    I could see a German win coming today but nothing like this. I felt that the Germans were a bit better coming out of the Round of 16 because of their defensive skill. Argentina has been shaky at the back this entire tournament and I felt that Germany could expose that. The only question was which German team would show: the one that dismantled Australia or the one that lost to Serbia?

    We had our answer less that three minutes in when Germany scored to take a lead that they would not relinquish. I felt that Argentina would score one or two and giving up four seemed unlikely, although this is the third match in which the Germans have scored four times.

    In the end, this was a disgrace to Maradona's side and the controversial coach will now have to face the music back home. As for Germany, they looked all the part of World Cup favorites.moreless

  • QUOTES (3)

    • Germany Forward Thomas Müller: (who is suspended for the semi-final) What's happened today is obviously just unbelievable. After you've played Argentina off the park and beaten them 4-0, you're basically speechless. The star today was definitely the team, yet again. We're all playing at the limit, every one of us is giving everything for the cause. I hope my team-mates do everything right in the semi-final, and maybe I'll score again in the Final.

    • Argentina Forward Carlos Tevez: Losing like that really hurts. I'm personally wounded, I feel the pain, but that's football. We were appalling today. Sometimes you fail to live up to your own expectations. I really don't now why this has happened. They totally dominated us, and we never had enough possession. On top of that, our counter-attacking play was atrocious, but I'm not pointing the finger at anyone.

    • Germany Coach Joachim Low: The football we played in the second half was top class. My team showed the desire and commitment of champions. I never imagined we'd win by this margin. We talked about many things, and my team did so many of them to perfection, it was terrific.
