After a tight encounter, Argentina and the Netherlands remained at deadlock and even extra-time couldn't separate them. So penalties would decide who would go through to face Germany in the Final.
Having already performed impeccably during the game, Sergio Romero surpassed himself in the shoot-out, saving from Vlaar and Sneider. La Albiceleste are through to the World Cup Final and they have Sergio Romero to thank for it! An enormous bravo, and now all eyes turn to Sunday’s showpiece match between Argentina (who beat Germany in the Final of the 1986 Mundial) and Germany (who beat Argentina in the Final of Italia ’90)!
Spare a thought too for André Amitrano, AS Monaco’s goalkeeping coach who worked with Sergio Romero throughout the 2013-2014 season, and who was no doubt kicking every ball in sympathy with his pupil!
