    I don't suppose you have seen any of this team since the WC final? :)

    Ukraine are out.

    To my understanding

    Germany will go through with:
    A win or draw vs. Northern Ireland

    Poland will go through with:
    A win or draw vs. Ukraine

    Northern Ireland will go through with:
    A win vs. Germany

    So much complaining here. Germany wasn't good, that's right, but they didn't need to win.
    Poland had one or two scoring chances, That was it.

    Anyone remembering the Algeria game last WC? That was a poor game. No damage was done. Germany will win against NIR.

    Germany didn't have anything going on the right side.

    Gotze, I'm a fan, but was horrible as a striker.

    Ozil had a bad second half.

    Muller has been bad for a while now.

    I liked Draxler, like I like Schurrle - they run at the defenders, they try to have an end-product.

    Hector - no delivery.

    Howedes... why the hell is the playing wingback?

    AHHHHH you see how well coached the Italians are and how poorly set up the Germans are...

    Yet, Kroos is the MVP so far. I love that little Ossi.

    A rubbish match is a rubbish match and that's not affected by past outcomes or any potential, presently purely speculative future outcomes.

    Huge meh. It's much easier to sit back against a planless team trying to attack like Belgium than attack against a well set up counter attacking team like Poland.

    Oh, I believe they are going to advance. In this system almost guaranteed at this point. But the offense has been very poor. The system and the choice for the positions seem to have flaws. There is a lot to complain. You can expect a better game from Germany.

    If Northern Ireland beat us, they have two more points, so not quite. :)

    As a German, Italy is the match I dread after having seen both play.

    Man oh man has Milik been bad in front of goal in this tournament. He scored the one against Northern Ireland, but he's missed so many easy chances. Poland could've won this game if he were stronger up front.

    Boateng and Hummels were amazing together today.

    I don't think that's true..it's possible all groups' 3rd placed team has 4 points and then it's down to goal difference and goals scored.

    You don't go out with 4 points. The best 4 thirds advance, too.

    True. But there still games to be played before we know. It's extremely unlikely I guess. Don't feel like doing math now.

    Sure, it would be likely, but at this stage, there's no way that's guaranteed.

    I guess both teams are fine with the result especially Poland but for the neutral this was a big letdown, the game needed an early goal. At the moment the German team don't look that impressive. I know this happened before but there's still lots of question marks.

    Not necessarily.

    N.Ireland could beat Germany and Poland lose. Poland would have 4 points.

    Could still not be a top four, third place team

    You love to make excuses for Bayern and Germany but tonight (like in many of Pep's defeats) the whole "keep the ball and do nothing with it" plan exposes huge flaws.

    Low picked a squad with poor full-back depth and tactics that seem rather outdated. They were impressive against Ukraine for spells but you're going to have to break down counter-attacking team somehow - I don't think they have any sort of plan at all.

    Italy are often terrifying to face off against. So much spirit, so much discipline, so much savvy.


    Boateng, Hummels and Kroos were the only good Germans on the pitch.

    Kroos... oh man I can't get over how much I love that guy. And how I thumb my nose as his many haters and Bayern fanboys who argued that Thiago and Gotze were ahead of the depth chart. :laugh: Goes to show, the grass isn't always greener...

    Germany would lose vs Italy with this performance every single time. Italy could defend the German rubbish with ease much like Poland basically did but they have more skill going forward and would finish 1 or 2 counters. It's almost like we saw that exact match at some recent European championship. ;)

    You see the Kroos-Hector-Ozil effect on the left.

    And the barren Khedira-Muller-Howedes zone.

    At least put Mustafi there ffs - and I say this as a fan of Howedes.

    To all the math geniuses: You are right, still won't happen. Poland and Germany will advance.

    Pazdan played amazing tonight, I'm so sorry I was doubting you man. He showed why Nawalka trusts in him.
