With a rampant Germany awaiting in the final, Argentina and the Netherlands face selection dilemmas going into their World Cup semifinal on Wednesday.
The match, starting in Sao Paulo at 0130 am IST, will be a clash of the brilliance of Lional Messi and Arjen Robben. After Germany's 7-1 evisceration of Brazil, it will also be a new pressure cooker showdown between Europe and South America.
But Holland's captain and lead striker Robin van Persie is a doubt due to a stomach problem, while Argentina must do without influential midfielder Angel di Maria due to a thigh strain. Dutch coach Louis van Gaal said it was touch-and-go whether Manchester United's van Persie would be able to line up at the Corinthians Arena.
