Another match, another revenge to have. When Germany plays against Greece in the quarter-finals at Euro 2012 on Friday, they will have a chance to knock out the team that surprised everyone to win in 2004.
How do we make sense of Sunday’s game? It is a bit of a harsh assignment, my friends. The Germans did satisfy expectations by defeating the Danes, but they made it harder than it could have been and they have given us food for thought.
Denmark 1-2 Germany (Euro 2012 – Group B)
When Germany and Denmark meet on Sunday, there will be a historical wrong to right. It’s that unexpected upset of the 1992 Euro final.
The German National Team took a serious option over Group B on Wednesday, with a convincing win against the Netherlands, but late fitness seemed to be a bit of an issue.
It should be an intense affair when Germany and the Netherlands clash in Kharkiv on Wednesday. Rivals will try to bite each other’s head off.
Hi to our fellow Germany fans from Montreal for Euro 2012: if you want to watch the the Nationalelf against its opponents, come to the café/bar Frappé. It is located on 3900 boulevard St-Laurent.
It was not easy and nobody expected it to be. Yet, Germany earned a 1:0 victory and three points against Portugal on Saturday, but the way it was achieved was surprising.
We are about to get the satisfaction of watching the German national team playing its first game of the Euro tournament on Saturday. I expect the wings to have a lot to say on both sides of the pitch.
2012 will be a make or break year for the German national team. Many of its players have been involved in finals and semi-finals both at club and international levels, falling inches short of titles. They have yet to meet expectations.
