I rarely watch soccer, unless it's World Cup. Then I get into it.

Great game by the Pig Riser!! He's going to have to step his game up the rest of the way with Ballack out.

Germany as a team is very methodical, they don't necessarily have the individual talent but they play together like a well-oiled machine. Australia really isn't very good though, the Serbia game on Friday should be a good indication of how good Germany really is.

well you know theres an saying in football that started in the 70s that says (dont know if the translation will get the message correctly):

"football is a sport where you play 11 against 11 and germany always wins"

basically, means that germany has always played an efficient, smart and physical style wich has led them to win a lot but in most cases without playing a very enjoyable to watch football, beating some legendary team that played awesome but fell short. Kinda like the italians but without the luck and dirty antics.

Ah.

I don't know enough about the sport of history to know that.

I'm German, so I cheer for Germany.

Germany has about 4 Turks on the team, you should be a fan

I have to say that in the last few years this German team has started to grow on me. But I can't get into the whole nationalist angle. I'd just as soon see an up and coming team beat them down the line. That's my whole angle - look for the underdog to do something good.

Germany did win 4-0, but it was against australia as Belsius pointed out LOL. And 2 of the goals came after it was 10men vs 11.

Hmmm. I guess your better off with "luck and dirty antics" because Germany never beat Italy in International play
