    I guess who I root for here depends on who wins the first one. As a non-fan, would like to get into it with traditional rivalries like Ger-Ned and Brazil-Argentina.

    Have to agree with this. Despite backing against Brazil throughout the tipping comp, I suspected we'd have a Brazil-Argentina final from the beginning, as I guess many did.

    Don't really like the Dutch team at the moment, but still rooting for a Germany vs Netherlands final.

    Going with Holland because they've brought far more excitement to the tournament so far. Plus the United connection.

    The Netherlands have basically been my 2nd national team since I can remember.

    A Brazil v Argentina final would be an absolute farce, two utterly **** teams.

    I'm OK with anyone except Brazil winning it. Probably prefer Argentina just to shut Pele up.

    Argentina's only redeeming features are Messi and the fact that they have an anti-Brazil song to the tune of Bad Moon Rising.

    I know we are supposed to hate them but I have never had anything against Argentina. Have often liked them but this side has nothing on the Riquelme side of 2006, so like everyone else it is all about Messi for me, want him to win it. It is such a shame that Aguero has not been fit, would have been so much better to watch if he had been.

    Feel it's falling apart a bit for Argie with Aguero and Di Maria injuries. But I guess with Messi anything is possible.

    Di Maria is out but reports are that Aguero is fit for the Holland game.
