We’re down to the fianl four; Europe vs South America.
Germany and Brazil have won eight World Cups between them but have only played each other once, in the Korea-Japan 2002 World Cup Final.
Brazil came out victorious from the two meetings with Germany in the Confederations Cup:
(4:0) in the 1999 Guadalajara group stage;
(3:2) in the 2005 Nuremberg semi-final.
Without Neymar and captain Thiago Silva, Brazil will need the home support more than ever. Germany are saying that they’re without Angela Merkul, who has a meeting with the Chinese, and Philipp Lahm needs to be in bed at ten.
Holland and Argentina have met each other four times at the World Cup Finals; with Argentina only winning once (3:1aet) in the Argentina 1978 World Cup Final.
Holland have had their moments and so have Argentina. In terms of support, this is almost a home game for Argentina.
