This is it folks. It all comes down to this weekend.

With only the third-place match and the World Cup final to go, a month-long soccer extravaganza has almost come to end.

Whip those tears away. Don’t worry, the Premier League season is just around the corner. Anyway while we can still put our necks on the line, PST’s writers are predicting the outcome of the third-place match and the World Cup final which take place on Saturday and Sunday respectively.

Brazil face the Netherlands in Brasilia on Saturday for the third-place gong and decide who gets $22 million in prize money… instead of $20 million. In the final on Sunday at the Maracana, Germany and Argentina square off for the third WC final in history to try and become Champions of the World.

Here’s the thoughts of the PST crew ahead of what promised to be a fitting finale to a sumptuous tournament of top-notch soccer. Bring on the last hurrah!

    Wow, (most of) you all learned NOTHING from the 7-1 game.

      P.s. Germany is going to win 4-0.

    Outstanding prognostication on the third place match by the “experts”.

    My prediction is Germany 1-0, but the only thing that would surprise me would be Argentina winning by more than one.

    Germany 6-1
