Hooray for the Losers!

So far this World Cup, just about every team I root for has lost, especially since the Round of 16 started.

Korea lost to Uruguay. USA lost to Ghana. Ghana lost to Uruguay.

Slovakia lost to Netherlands. Chile lost to Brazil. Brazil lost to Netherlands.

Mexico lost to Argentina. England lost to Germany. Argentina lost to Germany.

The only game so far in the single-elimination portion that went as I wanted was Paraguay over Japan. But then Portual lost to Spain and Paraguay lost to Spain.

Based upon this pattern, the final victor will be Netherlands, beating Spain in the final.
