Welcome To The Final Four
With the first semifinal match minutes away, the World is on edge. The first match will feature underdogs Uruguay up against the seemingly insurmountable Dutch team.
The quarterfinal match between Uruguay and Ghana was certainly dicey. In the 121st minute, a free kick by Pantsil of the Ghanaian team was put into the box, batted away, kicked away, and then smacked away from the goal line. Breakout striker Luis Suarez was to blame, receiving a red card, and getting suspended for today's match. Uruguay is looking to show the world that they deserve to be on the it's biggest stage.
The Netherlands has not lost any steam throughout this tournament. They are the only remaining team to have won every contest thrown their way. Today isn't going to be an exception. It will be a battle, with Uruguay's 4-4-2 formation up against a Dutch 4-5-1. I think we're looking at a final score of 2-1.
