Here we go then. Spain versus Germany. I do fancy Spain to win, but those Germans just don't quit.

The weird thing is I know that Germans don't rate their team and haven't for a while. They are as insecure as us, but... they make it! :x

Yeah, ceremony was weird. Often are.

Some nice chances at each end. Nearly an own goal by Germany too!
Torres has just been kicked. Anything from the freekick?..... nope.

Really good first half. Germany are looking dodgy, although have had a few moments too. Can see Spain getting going, but if they don't take another chance, all the Germans need is one set piece.....

Really good first half for me :wink: Spain are looking good deserve the lead and to win the trophy so far.

The germans are really poor worse than against turkey, but they are still cheating so who knows what will happen. It was funny with ballack when he bust his head off-on-off-on :lol:

Onward to the second half :)

Seriously, how many chances are Spain going to get and not take?
I'm sensing a cock up and equaliser.

Game over. Well done Spain. Glad they won (although not as much as Ryu I'm sure!)

I was talking to a german friend at the time. She isn't a football fan so isn't bothered, but when it was over she said:
we always seem so close and yet so far away

"TRY BEING ENGLISH!!!" I was forced to reply. :lol:

But surprised Germany did that well. Even they don't rate their own team. Poor Ballack, 3 finals, 3 defeats. tee hee

The best team won. Spain outplayed Germany and deserved the win.

I'm delighted that Fernando Torres scored the winner. He's a brilliant footballer and I'm a fan of his. :)
