Exactly. I feel that it is ironic that bayern players are doing magic for the germany team but bayern isn't getting enough power. I hope to see a change in bayern' luck soon.

Yep yep yep. I am also beginning to believe it is Magath's fault they don't produce that at club level. If Podolski doesnt start on Saturday that guy has something wrong with his head.

Fantastic match last night. I loved it. Four fantastic goals. Every one was great :) They lost their form a bit in the second half but when Slovakia scored they seemed to bounce back again.

BRATISLAVA, Slovakia -- Lukas Podolski shrugged off media criticism to score a pair of goals as Germany outclassed Slovakia 4-1 in their Group D Euro 2008 qualifier. :?

Podolski, struggling to make Bayern Munich's starting team and sent off in Germany's friendly against Georgia on Saturday, set the tone with the first goal after 13 minutes. :shock:

The visitors attacked at will throughout the match on their way to making it three wins out of three in the campaign. :o

Miroslav Klose set up the score after sprinting down the right side past three Slovak players before playing the ball back to his unmarked strike partner. :(

Skipper Michael Ballack made it 2-0 12 minutes later as he headed home Philipp Lahm's free kick. :)

Bastien Schweinsteiger stretched the lead further in the 36th minute when goalkeeper Kamil Contofalsky could not hold Ballack's shot. Schweinsteiger drove home the rebound cementing a game that was never in doubt for the visitors. :D

"A lot of experts said it would be difficult to keep this good run up after the World Cup. We've proven in the last five matches we were able to do just that. We played a super match and deserved to win 4-1," said Podolski. :wink:

"I've said all along it doesn't interest me at all what happens off the pitch. What's important is what happens on the pitch. The rest doesn't mean a damn thing." :roll:

Stanislav Varga spoiled goalkeeper Jens Lehman's shutout with a header in the 58th minute before Podolski scored his second of the evening when Klose again provided an open goal after the duo sprung the offside trap.

Germany coach Joachim Loew said: "We had a very good first half. We controlled the match and were able to make our mark. It was a joy to watch the way the energy was flowing. We proved that we can stand up to a strong opponent away as well.

"It was difficult to keep up that high level in the second half. We were a bit careless but what was good was the way we reacted after they scored their goal. We bounced right back and got a fourth."


Slovakia came into the match buoyed by a 5-1 drubbing of Wales on Saturday and were looking to repeat a 2-0 friendly win over Germany 13 months ago when the two nations last met. :oops:

But that confidence was quickly broken and the Slovaks never appeared to get back into the match. :P

"We started really badly and gave up three goals on three chances. We were motivated but the Germans are a quality team, that's not an excuse, that's a fact," said Slovak defender Peter Petras.

The game was marred briefly by a skirmish in the crowd when several German fans battled Slovak police, who used truncheons. :mrgreen:

Before the match about 180 German hooligans registered by German police were stopped at border crossings as they tried to travel to the match. Last year German fans fought with Slovak police after match between the sides in Bratislava. :|

Struggling Ireland hold Czechs
Meanwhile, struggling Ireland pulled off a 1-1 home draw against Group D leaders Czech Republic, helping to answer criticism of their performance against Cyprus. :arrow:

Following calls for the resignation of manager Steve Staunton after Ireland's humiliating 5-2 defeat in Nicosia on Saturday, an injury-hit and relatively inexperienced Ireland side put on a composed display in defence to keep their opponents in check and were energetic up front. :idea:

Both sides had a handful of chances in the first half, with one of Ireland's best coming from Jonathan Douglas whose low shot at goal inside the area was kicked away by goalkeeper Peter Cech for a corner. :?:

A Milan Baros corner tested third-choice keeper Wayne Henderson close to the break but he reacted quickly to keep the ball out, leaving the score 0-0 at halftime. :!:

Ireland's efforts were rewarded in the second half when winger Damien Duff made a strong run down the right and crossed low for Kevin Kilbane whose strike found the top corner to give the home side the lead. :lol:

A delighted home crowd erupted but they had little time to celebrate. 8)

Czech striker Jan Koller picked up a quick free-kick less than two minutes later and beat fullback Paul McShane, making his debut for Ireland, for a low strike that whipped past Henderson. :?

The draw gives Ireland, who lost 1-0 to Germany in their opening qualifier, their first points in the group, while the Czechs stay top with 10 points from four matches. :shock:

Wales restore some pride
Wales restored some pride in the wake of Saturday's humiliating defeat to Slovakia with a comfortable 3-1 win over Cyprus to register their first points in Group D. :o

First-half goals from Jason Koumas and Robert Earnshaw and a second half-strike from Craig Bellamy helped the hosts to solid win over a side who stunned Ireland 5-2 at the weekend and gave the fans something to cheer after the pain of Saturday's 5-1 loss to Slovakia, their worst home defeat in almost a century. :(

Having also lost their opener in the Czech Republic, hopes of qualifying from a tough group were already looking slim before kick-off but Wales set out in determined mood. :)

Coach John Toshack resisted making wholesale changes to his inexperienced team although goalkeeper Paul Jones and defender Rob Edwards made way for Lewis Price and debutant Craig Morgan. :D

Wales scored the opener after 33 minutes through Koumas, who has a Cypriot mother, when he headed a Simon Davies cross through the fingers of Michael Morphis, before Bellamy squared for an easy chance for Earnshaw six minutes later to leave Wales 2-0 up at the break. :wink:

The visitors improved after the interval and were denied a goal of their own when Lewis Price saved well from Ioannis Okkas. :roll:

But Wales made it safe ahead when Bellamy grabbed his first goal for his country in 20 months after he finished another Davies pass from inside the box on 72 minutes.

Okkas lobbed Price with eight minutes remaining for a clever late score, the result was already beyond Cyprus with the 20,456 fans inside the 72,000-capacity Millennium Stadium able to cheer a home win. :P
