Certainly, Varys - but they need to start attacking!
It won't help Portugal, that's for sure - and the injuries will open up Portugal.
Two minutes of injury time...
Wahey! Eder puts the ball in the net! Albeit, some 10 seconds after the referee had blown for a foul
Ronaldo strikes a free kick cleanly but the Germany keeper is up to it, beating the ball away with strong hands.
Ronaldo kept a room full of journalists waiting for over an hour last night. I'd imagine that they are laughing their heads off now.
FULL-TIME! Germany 4-0 Portugal
Or should I say, Poor-tugal...
Wow. Portugal aim at their feet and open up with both barrels. That is a catastrophic result and it opens up the door for Ghana and the US. They are in trouble.
But have you ever see a team look as polished and composed in their first game as Germany did? They look in fine fettle.
Eder is 26 and plays for Braga. He worked very hard, it must be said
@Adam: 12 matches at this World Cup without a draw, this is the latest we have gone in a World Cup without a draw since 1930.
Bristolian, I'm here for the next game then handing over to JT.
And for those of you asking about Iran, I think Ashkan Dejagah will be dangerous today. He showed plenty of skill at Fulham last season.
