    It'll be a Germany win on Tuesday. While Germany may have won ugly Brazil has won extremely lucky.

    That was a 'report' from 3 days ago. Didn't see much of it today. The only one who was sick was Hummels a few days ago. Today he scored.

    Though it may be Brazil's only chance.

    How is it that they call flops all the time, but nothing when a dude gets his back fractured by a knee?

    Sucks that Neymar is out.

    It really didn't look like a serious foul. I personally thought at first glance that Neymar once again just plays the 'oh I am dying game' .
    He must have hit him very awkward.

    Called it.

    It's funny how even with all the close matches, the best teams end up finding a way. There are very few true upsets in the World Cup.

    ESPN are saying Tim Howard produced the best football performance of all time? Oh America. What are we going to do about you *shakes head*

    Had Wondo not missed the net in stoppage time and Howard kept the shutout . . . I'd be inclined to consider it as one of the great World Cup goalkeeping performances.

    But yea that's a silly statement by ESPN.

    As good as he was in that game, I don't think Howard was the best or even second best goalkeeper in this World Cup - Keylor Navas was consistently spectacular, and Memo Ochoa was fantastic also.

    Feel pretty confident being one of the two people that said Germany was gonna win it all. Greasy has to be loving this.

    I was pretty sure that Germany would win, but I never saw something like this coming.

    Comes home after a long day of work watching beautiful women with their yellow/blue/green on and flags waving from cars.

    Takes a look at the score

    I do believe that if Brazil had Neymar and Silva the score would be much closer right now - probably something like 4-0.

    Give Germany a point, they take Brazil.

    In with the first inappropriate Germany joke.

    I mean I think everybody knew that Germany was the most talented team in this tournament . . . but could their possession style translate into enough goals to overcome the fast striking South American sides. Real Madrid exposed Bayern in the Champions League and I was worried that we could see some of that in this tournament.

    So much for that theory :lol:

    If Germany pushes this to 7-0 or 8-0 . . . the effect of a score like that would be as damaging as Brazil going out in the group stages. I honestly don't know what to expect over the next few days.

    All that talent in the midfield for Germany and they still have the best goalkeeper in the world. Just an embarrassment of riches to be honest.

    I mean it is already bad down there, and a World Cup win may have eased the tension for a little bit....but this...this is just gonna lead to worse things.
