2010 FIFA World Cup Expert Picks: Semifinals

Germany is quickly becoming an irresistible force that they haven't been since, let's say the 1940s. ("Balls of Fury," 2007)

The Final Four of the soccer world is known, and they’re all hungry for victory. Uruguay is representing all of South America now, but the Dutch will look to build on their upset of Brazil. The Germans have been on an absolute tear, and have some beef with Spain over the European Championships. But of course, anything can happen, so be sure to keep watching.

According to our staff, the Netherlands will definitely move through, and relatively quickly at that. The Germans should also win, but later in the game and not without a challenge from Spain. And if your name is towards the beginning or end of the alphabet, you’re more likely to disagree with the others. Interesting trend, eh?

As usual, picking a game winner and time of the winning goal (to within five minutes) is worth two points. Picking the timing of the winning goal to within fifteen minutes is worth one point instead. We’ve still got plenty of points on the table and the final round to go through, so check below for the latest picks and stay tuned later in the week for our exciting conclusion.
