After watching so many football matches over 4 decades, this was just a very fortunate day for Japan somehow enabling to defeat Germany in a.e.t.

So disgusting, Germany isn`t fine. The last team was superbe. I think Popp should play more minutes

I did not see the entire match, and I was very surprised that Prinz benching continued... you simply do not sit that caliber of player. But the highlighs I saw, that was not the German team I am accustom to seeing. Japan seemed to be running well off the ball! Good Game Japan, Beat Sweden and we'll see you in Frankfurt!!! Good Job Rising Run!
