Germany's eyes are on the prize

The ESPN FC panel discuss Thomas Muller's ability to score goals, no matter how he gets it done.

RIO DE JANEIRO -- Maybe it was Toni Kroos who put it most succinctly and aptly after the surreal 7-1 pounding Germany inflicted on Brazil in the semifinal.

"You don't become world champion by winning the semifinal," he said.

And he's right. There is another game to play and, if you fall at that hurd...

Romero's redemption saves Argentina

Argentina's semifinal hero Sergio Romero thanks his manager Alejandro Sabella, and the opposition manager Louis van Gaal who helped him settle in Holland as a youngster.

SAO PAULO -- Two-hundred and twenty-seven minutes of league football. Plus half a dozen cup games. That's how much Sergio Romero played last season for Monaco.

And now he's the hero of a semifinal penalty shootout that leaves Argentina 90 minutes and 11 Germans (possibly up to 14) away from winning ...

Final push for Netherlands, Argentina

The ESPN FC World Cup Encore panel delve into the key player matchups between Argentina and Netherlands.

SAO PAULO -- You want to be world champion? You need to be good. And you need to be lucky. Or so good that you can overcome misfortune. Or so lucky that you can get away with being less than perfect.

Argentina and the Netherlands square off on Wednesday in Sao Paulo. Neither has proved to be the bes...

A shocking exit for Scolari and Brazil

Brazil head coach Luiz Felipe Scolari takes full blame for his side's shocking 7-1 defeat to Germany.

BELO HORIZONTE, Brazil -- Eventually, you run out of ideas.

At 1-0, the yellow-clad population of the Estadio Mineirao groaned. A bloody nose, yes. But stick some cotton in and suck it up.

At 2-0, there was incredulity. A young lady in the stands raised her hand, thumb in, digits extended over her o...

Marcotti: Setting the semifinal scene

ESPN FC's Robbie Earle gives his projected Brazilian lineup for their clash against Germany.

It took 28 years to see Al Pacino and Robert De Niro star in the same scene. When Pacino, the cop, and De Niro, the gangster, face off in the memorable diner scene in the 1995 classic "Heat," each accepts his role.

"You do what you do. I do what I do."

We had to wait 68 years -- since the 1934 Worl...

Previewing the World Cup semifinals

The ESPN FC crew recaps all the action from Saturday's quarterfinals and looks ahead to the World Cup semifinal matchups.

A World Cup that has provided so many surprises and veered so delightfully off script began its regression to the mean at the quarterfinal stage. Four games, no upsets and, perhaps tellingly, just five goals in total.

Was it a reminder that when the stakes get this high -- for all the intent an...
