Time for the fireworks!
(though, if Klose would be kind enough to not score, I'd appreciate it)
These guys are getting physical. Interesting rollover by one of the Italians.
Italy is currently getting the best of it. We'll have to see what the second half brings.
So close for Germany!
These guys need to stop taking dives. :grumpy:
And what's this grabbing the head business?
Heck I kissed ball a few times - didn't stop to worry about it!
Overtime . . .
I suppose. The ref (more or less) gave Italy the chance to go into overtime.
I was thinking up through half-time. There was quite a bit of contact and diving - and refs made some good calls.
Ouch. Italy is pretty unlucky now...
So close! Twice for Italy! Right post, then cross bar.
Germany feels the pressure.
Podolski loses it! 2nd OT.
Podolski should have scored that late chance! That was a free header so close to the goal. I hope this game doesn't go to penalties.
Wow! Amazing game!
Wow, it's getting hot now...
And another !!!!!!!!!!!!!! Majestic stuff from Italy
2-0 Del Piero!!!
Another goal italy wins!!!
Grosso off Pirlo!
Now another Gooooaaaal! Italy!
Awww, all the german fans are crying now........HAAAAAA HAAAA!
Wow! The best two minutes of the WC! The goalkeepers, however, were the pick of the lot...great saves.
what a game!
Why did they bring in Del Piero so late? He always fires up the game!
Good finish by Italy. Methinks the Fates smiled upon them for playing 2 hrs without excessively throwing the elbow.
