MIROSLAV KLOSE!!! Onwards to become the greatest scorer in World Cups of all time!

And, of course, a header. He lost a really easy one a little earlier, but has redeemed himself now. 2-0 Germany!

Indeed. I think the Germans don't like it that much. :P

I'm not sure if the ball was to blame in this case. It seemed like poor goalkeeping to me. He dived forward rather than going to the corner and I thought one of the most important things for a goalie was to always get your body behind the ball.

Indeed, Green's one might have had a little help from the ball, but this one was just a plain mistake from the goalie...

Oh. Shit. It seems I had written off the German's far too early based on their relatively poor showings in recent years and the loss of their captain, not to mention a built in dislike of all things German. Easily the best 45 minutes I've seen from any team so far this tournament- I'd be surprised if they didn't get 4 or 5 from here.

Aussies have bigger games to come- they're points need to come from the other two sides, the Germans are going to walk this group playing like this, and it will take a hell of a team to stop them in the later rounds.

Germany's winning, didn't see that coming.

/sarcasm

But honestly Germany is looking very good I'll bet money on them making it to the top 4 teams, at least.

Also even though I'm not a fan of South Korea I'm sure they're going to make it pretty far also.

I think 5 - 0 and then we should have a "mercy rule". :P

Really, Germany has exceeded my (and everyone's) expectations. Sure, Australia doesn't have a great team, but they are being steam-rolled over! Plus, Cacau scored, and he was born in Brazil, so yay! :P

Yeah, best match of the cup so far, and there's still 15 minutes left. 5-0, maybe?

So far this is the best game of the tournament. Typical of Germany to humilliate thier opponents on their first game. Maybe if Australians spent less time bitching over nonexistant offsides, they could concentrate on playing football.

Still not over though... Germany can score more goals, lol.

mine as well i expected a 2-0 or maybe a 3-1 game if Australia got lucky but 4-0 is just pathetic and yah it might end up 5-0 although Germany looks like they're not really trying as hard after that 4th goal.

Congrats to our neighbors on this flawless victory. You guys have been the only ones thus far who have not disappointed (beside South-Korea maybe).

Also, this is definitely the most enjoyable match of the WC until now. I'm hoping for a fifth, or a 4-1 maybe to make the 'socceroos' look less embarrassing.

So do you think it could be a German or Spanish or Brazilian win this year? I think that England will make it to the Quarters or maybe even semi's if we're lucky

the way i see it the top teams will be:

Germany, since they have a good history with 3 world cups and they always make it pretty far.
Brazil, since they have 5 world cups and have appeared in every world cup(i might be wrong on that one)
South Korea they looked really good in the last game they played
England because i'm a fan

Yeah that's the way i feel with england, though it's not just blind optimism with england, we have some good players and Green just made a critical slip up...

You think South Korea is better than The Netherlands?

I don't really care for either team but i suppose I'll have to watch them play tomorrow before i could answer that, also I can believe that I left Italy out of that list.

Well that was impressive, all the more reason for England to go all out attack against Algeria on Friday and do everything they can to get top spot. Hopefully Germany won't look so good against more physical sides in Ghana and Serbia.

I hate to say it, but without Cahill the Aussies are as good as gone. It will be a miracle if they can recover from that to beat the other two sides in the group.

We have already had the luck with the draw. If we top our group we avoid all of the tournament favourites until the semi finals. Meanwhile Germany will have to get past Argentina in the quarters (we'll have one of South Korea, France, Mexico, Uruguay etc.). Our tough match would be round two against (most likely) Ghana. I'm still confident we can make the semis.

blindly confident

South Korea looked good against the Greeks.... just sayin'

I'd say Germany, Netherlands, Spain, Brazil, and Argentina are the class of the tournament.

Also: Mexico, Paraguay, and Cameroon as sleepers.

Not a suprising result imo, by far the most entertaining game so far.
Looks like Germany are going to have an interesting world cup.

Hopefully this is the start of some better games. It has been very disappointing so far with only results like 1-0, 2-0 1-1, etc.

"sub-top" is putting it really nicely. They where relegated this season. ^^

I hope Netherlands win against Denmark tomorrow. Hopefully there will be a match Germany against Netherlands later in the tournament. There's nothing better if Germany wins against Netherlands in the finals. :P

Germany-Australia was definitely an improvement on previous games like everyone's been saying.

There's not much more I can add. It's good that Germany were just as interested as playing further after taking the lead rather than just leaving it as, erm, certain other teams seemed to have done. Australia have it in them to do better against Serbia and Ghana I think, but losing Cahill was no good (I think the ref generally made the right decision, going by the tougher rules being implemented) - they need to work around that. That early chance of theirs could've changed the game somewhat, but the Germans were always going to be the better side here. I'd put them high on my predictions table.

I think the second place has blown quite wide open in Group D though.

Also, was this the first time in the tournament a ref went after players for what they seem to be referring to as 'simulation'? It worked, in my opinion. It was more enjoyable to watch when they weren't trying to break into acting constantly.

Best game of the tournament so far. Germany is looking pretty strong, great team as always.

And finally, vuvuzelas have been banned from stadiums, due to Tv broadcasters complains.
I really dont mind the noise, but I'm pretty sure people there was sick about them, heard about people with really bad headaches, and about players struggling to hear their coach instructions.
