Herr Loewe's fraulains

I hate being that wrong. But I don't sacrificing my ego for goals. Ozil was finesse personified and Podolski and Lahm also stuck out in a pretty dominant master-class.

It could have been so different had Garcia netted early on. But the Aussies exuberance didn't mask an aging and misplaced defence. Lucas Neill played Mueller onside from Ozil's sublime pass and then rather than guard against Podolski's shot he was too busy claiming offside.

Moore shouldn't be playing - in fact he essentially wasn't and Verbeek has a lot to do to turn this ship around now. Cahill's dismissal affects their course too and a lot will depend on who comes in for him.

I was very wrong and very impressed with the Germans.
