DISGRACEFUL showing by Germany!!!!!!
Historic loss to an inferior opponent.

At St. John's nothing is over until we decide it is! Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor? Hell no!

Except for the closing stages against Sweden they showed no fire, acting like they could just waltz in and win because they're Germany.

Now it's time to clean house starting with Low, whose choices for the team and starting line ups were curious at best. Leaving Sane off the squad exposed the speed weakness in the flank attack.

Neur, Meuller, Khedira, Ozil, Reus, Kroos, Hummels, Boateng, Gomez and others need to give way for the next wave . The young team which was playing last year at least showed some spark.

Almost forgot they left Sane out. Among other good young players. But he really sticks out considering he’s easily a top 20 player in the world and didn’t even make this team.

Glad we picked Saint Petersburg semi final as opposed to Moscow.

Moscow half of the draw: Spain, Croatia, Russia, Denmark, Sweden and Switzerland

Saint Petersburg half: Brazil, France, Argentina, Portugal, Uruguay and Mexico

Not determined yet! Tomorrow we will know where they each wind up. Could be very interesting that game could be a tank fest considering it’s favorable to end up on one side and avoid Brazil in quarterfinals

Say what you want about there being too many European teams, for the most part (apart from Germany and Poland), they have all performed / progressed. Same with the S. Americans, bar Peru (sorry Mike).
I would prefer to see more of Europe and S. America there (i.e. Holland, Italy, Ireland, Greece, Chile…)

Africa has fared very badly: Morocco, Tunisia, Egypt, Nigeria, Senegal all out. Ditto middle east: Iran and S. Arabia. Australia, S. Korea done. At least Japan progressed.

Looks bad for the US when Costa Rica and Panama did so poorly. Only Mexico came through for CONCACAF…

There’s a lot of teams just making up numbers and it will be worse in 2026 when there are 48 countries.

Some good matchups now we are down to 16. Croatia have really impressed me… but this thing is wide open.
