This weekend’s big game has to be Argentina v. Germany on Saturday morning. Raise your hand if you are sick to death of listening to the endless hype by pundits about Maradona coaching Argentina, seeing that Messi commercial from Adidas 10-12 times a day, and the overall worship that ESPN seems to have for anything having to do with Messi. Listening to the pundits talk, you almost think that they would rush to drink Messi’s bathwater, despite the fact he has yet to score a goal so far this tournament. 

Don’t get me wrong here. Unlike England, Argentina is most definitely a very talented and absolutely lethal team, as they proved to Mexico last weekend. Additionally, they are out for revenge after getting beaten by Germany in a penalty shoot-out in the 2006 World Cup. But this Germany team is so fast and disciplined, I think they definitely have the juice to send Argentina home. In fact, I would say that Germany is a dark horse candidate to win the Cup this year.

Germany 3, Argentina 2.
