Argentina win penalty shoot-out against Netherlands to   set-up final clash with Germany.

  Argentina overcame Holland in the semi-final, as it took a penalty shoot-out to determine the winner, as Argentina won 4-2.
Romero saved spot-kicks from Ron Vlaar and Wesley Sneijder, and it was Maxi Rodriguez spot-kick which sealed Argentina's victory.
  The two teams showed a glimpse of their attacking power but defence was always victorious.
Sneijder banged a volley two yards wide for the dutch 12 minutes in, when Vlaar brought down Enzo Perez, Messi fired his free-kick straight at Chillessen.
Arjen Robben also caused few problems for Argentina defence but produced no goal as extra time began.
  After extra-time, penalty left Argentina the jubilant side and Netherlands dissapointed.
Messi will live up to his dream to reach the cup final with the great atmosphere in Maracana, and it can make him win his first world cup for his national team.
  Argentina coach said:"I am very happy because we reached the final, and now we will see what we can do.We will give everything as usual, with humility, work and 100% effort.
