And on the eve of the 2014 cpl, a new presenting sponsor for the Saint Lucia souks.
Argentina's Sergio Romero saved two penalties in a 4-2 shoot-out win over the Netherlands to seal his side's first World Cup final place in 24 years after the first ever goalless semi-final at the end of extra time on Thursday morning.
Romero plunged low to his left to save the first penalty kick from defender Ron Vlaar and then made a superb stop from Wesley Sneijder as Argentina's jubilant fans went wild at the Corinthians arena.
The pressure of scoring the winning penalty kick fell to Argentina substitute Maxi Rodriguez who slotted high past Jasper Cillessen."
Two-time champion Argentina now travels to Rio de Janeiro for Monday morning's final against old rival Germany, who thrashed hosts Brazil 7-1 in the other semi-final in Belo Horizonte on Wednesday (AEST).
It will be a repeat of the 1986 and 1990 finals and the first time the same two teams will have faced each other three times in the title decider.
