Judged from my objective group of regulars socccer analytic expertise, I'ld say Germany is the only team who can beat Spain atm.

    But everything is possible in soccer
    The stupid referee didn't notice a foul committed by an Italian player inside the penalty area in the 2006 Semis as I recall. Given that penalty kick to Ballack, it would have surely meant a German victory. The English commentators always say - 'Ballack never Miss'.

    Urghhh!

    And the Italians managed to sneak a goal in the last minute followed by another. What were the chances?? The Germans were surely the best 2006 team. The Italians just managed to cheat themselves in to the finals and made racial taunts to get rid of Zidane and win it. Fuck the 2006 Italian team.

    Sorry @FDG!

    I *think* the final was pretty fair and each team could have deserved to win. 2-0 was way too much but 1-0 could have been okay, as well as a victory of either team at the shootouts, or a 1-0 for Germany aswell. I don't think there was much unfairness against the germans? Basically I don't know what you're talking about with this Balllack thingy...

    But yeah well overall our team is worse than the german team; each player could be compared to each german player and be totally OK, however we lack cohesion since we have only recently changed most of them. Plus, some of our players are just lazy and-or crazy (Cassano, Balotelli).

    Spain is equally better than Germany, however single matches are tricky and anything can happen. I truly believe it's impossible to predict who will will between Portugal, Spain, Germany and Italy.

    I don't know about the rest of you but I'm all enthusiastic about the '14 World Cup in Brazil.

    True Spain did win. But they had to go for penalties.

    Why such confidence 'for' the Spanish team?

    They seem to be less aggressive than some other teams and get very few hits towards the target.

    Germany Vs Italy

    Sigh!!!

    Will it be another 2006 world cup semi finals? Italy played so well against the English and Germany has always always always being a wonderful (infact the most consistent) team for such a long time.

    Germans!!!

    spain redefined the way to play soccer in 2006. in that year they were unbeatable, cause noone played like them. thats probably the reason why they have some sort of reputation today.

    But the game wasnt convincing today. its so sad portugal didnt win, otherwise I had won 50 euro :/

    Germany's my team. I rooted for them since their '02 final against Brazil.

    ..They face Italy who they'll have to beat followed by Spain in the final.

    They seem rather tired, even somewhat demotivated (compared to their usual "stellar" performance), while their style of play requires very fresh players.
