    Well I guess we will find out now.

    Soft goal to concede. Shame for France as they looked the most likely to score before that.

    Hoping for Germany to lift the cup

    Wow. Germany have scored already. Yes
    And smalishah's avatar is the most classy one by far Jan certainly echoes the sentiments of CW

    Yeah we don't crap in the first world; most of us would actually have no idea what that was emanating from Ajmal's backside. Why isn't it roses and rainbows like what happens here? PEWS's retort to Ganeshran on Daemon's picture depicting Ajmal's excreta

    Thanks for the documentary recommendation guys (30/30 the two escobars). It was excellent. Colombia definitely the team I'm rooting for the most now.

    Aside from the goal, would say France looked the better team. Not much in it though.

    Valbuena and Pogba looking so good, amazed more sides aren't being rumoured as interested in Valbuena. France will be massively disappointed if they end up losing this game, they were the better side for much of that half.

    German goal was the best thing for the game. French looked happy to sit back until it went in, but having to play a little more.

    Klose unlucky not to get the pen, IMHO. Exaggerated the fall too much, I think. Def contact tho.

    They look really good when Pogba drives forward. I feel they can create chances but they can't afford to be wasteful.

    France definitely improved as the half went on. Hope they score early on in the second otherwise Germany will start destroying them on the counter.

    Not sure France have the clinical finishing in them they need here.
