    (Is it me - or is Marcel Desailly something of an odd ball? lol.)

    That was a good setpiece play off Mesut Ozil. Germany go through to face England.

    But I guess I'd rather lose to Ghana than Germany if we don't make it through this next game.

    Germany will beat England, 2-0 at least, it may even be 3-0 or 4-0, just like the Under 21 German team beat England by the count of 4-0. After that happens, yet another English media frenzy will erupt about the issue of what exactly inflicted this misfortune upon that glorious nation, was it the coach, the players, the fans, the vuvuzelas? None of that has anything to do with England's recent performance, those ideas are nothing but pitiable excuses for fanatics to avoid owning up to the fact that their team is just not very good, nowhere nearly meritorious enough to compete with opponents who are serious contenders for the World Cup.

    Actually the England players are better on paper. They simply aren't as good as Germany as a team.

    I knew all along that the U.S. would win their entire group on an injury time goal and only by goal margin over England. :rolli:

    Mmm perhaps I was unclear, I do think the professional / competitive soccer culture encourages this behavior, basically any player who had to go through "younger" serie A team will have this fake / cheating behavior ingrained - there's no choice (except not playing professionally, of course - or joining a foreign team). I think a similar issue can be found in cycling with illicit performance enhancing drugs - nobody approves their usage, yet basically every professional engages used doping, simply because you won't reach professional level if you don't. They can be modeled as "positive feedback cycles", they'd need an exogenous shock to be "broken".
