Germany vs Argentina

Take that index finger from under your nose and stop the high kicking. The war's over and Hitler isn't playing. There is no ethical reason why Brits should not support Germany. But there is a good reason why we should support Argentina in this game (the Falklands war is over too, for those who didn't get the memo). While Germany drifts to the right with Merkel, Argentina under Kirchner has shifted left, withstanding pressure from the IMF to stabilise the economy. More popular with the voters than he is with global capitalists, Kirchner is one more South American leader who's got his priorities right.

Verdict: ¡Vamos Argentina!
