Germany is looking pretty mediocre so far. Lot's of giveaways in the midfield.

Anyone have a link? ESPN 3 is blocked here and the univision link, which had worked perfectly all tournament, is now telling me I need a newer version of Adobe flash (I can't install it).

Game starting to open up. Germany on a breakaway, but stopped by the Ghanaian GK. Ghana returns with a shot that blocked at the far post by Lahm.

Germany with a real chance on the FK.

Funny thing about the Ghana-Germany game. Both sides must be thinking they'd rather finish second, instead of winning the group. Rightly or wrongly, they'd rather play the USA over England. Plus, they'd have the easier route to the semis. Whichever team wins this group will have to beat England, and then play the winner of Argentina-Mexico.

Fortunately, neither team is assured of advancing, so they should have to play to win.

Not sure what team the USA will play, but have 100% confidence that Messi will make Mexican defenders looks like orange traffic cones.

except for australia these are the last 3 teams to knock us out of the Cuo. Serbia (and montenegro) in '98 (where their fans booed during our anthem), germany in '02 (the handball that wasn't) and ghana in '06 (the penalty that shouldnt have been).

That goal probably eliminates Germany as the USA opponent.

Schwarzer spills. Serbians pull one back. Germany not doing Oz any favors. Whaever happened to Low's plan to humiliate Germany's opponents?

Will the Serbs pull it off?

I thought they fired Low and replaced him with Bryan Ferry . . .
