We've been rubbish so far, Mexcio have been much better than us. I'm so pleased for Ledley though, he's much better than John Terry is (seriously) and lovely to see two Tottenham lads create and score the goal.

These are our Orange 4

I hope they perform and go forward this time. They have the talent they have the team, but they need some luck

And a defence, which I'm not sure they have. They're a very good side though and their draw's quite good, I'd expect semi-finals for them.

With our centreback you won't become World Champion. But the individuel class that our forwards have, anything is possible.

And Germany is placing themselves in the underdog position now that Ballack is out. But they will be strong anyhow, they always are, even when they have had a bad qualication. They are a Tournament Squad. When you think they have no chance at all of winning the European/World Cup, then look who's suddenly in the semi-final.

German Midfielders:

Michael Ballack, 33 years old, Chelsea FC (out)
Sami Khedira, 23 years old, VfB Stuttgart
Toni Kroos, 20 years old, Bayer Leverkusen
Marko Marin, 21 years old, Werder Bremen
Mesut Özil, 21 years old, Werder Bremen
Bastian Schweinsteiger Bayern Munich
Christian Träsch, 22 years old, VfB Stuttgart (out)
Piotr Trochowski, 26 years old, Hamburger SV

It is all set that Sami Khedira will take Ballack's role

Analysts are predicting a big Future for Mesut Ozil

Khedira will replace Ballack, and change the positions of some players especially Schweinsteiger and Lahm.

Go Holland! Bert v Marwijk wants experiment with some players and the Champions League Final players will not participate in this match. Watch Anita, he's a big talent from the Netherlands :)
