The volley of Kroos is ridiculous! Damn!  And Reus.... What a speed-dribbling goal machine
RocknRoll (Bayern München) 4 years ago
4 amazing goals.... Reus's 2nd (great pass from boatend) awesome finish, Klose what a run and then such a tight finish, Kroos volley on his first brilliant, but I think I prefer the powerbolt on his second.... Please bring this form to the entire world cup and lets finally get our 4th

Germany was just unlucky at the previous Euro, but they could have won it.... These boys are talented and they play very well! Congrats y'all!

Germany always destroys teams until the actual competition where they choke
MuellersEleven (Bayern München) 4 years ago
Ye except they reach the semi final on average at every major tournament making them the most accomplished team on planet earth in that record with 4 Euros and 3 World championships to their name.
Oh btw your profile pic is upside down, Italian
Tooooon (Newcastle United) 4 years ago
Agreed, German teams generally don't choke.... That's why they have such a good record.
If you're looking for chokers, no need to look further than England!
Robin69 (Manchester United) 4 years ago
@Tooooon England just lack talent, period. The english press always over-hypes any and every upcoming british talent and their own chances which is why england are made to look worse than they are @ major tournaments. The truth is that they do not have the talent pool to beat the brazilians, argentinians, germans, italians, the spanish etc etc

As for the germans choking, traditionally they don't choke but joachim loew is missing that winning mentality given the talent pool at his disposal

It's been a while since I last saw this result from Germany
Derjohnny (Bayer Leverkusen) 4 years ago
I have to correct muellerseleven: we've won 3 euros, not 4. And unfortunately the german team really did choke at the last few tournaments.... But we're gonna' win the next!

Ok, that comment was supposed be beneath this one

You got to love the Irish fans.... 6 goals down at the end of the game the stadium is still full. They score a goal and the fans celebrate as they won the game, this is what football is all about!
Francois01 (Bayern München) 4 years ago
The stadium wasn't full at all. Many empty seats at the end. And the atmosphere was not what I expected, to be honest. But who could blame them....
Nevertheless, I like Irish fans! They were very impressive at the Euros.

@calegorma Italians know also how to kick germans but during World Cup
Elvinjones (San Jose Earthquakes) 4 years ago
Ireland won 1-0 in stoppage time!

Every goal looked like one in FIFA 13, I guess that's a good sign for the realism in the game

To much to handle by Ireland!

1 free goal from Germany, to make irish cheer up a little bit. "There always be next time, Irish" said german

If Reus stays relatively uninjured he is gonna' be biiiiig. Love his speed and coldness infront of the goal
Steveex (Borussia Dortmund) 4 years ago
We score 6 in an away game and get great votes.
England plays at home against San Marino, only score 5 goals and they "played awesome"?
Oh come on!
Anubhz (Bayern München) 4 years ago
They are overrated anyways! What's new in that

Nazi? What a are you talking about man? You have a serious comprehension problem. If you call me "verkackter nazi" only for a expresion refering to the wonderful football that the DFB shows actually, so I will call you stupid asshole
Erich (1. Nürnberg) 4 years ago
You are a retard for saying something like this (a sentence that has been shamefully used by the nazis) and "only refer it to football". This has nothing to do with football.
This sentence is disgusting and so are the people using it. Either you have no idea about history, you are 12 years old or you are right-winged scum
MarkoPollo (Borussia Dortmund) 4 years ago
Obskurum.... Not sure if you speak German and really understood what you just said, but I have to agree with Erich. That was completely unnecessary!

This was part of the German national anthem during the reign of the Nazi's and has since been removed because of it's nationalistic tone condescending to all other nations. I'm just going to assume that you didn't know what you were saying.
Steveex (Borussia Dortmund) 4 years ago
Erich chill, he obviously wasn't aware of that. He is a cool dude.
I do have to ask why the explosion of hostility? You know there are forms civilized people communicate.
Obskurum didn't know, that's the end of it

While you might not be aware of the phrase's misused origins, when someone else is trying to help you understand its possible repercussions, it would be best to accept it with some understanding and back down from it.

It is quite similar to the misapprehensions behind the Swastika. While it has stood for centuries longer as a symbol denoting the importance behind the Indus valley civilization, it can very easily be wrongly interpreted if posted here, in a situation which pits Germany against another country. There just needs to be a bit more consideration for the rest of the community shown.

Thank you all and good day.
Erich (1. Nürnberg) 4 years ago
As he has dortmund as favourite team I assumed he was german, and I can't believe that there is one german who doesn't know the interpretation of this sentence. And even as a non-german - you would assume that people are aware of the backround of this sentence (although it's much older than the nazis themselves).

Anyways, I apologize for my rudeness, that is normally not my style, but I have zero tolerance for nazis or people posing their ideologies.

Have a nice day

What did the write? "Deutschland über alles? " If yes: Where is the problem? It is not forbidden, just not sang anymore. It has nothing to do with the Nazis. You are completely wrong if you claim this. Itis a myth and has nothing to do with reality. The text is from 1841. Just listen to the lyrics. Only a complete idiot would interpret something aggressive into those lyrics. They are patriotic without anything against another nation, religion or whatever. By the way: Look up the text of any other national anthem and you will find some horribly aggressive and racist texts, for example the French anthem. They really should be censored!
Erich (1. Nürnberg) 4 years ago
I know it's older, still the nazis used it in their way to express that their nation was better than any other nation in the world. And this tone can't be shaken off anymore (and to be fair, the lyric really DO sound like it is meant this way). In your logic the whole world must be complete idiots by hearing pure chauvinism in that lyrics (as how the nazis meant it, too). Following your argumentation the swastika would be ok, too, because it is much older and has another real meaning. Well it is ok to use.... But not in a german(/european) related context. Think twice, but I reckon with an opinion like that you aren't far away from the brown scum anyways
[account-removed] 4 years ago
You are wrong again. The good old tactics. Scream "Nazi" at people and they will be afraid. That doesn't work with everybody. But if you feel better, go on doing it, but then you are closer to the real Nazis than you would wish for I know how stupid and hypocritical many Germans are about themselves in self-hatred-orgies to feel "better". Ridiculous.

The Nazis sang the first verse and then the so called Horst-Wessel-Lied, which was one of theirs. The first verse is completely harmless, it's not different from any other national anthem. Then explain to me why the second verse is not sang anymore. The Nazis didn't sing it, either. It has just changed. Anthems change over time, like they did before. That's all.

But go on insulting people, for the internet protects you, little man
Obskurum (Borussia Dortmund) 4 years ago
Steve, I do know everything I said. I do know everything about second world war and the third Reich, but some people are tooo sensible. Erich, this is not a European/German context, considering that in this site are a lot of people of many countries around the world. So If it was a german site with only german users I would never wrote that post
