And then there were two…..
Germany and Argentina fight out the destiny of the 2014 World Cup at the Maracana Stadium in Brazil’s capital Rio de Janeiro later tonight.
Looking back at the ante-post odds it’s hardly an unexpected final – but what has been wholly unexpected was the 7-1 demolition of the host nations against an exciting German side in the semi-finals.
It’s hard to imagine anything can happen on the pitch tonight to prevent the 7-1 game being the memory of longevity from Brazil 2014.
Argentina’s progression this far has been as much down to their defence as it has the attack. They have kept four clean sheets and yet to concede a goal during the knock out phase.
In attack, Messi still has his critics – despite four goals but for us it’s more a case of his fellow attackers not performing as well as expected.
Sergio Aguero has had fitness problems and Gonzalo Higuain and Angel Di Maria have only managed one goal each. Di Maria is unlikely to be fit enough to start tonight.
The bad news for Argentina is that Germany are expected to name the same side which thrashed Brazil 7-1.
It’s been a great tournament and Germany probably deserve to win it the most but they look short now in the betting and with plenty of stadium support for Argentina it could take longer than 90 minutes to resolve.
Surely no one’s going to complain about getting an extra 30 minutes of Brazil 2014 ?
