    And they're goint to be able to keep pace well into the game since they live and train at altitude. This is looking like the first (minor) upset of the cup.

    really??? In midfield Poland are beating them, but upfront they are still the best side..

    Edit:Miss-read your post... yeh you are right!

    Ok I know enough...

    Equador will win this group, Poland second Germany third.

    My reasoning.. Equador are very good on the counter, Poland are very strong at the back. I dont think Germany will score heavy against Poland and Poland will score against them easy enough.. Equador are strong enough at the back to keep out germany, and are excelent at the counter...

    Poland were very bad, i thought. Disorganized and without ideas, but credit to Ecuador's defense.
    I don't believe Poland will beat Germany, even if Germany's defense is weaker than that which Ecuador put out today, since Poland play a similar style to Germany. On the other hand i wouldn't be surprised to see Ecuador upset Germany.
    I'm watching the games on ESPN2 and Univision. Univision is actually playing every single match (ESPN2 isn't playing England-Paraguay but Univision is), but you have to be willing to put up with all the hysteria. :smile:

    Honestly Equador beating Germany would be an upset. Most pundits here belive this is the worst German team for a long time, they dont deseve those 3 Stars!

    IMO Poland were very well organsised at the back, I know this seems ironic because 2 goals were scored against them, but this (Equador) is the country that came third to Argentina and Brasil in the south American Group Zone. They even stuffed Argentina 2:0 in June Last Year.

    Poland are beter defensively than DE, but probably lack a bit up front. However as we saw in the closing minutes they can attack. Poland have it right at the back Germany dont, this is why I see them beating Germany.
