Not worse but very close...
But you have to keep in mind the opponents: Czech Rep , Netherlands and Latvia... Germany drew against the Baltic tm but CZ and Ne were quite a hard nut to crack...

The Czechs were already through and rested eight starters, and Germany still lost.

Yes, I remember there was a poster that the Czech had the Dutch for breakfast, Latvia for lunch, and now they will have Germany for dinner.
I miss ballack though. I hate him for leaving Bayern. But he was phenomenal.

They didn't show any of the matches on US TV, but yes, I do remember post-match write-ups saying the Germans' had a lot of chances but their finishing was very poor.

Went to check the line ups again...

Lahm started all games...

Voeller started Boboc Kuranji...
And left Klose on the bench...

There was a certain Bastian Schweinsteiger and Podolski on the bench

By the way Italians are still partying for Ger elimination...
They keep on repeating what Basti said before the tournament when asked who his favourites were... to which question Basti said Holland and Italy...

It’s all just banter and serves Bastian right for being a cheeky arrogant asshole.

Anyway when Germany gets eliminated from a competition I usually root for:
1. Netherlands
2. Portugal (on hold until the narcissist retires)
3. Italy

This time I wanna see a first time Champ so bad! :P

Haha he actually deals with fake news, though he's trolled the media into a frenzy so he kinda deserves it half the time. I'll admit if I don't know something; probably won't completely take anyone's word for anything. Sadly with work lately I can't afford to kill time these days so I can't even pretend to be one of the many pseudo experts.

I think that this was once in a lifetime. Rehhagel's job was so undervalued IMO.

Nobody ever manage to win a cup with that quality difference against the opponents (A fantastic Czech, France with Zidane and Portugal with Figo and young Ronaldo to mention some). A lot of small teams in football history came close to the dream, but no one actually won it. It was a real shock for footballing world.

Boring football? Maybe. Ungly? Probably. But the passion everyone showed was unbelievable. If 2018 Germany had 1% of that passion, with their talent, they would still be in the competition and probably win it.

BTW yesterday was a fantastic day for football. It even took my mind away of Germany humiliation.

Oh, how much I like WC :-)

From 1986 until now, every 4 years I truly perish those moments. (I had watched the 1982 final which was my first ever football game and probably the reason I hate Italy and rooted for Germany onwards).
