Just under a month ago, 32 teams started out on a path to join the elite club of World Cup Champions. Two teams remain in pursuit of that goal, but both nations – Germany and Argentina – have multiple titles to their credit. Germany reached the Final with the most unpredictable of performances, piling goal after goal on a stunned Brazilian team en route to a 7-1 thrashing. The Argentinian team, meanwhile, snuck by a powerful Dutch side by the slimmest of margins: waiting out 120 minutes of cautious, scoreless play and settling things in penalty kicks. So, with the Final looming on the horizon, which nation do you like to capture its first title in over two decades? Germany started their campaign in Brazil with authority, drubbing Portugal 4-0 in their group stage opening and providing the margin of victory that would inevitably send Cristiano Ronaldo and his compatriots home before the knockout stage. A 2-2 draw to Ghana would provide the only blemish on Germanys record thus far but the team would clinch the top of Group G by edging out former coach and World Cup hero Jurgen Klinsmann and his American side 1-0 in their opening round finale. The Algerians would give Germany a scare in the round of 16, forcing extra time before Andre Schurrle and Mesut Ozil put away what would stand as a 2-1 victory. They would then ride an early header from defender Mats Hummels past a high-scoring French side in the quarters to set up their drubbing of the host Brazilians in the semis. Along the way the Germans have seen one man write his name in the annals of World Cup history and another serve notice that he may be next in line. Miroslav Kloses mark in the semifinal thrashing put him in sole possession of the all-time World Cup goal scoring record, one ahead of Brazilian great Ronaldo with 16. Not to be outdone, however, is 24-year-old Bayern Munich striker Thomas Müller. After earning a share of the Golden Boot in South Africa with five goals, Müller has piled on another five and enters the Final one shy of an unprecedented second straight. Argentinas performance has been a study in doing just enough to win. Though they have won all six of their contests in Brazil, they have done so by just a single goal in each match. The team emerged from a group devoid of titanic opposition, edging out Bosnia and Herzegovina in part thanks to a third-minute own-goal and Iran thanks to an unforgettable Lionel Messi free kick in second half stoppage-time. With the group hanging in the balance, the Argentines went back and forth with Nigeria in the opening round finale, eventually outlasting their African opposition in a 3-2 victory. In the knockout round, however, the Argentinians have used lone goals to get past highly-ranked European opposition. Switzerland – the top seed in Group E entering the tournament – held them scoreless through nearly two hours before Angel di Maria broke through in the 188th minute. Against Belgium it was the opposite, with Gonzalo Higuain finding the back of the net eight minutes in to provide the matchs lone goal. The question begs whether the team can find the firepower to match the German machine. Messi enters the Final tied for third in the competition with four goals and all eyes will be on the Little Magician to see if he can step up and add to his “Best Player in the World” argument when it matters most for his country. A double-sided historical note to help you make up your mind: Germany has lost just once to Argentina at the World Cup and has ended Argentinas tournament at each of the last two. However, Germanys one loss came in the 1986 Final, the last time the nation was crowned World Champions. So, who do you like? Will the balanced German attack find its way through the Argentine defence to earn a first World title as a unified nation? Or, will Messi heed Diego Maradonas claims as the future of Argentinian football and continue the trend of European World Cup futility in the Americas? As always, its Your! Call.

A couple lucky hops always help, too. Gee beat Washington for the third time this season and the New York Mets scored the go-ahead run when third baseman Ryan Zimmerman and shortstop Ian Desmond made errors on the same strange play for a 5-1 win Saturday. "Things kind of bounced my way," Gee said. Daniel Murphy delivered three hits and first baseman Josh Satin started a pair of nifty double plays as the Mets won for the ninth time in 14 games. The Nationals fell back to .500, losing to the team with the worst home record in the majors. Gee (6-7) gave up one run in six innings, working around six hits and three walks. The right-hander has excelled against Washington, permitting just two runs in 18 2-3 innings this year while accounting for half of his win total. Gee is 6-1 lifetime against the Nationals -- he hasnt beaten any other opponent more than three times. "Im not really sure what it is," he said. "I try to keep them off-balance." Gee also got a nice break in the first. After Zimmerman walked with two outs, Adam LaRoche followed with a long double that bounced over the right-field fence. Had the ball hit the wall and stayed in play, Zimmerman couldve scored. Instead, Zimmerman had to stop at third base and Jayson Werth struck out to end the threat. Gee reported no problem from forearm trouble thats come and gone all season. Manager Terry Collins said the Mets might rejigger their rotation around the All-Star break to give him more time in-betweeb starts. Taylor Jordan (0-1) lasted 4 1-3 innings in his big league debut. He was promoted from Double-A earlier in the day and gave up three runs, although a pair of errors by Zimmerman helped make two of them unearned. "He pitched his butt off, and we didnt help him out much," Desmond said. It was 1-all in the fifth when Murphy led off with a single and took second on a groundout. Marlon Byrd followed with a hard bouncer that handcuffed Zimmerman and deflected in the air, where Desmond alertly caught the ball with his bare hand on the edge of the outfield grass. But Desmond tried an off-balance throw to get Murphy at third, and he skipped an awkward toss. The ball hit Murphy in the hip and skittered away, and he hustled home andd slid in ahead of Zimmermans throw.dddddddddddd Kirk Nieuwenhuis added a sacrifice fly for a 3-1 lead. "When I saw the ball go off Zimmerman, I was thinking about scoring," Murphy said. "Then I saw Desi get it, and I had to make sure he didnt drop one on the bag and get me out. Once it got loose, I took off." A day earlier, Desmond made a bad throw to first that stopped his 59-game errorless string. This time, he threw behind the runner. "I have been playing aggressive, trying to backdoor guys like that," Desmond said. "I think that one just didnt work out. If it doesnt hit his body, the ball just sits there and nothing happens." Eric Young Jr. had a sacrifice fly, and Byrd hit an RBI single in the sixth. Carlos Torres pitched two innings, and LaTroy Hawkins went the ninth to close it out for the Mets, a day after their bullpen blew a late 4-1 lead for starter Matt Harvey. The 24-year-old Jordan earned his promotion after going a combined 9-1 with a 1.00 ERA in Double-A and Class A this year. Murphy singled with two outs in the third for the Mets first hits. Jordan gave up five hits, walked two, hit a batter and struck out one. He also collected a couple of souvenirs -- the ball for fanning Gee for his first strikeout, and another ball after he lined a single up the middle for his first big league hit. Jordan hit 95 mph on the stadium radar gun, featuring a delivery where he whips the ball behind his back and then slings it to the plate. The right-hander is in the rotation while struggling Dan Haren is on the disabled list, and will soon be back at Citi Field -- hes been picked the represent the Nationals in the All-Star Futures game in two weeks. NOTES: Washington tied a season high with three errors. ... Nationals LHP Ross Detwiler had stiffness in his lower back after Friday nights start. He was on the disabled list earlier this season for a strain in his back. Manager Davey Johnson says that if Detwiler cant make his next start, RHP Ross Ohlendorf will fill in. ...
