Germany! Germany! I can barely believe my eyes! What has just happened? I'm happy, my most hated team in the World Cup is out and in the most dramatic fashion! Yay!
Yes, I have a sort spot for Germany because all the journalists in the local media and also the British media are anti-Germany and pro-Brazil. The Germans have played a good, skilful game (since the beginning according to accounts) without committing the most fouls or being dirty.
I would not be sorry if Germany goes and lift the World Cup now. I do like the Netherlands but Robben, despite his wonderful skills, does leave a sour taste because of his diving.
This has been a most wonderful footballing year. Manure and Brazil are now in the dustbin.
