    Germany is going to be missing a lot of players due to injuries/suspensions. I think France will be favored. They would be smart to take out their guys that have yellows.

    Would've been nice if the match would've been close late. When it was 2-0, I figured it might end 2-1.

    France could've beaten germany in Brazil if they played like they gave two ****s. They can beat Germany here too.

    I thought they cared, just Neuer made a few great saves and I believed Benzama hit the post towards the end.

    Germany can't possibly think they can play Schweinsteiger against these.

    France is playing REALLY well. But they might things are going fast against Germany due to their opposition so far.

    No, we won't beat Germany. That's just how if goes. Even if we play better than them, even if we're twice as talented as them (which is not the case), we still lose when it matters against them. That's what history has shown us.

    Just need to look at the quality of the play not the opponent.

    You could say the same thing about German - Brazil. Sometimes credit should be given where it's due.

    Germany usually loses to Italy, yet they beat them yesterday, have faith.

    Yes, it's true. But they didn't beat Italy either. Tied them.

    France never got to play them on home soil in one of these games.

    Also if Khedira and Gomez are out, physicality is lacking from Germany at striker and in midfield.

    All right. Sorry. :) I'm a Finn after all, the meaningless underachiever when it comes to this sport.

    No kidding. Some poster here :shakehead

    If someone thinks the French can walk through the german defence like they do today: Take your medicine.

    Germany-France is 50/50 like Germany-Italy was 50/50.

    France doesn't have much of a chance against Germany. Beating Iceland decisively means nothing in terms of beating Germany.

    I think Germany's only advantage is that France hasn't faced a strong team yet, they need to strike early. If that doesn't work, just try to park the bus and hope for a lucky punch.

    Yeah, it's a different game against Germany. But nevertheless, France looks really good. And it's not all because this is a mis-match. They are playing like a legit contender.

    Germany will beat France 2-0 or 3-0 in a game where they will dominate possession the entire match and France will try to counter and ultimately fail.
