Wow, didn't realise that, but that's what goalline technology is for :D Sneijder still missed though. Holland's players were very nervous because they knew their keeper couldn't catch a penalty and...

Neuer is obviously the best keeper in the world at the moment, but funnily enough Van Gaal had a massive row with Bayern Munich over him because he refused to buy him. He has some kind of bizarre...

Messi is their captain. He scored 4 crucial goals and assisted on another. He scored their first penalty against Holland. I'm not saying he is the best player who ever lived, but to say he hasn't...

Best World Cup performances you have witnessed

What are your top World Cup performances by individual players (in your lifetime)?

I can only go as far back as Paul Gascoigne in 1990- best WC performance by an English player I ever saw. He...

I'm a woman, so Cannavaro can be speaking Italian for all I care :blush:

Jokes aside though, I don't find his English is that bad :confused:

Why is there such an under-appreciation for defenders on this form? A team can win a World Cup final without a striker, but it is almost impossible to win without a good defender. Messi made no...

Obviously the good teams will man mark him and won't allow him to have a great impact. That's the reason they are good teams. Neither Robben nor Messi were allowed any space whatsoever last night...

1990 was the year England had a better team than Germany and a real chance of winning the WC (once Italy were out).

My fellow Azzurri fan is back! I agree with you of course. It was a fascinating game for me too. Argentina completely disabled Robben and Holland completely disabled Messi. Brilliant defending from...

Sneijder should have played last night. Then he wouldn't have been in it. He was the worst person on the pitch.

Not everyone. I prefer a tight tactical 0-0 or 1-1 game between equals to a rubbish 8 goal game.

More goals does not equal better football. But then my team is Italy :p

This may just turn into a replay of my favourite WC final of 2006. Two top quality teams with completely opposing styles of football both hungry for the cup. I hope so anyway!

However, if Argentina score first it will be very difficult for Germany to come back from that. If Germany don't score in the first half, they will lose the game. That's my assessment of the...

Just like Italy raised the cup in 2006 winning (in style) against "beautiful" football of Germany and France, Argentina might just do it this year.

Brazil without Silva and Neymar were ridiculous. As much as I love Fabio Cannavaro who is the best defender I have ever seen play, I really must question his praise for David Luiz before...

But surely watching one team concede goals over and over again is not as entertaining as watching a tight game between equals in which anything could happen?
