Confederations Cup Semifinal Open Thread: Brazil vs Uruguay, Spain vs Italy

Claudio Villa

Bayern are still represented by Dante, Luiz Gustavo and Javi Martinez in the Confederations Cup. Join the discussion in the open thread.

The Confederations Cup is down to the semifinals of the competition now, and all three representatives from Bayern Munich are still involved in the competition. Dante and Luiz Gustavo continue with host Brazil as they face South American champion Uruguay in one semifinal. In the other match, Javi Martinez and World Champion (and European Champion) Spain will play Italy.

As anti-Brazil as I have been in recent weeks since they stole Dante and Gustavo away before the Pokal Final, I would love to see Brazil and Spain face each other in the final. That way, at least, we're guaranteed at least one Bayern guy winning a trophy.
