    Got to think that Argentina are the favourites here but still tricky to call.
    Both teams have looked like they can make the final easily in some games but looked weak in others.

    marty21 One on one? You're crazy.

    The Dutch didn't look good against Costa Rica - Argentina should edge it

    Penalties again. How will VaG play it this time?

    Silva This went well.

    I'm not sure how well will Argentina play without di Maria.

    Badgers Mr Big Shrimp!

    RVP looking dodgy for the Dutch due to a stomach problem but De Jong is back training
    Di Maria missing but Aguero back for the Argentines

    Argentina's first semi final since 1990. Startling fact right there. Winning the Cup in their greatest rivals' back yard is a huge motivator, the sort Argentinian sides thrive on - I think they'll win 1-0

    Looking forward to this, hopefully it will be an exciting match.

    3-2 to the Dutch.

    Argies score first, 1-0.
    Holland make it 2-1 in the last 20 minutes of the first half.
    Second half, Holland seal it with another before Argentina score a second in the last 10 minutes, batter the Dutch until the final whistle but can't find the equaliser.

    Is it inevitable that it'll be an anticlimax after last night? Or might it be 14 all after extra time before Messi leads a 22 man brawl?

    If anything, I found last nights game to be an anti climax

    I think Argentina will have this, but it'll be an ugly fucker of a game.

    it'll be tight but I think Argentina not having Di Maria could edge it for the Dutch.

    2-2 FT 3-2 AET
    Aguero 20
    Messi 81

    Sneijder 15
    Robben 60, 117 (Pen)

    Hopefully we'll have as good a ref as yesterday, so Robben and Martens Indi will both be sent off, and Argentina will romp home 4-1.

    I'm calling the final as a 2:1 win to holland. So I hope they win tonight :)

    Another eight goals would be ace.

    The Dutch are going feel emboldened after Germany's result and secure an early lead but the Argentina will eventually wing it, not without controversy.

    2-1 Argentina. A flaming meteorite to hit the Dutch bench in the 74th minute, killing Tim Krul.
