World Cup 2010: Don't Cry for me Argentina
With Brazil gone, the World had looked to Argentina to come out on top in the World Cup in South Africa. But it was Germany that looked like a bunch of gladiators straight out of the movie “400” as they completely dismantled the favorite Argentina with an all-out ruthless attack winning the game 4-0.
You could probably blame the first two German goals on Argentina’s coach Diego Maradona. Both goals came as Argentina’s offside-trap, which is a play that the coaches are responsible to perfect, but it was completely all over the place and easy to exploit. Thomas Muller was able to walk in totally unmarked for an easily deflection to score Germany’s first goal. On Germany’s second goal, Miroslav Klose was able to walk the ball past the goal line for the easiest goal of his life. Maybe Diego should have spent more time with Argentina’s defense…
Here Come the Germans
I have never seen a more dominating team in a Clash of the Titans. Germany not only won this game easily, but also they never stopped coming… they just kept rubbing the salt into the wounds of Argentina. After 2-0, you could sense that Argentina was giving up, but Germany would not stop laying down the smack.
It was like watching UFC fight with no referee to stop the slaughter. Germany kept pounding the ball at the Argentina net, and they scored two more late goals that had Argentinean fans in disbelief.
I usually don’t make a prediction until I feel 100% on something, but now I feel that it is a 100% lock to pick the Germans to win the World Cup. Their power, strategy and relentless attack are just too much for any other team to handle. If anyone is going to stop Germany, they are going to need some Kryptonite, because Germany looks like Supermen.
