    I thought Ozil was offside live, but the replay showed he was JUST on the mid line.

    Great counter attack by Germany. Now where was that the rest of the game?

    Another excellent defensive play by Mustafi leads to that break.

    Schweini looks ridiculously out of shape to be honest. No way does he play more than a few mins in any of these games.

    That Poland game should be interesting, some real holes in Germany's game today. I think they're fixable but I don't think they'll be fixed. I'd like to know wtf Ukraine did at half time, that was strange how they went from playing with urgency to looking so winded after the half.

    Halftime came at the right moment for the Germans, allowed them to settle down. As time wore on in the 2nd half Ukraine clearly were increasingly tired.

    Germans looked dominant in the 2nd half. All in all a well deserved win. Ukraine probably do feel they deserve better though. A bit unfortunate they had to play against the best CB and GK in the world.

    That's what can happen when there aren't 8 defending players in front of the box.

    Ozil set it up on a platter, but he had time and space on a break. Still he put it on a platter for Schweinsteiger so I wouldn't call that a terrific finish.

    Deserved, but well deserved might be pushing it. The result could have easily been different. Fixed your post as well.

    Exactly.

    Was thinking about him myself. IMO he'd make a difference and he'd stay ahead of Schweinsteiger in terms of caps as well.

    True, but I thougth it kind of bounced right before Schwiensteiger finished, making it tougher. You're right, not "terrific", but a tricky one nonetheless, IMO.

    I think it did, but still routine with a rather empty net and placed right to him. For me I'd have missed it of course, but for these guys I think it was relatively routine.

    Well this is HFBoards... No, I don't think there is a consensus best CB (just like there isn't a consensus best CM despite what some say about Modric). Boateng is certainly part of the discussion, but with Silva and Pique if you ask me.

    I don't there's a legit argument for anyone other than Nuer for the best keeper. TBH

    Everybody knew that hole would be difficult if not impossible to fill . I mean Hector on the left isn't exactly ideal either .

    Maybe not, but I didn't like his positioning at times when he came out.

    Sure, OK what?
