World Cup Day 24: Third Place Play-Off

Germany 3 Portugal 1. Another good performance from a German team that wanted this game. The surprised me and almost made a believer in me. Is this the dawn of a new age of attacking German football away from the typical safe, robotic style they've played over the years. I hope so because it can only be good for the game. They were almost one of the fairest teams, despite having the king of divers, Klinsmann as a coach. He made me a believer in him also wit his passion, determination and above all non-wavering belief in his system and his way. The US wants him to be their coach if the rumours are true. It would be a great choice, but, Germany would be amiss to let him get away.

One game to go and then it is all over for another four (well two really) years.
