FOOTBALL: WORLD CUP SPECIAL: THE GREATEST SHOWDOWN ON EARTH; Brazil Take on Germany for the First Time in World Cup History, Giving Fans the Chance to Witness Some Classic Battle. Here SPORTS RECORD Looks at the Key Battles Which Will Decide Whether the Famous Trophy Is Bound for Europe or South America


RIVALDO v METZELDER

At 21 years old, Christoph Metzelder's assured performances have been all the more astounding from a player who only made his international debut 10 months ago.

The Borussia Dortmund centre-back, right, stepped in to plug the gap left by the injured Jens Nowotny, and has been one of the finds of the tournament. But former FIFA World Player of the Year Rivaldo, far right, has also hit top form during the past month. He is just one goal behind Ronaldo in the race for the Golden Shoe and he will be keen not to let his team-mate outshine him.

LUCIO v KLOSE

Lucio and Miroslav Klose, far left, will already be familiar to each other as the Brazilian, left, plays in Germany with Bayer Leverkusen.

The Kaiserslautern striker, though, failed to score when the two met in the Bundesliga last year.

After a blistering start to the tournament with five goals in the group stages, the goals have dried up for Klose.

But his dogged determination could be just the thing to unsettle Lucio, who will not want to be reminded that it was his blunder which let in Michael Owen to score.

RONALDO v KAHN

The World Cup's top scorer against arguably the world's best goalkeeper.

Ronaldo, left, has scored six goals in six games, and he will be looking to be the first player since Poland's Grzegorz Lato to hit the magnificent seven mark during the tournament.
