Semi Finals - Day 2

Over to you Netherlands and Argentina.  

WOW, we have our first finalists!!!  Congratulations to Germany for making it all the way to the 2014 World Cup final.  You’re that bit closer, and what a signal of intent.  
Yesterdays game was historic in many ways, first Klose broke the 15 goal mark and notched in hist 16th (in four World Cups) to ensure he goes into the record books as the all time greatest Goalscorer in World Cup Football.  Fox in the box indeed, with all 16 goals being scored from no further than the penalty spot.  Genius :)
So, 5-0 down after just 30 minutes or so…the weight of a nation just dropped and left to smash on the floor…  Never seen anything like it, not in a World Cup semi final…  The Germans were unplayable and the Brazilians…, well, the best thing they have is the fact there is one more game they HAVE to play…  at least they can try and salvage some sort of pride from this disaster.  This will be a moment in Brazilian football they will never forget, no matter how hard they try!

Tonights games has a lot to follow after last night.  The Dutch lest we forget have already provided us memorable moments – the 5-1 thrashing of the Globetrotting team that was Spain, that Van Persie header against the Spanish, the Goalkeeper substitution at the end of the Quarter Finals just for the penalties, the countless Robben dives…  The Argentinians have Messi, nuff said.  He is doing his best to emulate Maradona and has pretty much carried them on his own in many of the games.  Has he enough left to help guide the “Albicelestes" through to the Final, as the opening line said…. Over to you…

Finally, You have fought hard for your country.  You did your best.  The fans feel the pain of losing too.  On the whole, people will forgive you if they see you gave your all.  Sometimes however, doing your best, it is just not good enough…  There can only be the one winner.   Without the other 31 teams though there is no show.  The other 31 teams, the hosts, they all help contribute to a great spectacle.  Welcome Home http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-28196059

There you go. Have yourself a lovely Wednesday “Hump Day” - They have already started coming!
