World Cup 2014 Open Thread: Argentina v Belgium, Netherlands v Costa Rica

It is the final day with two World Cup soccer matches and you have rooting interests in both.

The dark horse that struggled against America has a chance to upset a near home country as Belgium takes on Argentina. I'm the type of guy that wants the team that knocked my team to win the tournament so let's go Red Devils or something. PREVIEW


The Netherlands have looked great during the tournament. A varied offense, a decent defense and more than one color! There will be an entire confederation against them though as this is CONCACAF's last chance with Costa Rica still alive. The upstart ticos have little chance at victory, but that's been true for the whole World Cup. If they do get that upset it would help the region get a bit more respect and maybe even the best team get seeded in 2018. Also there are MLS players in red, white and blue! PREVIEW.
