Yeah, that is our weak spot tonight. Seems like BMI will get substituted, he didn't look fit as well. Hope the second half is better..

Krle suddenly switches allegience and doesn't as usual wish Holland the worst as Clasie comes on

And Clasie's first three passes are forward in contrast to de Jong and the mispassing Wijnaldum

I really thought that was in from Hig... the crowd sounded like it was obviously not in though, no reaction from them (unless you count silence as reaction)

Same

Argentina for once with attacking subs. Palacio for box to box Perez.
Higuain unlucky to get subbed.

I thought Argentina played better with their original eleven.

Perez and Higuain weren't bad at all.

Much better, Perez was pretty good and Palacio is just Palacio

Who do you not want to see take a penalty for NL? I wouldn't back Wijnaldum...

Omg Vlaar, whose idea was it to let him take the first penalty? Was expecting a scud and with Cilessen in goal, you knew nothing would be saved.

Credit nonetheless.
Vlaar MOTM 8 or 9/10 performance. The guy belongs in a top 5 team imo. Better than calamity, kaboul and this season's vertonghen for sure

De Vrij didn't set a foot wrong. 7 7,5/10 performance. Good enough for a better league with a good partner.

Kuijts passing tonight wasn't great but credit to him for the effort. Sneijder despite being in the fall of his career had a better game than in the earlier games.

Argentina's main man was Mascherano. Real water carrier. Perez and Demechelis also were good.

In contrast to the 98 / 2000 generation, this lot got the max out of themselves. Can only look up to them.
Anyone trying to belittle them needs his head sorted. You can't ask for more.

This World Cup was so much fun in total - until today. You can´t ask for more....of course not. But when you´re that close to this damn golden thing you want it. The chance to grab it finally was there. An overaged Spain out early, the hosts eliminated. Argentina not better only luckier. I am disappointed. My team has to play the 3rd place match, the Germans who have won so much already in the past are allowed to play the final. After struggling through the tournament against crap like Ghana and Algeria.

Another 4 years of waiting.

Yee the Vlaar taking first pen decision seemed a bit erratic....it almost seems to me tht Van gaal has got a bit carried away with making "out of the box" decisions and knowing tht he isnt going to be there anymore after the tournament ends wanted to go out with a bang and being known as a tactical genius!

Mascherano was immense tonight. Always been one of my favourite players since i first saw him playing for Argentina under 17s back in the day!

Yeah Mascherano, alongside Zabaleta were the best players on Argentina side. Vlaar was no doubt the best on the Dutch side followed by Cillissen and De Vrij.

You´re seriously blaming Vlaar? Penalty shootouts are always luck. From the past we all should know that.

wtf was Huntelaar going to do?

Should have been Krul last sub. Wrong decision by VG.

A statue would have given the Argie players more fright than Cillessen He did zilch in the shootout.

Anyway great tournament for the Dutch. Some great displays by unheralded players are always the best to enjoy and it confuses the fvck out of the xtratime fanboys which is good.
