Last night Rubbish France opened the door to the semi finals for Germany, a glancing header from smouldering pin-up Mats Hummels proving enough.
Colombia went for it but just didn't have what it takes to defeat Brazil in the latest episode of Clogging For Jesus. The World Cup's Own Boy James Rodríguez is going home. Neymar (broken back) and Thiago Silva (suspension) both out of the semi-final against Germany. Big Phil has a Big Cry about his team of marmalizers losing their only creative player, fails to mention the hundreds of nasty fouls they have committed at the tournament so far.
QF 3 (early): Argentina vs Belgium
QF 4 (late): Netherlands vs Costa Rica
ARG vs BEL could well be a snoozer given both teams' failure to meet expectations so far. Really hope I'm wrong. Don't really expect CRC to have enough to roll NED over, but the game should be entertaining whatever happens.
When I say World, you say Cup. World...
