“Even if they get knocked out, they are still the most impressive team in the tournament”

I said it before the Spain Germany match while talking with a mate, and I still think it.

Some might now say – Oh noes, Australia, England and Argentina were tactically naive / had tactical problems – Germany weren’t that good!

Don’t care – you can only play what is put in front of you.  Even their defeats were positive.  A man down and they made so many good chances against Serbia.  A loss to a finally awake Spain, who controlled the match, but who had to win it with a single header from a set play.

And after losing, they carried themselves with some dignity.

I have always had a preference for new winners, but I was hoping that Germany would go all the way.  I now think that my preference for new winners was a silly thing anyway – their last win was 1990?  Some of their players weren’t even out of their diapers yet.
