Whoo! 2-0 win for the Netherlands over Chile, cementing their place at the top of Group B. The Netherlands will be facing Mexico and Brazil will be facing Chile in the Round of 16.

Netherlands vs. Mexico. That ending!

You could tell playing in 38.8C took its toll on the Dutch. Thank the Force for that penalty shot.

Yeah, and it's not a dry heat. The humidity makes it all more taxing on the unprepared players.

Germany massacred Brazil 7:1, and is the first finalist.

5:0 in the first half. In a semi final. Shocked

Only three matches left!

^ It's strange, but I was depressed all day after watching that game. I mean look at these fans! Sad







This one's the worst:



I'm very worried about today's game. Robin Van Persie may be unable to play due to a stomach illness.

I hope you're not to sad Reep! Loosing after a penalty shootout is allways tough.
Holland is still in the game for the 3rd place, which is not bad at all.


Oh and about that Brazilian who is holding the cup in the pic you've posted:

After the game he gave his cup to a Germany fan for luck in the finals.


Just two more matches left!

^ Haha. Aww, that's nice.

I'm still pretty disappointed, but I'm glad the Netherlands still have one more game.

Well the game is still on, but there is no way this Brazil will win. Congrats Reep on the 3rd place.

I'm glad the Netherlands went out with a bang. They weren't expected to come this far, so I'm proud of them. I'm looking forward to what they will do in Euro 2016. Smile

I think penalty shootouts should be abolished from the World Cup though, at least in the knockout stages. It's a horrible way to go out.

It is, but after 120 minutes of running it's unlikely that anyone will be able to do any more, so if for that reason alone it's better to end it that way. Besides, there's nothing more dramatic, both as a fan and as a penalty taker, than a penalty shoot out.
