Update on Germany: There still seems to be a bit of chaos and panic here. More injured key players and some new blood coming in at the last minute.
The media here is getting some milage out of it, and poking fun at the mess. Example headline from today when the newest version of new captain and the newest goalkeeper were announced
"Lahm KapitÃ¤n und Neuer Torwort!"
This is a word play in German: The new captainÂ´s name is Lahm, but the word means "cripple", and Neuer is the name of the new goalkeeper and really means "new", so you can read the headline as "Crippled Captain and New Goalkeeper"
Problem number 173 is, Kuranyi...who was kicked off the team a couple of years ago for deciding to go home after being told he was not selected for some minor game. The real story is the trainer just doesnÂ´t like him...and says we have enough good players so we donÂ´t need him. Problem is, Kuranyi is probably the BEST striker in Germany at the moment, and they DO need him. They may have to suck it up and put him in at the last minute :bigsmile: I hope they have to beg him to join, and he tells them where they can put their willies! Hehe!!!
ThatÂ´s where we are at over here....and I still think Germany has a chance. Am I the only one?
