  • At least they didn't lose on penalties!

    I had a feeling this would go Germany's way, although not by 4-1. It's a shame that the tying goal was disallowed, but without video replay, that's the way it is. Today was a good day to use as an argument because the first Argentinian goal in the other game should not have counted and this one should have.

    I think on balance, the Germans are full value for the win. England made too many mistakes and say what you will about the goals, a world class goalkeeper has just got to stop at least one of the first three goals. The fourth one was lovely, but the other three should not have all gone in. The first one a was very, very poor defensive play. That's another reason why Germany won they made less mistakes.

    Germany is still an enigma. They look like finalists against England and Australia and anything but against Serbia. We'll have to see which side shows up in the quarter-finals.moreless

    As Pardon the Interruption would say about it: Happy Trails England! Happy Trails Group C too!

    One day after The US was ousted from the 2010 World Cup, England got knocked off too. Germany is a very game opponent in any form of competition, just look at World War II for proof of that, but here they just destroyed England. They won't be singing, "England 5 Germany 1" in any London pubs tonight.

    The World Cup is losing its ratings powerhouses, but I am sure the Round of 8 will still be worth watching. Just a shame for ABC/ESPN as the ratings won't be too fantastic.moreless

    • Germany Forward Thomas Muller: I was lucky with my first goal, I just thank God I decided to go for the right side. I always think it's very important not to panic before shooting. Now anything is possible, even if there is a tough nut waiting for us in the next round. But that doesn't matter, we just have to clear the way. We are focused on our goal at this tournament and I have left some space in my trophy cabinet at home.

    • England Manager Fabio Capello: We played well but Germany are one of the biggest teams here. We made some mistakes when they played the counter-attack. The little things always decide the results. After we lost the third goal, we played I think a little bit disappointing. Mistakes were made because they played the counter-attack after the free-kick for us.

    • German Coach Joachim Low: We are very satisfied. It was a fantastic performance against a very experienced England team. I'm sure it was a fun game to watch for the fans.
