    Congratulations Moustic! I hope you enjoyed the celebration. In the end I don't think France played to their potential (scary thought ), but the amount of talent they have was too much for Croatia.

    If I remember correctly, you stabbed me in the back and rooted for Argentina the last time, allez Croatie! [emoji1082] In all seriousness though, France is the clear favorite. Croatia had to go to overtime 3 times, just to get past 3 second class opponents. Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk

    I was referring to the opening loss against Algeria. The were so sure they could blow them away, they didnt bother to prepare for the game. They were dumbfounded to find an Algerian team that knew how to play. That German team was stacked, but poorly coached. Denmark played a great tournament. They just don't have a player like Modrić

    I don't see how Löw can stay. With the exception of 1982, I have never seen A German team go so unprepared into a WC. They always knew how they wanted to play and the team always looked better the the sum of the individuals. I think the success got to his head. He ignored all signs and just assumed his core players would show up when needed. Even though Neuer hadn't played all season, he guaranteed him the starting job. That must have been a slap in the face for Ter Stegen, who had a great season. The fact that Leroy Sané didn't fit Löw's style of play, shows how messed up his game plan was.

    Löws' mistake was that he relied way too long on the 2014 core of players. Even though the signs were there before the WC, he trusted that they would be back to form once the WC started. Now he is finding himself rebuilding the team on the fly. The problem with Müller is not his positioning, its his form. He has been playing below his best for 2 years now. Werner is in the lineup because of his speed. Löw likes to keep the ball low and play quick. Werner hasn't been that effective because everyone is parking the bus against Germany. Gomez was brought in as an hail mary and Werner replaced Draxler on the wing where he did a great job using is speed. Both German goals came from the left side. Germany still has a lot of work to do. I'm afraid these adjustments are coming too late. They should have been made during the training camp

    While I want Germany to repeat, my money is on Spain. They looked scary good in a friendly against Germany recently. Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk
