It's the day we've all been waiting for... today we'll learn who will get all the plaudits for best ceremony, is it going to be the disastrous Pitbull performance at the opening or whatever FIFA is throwing at us today?
So TAY what are your predictions for today's closing ceremony?
Football?! Pshhhh I won't bother talking about those two teams today, All I'm going to say is, I think today there's going to be an upset, Argentina are pumped up fro the occasion and who knows maybe the Messi-ah will wake up from his 31 day slumber. Actually Argentina showed determination, and for once worked as a team in their match against Netherlands, denying Robben the space, and time he requires to make a difference while on the pitch.
Now, about Germany... Did they peak too early? Or does the Mannschaft has more goals left to score in the tournament? I certainly hope not, cause they are going that determination to beat Mascherano. Can Thomas Müller and Co. do it again?
Here's Nat Coombs from British newspaper The Guardian, talking about 10 things to look for on the Grand Final (I mean after all... he has a team of journalists and writers supplying his column with news and analysis).
Today's Grand Final (or Which team is getting it's muddy hands on the cup?):
- 3:00 PM EST: Germany vs Argentina @ Estádio Maracanã, Rio de Janeiro.
Germany 3 - 1 Argentina
To make things a bit more interesting... a point will be awarded to those who get the results right and two extra points for each correct scoreline. Feeling lucky? Then make a bold prediction and win an extra point for each one you get right.
So TAY what are your predictions for today's matches?
