Now that’s more like it.
After the debacle that took place between Germany and Brazil, it was nice to see a tightly contested match between Argentina and the Netherlands. In the end, it came down to superior keeper play by Argentina’s Romero.
So now we have an intriguing matchup between two of the titans of World Cup soccer. Messi vs. the machine. This game has all the makings of a classic. At the least, it should be vastly superior to Germany’s last match.
Of note: Germany has won it all three times, Argentina twice. The two teams have met in the final twice before, splitting the two matches. No South American team has ever won a cup final on European soil and no European team has ever won the cup when the tournament took place in South America. Point to Argentina.
