France sent the "unbeatable" Brasilians home.
And Italy never lost a game against Germany in the finals round of WC. Draw your own conclusions. I'am emotionally much to envolved

Now it's getting really thrilling.

Germany vs Italy -- Italy vs France -- Portugal v France

After watching the fantastic display by France yesterday I have to say
that im cheering for France! I hope they play as well against Portugal.
It's hard to say who's going to win in the Germany vs Italy match. Italy
has an awesome defence (incl the goalkeeper) and there havn't been scored
a single goal aginst them in this WC. However, they havn't had that hard
opponents yet. Germany plays well too, so it's hard to predict. One thing,
im 100% sure of, is that we'r going to have a european champion

Yeah. France's game yesterday was fantastic. They defeated the most successful team in history superiorly in standard time. Nice is also, that they verified the 1998 victory and proved that this win wasn't just home advantage or fixed in any kind.
Well done Zidane & Co. !

The French and the Gremans are definately the better teams at playing football - however the Portuguese and Italians are better at cheating and playign the referrees......

I find myself in the strangely foriegn territory of genuinely hoping the Germans win?!!

I'd prefer if it were France. Watching Zizou play against Brazil like he could when he was ten years younger was great. Portugal would be good too - since thay haven't won it before, and are capable of playing very attractive football (though it wasn't evident against England). Italy and Germany can be too negative for me to get behind them, but that does mean it will probably be one of those teams, since that's the type of play that wins competitions.

Germany lost! All major teams that I bet on earlier are out (Germany, Brazil, England, Argentina). But this is good for FIFA. New champions are welcome. Wish a country from Africa or Asia wins this cup at least once in my lifetime.

This time not possible because all are European countries
