Semi final 2: Argentina vs Holland

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.

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.

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.

I quite like the idea of the best South American team vs. the best European team.

(West) Germany vs. Argentina played in the 1990 Final too so there are other rivalries.

Thta would be NL - ARG :) .



That's hardly a rivalry compared to either NL-GER or BRA-ARG.
- Not according to the Fifa rankings, nor in my opinion either.
- I know its not as big, just saying their is something there.
