German coach has much to answer for as their best performance against Portugal was when he was confined to the shadows. Taking off Klose was the last straw and should cost him his positon.
Both teams should feel blessed at reaching the final. Thanks Jupiter!
Bad luck again for Ballack.

Raul is probably the only spaniard who isn't so happy for the win. Bet the spanish press aren't criticising aragones any more!

I would imagine Raul was happy to have left an impression on a lot of the current Spanish players, with the current players happy and thankful toward Raul. Raul was a predator during the lean, but well ranked years. Predatory strikers seem to flow from Spain these days.

The most worrying thing for me is people like Hanson saying "throw away the coaching manual" Lets hope all the English so called superstarswere watching the Spanish .Also all the numpties in the English game at all levels who believe its all about "sticking it up them" should video it and watch it and show it to every single player at what ever level and then explain how to trap and pass and find space.Simple really.

Is it any coinsidence that ManU players never seem to be able to perform in international tournaments or is it because they don't receive the same favouritism from referees.

And isn't it funnny how pundits such as Alan Hansen and Alan Shearer have all the sudden become fans of beautiful football yet when oppositions play 'ugly' football against Arsenal they tend to give them credit. Very fickle punditry:-/
