    Thanks for the A2A!

    Not surprised that most people here are going with Germany. Who can blame them after what happened the other night.

    Anyway, as far as I am concerned, 7-1 had more to do with Brazil’s inadequacies than with Germany’s brilliance. Germany just made the most of whatever chances were presented to them. Now, Argentina is no Brazil when it comes to defending. Their defense was criticized a lot before the tournament began. But, from what I have seen, especially in the knockout rounds, they have been the best defensive unit by far.

    World cup finals tend to be cagey affairs with an odd goal proving to be decisive more often than not. Defenses win such games and while the Argentinians have looked solid in defense, the Germans have conceded some needless goals against the likes of Algeria and Brazil (one argument against this is that both the games were already won by the time they conceded).

    So, to sum things up, Germany have indeed looked the strongest side in the tournament thus far. I wouldn’t be surprised if they end up with the trophy. But, to answer your question, I’m going to stick with my pre-tournament prediction – Argentina!
