Hope you enjoyed the two World Cup days off… And if you didn’t, welcome to the team!! But before getting into business let me or allow me to take a time to celebrate my 100% accurate prediction results!!! haha…
To be honest probably I got them right along with a lot of people, it was kind of the expected 😉 but in any case let me tell you good job if you got it right too!
During this World Cup with have seen many surprises and just a few chances to actually get any prediction right so let’s go to a Miguel Herrera celebration level hahaha!!
Hahaha!! You got to love him, that is passion people, that is futbol!!! Ahh we miss his epic celebrations, that is for sure.
Now that we celebrated and took it out of our system, let’s calm down our energy and re-focus on today’s Semifinals!! This matches are tough not only for the teams but also for us to predict or to have an idea of what is going to happen.
Brazil – Germany
First semifinal, I still amazed how this is only their second time they have face each others in World Cup, and it was during 2002 final that ended with Brazil victory and their fifth title!
This means revenge time for Germany, the team that has looked more consistent during this World Cup, very strong and very well-organized, meaning the Germans being Germans, hehe… great midfielders and we can say that they are favorites in this semifinals!
Brazil on the other hand, they wont have their super star Neymar, everything revolved around him, the team and the whole country will miss it, Before he got injured Brazil were probably the favorites, they had very goof chances according to most journalist and analyst but now without Neymar their best man in this tournament and if you add the lost of their captain Thiago Silva (yellow cards) in defense things now look a little uphill, meaning it will be hard for them to advance, the team will have to come up with good substitutions for both players and get together in spirit and also in their game. The country and the world is watching
I will go against all odds, I pick Brazil!! Eooo do Brazil 🙂
Argentina – The Netherlands
This one is a bit more level, with an Argentinian team that have been improving in each match, still not playing at the expected level, but they started with a clear Messi dependency but with each match they still have it, but we have seen other player slowly stepping up and showing up on important match. They lost one of their best players Di Maria injured, will miss Semifinals, that is confirmed we don’t know what will happen if their advance, but he was the one beside Messi that was trying and they have found themselves and were working together very well. Higuain made his appearance on quarterfinals, finally he found his goal and he did it when his team needed him the most… Very open chances, it will depend a lot on them and how they play the semifinals, if they show their best game they will certainly have the best chances.
The Netherland, have suffered a lot in their last matches, extra time in quarterfinals vs Costa Rica, penalties which are always stressful and can drain any team, but they have shown a lot of mental strength, and they have the best attacking players on Van Persie, Sneijder and their best player Robben. It will be hard to stop them if they are in their best form and they look like they are very fit and ready to get to the finals again.
This is an interesting match, but I will pick Argentina, they have Messi the best player in the World, they reached the semifinals again after 24 years, that has to be a great motivation, for that and because they can still show their best game, I will give them final!
At the end may the best teams wins and advance or the ones that score more goals hehe!!
As you can see I’m predicting a Brazil vs Argentina final oiiiii… That’s nother level of rivalry!
We are in the last stages of the World Cup!! Let’s enjoy it, this is a football party!
Well done Colombia, I will miss the dancing!
Don’t get too excited or you can get into Sabella’s mode hehe.
