A great match between two of the European footballing giants and pre-tournament favorites. Fanatastic performance by Bastien and Deco.. great passing and a good tempo brought out one of the best matches of the tournament. Ballack, looking tired after EPL, had the last laugh with the 3rd goal for the Germans. Ronaldo was ineffective and looked like he was caged, struggling to find space from the clutches of his markers. His silence worked in the Germans favor and a well deserved victory for the "underdogs."
