    Pretty interesting games today, Germany look a class above the rest of the teams in this group. But Costa Rica and Ecuador look like they got some potential, really looking forward to their match against each other. Poland look pathetic, to say the least. I can't see Costa Rica or Ecuador moving belong the 2nd round though and Germany really need to work on their defence, but they didn't seem to miss Ballack too much, which is a good sign.

    "All the teams we've seen so far". That means Germany, Costa Rica and Poland, yeah? No, I wasn't referring to teams we hadn't seen yet.

    I know a few of the keepers were having a moan (as keepers do) about the balls being "goalkeeper unfriendly", but jeez they move like the 99p plastic floaters you used to buy from service stations on the way to the seaside! Frings's shot must've moved 8-10 feet laterally in the air!

    On the plus side my accumulator lives on!
    Yeah he got some ridiculous swerve on that. He started it out in the middle of the goal.

    Who's been playing there for them? Lucic? Cause he's a fairly good player IMO...

    Edman. Lucic is centre back, IIRC.

    Much better performance from Poland first half. Germany probably shaded the half (Podolski must've been briefly possessed by the spirit of his Polish forebears to not even hit the target just before the break), but Poland have shown glimpses. They really need to win tho & I think that might just be beyond them.

    My take - jam has nothing to do with it. Germany just kept going, and going.

    How anyone can say that they were lucky after they had hit the bar twice in a second is beyond me.

    Poland's World Cup over already bar the shouting. Still, they've got their pride, and some nice flavoured vodka, it's all a Pole needs to get on in life.

    Wow. Another lovely game. Am beginning to be a Germany supporter in this cup.

    Never write off Jerry.

    Personally I'm pretty mystified why Poland seemed to be content with a draw. If Ecuador beat Costa Rica (as seems probable) they were pretty much out anyway.

    Terrific game there. Poland fought hard and you have to feel a little sorry for them, but Germany played good football and made plenty of chances, and the better team won in the end.

    Pretty dire group this one. I'd back Ecuador to take the other spot based on the way they played in game one. They should manage a point at least against Costa Rica, and that's all they'll need now.

    Probably, but not necessarily. With a draw Costa Rica could still progress if they beat Poland & Germany beat Ecuador.
