    Ozil really should have been dropped for Draxler or Gotze. Was dire in the last game.

    Mueller's WC strike rate is ludicrous.

    Quality defending. Who was marking Muller? This could be a rout.

    Nah, it'll be Martinez when the time comes.

    Ha, comedy defending from Brazil. An umarked Muller only ends up one way.

    Interesting way to defend a corner, giving the guy five yard from the centre of the goal a good few yards of space...

    I really don't get this. Ozil has a quiet game and he is always labelled awful rather than just kind of average which is what he was.

    Comedy goal but a great start. As much as I don't like this Brazil I want them to show something now.

    Indeed - and Gotze's last match was genuinely dire.

    Probably biased, don't really rate him, but he was awful in their last game, and had a shocking end to last season. Love Draxler too. Good old FM bias.

    Talking of FM bias. I hope Bernard plays well.

    What have Götze or Draxler done in recent months?

    Edit: Hadn't scrolled down. Yeah what Pothas said. And Özil also seems to be the only attacking player for Germany who's ever criticised for a poor game.

    Draxler earnt a 7.86 average rating in the Bundesliga for my Bayern side.

    It's early, but Brazil look clueless when it comes to breaking down this German defence. No spark with Neymar gone. Has Bernard touched the ball yet?

    Because he's no longer a trendy player to gush over now that he plays for Arsenal.

    Wow. Germany. Did not think Brazil would be this bad at home.
