Deutschland vs. Portugal


Recommended Posts

I had a nail-biting evening...

Those last 10 minutes where sick :D

I'm happy with Germany's win but they played better the last 2 years... I don't know what happened today, perhaps they where too nervous... Germany will do better against the Netherlands since they will be calmed and it's the same type of game...

Yeah, it was a strange match. I had hoped the German team would have played like they did it in South Africa and in the last two years - otherwise the team wouldn't have a chance to win the EURO

I am just glad about the result...

Surprisingly, the German defence now suddenly is pretty strong while the German offence is suddenly pretty weak. Funny. But since this team has such a huge potential in the offence, I expect a significant improvement in the next matches.

Anyway, that was certainly not a match for "football gourmets" -- it was largely dull and ineffective. But at least Germany has three points now -- it would have been very bad if they had lost that match. They now have a psychological advantage for the match against the Netherlands. But it will be a very tough match nevertheless.

Well Portugal deserved better but if there is country i'm gonna forgive to be a little lucky it's Germany.

They always play and go forward and i really feel that for the last six years the only thing they didn't have was a bit of luck so i'm gonna be cool with them this time!

But if the defense and the middflieders don't improve a lot after this it's gonna be very difficult for the Germans to go very far

Germany doesn't always has a perfect tournament, remember how do Germany played against Serbia in the 2010 WC... Really bad!! And then they defeated England and Argentina... So I think they can really improve their game against the Netherlands...

Remember it also exists the "Champion's Luck" (La suerte del campeón) so Germany i always gonna be Germany, they an go far but they will need to be a more offensive team too.

I disagree about Klose (mind you I am a Bayern fan, so naturally have a bias for Gomez). The only change I would like to see is Andrea Shurrle instead of Podolski.

And yes it is nice to see a far more traditional German defense.
