De Jong is back tonight.

Will he hack Messi down in the first five minutes?

The first ten minutes?

The first twenty minutes?

Or all three, and every ten minutes after?

You have to find the address of the video, then it's pretty easy.
I fixed it for you.

Holland vs. Argentina is coming up.

THanks, Kiu! Enjoy the match as the mighty Dutch attempt to knock Messi out as Kieran alluded to above.

Virgil Cane is the name ...

Robben was superbly defended by Argentina, but they themselves could not create a clear chance either. This game needs a goal like a junkie needs a hit.

Yeah, it's cagey, isn't it? Van Persie seems to be out of his depth. Marginally, the Argies are better...

I don't think RVP did anything since the very first match actually...

No, he's not all that, is he? Messi is getting involved, but so far it's very cagey...

It feels like one superb individual effort will get it done and it could be Messi, Robben....

Glad Argentina won. Hope they play better in the final.

Dutch were stronger, but not strong enough...

Glad for Argentina , into the final again. They created more chances

Their offensive is really weak but I cant believe I am saying this but their defense is great. Before the world cup, we all thought that their defense was pathetic but boy has that changed. I dont think Robben even played the ball in the first half

Mascherano has been playing good defense for Argentina all tournament.

I am also glad Argentina won.

I wonder if the winners get to keep the trophy: it'll be their third since the Jules Rimet trophy was claimed by the Brazilians in 1970...

Both teams had amazing defensive schemes, no? Robben got nothing, neither did Messi. The next guy was always right there if the first line of defense was breached...

I kinda want Messi to win the cup so he won't be the best player ever to not win a world cup, but I still maintain Germany takes this.

Actually, why did not they bring him after his success other day. Is it because they
were not allowed to do any more substitutions? I think he might have made a difference
again.

I only watched the first half because of a film screening for work. I'm happy Argentina won. I'm kinda with Murat: it seems that Messi should score in the final and win. He's the best player. But Germany are looking ominously imposing.

Cruyff never won the World Cup. Puskas, di Stefano. There might be others as good or better than Messi who never won it...
