Good call, Nick - although I still think Germany will be too strong all over the pitch.
Fun fact time: Germany have won nine of their last 11 World Cup matches, and have kept a clean sheet in the last seven of nine.
With those lineups, I've got to back Germany - although I went for Colombia in their last game, so I may well be wrong again!
Azeus, you're back now - that's the important thing for us all.
Less than one hour till kick-off!
Boston, welcome once again! You make a good point that Tim Vickery also elaborated on - a team can't expect to come through clashes like that unscathed if they press from the off.
