The second semi-final was more subdued, a tactical battle between Argentina and Holland which went the distance with Argentina winning 4-2 on penalties after Maxi Rodriguez scoring the decisive penalty.
5. Toni Kroos – Brazil vs. GERMANY
This was turning into a rout, it came in a crazy 5 minutes for Germany who were attacking Brazil at will. Toni Kroos and Sami Khedira played a lovely one-two which split the Brazilian defence and Kroos had the easy work to tap home to make it 4-0.
