Sorry Sophie. We can't let you win in your arch rivals backyard.
We owe it to the Brazilian people to beat you in the same fashion we beat them.
At least than the wonderful people of Brazil can say they lost against the world champion.

I don't see any German mocking Brazilians fans here, but if they do, they deserve it, don't they? Why not? It was Brazil that beat them in the finals in 2006 and they lost a WC at home too. They have 3 WC titles and have reached the final 8 times. If they don't deserve mock any team in the world by their victories now, who does?
Totally true, look at this fan:

I can't speak for all the Brazilian fans out there, people like that is everywhere. You missed the point. I suppose my definition of "Brazilian soccer fan hater whose national team has accomplished very little or nothing" fits very well with you. So sorry. It must be hard.

No I didn't miss your point. You just have selective memory and pick and choose the facts that are convenient to you. This is a fan celebrating the World champion's defeat. Same concept. And he was not the only one. Brazilian fans were betting against all good teams and being very disrespectful to many nations. Had they won this match they would have not been as graceful as the Germans were. In fact when the score was still 0-0 they were being rude as usual.

Who cares if they won a World Cup before? This is not the same selection and these are not the same players. Brazilians fans just wanted their team to fall through the cracks so they were betting against the best teams.

Well, you probably will park the bus against us.
So will the Netherlands.

It's not going to be an exciting match.

But this German team is on a mission.
We didn't celebrate much yesterday, it's all about the 4th star for us.

But let the better team....Germany win.

As long as you agree ever country's fans did the same thing, I agree with you. And by the way, if I was at a random sporting event where I didn't have allegiances, I would cheer for the underdog, I almost always cheer for the underdog.

As I mentioned before I do think Argentina has a few more tactical options to beat Netherlands today, my guess is that it is going to be close but they will beat Netherlands.

I think German will prevail in the final regardless. They have the best team overall, well-balanced in all sectors of the field. They initiated building this team 5 years ago, so they have strong team chemistry as well. I think this is also the last chance for many of their players, so they will be plenty motivated.

Germany won't beat hard any team in the final as they did Brazil. Sabella and Van Gaal are not stupid to open up for the German game. Felipao, the Brazil coach, made a ridiculous mistake and paid a high price.

I've decided to root for the Argies. Messi deserves a cup more than Robben.

I am torn, id love to see Messi get a cup but I would prefer the Dutch to but I cannot stand Robben that bad that Argentina winning would make me ever so slightly happy. The only logical thing to do is root for Germany :|
