Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
the German team ... very attacking football in a novel team configuration

I can't find any discussion of this ET; so I spell it out. Methinks Ballack missing out from the WC was the biggest boon to the German team. Ever since Franz "Kaiser" Beckenbauer, it was a dogma that the German team should have a central playmaker. I remember when that role was given to Ballack, more or less against his will. But now that Ballack is gone and a very young team stood on the pitch, what did I see? Two playmakers: Ösil and Müller. And a complex, unpredictable and playful game the Nationalelf is really not famous for. The Aussies tried to isolate Ösil, but that was useless.
