I've seen Messi's middle finger wiggling at he back of Sabella's throat (each time he opened his mouth) - too many times for this to be believable !

Argentina have had the easiest run of any country to a world cup final since Brazil in 2002. In fact both finalists that year had a very easy run in a tournament of upsets. They have hardly proved themselves contenders even with a star studded line up. I think everyone's hoping they turn up for this one match and not play their stop start game displayed so far. Germany to win 3-1.

Argentina will win it.. Messi just needs 5 secs of space to win the match...semis was a cagey affair bcos both the teams were still scarred seeing what happened to Brazil and so didnt attack much..

Unbelievable - Sabella did nothing, and he almost lost to a far inferior team. His star player, Messi, was self absorbed and completely ineffectual - with a pass completion rate around 50%, and a load of stupid dribbles straight at 3 odd packed Dutch defenders in the middle of the pitch when there were far better options. Sabella's subs were massively uninspiring, and there was no Plan B. The Dutch meanwhile got stronger and stronger (in a turgid game), and if Van Gaal had actually picked Krul, there's every chance he would have won the shoot out he set out to achieve.

Shouldn't the above pre-able have read "Germany are now massive favourites to win the World Cup so let's continue to ignore them as we have done throughout the tournament - except for a few hours the other night when it was impossible to do so - and run with an article on the Argentina coach instead"?

What a strange thing to say. He won on penalties. After his best player and entire team was negated by a weaker side.

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish

rop Rooney (he's so disappointing, overrated and overpaid), and play Di Maria and RVP upfront, much like the set up at the Netherlands team with Roben and RVP...
