Should be a good weekend of football.

There’s a lot of hype about the Brazil-Holland game, but I expect it to be a snoozefest. Both teams have played solid but boring football so far. Arjen Robben is the key man for Holland; if he starts, they have a shot at winning.

The real marquee match of the tournament will be Argentina-Germany on Saturday. Should be a goalfest. Personally, I am rooting for Germany to win the whole thing. They are playing like Holland used to play, and Holland are playing like Germany used to play.

My quarterfinal picks:

Uruguay 1 – 0 Ghana
Brazil 2 – 0 Netherlands
Germany 3 – 2 Argentina
Spain 3 – 0 Paraguay
