World Cup surprise

With one or two refreshments i caught the end of the Argentina v Germany game yesterday (I have started doing some work for a local financial institution who actually have plasma TV's IN their offices with the World Cup on?!).

The result really surprised me as Argentina looked on fire at the start of the tournament. Germany though, have gone from strength to strength and now look like the favourites to me. They don't have any outstanding individual players, but as a team, and with the crowd behind them, they are playing some good football.

But, for me the Argentinian manager (now resigned) threw the game away with his bizarre changes. It's ok to take your best players off in the last few minutes when you're 2-0 up, but at 1-0 and with 20 minutes to go he made some very bad decisions which ultimately cost them the match... and the world cup - no game will be harder than against the Germans.

It's getting interesting, but i expect a Germany Brazil final, but i'm not sure how to call it. If Ronaldinho wakes up Brazil will win it, but if he doesn't, it will be very, very Klose.
