Why are people writing "Brasil" but not "Deutschland"?
The modern trend is probably against the use of exonyms, but why are people focusing solely (or almost solely) on Brazil/Brasil?
Since this is an English language website, I propose we use "Brazil" until the use of "Brasil" in English becomes standard, if it ever does.

Anyway, people who are paying attention will notice that I correctly predicted all of the teams in the seminfinals.
Now it's a bit tougher, and we've got some complicating factors.
Home field is a big advantage, but the loss of Neymar seems to outweigh that, so I'm going with Germany.

Germany will win. Brazil had Luiz, Silva, Neymar, 8 mediocre players on the field, Willian on the bench, and no strategy I could see apart from playing foul.

Now they still have no strategy, Willian will play, but with Willian and Luiz, and no Silva and no Neymar, I guess it's looking worse then before. Unless they play like the first 30 minutes against Chile, and Germany plays like the first 30 minutes against Algeria, Brazil does not stand a chance I think.

tmrw, I think Argentina will win. maybe that is just hope though.

Germany is certainly looking strong, but so is Argentina.

I'm hopin' Brazil takes it--not only to show that Soccer is indeed a team sport, but also because I know what the cup means to the country.

Oscar and Fernandinho have not impressed.
Hulk has failed to deliver. Fred needs a new name.
Jo is their only hope, but against the Siegfried Line?

Deutschland 2. Brasil 0

i am also rooting for Brazil or Argentina. And then more for Brazil because now Neymar is out and they really have to work for each other to manage it.

If you go to Norway, you'll get used to uff-da-prices... at least at this time of the year. But the air, the views and the climbing is still free...

I hope Rossini's family is getting royalties for the Brasilian anthem.
At least the little kiddies know the words.

Fred is up top? WTF? Big mistake, put Jo in.

I expect Germany to win with all of their players being standard upper-tier players on the field. With Neymar out to injury there may be no chance, but if Brazil can energize, focus and make up for the missing force... They could make this a very exceptional and most memorable game.

This should be a great game.

Fred is up top? WTF? Big mistake, put Jo in.

 it is prudent. Experience may not be enough to beat the German back line... I agree it may not be the best case scenario, but its may be the best the coach had available to him.

Brasil are looking much better without Neymar as everyone seems to be working,
except on defense.

Well, it was fun for 15 minutes.

Too bad futbol doesn't have a mercy rule. This should be stopped.
