Highly boring game tbh. For as great as the group rounds are, is for as disappointing the playoff rounds are.

Absolutely disappointing effort from France. They had everything needed to compete in this game. Instead, they allowed Germany to play only as much as they needed to.

In a game like this, it's about moments. French players like Benzama, Pogba, and Griesmann failed to take theirs. Worst of all, they showed no fighting spirit after such misses, but despondency.

DeChamps evidently couldn't inspire his team.

Whoever said whimper said it best.

Germany got a pass in this one. Der Mannschaft literally cruised. But I will say this: I don't think they could beat Brazil in a semifinal. Just don't see it.

Cheers, Mate


Mate, please stop sounding like a Naijarian.

The better team won!

Just give them credit...

:?: :?: :?:

The round of 16 had exciting games apart from maybe the argentina game.

It's to be expected, much more at stake.....closely matched teams, more tactical awareness and much fewer mistakes.

Please do not let anyone hear you..someone will come and tell you it was tactical masterpiece. I am just glad the next game in this grouping will be Brazil/Colombia vs Germany...

I am not surprised it was boring when two European top sides meet it is always some cagey boring game ending in 1-0 or so

Agree.. as stakes get higher, expect a more cagey affair.. Still expected the french to go all in from like 20-25th min.. they just looked like they lacked ideas..

A tight, controlled and tactically detailed game, in which nobody wanted to open up, take risks and push the envelope.

Germany had the lead and the onus was on the French to chase the game.

Deschamps would only gamble so much, as has always been his nature.

Was he valid to do this? Depends on your point of view...

Its the aspect of the European game I've never agreed with...

I understand why coaches drop players in favor of team unity. But its still a failure of management.

Argentina sweated to beat the Swiss, in a game a Carlos Tevez coming from the bench would've blown open!

Today the French needed Nasri.

Instead all Deschamps could do was bring in Geroud and Remy...

No ref. No injury. No African opposition to rob. Tactical reaction impaired.

The German team is tactically very good and flexible. You have to really beat them to knock them out. If for example, France took the lead the German would have mounted more of a challenge, and created chances.

analyzer, but the bobo tried now....on that french squad, who else try pass am today? if you give everything and lose, the emotions come flowing like that. Poor pikin, i feel for am.

They need to blame their coach. Funny, deschamps used to show the same ineptness at marseille when push came to shove.

Germany won without leaving gear 3.

Deschamps was overly cautious, he did same versus Nigeria. I noted that during the game. It's same issue he had at Marseille. I think if he opened up, he'd have been in trouble, the Germans have the sort of players who know how to use space, forget their lack of pace, they let the ball work.

I wouldn't put this on the absence of Nasri. More the absence of Ribery. Nasri is notorious for disappearing too and when you add his bad spirit, not worth it.

Even with what he had, he could have been tactically more daring. He clammed up today big time.

Nostradamus Mr. mmeny :p

Yes it was boring, sorry much of the game was simply played in the midfield and not on either end. It was BORING. I was NOT entertained much unlike the group stages when both teams simply wanted to go at it. "High stakes" okay fine high stakes, but no team played as tenaciously as they did in the group stage. More cautious usually equates to more boring.
