Deutchland with the win!
Sometimes, size matters.

A little push to the back doesn't hurt either!

Are Turkey unbelievable or what? Three straight come from behind wins.

Croatia had the better chances throughout the match. Modric's feed to Olic's miss was huge.
Tuncay and Turan, two of the best midfielders for Turkey, aren't going to be able to play against the Germans anyway.

HAHA, the Dutch lose to Gus AGAIN!!!

Van Baston subbing out Kuyt was a big mistake. The Russians did most of the damage from the left after Kuyt came off.
Gus Hiddink is the Larry Brown of soccer.

Wow, who would have thought that Russia would outplay the Dutch so clearly?
Another nice game is coming up, Italy vs. Spain. I have no clue who will win this one, Spain is starting his top players and has played a great preliminary round, Italy is starting to play better but a few important players like Pirlo are suspended.
I'm definitely looking forward to this game.

Spain dominated and they were clearly deserving winners. I'm so glad the curse is broken, unfortunately I don't see them beating Germany in the final if they can get past Russia again.

I doubt they can get past the Russians this time around. I don't think Arshavin was available for the Russians when they played Spain during pool play.

I'm glad you were wrong. Russia did not look like the team that beat the Dutch a week ago.
