Speacial Edition: World Cup Semis Preview

Uruguay vs. Netherlands
After knocking off the all-star of the soccer world in Brazil, Netherlands looks to continue their run against Uruguay. Uruguay have one two World Cups and they look for their third but they need super striker Diego Forlan to play like he did when they beat Ghana in the quarterfinals. The Dutch are led by midfielder Arjen Robben who is finally healthy and playing like it. Robin Van Persie is another option on offense. Both teams are playing great but the Netherlands has more momentum and more talent. Netherlands win, 1-0.
Spain vs. Germany
At the start of the World Cup I like many had Spain making the final only to lose to Brazil. Now that the Brazilians are done Spain looks like they are the favorite. But, the Germans are on fire. They shook out Wayne Rooney's England club, 4-1 and then smoked Lionel Messi and Argentina, 4-0. They have guys like Miroslav Klose (1 behind Ronaldo in goals scored in World Cup) and Boran Schwienstieger. They will miss Thomas Mueller though who had penalty problems. Spain is still loaded as David Villa has had a dream of a World Cup and they still have Fernando Torres. Teams tie at the end of regulation but Spain squeaks by in penalty kicks.
