In the semi-finals against The Netherlands on Wednesday, Argentina is going to play without forward Ángel di María, who is out with an injury to his femur, and certain Dutch players may also be absent in the crucial match.
The Netherlands beat Spain 5-1 in the first Group B match during the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil. It was a stunning upset in a rematch of the 2010 World Cup final that saw Spain take a 1-0 victory to be crowned football's champions.
Last night dozens of Dutch people were robbed in Salvador whilst watching the opening game between Brazil and Croatia on a field which was set-up as a special fan zone. During the game, the touristic centre of the city was packed. This situation was ideal for pick-pockets as wallets, cellphones and camera's were stolen from the fans.
