So it all comes down to this. Years of preparation, a months worth of tournament football and now, there are only two teams left – Germany and Argentina. The semi-finals that both sides managed to navigate couldn’t have been further apart. Germany embarrassed the hosts Brazil, ending up with an unbelievable 7-1 victory whilst Argentina squeezed past the Netherlands on penalties. Germany’s Miroslav Klose wrote himself into the history books after his goal against Brazil made him the record goal scorer in World Cup history with 16 goals and he will be desperate to lift the trophy. In Klose and Germany’s way stands Argentina and one Lionel Messi, who could arguably become the greatest player ever if he and his team win the World Cup.
