Well, maybe I am an expert — my final World Cup predictions

Spain over Netherlands — Here are my exact words from my pre-tournament prediction: “Two high-powered offenses, and perennial underachievers on the biggest stage, finally have the mix of talent and experience to make a deep run. Spain, the reigning European champion, outlasts the Dutch in an entertaining final.” Sounds good to me, I’ll say 2-1 for La Furia Roja after extra time.

Uruguay over Germany — I have to imagine it’s hard to take the field again after your World Cup dreams have been shattered. I think Germany will be more devastated than their opponents in sky blue, who definitely overachieved. I see this one going to PKs after a 1-1 draw after 120 minutes.
