    Wonderful finish to a frustrating game for me. I needed Germany to win as part of a bet I had going so when they finally scored I was very happy..

    Poland could still go through if the following results happen

    Costa Rica and germany both beat Ecuador
    Poland beat Costa Rica

    I'm hoping for a Costa Rica win later, just to keep the group alive

    Yeah I want Costa Rica to win as well..

    Poland don't deserve to get through.. They paid for not being up for their first game.

    I think they underestimated Ecuador personally

    Congratulations to the BBC:

    1 min: Ecuador's record at altitude was said to be the reason behind their good record in qualifying and right from the kick off they are looking to hit the high ball to the front men.

    Important 3rd goal from Ecuador there, means that a draw against Germany is enough for Ecuador to top the group.

    Which increases the likelihood of Germany getting thrown out of their own party very early by the World Champions-elect, England

    i hope Germany defeat Ecuador at least by a two goal margin since i don't want England to come up againts the germans in the round of 16 even though i think we would beat them.

    I don't care who we face, to win the World Cup you have to beat good sides. We are a much better side than the Germans, even if we aren't on form yet.

    But it is a lot better if you have to face lesser of the possible tough sides.

    Small point, but why the 2 goal margin?

    The Germans will not be wanting to meet us. Playing the home nation so early would be something to avoid ideally, but if it happens I'm pretty confident of beating them, they are woeful at the back.

    Ecuador's goal difference is 2 better than germany's, so I'm assuming that Aussie has forgotten Germany will get points for their victory. He's also forgotten that germany scoring once would actually level their goal differences anyway and take the Germans ahead on goals scored, even if the match was 0 points for a win!
