Following the heavy defeat against Germany and even more depressing third-place play-off defeat against Holland, Luiz Felipe Scolari’s future as Brazil coach is looking very uncertain. Obviously Brazil fans will want answers for the shaming that occurred on home soil, and with Scolari in the firing line, the question on everyone's mind now is, what next for Scolari?

With the World Cup Final upon us we can look forward to an exciting evening of football, hopefully with it's fair share of goal action! With that in mind we thought we would take a look back at some of the best goals and most memorable moments in World Cup Final matches.

It’s been a fantastic World Cup with thrilling matches, smashing goals and fantastic individual performances. With only two games left to go we thought we’d give you our team of the World Cup so far:

GK: Keylor Navas

The match we’ve all been waiting for is finally here. Germany and Argentina battle it out on Sunday in the World Cup Final. Who will take it all this weekend and return home with that all important trophy in hand?

The World Cup returns to our screens again on Saturday as Brazil play Holland in the third-place play-off match – will Brazil be able to redeem themselves after that match against Germany?

The Netherlands take on Argentina in today’s second semi-final in what should be a fascinating match-up between two of the biggest sides in world football.

During the total German domination of Brazil last night, in which we saw 7 individually awesome goals, there were just a couple of records broken...

With the World Cup Semi-Finals on the horizon we thought we’d take a look at some memorable moments from the past with six of the best World Cup Semi-Finals ever.

Brazil take on Germany in the first World Cup Semi-Final tomorrow kicking-off at 9pm sharp! Without their star striker will Brazil's World Cup campaign be Ney-Mar? (Ney more... no more... get it?)

Holland v Costa Rica

Costa Rica have had a fairytale World Cup and surprised many (all) of us with how far they’ve progressed but can they beat the South Africa 2010 finalists and make it to the semis?

They are arguably two of the World Cup’s biggest disappointments so far in terms of performance and general play, given the high expectations they had at the beginning of the tournament.

The pressure on the two World Cup Quarter-Finalists tonight is worlds apart. 

As special as this World Cup has so far been, the quarter-finals promise to be extraordinary.

The World Cup has so far been amazing.

More than any of us could have hoped for. The quality has been fantastic, and, for a change all the stars (minus an injured Ronaldo) have shown up and performed.

The round of the last 16 takes place tonight and a World Cup quarter final awaits either Argentina or Switzerland.

The final game of the last 16 takes place tonight and either Belgium or the USA will be going home, while a place in the World Cup quarter final awaits the other.

Despite Algeria being a dominant force in African football in recent years, no one expected them to get out of their group to reach the World Cup last 16.

The winner of this game will most likely face Germany in the quarter final of the World Cup.

Costa Rica v Greece

At the beginning of this World Cup, Greece and Costa Rica had been written off as group stage casualties but now both teams are through to the round of 16 and are eyeing up a quarter-final spot.

The last 16 is here, and many people believe this is when the World Cup really begins.
