In before... "Trapattoni looked a lot younger back then."

For those who don't get the reference, he coached the Italian national team in '04.

Italians and diving would always have been in the same sentence back then.

I've noticed things change over the years, but everybody else in this thread haven't...LOL :lol:

According to Bild.de - Klose, Reus and Schurrle will start in the places of Gomez, Podolski and Muller.

JOGI BAUT DIE MANNSCHAFT UM! Neben Klose rücken auch André Schürrle (für Lukas Podolski im linken Mittelfeld) und Marco Reus (für Thomas Müller im rechten Mittelfeld) in die Startelf!


I think it's a good move. Podolski and Muller weren't getting it done and I think Klose can do the job against Greece.

Wonder why Gomez is off today.

Boateng should be starting tonight.

As for Gomez, they're either taking a risk and resting him or they think Klose can be more effective against the Greeks. I think the other two moves are good ones, and Klose was the starter throughout qualifying so it's not too unusual.

Hoping that those changes don't affect Germany's play.

They just collapse and when hope for a ball to spring their attackers on the way.
