Euro 2012: Germany vs Greece Quarter Final
The second Euro 2012 quarter final was between Germany and Greece. The media made it into a economic powerhouse vs bankrupt nation game, but for the 22 players on the field only scoring or preventing goals were of any importance. Germany were the heavy favorites and throughout the 90 minutes they showed us why. Slick passing, excellent positional play and 4 goals scored against a very stubborn Greek defence. To be fair, the Greeks were never in with a shout in this game. They're just too poor to make it count against a young and hungry team such as this Germany, who could go on to win it in my opinion.
