Instead of an Oranje rout, it was more like orange juice.

The Straits Times' hamster duo Tiki and Taka are drowning their sorrows in tiny pint glasses of the freshly squeezed beverage.

They were so close to getting this morning's clash between Argentina and Holland right, almost playing out a full-time draw at the Stadio Straits Times on Tuesday.

Instead, a last minute equaliser by the feisty "Taka-Messi" was denied because it came a split second after the final whistle, and "Tiki-van Persie" won it for Holland.

In this morning's game, the two teams were tied 0-0 at full time. Argentina went on to win 4-2 on penalties to earn a final spot against Germany.

The furry duo had gone on a four-match streak of spot-on predictions at full-time, and correctly predicted a German win against Brazil in the first semi-final tie.

So near, yet so far. Our clairvoyant duo have now made five out of seven correct predictions. So will Argentina or Germany come out tops in the final? Stay tuned.
