Holland v Argentina
Arena de Sao Paulo, Sao Paulo
Kick-off: 21.00 BST
 
  Team News Holland keeper Jasper Cillesen is expected to start despite being replaced, by Newcastle United's Tim Krul, ahead of the penalty shoot-out against Costa Rica in the quarter-finals.
But there is concern over the availabilityof Robin van Persie, who missed training on Tuesday with stomach problems.
Meanwhile, Ángel Di María is missing for Argentina with a thigh injury suffered in the quarter-final win over Belgium.
Sergio Agüero has a chance of being available following a leg muscle injury but the Manchester City forward may have to settle for a place on the bench.
Match Notes
Germany await the winners of this semi-final and after the 7-1 humiliation over Brazil on Tuesday, one wonders what is in store from this game.
Argentina won the World Cup in 1978, as hosts and in 1986, in Mexico City.
Holland, though, are the nearly men of the world game, having reached and lost three finals.
Having been beaten by West Germany in 1974, they reached the final again four years later and lost to the hosts.
Now the 2010 runners-up have the chance of revenge, having lost to Argentina in the final in 1978.
While Argentina have Lionel Messi, Holland have Robin van Persie, not to mention Arjen Robben, and the presence of those players should make for an intruiging clash, and one that is hard to call.
 
Stat of the game: Argentina's Lionel Messi has had 15 attempts at goal, two more than Holland's Robin van Persie.
 
Holland (Possible, 5-3-2): Cillesen; Kuyt, De Vrij, Vlaar, Indi, Depay; Wijnaldum, Sneijder, Blind; Robben, Van Persie.
Argentina (Possible, 4-2-3-1): Romero; Zabaleta, F Fernández, Garay, Rojo; E Perez, Mascherano; Palacio, Messi, Lavezzi; Higuaín.
Referee: Cuneyt Cakir (Turkey).
