Oh Balotelli, you're a hoot. Bit of a rebellious child though.

The Germans are playing strong tonight, hope they can pull it off.

This is going well! First half was German domination, then 2nd half the Greek came back. But now it's 3-1. Germany found their mojo again, wouldn't surprise me if moar goals happen.

What a terrible goalkeeper. I don't think he held on to a single ball.

From the BBC Text updates:

According to Opta, Germany had 75% of the possession in the game. 75%! That is three-quarters of the game! They also made 709 passes to Greece's 220, had 26 attempts to Greece's 10 and won the corner count 10-1. It was men against foetus's out there.

A shame Germany didn't score more.

Why is each Spain game so boring to watch? France was pretty shitty.

I hope Portugal beat them in the semis.

Because what many pundits praise as skill is just a thinly disguised form of catenaccio.

Death by square passing.

Boring as hell.

It was the same in the WC.

What is Spain (or Barca, for that matter) supposed to do when an opponent packs it in on defense and shows nothing in terms of counterattack (and also if their own back four is somewhat sketchy as well)? If they don't need to score, no reason to turn the ball over.

If it's not skill, it should be easy to steal the ball back then.
