I know he's vile and everyone hates him, but robben has been freaking stellar the whole tournament. If he won the golden ball I wouldn't complain.

My pre-tournament bet was Argentina and i think they are maybe gaining the upper hand here.

Really enjoyable first half. Germans were unlucky there with the header.

Guess Argentina is the only team allowed to give out head shots in their opinion.

I may be getting into this sport since I can now consider a 0-0 game that doesn't involve the US exciting.

Höwedes would be pretty good if he could actually play football.

Does he normally play centre half Gaucho? Seems a bit ponderous and slow for a full back.

Germany played the old school Dan Bylsma grind these ******** down game.

And I like Schweinsteiger. Great player took his share of hits today.

The best team of the tournament won.

Also a big fan of Schweinsteiger. Super-hard worker, very sound player.

Wore down in the 2nd half. Like the Netherlands game. Fundamental flaw in the tournament that you have to be a robot like robben to retain your fitness after that many aggregate minutes.
