Solid effort, altho Ballack's double yellow is a massive massive blow. Without him theyre gonna struggle even to get 1 goal. That offside right at the end was interesting, maybe FIFA decided the semis was far enuff for the hosts.

Well played Germany, though yes they will miss Ballack.
Korea were lack-lustre once more, they never looked really like winning the match without help from the referees, which they didnt get today.
I dont think the offside decision is an issue, Kahn easily claimed the ball anyway.

I guess the title of this thread should be " Germany KNOW how to win", but that would be to expect too much from an England supporter.

hehe well i was actually paying tribute to them, theyre the one team at this world cup ive seen play effectively within its limitations apart from maybe the irish.

I don't know who ill be supporting in the final, without ballack germany will certainly be underdogs if its against brazil so i might still support em...

I thought Ballack's previous yellow had been lifted.

And I thought Germany played pretty well--they just couldn't get their headers on target. Korea did play some solid defense in the penalty area, boxing out their men and not letting them get clear headers on goal.

Korea's offense, on the other hand, was practically non-existent save for the one early shot by Chun-Soo Lee that was magnificently saved by Oliver Kahn.

Ballack has been instrumental, even that he is not even at 60% imo, but with or without Ballack, Brazil would be favorite.

the CNN/SI score ticker thing i was watching said ballack will NOT miss the next game because his previous yellow had been switched to someone else.

I double-checked; I think it is Neuville who had his previous yellow rescinded.

Yeah it was Neuville, the fault in the past game was from Jeremies.

If Brazil goes to the final and Germany manages to win, I'm sure it will be thanks to St. Olli Kahn.

Nice shot of Kahn. Was that the one from the first 5 minutes?

Damn right, Kahn has been an absolute rock for them throughout the world cup so far, still only one goal conceded in 6 matches now (Robbie!!!) I reckon that could be something of a culture shock for the Brazilians, anyway in the final who knows, everyone thought Brazil would win in 98 too.
I think Klose and Neuville assuming they play need to perform a lot better in the final, havent really seen a lot from those 2 in the last few games.

The talk here btw raffie is "Can one man win the World Cup?"
