The Final Eight

Germany beats Argentina
Italy beats Ukraine
Portugal beats England
Brazil beats (the shit out of) France


Italy beats Germany in an incredible upset
Brasil takes Portugal

and finally

Brasil bests Italy in the World Cup.


  • You really think Germany's gonna beat Argentina? Karin certainly thinks so, and everybody here hopes so, but I'm not quite so sure. I can't say that very loud around here, though.

  • yeah, i believe so, but i guess you never can tell. The entire German team may wake up on the wrong side of the bed for all i know. But judging from their performance so far, i think they'll take 'em.

  • Man, I can't wait till the Argentina-Germany game. Before this thing got started I never would have given Germany a chance, but their performance so far gives me pause...

    But if Germany does beat Argentina, there is no way they would lose to Italy...

    But the futbol gods are cruel and I guess they could engineer an a repeat of the most boring of world cup finals ever, the 1994 WC, Italy-Brazil Baggio blunder.

    Man! either a Germany-Brazil or even better an Argentina-Brazil final would be awesome!

  • as everyone has heard me say before, I was IN RIO DE JANERO when Brazil lost to France in 1998. It was sad to say the least. For one reason, I missed out on potentially the biggest party ever, for second, I love Brazil! so ever since then, I'm a Brazil fan for LIFE! and I hope they do beat the S#@t out of France.

  • Prediction #2: Done (and handily i might add)

    By Blogger Killy, at 10:35 AM  

  • Prediction 3 (liveblogging): Portugal keeps up a relentless but fruitless attack in teh 43rd minute!

    44th minute: portugal can't get through. The whole game they've been passing the ball as if it were filled with cement.

    45th minute: can't get through but england can't take it up either. an anemic shot on goal, but the goalie easily gets it.

    46th minute: england gets a corner kick. nothing. another corner

    47th minute: portugal on the attack! nothing.

    game over 0 - 0 into penalty kicks!

  • extra time: fuitless portugal attack.

    englad gets free kick. corner kick for england. nothing.

    portugal on the attack. shot on goal. missed. lots of tries on goal. lots of runs ...

    8th minute: england with a free kick. an amazing opportunity that went nowhere!

    10th minute: only crouch is left up front. the english team consitutes its defence! portugal seems to be constantly on the attack. england blows a great run.

    14th minute: back and forth. back and forth. portugal shot on goal! missed! so close!

    15th minute: the extra time is over. 0 -0 tie.

    Another 15 minutes all or nothing. overtime.

    3rd minute: Protugal header and goal!!! but he was offsides!

    7th minute: back and forth. so frustrating. crouch flops. portugal back on the attack. long cross shot and misses. goal kick.

    9th minute: portugal on the attack again. shot on goal. goalie gets it. England is counting on making it to penalty kicks. Portugal is desperately trying to score. England is very worried, very tense.

    11th minute: nothing. more back and forth.

    14th minute: it's almost over. england is stalling. 0 - 0 after 120 minutes of playing!!! it's going into penalty kicks.
