WC Days 20-21 (on to the Final 4!)

After 20 days and 62 games, here are the matchups for the World Cup semifinals.

Germany vs. Spain
Netherlands vs. Uruguay

Brazil and Argentina, my two picks for the finals, were eliminated yesterday and today, which changed the outlook from a possible all-South American final to a probable all-European one. The only South American team remaining is Uruguay, the one that no one probably picked to go this far.

The semifinal between Spain and Germany is a rematch of the 2008 Euro Final, and I'm hoping for Spain to pull it out again. An all European final between Spain and Holland would be a good one to watch. The semis are this week (Tue and Wed) and the finals are next Sunday.
