Yes, Germany start as favorites. They have certainly been playing some good football.
But I still want Argentina to win World Cup 2014 in Brazil. It is at the Maracana. And Messi needs to win this.
He will need to show some brilliant touches. More than the flashes he has displayed intermittently.
And no one can deny that his team have reached the finally in huge parts due to his contributions. Along with that of his other team mates. But he might be the decisive factor in what could possibly be a tight match.
Good luck Argentina.
