    Germany are big favourites(despite the home support for Brazil) IMO. Brazil without their arguably best defender and leader and without Neymar are gonna need all their players to really step up, especially Fred, if they want to go through.

    I have a feeling Scolari will park the bus though and try to get in a goal through a corner or FK.

    Hwedes has started every match so far, there is no way Durm would get the nod ahead of him in a semi-final. Sad, but it is what it is. I would have loved to see Durm play, hate the sight of Hwedes at LB to be honest.

    Or Durm for that matter.

    You talk about players who are used to CL knockout matches and even CL finals, who are used to hateful audiences in Dortmund or Gelsenkirchen, who are used to the crowds in the EPL. So not to burst your bubble, but them being intimidated is most likely not going to happen.

    Jup. Arguably with the best overall potential at his disposal, yet he fell short over and over again due to his own limitations.
    Of course there are more reasons why to get rid of him, but I don't want to start another Lw is good/shit because... discussion. Had those way too often and getting tired of em. But the above reason is ofc the most obvious argument to hold against him.
    But who knows, maybe he'll finally redeems himself. Brazil a farcry of the Brazil of the glory days and then the Dutch in the final... no Italian or Spanish nemesis for him. If not this time, he'll never make it. Was prolly never as easy as this time to win the WC, shitty climate aside.

    Which is why it has never been as easy (for Germany with Lw at the helm) to win the WC...

    No, they don't.
    Holland is too strong, with to good a form and Argentina never looked even close to "impressive" in any of their matches. The whole team doesn't seem like it ever clicked. Also their coach is shit, while van Gaal is a genius. Di Maria is out. Messi alone will not be enough.

    1st match was pathetic, no link between the strikers and midfield at all (was there even a midfield? not sure). Then he was "convinced" by the players to change tactics and formation. Then there were other occasions were guys like Lavezzi clearly indicated they had no respect at all for him.
    Compare that to "I got balls" van Gaal. Not even close.
