They'd be even scarier with a striker. Actually could have used Raul for this tournament.
Yet today was a message game. This was about claiming a place in history and obliterating Italian mystique.
I would have really liked to see the German squad play Spain. For my money Ozil was the best player in the first 4 matches of the tournament.
The final was a decent game until Italy was forced to go all in trying to score goals with 10 men. Spain blew it open late but I was happy the game was played the way it was. It seems to me that the title game more often than not is pretty boring.
