Germany Shut Down Poland

I haven’t had a chance to watch the match yet. From what I’ve read, it looks like I can just skip to stoppage time. Germany’s defense must have been better in the 1-0 win that effectively knocks Poland out of the competition.

There were apparently hundreds of arrests before the match. No surprise there. That’ll give the American media something to harp on anyway. Finally, something happened in the World Cup that they can all actually understand–thanks to the skinheads.

If this wasn’t a fluke, and Germany actually has some semblence of a defense, they’ll be tough at home. There’s nothing wrong with the attacking side of their game. I’m not sold, yet, but I’ll go give it a butcher’s.
