- Kompany is IN. Vermaelen is OUT.
- Origi for Lukaku as striker. That's probably a smart decision for Belgium

Brazil probably have a claim that it shouldn't have been a PK. Silva should have been sent off for that though.
All things considered, they should be happy they at least have 11 men on the field.

Messi needs support play. Barca provides it to him. Argentina does not. Has always been the problem with his national play. Argentina just isn't very good. Would be a different game if di Maria could go but no dice.

Most crucial player for Netherlands in my opinion. He's the guy the can shut Messi down. Shut Messi down and the Dutch win.

Nigel "THE MESSI KILLER" de Jong wins it for Netherlands

And easy to say after seeing the game but Silva's absence hurt much more.

Both Hummels and Klose subbed already.

It's all about perception. I think most people see the World Cup as the World Cup. The 32 teams in one country that everyone watches.
The more hardcore fans may be the ones referring to it as the Finals since this run of the World Cup technically started in 2011 with qualifying. It is the World Cup Finals but terminology depends mostly on how people view qualifying in my opinion.

Way too easy. If Germany don't fall back they could get a few more easily.
|5 days 5 hours ago||Lineups||
Brazil: Julio Cesar, David Luiz (c), Fernandinho, Marcelo, Hulk, Fred, Oscar, Dante, Luiz Gustavo, Bernard, Maicon
Germany: Neuer, Hoewedes, Hummels, Khedira, Schweinsteiger, Ozil, Klose, Muller, Lahm (c), Kroos, Boateng

Yes. The second yellow would draw a red card and an automatic 1-game suspension.

I think there's a definite limit to home field advantage. Germany in the WC semis without your 2 best players is too much to overcome I think.

This game was a tossup if everyone was healthy.
Germany losing today would be an upset.

Neymar officially out of the rest of the World Cup. Broken vertebra apparently.

That was the soccer equivalent of getting posterized. Hummels just manhandled Varane.

My guess is he's sick. Howedes going out makes more sense.
|1 week 2 days ago||Lineups||
France: Lloris (c), Debuchy, Evra, Varane, Sakho, Cabaye, Valbuena, Benzema, Griezmann, Matuidi, Pogba
Germany: Neuer, Howedes, Hummels, Khedira, Schweinsteiger, Ozil, Klose, Muller, Lahm (c), Kroos, Boateng
Klose getting a start and Lahm presumably at right back again. This is all good news for Germany IMO.

My wife's German but as an England fan I just can't do it. Asteroid sounds good to me.
I have France and Colombia winning but not confident in either.

See what Lukaku is doing against an exhausted team? That's why you keep subs for late in games like this.

Never since they went to 32 teams (1998).

Worrying about guys on prior yellow cards is overrated at this point (unless it's a guy like Neymar).
Having players worried about cards and possibly not making plays as a result is a great way to ensure there won't be another game.
