What a weekend in sports!!!


The semi-finals are now set with 4 teams moving on.

Argentina dominated the first half against Belgium and scored a goal within the first 8 minutes. Belgium finally showed some spark in the second half but couldn’t contain Lionel Messi and Ángel di María and lost an opportunity in overtime to tie it up. Argentina 1, Belgium 0.

Costa Rica, the Cinderella team of the tournament almost made it past Netherlands but in a dramatic shootout, the Netherland’s substitute goalkeeper, Tim Krul,  made two dramatic saves to give his team the advantage and a spot in the semi’s.

In other World Cup news, Germany secured a semi-final berth over France with a 1-0 victory and home team, Brazil bested Columbia 2-1  in an exciting matchup. The excitement was put on hold, however, for their concern for star player, Neymar who was carried off the field in a stretcher due to a back injury.

It’s now Brazil vs Germany (Tuesday 4:00 est)  and Netherlands vs Argentina (Wednesday, 4:00 est)
