Most of their goals came after mistakes from the opposition. That's not something to be proud of.

The goal Denmark scored could have been avoided, but only one goal was conceded from the huge number of set pieces Germany have conceded.

The problem does not relate to goals conceded only, it has to do with looking vulnerable and I feel I am not alone feeling this way. I am not saying Germany’s defense is 3rd class defending set pieces, I am saying it seems to be problematic. Before the tournament the big problem to fix was holding counterattacks, it seems that Löw can patch the holes asking the front line to track back turnovers (the big proof is Gomez interview for dfb.de or Löw admitting on German TV that Podolski was following his game plan to help on defense). Covering the wings defensively minimizes the number of crosses to the area, same with Gomez and Özil tracking back lost possessions, it gives time to Bastian and Khedira to reposition, but Germany loses its trademark attacking flare exhibited in WC 2010 and Euro qualification.
Klinsmann and Löw described Germany’s new style as fast paced attacking football, similar to what Dortmund, Hannover and Mainz played in recent seasons, EURO 2012 Germany is low tempo and conservative, we can wreck our brains all day about what pieces are missing but Löw seems to be sure about what he is doing. Maybe as he gained experience and titles are due he is more about managing games than impressing the observer, something that Vicente Del Bosque does leaving the bitter taste that Spain wins the titles but fails to shine to the point that it suffers to win games.

Since my country ended Euro last night, as always I will support my second favourite team and country where I have lived for 2 years, Germany. I want so much to see Elf rising up this trophy when my aren't in possibility to compete for it. Worth also to mention how Germany is unlucky and frustrated since 2002 till today, two 2nd places, two 3rd places, but still no gold and that's the main reason why Germany need so much this Euro, not to mention our unlucky Bayern from 11-12 season.

They have been waiting success for 16 years and it's finally time to end it with one 1st place, specially after this hard work from entire country and clubs in last 8 years with youth players and academies, systems, etc.

This game will be a great test for Germany game, attacking approach, players who are faced with defensive oriented squad. Just because Germany have fantastic attacking potential it doesn't mean they will in possibility to be just concentratied on offense.

They are must be very cautious with greek counters, passes from the flanks, so do as free kicks in 25-30m zone far from the Neuer' goal and corners.

Some key players or moves for wining Greece, I don't know... Be very careful not to lose ball around the center, play very quick and try to get in chances from the flanks, just like from the center, too.

Lessons are quite expensive these days. Hopefully they will learn a good one on Friday. One thing to note is that Germany will play on Friday and whoever wins will meet the team that wins on Sunday. This is a great advantage: two whole days of rest! Even though whoever then gets to the final will get 1 day less.

Sadly media in both countries are trying to give a political dimension to the game:

F*CK you magath!!! always against Bayern and Bayern's players. This won't be a friendly against some low level team like san marino -- Greece shocked Russia. If we just filled in with our "B" team, then we "B" gone out of the tournament. So resting Schweini may make sense, or another player or two, but jesus - come on.
