the best in the world.

the defense is shaky, you guys whre always right

it took a pounding, from a an organized team, and they(argentina(where disorganized. No midfielder, no midfield, Burdiso? WTF. Samuel is in the bench. The team that should have come out is the one vs nigeria

: All Germanys 4 goals came from argentinas right side, where Zanetti should be!!

Argentine is overrated, im amazed that they reached the quarter finals at all.
Everyone seemed to have forgotten how the qualification to the world cup went..
They should have fired Maradona wile the could.
Sometimes football IS fair :)

Mad respect for your ability to admit you were wrong. If I were in your position I would be arguing the most insignificant points I could find to prove that I was still somehow right.

Cambiasso and Zanetti would never have let this happen. Germany ran the show and Argentina looked disorganized and weak.

Mad credit to Germany for creating chances and capitalizing on them.

So much better without Italy in it :P
:P


Big respect to you Panchester. I didn't know if you would admit you were wrong but you proved me wrong.

Edit: about why Samuel wasn't there: the only thing I can think of was that maybe he had a set back injury wise. It was reported he was ready to go, but he probably wasn't feeling 100%

meh as strong as the germans are, I am still sticking to the Netherlands vs Spain final I called before the WC. That way the best midfielders of the current generation have a chance to face off for not only the WC glory but also a legend status. (Xavi/Iniesta & Sneijder/Robben)
