We went to the game on the train and it was packed full of Argentinian supporters. The were singing even though it was 5 hours before the game. They are the most passionate supporters I have ever seen. We got off the train a kilometre before the stadium so we had to walk with the packed crowd. We got to our seat 1 hour before the game started. The amount of singing throughout the game was incredible! The passion shown was amazing. Too bad the Australians can't do that... Watching great players like Messi, Van Persie and Robben live in a semi final of a World Cup is just unbelievable! You can't get much better than that except for of course the final between Germany and Argentina. The shoutout was on the side we were sitting which was good. I was going for Argentina so I was happy but the Brazilians... They were disgusted and sad. They felt like the world is ending with their rival going through as well as them getting trashed by Germany. I can't wait for the final between Germany and Argentina. The atmosphere will be amazing!! ~ ADRIAN

We we got on the train I could already fell the excitement from all the Argentina fans. When we went through the gates we looked across and we saw a group of Argentina fans cheering there hearts out! When the game started the atmosphere was amazing and when it went to penalty shoot out the crowd went mental! When Argentina scored the winning penalty everyone was cheering and screaming for excitement because they made it to the final! ~ ALEX

I've noticed there are a lot of Argentinians in the town wearing their team shirts, singing, cheering and mocking the Brazilians for losing 7-1 to the Germans. When we got to the train station there seemed to be a lot of people wearing orange shirts. A few were Dutch supporters but the majority of them were Brazilian supporting the Dutch. There is a fierce rivalry between Brazil and Argentina. During the game I noticed a lot of Brazilian were getting mad and frustrated because holland couldn't score, and as it turned out it was another dark moment for the Brazilians seeing Argentina go through to play Germany. It's going to be a fantastic atmosphere in the final game. Every Brazilian that will be present at the game will definitely be supporting Germany. I must say that the most fanatical and passionate supporters are definitely the Argentinians. ~ FRANK : viva Brazil
