"There's precious little left of that traditional Brazilian style of soccer, that artistic style of playing that we all know so well. For sure, Brazil still have good technical players. But they're playing more robustly than any other team here and they have been trying to break up their opponent's attack that way."

-- Germany coach Joachim Loew, who said he hopes Tuesday's semifinal referee, Mexico's Marco Rodríguez, takes a tough stance against attempts to disrupt the flow of the game. Brazil has been whistled for 96 fouls and received 10 yellow cards in its first five games; Germany, 57 fouls and four yellow cards. (Reuters)

    This is so true. The Brazilian are playing like the old Germany and nobody knows this better than a German. And Brazil will have only Scolari to blame for his ultra-physical approach. For the sake of jogo boninto, Brazil can't not win this cup. Among the 4 teams that are left, only The Netherland plays like the old Brazil. Although I have little hope for them, but I wish they win the cup this time around. For the sake of the beautiful game. (Unless they degenerate like they did in the final against Spain in 2010)

    I know many people around the world (and specially in the CONCACAF region) were routing for the Cinderella story, and many Mexican fans would bring the controversial PK, but let not be any mistake that the Netherland were the best team in this cup overall. This is my opinion. They swept aside the world champions and deservedly beat Australia, Chile and Mexico. They dominated Costa Rica which played defensive all the game and resorted to a lot of technical fouls to disrupt the Dutch. Krul's theatrics shouldn't take away the fact that the Dutch played the most positive soccer in this cup.
