Mike makes a very, very good point.
Well, two rousing anthems, and we're moments away from kick-off!
And a 1-1 draw that will lead us inexorably towards a penalty shoot-out.
The more I look at this, the more I think that France's midfield is going to dominate.
KICK-OFF! France 0-0 Germany

2" - Germany are stroking the ball about early doors here. It looks very, very hot out there - expect many cramps and some wilting later on.
