Props to Mexico for making this much more of a game than I anticipated. All CONCACAF teams are now eliminated, which should surprise no one after the US crashed and burned. Since this game went to overtime, I’m now picking Germany to top Argentina in the next round. I like Argentina a lot, but I think they’ll be too dead-legged from this game—especially since there’s no golden goal rule any more—to compete for a full 90 minutes against the home team.

On the whole this was a good game, but it got very sloppy as players tired. Glad it didn’t go to PKs, and I do think the better team won.
