  1. It was a good game, we lost but we could have won too. We were just unlucky. 2014, we won’t be a surprise then.

    • LOOSE CANNON

      Not having Mueller was a real bad break. Everything was tilted towards Podolski and that was too easy for Spain to sniff out. Ballack was a huge loss even before tournament; would have been nice to have Ballack and Schweinsteiger in central midfield for semi-final…

      …still lots of positives for Germany to get out of this World Cup. Particularly with the loss of Ballack ahead of time and questions about where goals would come from.

      I think Manuel Neuer really stepped up in goal and has a bright future. Mehmet Oezil is a talent. Sami Khedira can be a rock. Thomas Mueller is the great new emergence, of course, on the national team scene.

      Germany can be proud of 3rd in South Africa, I think.
