it really makes no sense. you should just go in order from your best taker. you might not even get to penalty #4 or #5 if you miss your early ones.

Ah well, not good enough in the end : congrats Argies Ale

Told you that it's risky to rely on penalties. Wonder why Holland got so cocky in this regard? Not a feasible strategy.

Bad game, wasting all attack, Have Torres upfront for the last three games, LVG wasting his sub by starting De Jong. And who decided that Vlaar shoots first?


Deserved to lose


Bleh. Congrats Argentina.

And Congrats Germany! This one is in the bag.

We'll see. It'll be a completely new match on Sunday, a different match.

Disappointed Dutchies, we did our part...

Id guess it's more that they didn't believe they could win in regular play.. So held out for pens. A lack of belief that they could win.. The anti Belgium. Presumably a stance you respect.

A shame that Argentina reach the final without Zanetti, Simeone, Batistuta, Riquelme etc.

van Gaal not looking like a genius right now. Krul should have started if he is that much better at pens than Cillessen, Cillessen is probably a better footballer as Krul plays hoofball with us, but his general keeping doesn't seem any better. As for Vlaar taking the first pen, that was bizarre.

No, because it's nonsense anyway. If you knew Dutchies, you knew that the last thing they lack is self belief.

Plus, this is actually the same team that put 5 past Spain. Belgium would have aimed for Felliani's fro while the Spanish midgets would have run rings around them.

So you think they believed they could win but chose to not try and win?
