True, but he finished. More than can be said for any of our Dutch players with the same opportunities. The second was a fantastic power shot with pace. The no-call on the handball on Italy's goalline at the start of the game was huge (led to Germany's first corner kick). Refs swollowed the whistles on that one. Germany is going to have to bring in some more of their offensive minded players at the half and pray they don't get killed on the counter.
Halftime: Smoke, fresh beers, headcall....back in 15.....come on Germany, make a game of it.
