Does anyone know if Germany was in 2011 FIFA U-20 World Cup Colombia? If they were, were they kicked out? And was the game against Brazil - was it a qualifier, or a U-20 game, or something else?

Good defense from Costa Rica, and Congrats to Colombia. I wonder what would happen in a game between Colombia and Germany.

The guys had been celebrating the sacking of senior coach Bolillo Gomez and had to play with a hangover, that's why didn't win easier.
