How do Germany manage it?

Premier League Tottenham Hotspur

comment on the article

After being completely outplayed by Turkey from start to finish, they have somehow managed to find their way into the Final of Euro 08. With a clown of a goalie, surely they will get a good thumping in the final by the winners of Spain or Russia, or do the Germans have the luck that always seem to desert the English.

Germany can not win the final because Ballack is there.He lost at least 5 finals since he was playing for bayern leverkusen.He is very unlucky and spain plays champagne football.

rabile:

Your logic is overwhelming. I admire it, especially since my grandma had the same kind of logic.

Thankfully Turkey can go home now and all this inflated super-hype about the quality of their players will die down.Kazim Kazim's only telling contribution to the game was falling over his own feet allowing Germany to score the winner.A talent so miserably out of his depth in this competition not even Stoke would sign him! Premiership quality indeed!

TeaTimeAtHarrods, of course I do respect your opinions,however, I do not agree with you. I really do like the German National Team, and I know that they indeed are really good. I think Turkey was pretty good yesterday, they were really brave and just an FYI, they're not some lousy team, they managed to take the 3rd place in the World Cup and they do have qualified and talented players.

I agree that Germany found a way to win last night and this is not the first time they have done this. England only needed to find a way to draw and they would have been at Euro 2008, that's all there is to it. Sometimes the margins between success and failure are not that great.

Germany didn't have an easy ride this time. They had to beat Portugal and Turkey on the way to the final.

I hope they win.

Reading the comments on this post (since my own yesterday) has just reminded me why I left the UK for Germany... You guys are so sour!!! HAHAHAHAHAHA it makes me so glad England didn't qualify this year and so don't even have the chance to experience the success Germany is having, even if it does mean my Germany friends take the p*** out of me. Go suck lemons.

Speak for yourself, I'm English living in France & from what I've heard the French aren't following the tournament anymore ever since they flopped out & the English ex-pats here are all for a Spanish victory. Of course that's generalizing only very slightly less than yourself though..cool

It was rumoured my team Hull City were interested in signing Kazim 'Colin' Richards! But after he fell over & delivered some very innacurate passes then maybe Stoke can have him. But I wonder if you think he's so bad then why does he play for FB? And he scored against Chelsea.

Finally Arda is my fav Cim Bom player too. Good luck in the next WC qualifiers, I want to see Turkiye in the next World Cup..

We didn't play with only Germany.We played with 4 men too...I don't understand why a person with a team in football.The 4 Men weren't objective about Turkey.Not only in this match.In our another matches were very difficult for us because we play with 15 againest player.NOT 11...I just wanted say that.Europe know us really different.Please try know us TRUTHLY...
