Thank you for joining us here at We look forward to the Final between Germany and Argentina!

Maxi Rodriguez slams it in and Argentina are headed to the World Cup Final!!!!

Kuyt sends Romero the wrong way!

Aguero slots it passed Cillessen!

Sneijder's shot is saved!

Garay slams it into the top of the net 2-1 Argentina!

Robben's sends the keeper the wrong way. Goal!

Messi puts it away for Argentina!

Romero saves Vlaar's shot!

Whoever goes first wins 60% of the time. It will be Holland up first.

120'-The final whistle blows. We have seen 120 minutes of scoreless soccer. It will now come down to the dreaded but necessary penalty kick shootout.

115'-Chance for Palacios as he gets in behind the Dutch backline, but the ball was bouncing awkwardly as he wasn't able to get any power on a header from about 6 yards out.

It was in this same stadium that Argentina found a late winner (118') against Switzerland. Can history repeat itself?

108'-Zabaleta is being tended to on the floor. Looks as though he has a gash in his mouth. He will most likely continue though. Good news for Argentina.

The second fifteen are underway! Can someone find a winner here?

105+1'-The mid time whistle blows as we have one more set of 15 minutes left to play.

105'-Yellow card for Huntelaar after a challenge on Mascherano in the centre of the pitch.

100'-Lavezzi comes off in favor of Maxi Rodriguez.

99'-Robben with a shot from about 30 out. Romero does well to hold onto it though.

96'-Huntelaar comes on for an obviously unfit Robin van Persie.

The first period of extra time is underway!

90'+3- The final whistle blows as we are headed for overtime. 0-0 it remains as we are set for another 30 minutes of semifinal soccer. 

90'-Robben has a chance to send Holland into the Final but Mascherano comes in with a last second tackle to save the Argentines!

86'-Corner for Holland after a good tackle from Demichelis on Robben. Once again, nothing comes of it. 

81'-Palacio and Aguero coming on for Perez and Higuain. A very attack minded substitution from the Argentine coach. 


75'- Argentina with the biggest chance of the game. Higuain puts the cross into the side netting, despite many thinking it was in the goal.

72'- Free kick for Argentina on the right flank. Messi's ball is not what you'd expect as it goes out for a goal kick. 


62'-Jordy Clasie comes on for Nigel De Jong.


55'-Messi with a dangerous run just outside the area but Vlaar comes in with a great tackle to take the ball away from the small Barcelona man. 

49'-Early free kick for Holland about 30 yards out to the left of the box as Demichelis sees a yellow for his challenge. A complete waste from Sneijder though as he decides to have a strike on goal. It goes nowhere near Romero though as Van Gaal can only shake his head on the sideline. 


45'-The second half kicks off. 

Janmaat comes on for Martins Indi (yellow card) to start the half.

HALFTIME: The score after a very lackluster first half remains 0-0. 

44'-Yellow for Martin Indi. It was an accumulation card as it was about the fourth time that he has tugged on Messi's jersey.

43'-Nothing happening for either side at this point in the game.

38'-Sneijder looks as if he has picked up a knock after a strong challenge from Demichelis. 

Wesley Sneijder is literally attached to Messi's hip. He is on him at all times giving him no space anywhere on the pitch he goes.

32'-Corner for Holland. Romero punches out. 


28'- Mascherano seems to have sustained a head injury. He gets up and walks off the field which will be a positive sign for Argentina. 

24'-A corner for Argentina is met by the head of Garay, only for his header to go miles over the bar. 

23'-Lavezzi and Mascherano have been the best players on the pitch thus far. 


20'-Nothing comes of it. Argentina is pushing up very high forcing the Dutch into a handful of errors in their own third. If Holland somehow gets out of their own half, they'll have a massive break in their favor. 

19'-Corner for Argentina. the second ten minutes has seen them be the better side. 


14'-He puts it on target but Cillessen does well to hold onto the ball!

13'-Free kick for Argentina about 23 yards out just to the right of the centre of the box. Messi territory!

11'-Free kick for Argentina from the left flank. Van PErsie tracking back does well to clear the ball out of a dangerous area. 

10'-Holland have controlled early but the Argentines look very dangerous when they have gotten into the final third. Messi once again at the center of everything going forward.

6'-Robben gets in behind the Argentine backline but is flagged offside. That's already the second time he has crept in behind Garay. 


Argentina has won all of their five games by only one goal. 

1'-Kickoff Argentina are in their famous white and blue while the Dutch are wearing their Orange jerseys!
