Who will be in the World Cup final?

Saturday, July 3, 2010

Its really starting to get exiting now. Two teams have already booked their place in the World Cup semi-final. Holland beat Brazil 2-1 yesterday after coming back from a goal down, whilst Uruguay went all the way to penalties against Ghana. They were lucky to get their though, after Luis Suarez handled the ball on the line Ghana had the chance to win it in the 31st minute of extra time. Unfortunately for Ghana, Asamoah Gyan missed the penalty and Uruguay went to on to win the penalty shootout 4-2.

So it was an exciting day of football to say the least, and today promises to be just as heart throbbing for the teams involved. Argentina play Germany in the early game, and Spain play Paraguay later on today. I'm really looking forward to the Argentina v Germany game, both teams have been really impressive so far. I think Argentina will come out on top. They have the ability to score goals out of nowhere and with Messi anything is possible for them. I'm not very confident on my prediction though, as Germany have some very impressive players in their ranks e.g Ozil, Muller and Schweinstieger.

In the later game, Spain will play Paraguay where both teams will be hoping to make it through to play either Germany or Argentina. I think Spain will have too much quality for Paraguay, who didn't look very threatening against Japan.

I would expect Holland to beat Uruguay. They have a very potent attack force with Robben, Sneijder and Van Persie, whilst Uruguay will rely only on Diego Forlan. I would also expect Argentina to make it to the final. Spain are weak at the back and Argentina have probably been the best attacking force in the competition so far.

So my prediction is Holland to play Argentina in the final. Who will win it? I have no idea. At least the football is no longer painful to watch, the World Cup is finally entertaining to watch.
