Feel gutted for Messi because people (aka morons) will use this loss as ammo against him in the 'who is the best player' argument. As a side note, if anyone here, who is not a regular football watcher, enjoyed the World Cup you should check out the Champions League. It's way more exciting and is contested with all the top football clubs in Europe every single year.

Yep, I love the World Cup because of all the romance, history and the fact it is such a big event, but the European Cup is the highest quality football anywhere in the world.

Great game, just amazed it is 0-0.

But this is what top international football is like. It has been a good game though, and it's only getting better.

I mean I am amazed its 0-0 (not that it is anymore) because there have been so many good chances. Don't think it has got much to do with it being International football, just lots of players left their shooting boots at home.

A lot is at stake so most are just playing it safe, same can be said about MMA. Regular matches are usually fun with lots of punches and exciting play but when they're having a championship fight for the belt, it usually comes down to walking in circles around the opponent, trying to carefully jab the other and not create openings with not much punching at all.

Yeah, I don't think either team played that different to their normal selves. Argentina sat back and tried to hit on the break and the Germans looked to dominate possession and move the ball around quickly. I thought the final was pretty open to be honest, on another day it could have easily finished 3-2.

It was a good game. Argentina was clearly out of steam at the end and had crooked feet. Had it gone to penalties they would have lost anyway.

Yeah, I was surprised Argentina did as well as they did, their forward line was crocked. Aguero not fit,Di Maria out, Palacio useless and Messi just seemed knackered, not himself at all.

I thought it would be easier for Germany but if the Argies had taken some of the chances that had come along it could have been very different.

@leebmx: why surprised? Netherlands - Argentina went into overtime as well, it's quite similar.

I'm not surprised it has gone into extra-time. I am surprised that no-one managed to stick a chance away until right at the end when there were so many good chances. Higuain, Messi, Palacio and that's just Argentina.

This game is nothing like Netherlands-Argentina. That was sterile tactical battle with only one shot on goal the whole match. This has been an open attacking game with plenty of space and chances for both teams. The only similarity was the score at 90mins.

Well they were probably the best team overall. Just a shame Messi couldn't do it, love that guy.

Also Argentina will be gutted - the missed so many good chances.

I generally start on Hard and see how it goes. Normally I feel this is way most games are supposed to be experienced, it makes you actually have to think and make use of the full range of the tactics and options the game provides you with. A lot of the time on Normal you can get sloppy and get away with it. The Last of Us for example really benefited from being turned up to Hard, really made me think tactically.

Great game, just amazed it is 0-0. Seems like everyone has forgotten how to shoot. Really, really hope it doesn't go to penalties, its no way to settle a final - and Germany will win.

Shit! Khedira injured in the warm up. Could be big. Gotta feel sorry for him, that must be hard to take...

Detest the use of "meatheads" and "roidheads" just because they look like they go to the gym. Other than that it seems you did the right thing and were unlucky.

I think he can call people that beat the shit out of him for no reason whatever the fuck he likes :)

@nevermore666

Sorry you got bashed up, I got jumped by two idiots a few months ago. The physical pain goes - just don't let it play on your mind. Remember you did the right thing, you should be proud of yourself.
