    Agree with Frtizl - Ozil was MIA. Gomez is class he fought to make something happen all game and did - must give him his due. Germans are in for a rude awakening if they continue to play like that - did not look at all dominant. I am still not sure Bastion is as good as everyone wants him to be. He looks the part but sometimes he touches the ball and the music stops.

    That's cruel..

    To be fair , none of the players was exceptional.

    I would say Hummels was, or close enough. Did an excellent job marshaling the defense.

    Germany was solid at the back. Neuer was quite good - but also quite lucky.

    postiga and badstuber could both be booked red without much complaining. they can thank hummels a lot, if not all.

    The defense worked well to contain Nani and Ronaldo but the defensive mindset of Bento helped them on that particular matter..

    No starting striker for Spain? Walking the ball into goal?

    I've seen my fair share. Their diving and theatrics are a shambles.

    Re Bebe, why not? Had he hit the ground running at Man U he'd be a prime striker. Granted he has shown he's not ready but that is hindsight.

    Baros? Was one of the worst purchases ever by Houllier. What a shit, was never more than a poor mans Morientes.



    Havent had a bonafide striker since prly Eusebio. Before that fool Gomes was a guy named Pinto that never did shit either. I saw him on the bench as an assistant. Get that fuck out of there. Portugal are famous for their center halves and midfielders.




    What game were you watching bro? Portugal lack cutting edge up front. Nobody takes Postiga seriously so they gang up on Nani and Ronaldo. There was good interplay leading towards goal but no real threat to worry anyone.

    Ozil? Are you crazy? The guy hardly touched the ball. You dont know shit about football, do you?



    See my comment above. Nani and Ronaldo were crowded because Postiga is no threat. I will supplement by saying that nobody from central midfield was very threatening either. Its not that hard to contain 2 great players in this instance. Ronaldo gets tons of operating space at Madrid because there are multiple threats.
