Agree with a lot of that and you're right regarding Brazil in that first half. All that being I still think they'll have too much for Argentina. The German midfield is just so impressive and that's where games are won and lost most of the time. Masherano was excellent last night but he was up against light weights compared to the challenge the Germans present. The only way I see Argentina winning is if they restrict the Germans completely and Messi comes to the fore - big style. But I just don't see them containing a powerful, well oiled machine like Germany.
