Second Semi-Final: Germany vs Spain

If Spain were to win tonight, then that would make it a guarantee that a nation not having previously won the World Cup would be taking the trophy home for the first time this year.

This, on top of the fact that it is now confirmed that a European nation will win the World Cup outside Europe for the first time.

But, I don’t think that Spain are going to do it, they’ve proved they are a good outfit, especially making it this far but they are facing a German team that are getting stronger and stronger for each game. There is a real strength in the counter attacking skills of Germany that I don’t think Spain will be  strong enough for them and sets up a re-run of the 1974 final in Germany.

    I have supported Spain from the start of this World Cup. I still am 🙂 But Germany played a solid game and proved to be a very strong team. I am a bit sad to see these two teams facing each other in the semifinals, because I believed that both of them offered the best football at this World Cup, showed great quality in their game and also offered a pleasant game to the eye of the viewer. I wish this will be the final because both of them deserve it.
    I believe that this one will be close although Germany proved to be a scoring machine. I hope though that the winner of this semifinal will also be the winner of the World Cup 🙂
    P.S. Until now Paul the Octopus proved to be very accurate in his predictions. Let’s see if he keeps it up 😉
