I never underestimate the Germans at World Cups. Even with what look likes a poor side they have been known to make finals.

Me neither, they just know how to win, whether they have a good squad or not, like in Euro 2008 when they looked poor in most games except when they knocked Portugal out, Spain outclassed them in the Final though or in the 2002 World Cup where they had the easiest run to a final i've ever seen but then the now fat Ronaldo taught 'em a lesson in the Final  :)

The last World Cup was great when Italy beat them in extra time, fantastic match.

nice vid Sambo, shame it doesn't have the commentary on the goals but still very good, i love the Maxi Rodriguez chest & volley against Mexico, i think it was in extra time, Argentina then got Germany in the next round if I remember right.

The Joe Cole volley against Sweden was a belter from the same tournament too, i remember shouting "HIT IT" in the pub when he controlled it & bang top corner, pub went mental  ;D
