    Have just googled Dulce de Leche. Sorry, not a good enough reason to make me support them. I can't tango either

    Do you like soya beans?

    Can't drink red

    I'm leaving WWII and The Falklands/Malvinas out of it. :D

    hm, that's a good reason NOT to support them

    and soya beans aren't really something I eat. Corned beef is also a no-no

    However, Argentina is a country I'd love to visit, looks like some beautiful scenery, but then Germany's got that as well

    Whose players dive the most? :hmm:

    Argentinian barbecue -asado - is fairly bloody amazing, if not veggie friendly.

    It looked as if on the first penalty he approached the Argie player and said something to him, perhaps as an attempt to unsettle him, but on subsequent pens the ref put a stop to it?

    marty21 One on one? You're crazy.

    not sure how bad that match was as I fell asleep after 20 mins and woke up at the end of extra time:D

    and the flag is prettier than Germany's although it is a rather dull blue :(

    Controversial obv, but I enjoyed that. This isn't the circus, it's a World Cup semi and you don't fuck up. Brazil's collapse last night was grimly hilarious but this was two teams who weren't about to ruin their lives through desperate incompetence.

    Not a great game but everyone involved showed up. Nice one Argentina :)

    Was tired so decided to skip this one and get some sleep. Sounds like I did not miss much :(

    I've actually managed to time my flight perfectly to miss the fucking final. I'll be somewhere over the ocean as the winning penalty slams in. Fucksticks.

    I think both teams forgot it was knockout....and a draw would see them both go through.

    I enjoyed seeing two teams defending properly, not whatever the hosts thought they were doing.

    Van Gaal is saying two Dutch players refused to take the first penalty. Last game notwithstanding, Holland's shoot out record is worse than England's and I doubt they enjoy the prospect of them.
    So, is Alex Sabella the first Bramall Lane cult hero to coach a team to the final?
    A third Germany - Argentina final. One all so far...

    An Argie victory would probably be the straw that broke the camels back. I predict a riot in rio.
  28. Thaw

    Thaw Aye like, so it is.

    The only good thing about that game was that the kits went back to normal shorts and socks colours. Argentina ditched the white shorts and socks for black and Holland brought back white shorts. That was the most interesting thing that happened. Same happened with Brazil actually - I think that was the first time they had blue shorts. Germany stuck with white though. Boo!

    This. I thought both Mascherano and Vlaar were as good as any individual German performance from the previous night's Semi Final. I liked the contrast between this semi final and Germany's mauling of Brazil.
