Holland is strategically going easy on Brazil I think, but the game is getting more brutal with fouls...

That referee has some strange football rulebook. That should have been either a red card and a free kick
I'm a bit unsure about that rule but Isn't it only a red card if the player commiting the foul is last man? Cesar was still in front of Robben when Silva fouled.
Silva was the last field player and prevented a goal chance with a foul, that is per definition a red card. No clue why he got a yellow for it.

Re: 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil

really?!?! I can't believe the referee gave a yellow to the Brazilian player when clearly he was fouled against. This referee is either blind or was paid to help Netherlands win.

Re: 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil

So. The final result looked like a soccer score. I guess... does that count as an achievement for Brazil at this point?

No. Would have been similar to the Germany game if Netherlands hadn't decided to stop trying after 20 minutes...

Brazil played as good as ENG for large parts of the Cup yet somehow made it to 4th place. Easily worst Brazil team in living memory.

Lot of help from the referees.

I really feel for Brazil spending $11 Billion and building all these stadium and displacing all those people only to get so mixed results.

Re: 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil

Another painful to watch game. Brazil were quite awful again and I'd question why any club would pay 60 euros for the laughable David Luiz, never mind the absurd fee he went for. The refereeing was...err...creative, I suppose - Thiago Silva should have been sent off, Robben decked and Brazil got the free kick, Oscar booked for diving when he didn't... None of it made any difference to the result but it didn't look good.

Lots of soul-searching for Brazil after this. Here's hoping they get it right. Seeing a Brazil side so completely clueless and so bereft of any sort of attacking ideas is unnatural.

Because we had the best defense of Ligue 1 for 2 years and we were starting to be bored by that.
That said, I'm not particularly worried, Paris isn't Brazil.

I expect a boring finale today, I think Argentina will find a way to make it boring.

Okay, seriously... nothing can go wrong now. Germany's got The Hoff.

Most awesome video you'll see today.

Argentina certainly won't be as shambolic as Brazil were - it'll be a closer match, but Germany should do it comfortably.

I'll be gutted if Argentina do win...

Re: 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil

I want Argentina to win for many reasons, but the two most important ones are:

1) They are not Germany
2) It would finally give Messi the legitimacy as the best player of this generation, which he deserves even though I don't like him

It's really mostly just about 1) though if I'm being honest.
