Germany vs Italy

Wow. What an entertaining match. It was nice to see *for once* both teams play actual attacking football and for the Italians not to overact and cheat their way to victory.

Two goals in the dying seconds of Extra Time too! Glad it didn't go to penalties but I am (and I never thought I'd ever say this) sad that Germany didn't make it through to the Final (given the choice of them of Italy). It seems that all the teams I'm hoping to win are doing exactly the opposite at present (apartf rom in the France Brazil match). Am hoping for France to beat Portugal tomorrow although with my earlier logic maybe I should hope for a Portugal win if I'm to see France in the final on Sunday? :p

Germany were lucky to get as far as they did so I'm not in the least surprised (unlike millions of fans, it seems) but I'm very glad they lost fair and yjr better team won.

I was rather hoping that Germany would win the World Cup, if for no other reason than it would completely screw up the favourite chant of England fans. "Two world wars and no world cups on aggregate' doesn't scan anything like as well.

I don't think it would have made much of a difference to the chant. They already lead us 3-1 on World Cup aggregate, and I don't see anyone chanting "Two world wars and minus two world cups on aggregate."
