Germany seem to be slightly controlling play at the moment.. Argentina have been good on the break though

They are controlling as long as they don't get closer than 75% of the field. And if they are crossing the line, Argentinians are showing who's the real Master of the field. Vamos Argentina, el partido muy bueno!

Yea that was no penalty either way. But good lord that was a brutal looking collision when they show it at full speed.

Germany is the better team with much better players than the Netherlands, period. I'm just so sick of that anti-german sentiment in the things you write. It's so typical for a small, petty nation like the Netherlands.
You still didn't answer my question... "Can you name the MULTIPLE players of Cruyff's quality that played for Germany, Argentina and Italy in the last century"?

How many German players had success in top national leagues (Premier League/La Liga/Serie A) outside Germany?
Wilkes, Cruyff, Koeman, Rijkaard, Gullit, Van Basten, Bergkamp, Davids, Stam, Seedorf, Overmars, Kluivert, Hasselbaink, Makaay, Van der Sar, Van Nistelrooy, Van Bommel, Kuyt, Van der Vaart, Robben, Sneijder, Van Persie, Huntelaar, Nigel de Jong, Strootman etc. etc. proved they can play at a high level in foreign countries, how many Germans did this?

Apparently Neymar is rooting for Argentina as well.

Game going as I expected, 0-0 after 90 minutes. I hope there will be a goal scored in ET as I don't want a final to be decided by penalties.
