After World Cup 1998 ane specially Euro 2000 absolutely hate France so I hope Germany crushes them
The Netherland will win easily
I'm rooting for Belgium against Argentina
a) Well, the ref definitely spoiled that game. Brazil played cynically, the ref allowed it, Colombia retaliated, and Neymar's out. If Brazil loses the World Cup, they can blame how they played this match as the reason. James Rodriguez is still a star, and I cannot wait to see where he hads.
b) Germany didn't crush France, but it was a clear victory. France really never got into the game.
c) The football gods didn't even want The Netherlands to win. But in the end, Tim Krull did the job for the whole team. In fairness, Netherlands clearly were the better team - 12 goal attempts on target (vs 1 for Costa Rica) and just utterly dominated possession. But Navas was still epic (goal keeper of the tournament with Howard and Neuer) and the second half of extra time was off the hook.
d) Argentina also deserved to win. Belgium will be great in a few years, but they seemed nervy.
