The game was poor and nervous at times, but it had some beauty at times. This was not a game for attackers but defenders. I suggest downloading the game for every young full- and centre-back out there and follow how good the defence played in both teams. Kuyt and his wide movement troughout the pitch was a joy to watch, and likewise for example the game of Mascherano and Demichelis, or Vlaar and de Vrij. And as the game was so nervous, every half of a chance was thrilling, as they came so seldom, but looked dangerous at times.

And a penalty shootout is never boring, naturally.

Oh Netherlands . . . you've done it again!

So close, but yet so far!

I don't quite want to go that far but I won't lie and say I wouldn't have a chuckle or three either. I'm always so torn on Brazil. They do often play gorgeous soccer but I find their fans a bit much more often than not. I'm still rolling my eyes over the continued angst over Brazil's loss in the 1950 WC.

It would but wouldn't it also guarantee his ouster?

I don't know about that. Brazilians are all about keeping their lead in WC wins. If Germany wins they will get too close with 4 championships and tie with Italy. If Argentina wins they will get to 3 and still be 8 years away from matching with Brazil, if they win every WC for now on, that is.

Don't worry. Silver is a lost medal, bronze is a won medal. It will feel better on Saturday evening.
