PODOLSKI 100 attendance, deserves the award for goal number 44. And ‘the youngest in Europe to reach 100 international appearance. Stratospheric.
KROHN-DEHLI Second goal, but his great merit is to be able to soar among the German giants.
GOMEZ We have become accustomed too well, but at least it has proven to be human, especially during the action of the danish draw. But remember that he is not a defender.
KJAER It tips the forwards to play too much in the area.
p.s. I had to choose one of germany as worst and i decided to choose Supermario but i’m not really happy because i think that he is a great player, but in this match he doesn’t play so well.
GOMEZ He scores three goals in two matches, not bad for a player that scored his first goal in a international competition only a week before. He is always in the area, scaring the defense and the supporter of Netherlands, when he touches the ball he always seems to be able to score. Killer.
VAN PERSIE He is the only player of Netherlands that doesn’t give up, from the beginning to the end he tries to help his team, as only he can do: scoring, He manages to do it but hi team doesnt follow him.
PODOLSKI An other time seems to be far from his team, he is never on the center of the action.
ROBBEN He ends very bad his season with Bayern Munchen and starts in the same way his matches with his national team. He seems always too angry.
The most anticipated game of the group may be also of the entire Europe, (clashed in fact, the finalist of the world and the third) ends with a 2 to 1 on the German team, a result that seems to go too close to the Low and his players because of the huge differences between the two teams.
Germany proves once again to be a war machine that lines up in this game a brilliant trio: Hummels, Ozil, Gomez. And it’s from then that are born all the major actions, even with the input of Schweinsteiger in the action of the two goals. Hummels, Borussia Dortmund defender, just 23 years is already a leader when he stands, when the action starts and especially when pushes forward, brushing a goal in the second half. Ozil, the genie of Real Madrid and also that Germany is growing from game to game. And Gomez is the striker that everyone wants: no mistake in front of goal and just think about the goal.
Instead Netherlands seems to have been lost in this European championship: it is a disjointed, without energy and conviction, based solely on their own selfish individuality. Even the coach seems to have been distracted when he leaves Hunteelar on the bench, called the hunter not the case, and Van der Vaart, who when they enter, suddenly seem to wake the team.
In these situations the game can only proceed on one side with a total dominance, ,or so the first time, of Germany as early as the first time brushes the goal with Ozil. Germany goes to the 24 ‘with a goal from Mario that can pierce the defense with a perfect assist to Schweinsteiger. Doubling always arrives a few minutes later with Gomez, doubling deserved after Stekelenburg saves to Badstuber. The goal is another result of the company Schweinez, with the attacker throw in the door with a power kick the goal 2-0. In the second half the goal of Van Persie can reduce the gap between the two countries but the Netherlands is not in degrees of repetition and the German has as goalkeeper the magnet Neuer.
NEUER: he saves the result with a great save against Varela at the 88’, and he also was hurt by Postiga, and a lot o supporters in the world were afraid of seeing Manuel ashore, but he has raised, as only he can does. Indestructible.
GOMEZ: More that anything else, he is the decisive man. And here counts a lot. He didn’t score in competition like that: that of yesterday is the 23rd goal in National team, the 45th in season.
MULLER: Runs but he never centers the goal.
PODOLSKI: If he wants to return in his Poland where there will play the quarters, he can’t err the conclusions as yesterday.
POSTIGA: Warned after 13’ for a bad entry on Neuer. The only known relevant.
RONALDO: We expect more by him. Stop.
The match is very balanced and, at times, also boring because both the players of Germany and Portugal don’t manage to create important actions, until the crossbar of Pepe, which reminds us of the problem of technology in football ,(if she had gone and no one had seen it, it would have been the tipical troubles).
The problem of Portugal is always the same: they have very great footballers, like Pepe, Nani, Meireles and the obvious Ronaldo, but the others are mediocre, and in football a team has to be harmonized and well-orchestrated, and it can’t happen if only four or five players are able to do it. An example is the center forward, Postiga, who doesn’t manage to do it anything , we remember him only for the warning for an very bad entry on Neuer.
Germany is more concentrated, the players are the youngest and maybe the best of the competition, but they don’t manage to be very dangerous in area, until the header of Mario Gomez in the second half, and behind this important goal, there is a story, the story of how football is strange but in the same time adorable.This goal is a lucky shot, a double lucky shot. First of all, Gomez shouldn’t be on the field because he was destinend to be substituted by Klose, and also he shouldn’t be able to score because the cross of Khedira was too low but the deviation of Moutinho changed the path.
After the goal, the match becomes more exciting with Portugal that doesn’t want to lose a match up at that moment balanced, and they do their best attacking with they all players the area of Neuer. But an other time Neuer shows his great ability, most of all, against Varela.
