Default World Cup -- Semi Finals: Brazil vs Germany (July 8th)

Sucks that we won't get to see Neymar, Thiago Silva, Ilkay Guendogan, and Marco Reus.

Brazil have to use that rough style again and make it a Stoke vs Arsenal type of game.

Just kick the German players and get physical. They're soft. Ozil, Gotze, Schweinsteiger etc. they cant cope with it. This isnt the Germany of old.

I fancy Brazil's chances if they can make the game ugly and physical.

It really does suck that this won't be a full strength match. I really wanted Germany to beat Brazil straight up.

Oh well, i hope they pull it off and that they get a favorable opponent for the Final. Oh, and Muller needs to score in one of the last two games to stay on pace for breaking Ronaldo's record of 15 WC goals.

woah bro already with the excuses? gundogan? the dude hasnt played in ages.. might as well add ronaldinho and kaka

anyway scolari wouldnt park the bus but if this brazilian team was coached by mourinho they would win the WC even without neymar and silva.. he has the chelski work horses in oscar, ramires and willian, he has the physical specimen in hulk who will be his drogba, he has his essien in gustavo and or fernandinho, he has his cashley in marcelo ( who absolutely took care of cuadrado tonight) and had 3 players in the defense that have played anti-football in the past -cesar, luiz and maicon

but scolari is the coach and this is selecao that has a fat reputation

What? Scolari is known as a defensive manager.

Probably even more defensive than Mourinho himself

His Brazil side in 2002 won the World Cup with the same tactics. Think they only conceded 2 goals in that whole tournament iirc.

If Loew switches back to our normal playing style I see a rout incoming. Either way, I see a fat chance that Brazil beats us.

Just preparing for people who are going to blame Germany's victory on Brazil's injuries. Plus, I would much rather see two full strength teams. And those are some very exciting players missing. Brazil's offense is going to be a bigger joke without Neymar than Germany's offense so far.

Sucks cause Germany would have trounced them either way.

Only teams to concede 2 goals in a whole tournament were 1998 France, 2006 Italy, and 2010 Spain. Reason I know this is my friend and I were talking about it yesterday.
