When Sweden broke why did Larsson decide to foul some German miles from the ball? Then what was Forsberg doing with his pass to the keeper???? Then what was that substitute doing giving away the foul on the edge of the area when he had cover???? AAAARRRRGGGHHH - that was rubbish - do they think they're English?
Definitely not English...
Indeed - they gave Germany a hard game.
I am so angry right now I might as well be Swedish. Why is it ALWAYS Germany??? Heartbreakers. Hungary, Holland, Poland, France, England, Algeria, Sweden.... why is it always bloody Germany???*
*And for the avoidance of doubt this may sound like an anti-German rant (and it is ) but only because I want them to lose so much because of how successful they are as a footballing nation and all the hearts they seem to break along the way. But to be clear, the German national team is just incredible and has been since forever .
By and large, I just tend to cheer on the underdogs. I mean, Braintree Town supporter here...
I enjoy watching good football though and do not likely dirty play from anyone. Overall, I have seem some entertaining games at this world cup and the drama tonight was a lot of fun.
Exactly, as a neutral I think that is natural and certainly my stance on games not involving England (or the home countries). But that is why Germany are so often the villain of the piece to me - not because I have anything against Germany or Germans (far from it) - but because they are rarely, if ever, the underdog in football.
