With a rampant Germany awaiting in the final, Argentina and the Netherlands face selection dilemmas going into their World Cup second semi-final today in Sao Paulo at 9pm.

The match, will be a clash of the brilliance of Lional Messi and Arjen Robben. After Germany’s 7-1 evisceration of Brazil, it will also be a new pressure cooker showdown between Europe and South America.



But Holland’s captain and lead striker Robin van Persie is a doubt due to a stomach problem, while Argentina must do without influential midfielder Angel di Maria due to a thigh strain.

While Messi is bidding to leave his mark on a World Cup after painful quarter-final exits at his first two tournaments, Robben is desperate to exorcise the ghosts of Holland’s 1-0 loss to Spain in the 2010 final.

Meanwhile  Louis van Gaal tells parents, "Let kids stay up and watch the match!" Please, can someone tell me what this man is up to or trying to relate to us, are we about to witness another massive destruction?


NETHERLANDS

3-4-3
Cillessen; Vlaar, De Vrij, Martins Indi; Kuyt, Wijnaldum, Sneijder, Blind; Robben, Van Persie, Depay.

ARGENTINA

4-3-3
Romero; Zabaleta, Demichelis, Garay, Rojo; M. Rodriguez, Gago, Biglia; Messi, Aguero, Higuain.

What are your expectations for tonight's game?

Louis Van Gaal blasts FIFA for continuing to play World Cup third-place game. SAO PAULO – Furious Netherlands head coach Louis Van Gaal blasted FIFA for its refusal to scrap the World Cup's third-place consolation game and insisted the controversial playoff should be consigned to history. Van Gaal's Dutch side will be forced to play host nation Brazil in Brasilia on Saturday after losing its semifinal to Argentina in a heart-stopping penalty shootout at Arena de Sao Paulo on Wednesday night.

The coach, who takes over English Premier League team Manchester United at the end of the tournament, claimed he has urged soccer's hierarchy to abandon the game for more than a decade, to no avail. I think that this match should never be played," said Van Gaal less than an hour after his team's 0-0 tie and subsequent 4-2 loss on penalties. "I have been saying this for the past 10 years. "We will just have to play the game but it is unfair. We will have one day less to recover and that's not fair play. But the worst thing is, I believe, there is a chance that you lose twice in a row in a tournament in which you've played so marvelously well. You go home as a 'loser' because possibly you've lost the last two matches.
