So. This is where we find out if Germany can actually play.
Really hope it'll be a great game too.
Argentina to equalise in the last 10 minutes and go through on penalties.
All conceded by Germany in the last five minutes.
but get lots of bookings and struggle with next round.
get brazil or france.
I have a sneaky suspicion that we, sorry England, can beat them and that only the Germans or Italians can out-bore England.
all the teams that close us down are boring as hell. The only way we ever play well is by exploiting attacking teams' defensive deficiencies.
there will be a lot of bookings in this game. two physically strong teams, no nonsense refereee.
Argentina are less racist. Perhaps.
Argies nearly scored again.
to play extra time without Riquelme. Germany will win.
Nice one, Craig.
and.... it's over!
Extra time. I want penalties!
Then Argentina to win!
Ballack off! Must be considered a penalty taker. Not good for the Germans.
Neither have everlost a mjorpenaltyshott out. NOW THEY WILL KNOW THE PAIN.
I just want the more beatable side to go through in case we have to play them.
well, either side is a fucker but I'd love germany to get knocked out. If we play either, it'll be in final...
I can't lost to Germany AGAIN. Or Argies actually.
Still, want Argies to win.
either in the Final would be to painful. Still, the country would come together in pain. And then we'd shoot the Scots smirking behind their hands.
2-1 to Germans
easily saved once Crazy Lens went the right way.
to the crowd!!
What a cool match.
what was that? What happened - I momentarily walk out of the room and come back to Argies launching themselves at the Germans.
I really don't think that is Germany here though.
It's more fun with the hosts in, they're better sportsmen than the Argies, and they marginally deserved it.
not sure what happened. Neither are particularly likeable teams anyway. Some of the diving was cringeworthy. Ballack particularly.
That fight at the end was bizzare. so undignified.
never mind what's being said.
just how it was presented on tv. I think you're right though, I don't see how else Heinze especially would've got so wound up.
to win 4-0? it doesn't seem to be their style. it'll be more like 2.
but it takes two to tango, and all that. italy seem too laid back to take advantage of such collapsage.
"Playing for Man Utd, you must be used to coming second"
(Puts tongue in cheek and runs away).
I bet the BBC website use that headline all the time to describe German World Cup victories. Except this time they weren't talking about the football. (I know, I know, an Englishman has no room to talk, but I've had enought to drink to make such a hypocritical comment justified).
