That was just a miscarriage of justice...I guess the Italians really needed the help (Frings suspension, non-call on the hand ball...oh Post Scriptum, I forgot the foul call in the 82nd that happened well in the area, but mysteriously led to a free kick from outside the box, good stuff!). That being said, the Italian bench outplayed the German bench, Schweinsteiger and Ballack capping underwhelming performances at the tournament with a humongous defensive meltdown at the end, two minutes from a slam-dunk German victory in penalty kicks.
All things considered, I agree with the predictions - France over Italy, Germany over Portugal.
