On Sunday, two soccer powerhouses will collide in an effort to determine who the best team in the world truly is. Here’s my predictions on what will transpire on the pitch on that day:
Germany over Argentina: Argentina unfortunately has one less day of rest than the Germans, and it certainly doesn’t help that it took penalty kicks to fend off the Dutch in the semifinals. While Germany’s performance against Brazil is without a doubt an outlier for the ages, they haven’t played poorly at all throughout this tournament. On the other hand, Argentina has had to skate around disaster multiple times, and this just may be where it comes to an end, because they will need it all to raise the trophy.
