According to Bild, Loew had a tactics meeting and decided to move away from 4-4-2 and was testing out 4-2-3-1. Both Podolski and Frings trained today.

The formation that Bild are predicting is this:

..........................Lehmann...................
Friedrich....Mertesacker...Metzelder...Lahm
...............Frings................Hitzlsperger....
..........................Ballack........................
Schweinsteiger...........................Podolski
.........................Klose...........................

Maybe Rolfes will play on the spot of Frings.

Unfortunately that what I though would happen. After obtaining the 2-0 lead, Germany went into defense mode and that is the worst thing you could do. Because they will keep attacking and Germany keep defending and that is a great risk of conceding a goal. That's what happened. They need to keep attacking and keep possession of the ball. Apart from that very good team work and great motivation by Schweinsteiger.

That was fu**in' close. The Germany of the first half is the best. The reason they played well was because they were more dynamic, searching for space in the midfield and playing one-twos which in the other games was certainly not the case. So that's a very good sign. But I am also angry at the way Germany defend. They let the opposition too much space to shoot and fortunately the accuracy was not on the Portugese side. They need to pressure the man on the ball and close him down immediately. Rolfes really deputised well for Frings in my opinion. Schweinsteiger and Podolski were essential. They both showed their potential and talent. By the way congrats to MunchenFC for guessing Schweinsteiger to score. :P
