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.
