That's quite a goal! A total fluke but that's what makes it even better hehe.

German Cup Final: werder Bremen vs. Leverkusen, Bremen won 1:0 in regular time.

I had hoped for another half hour of soccer to view with the way Leverkusen passed the last 30 minutes (they played soccer, finally, the first half of the match was hurting), but even if it smelled like any second the goal would score, they had bad luck. OTOH, the goal from Bremen was sung 10 secs before it entered, a great strategic move and excellent execution: Özil showed that he has future.

well I had hoped for a penalty shotout because both teams played good soccer. The shot from Özil was redirected from the defender- bad luck for them otherwise Adler would have kept his goal clear...
Helmes didn't score one big chance- he would have scored in this situation 9 out of 10 times! To my mind Leverkusen has amazing good young players and mostly Germans- which is today rare to see with a top team. But Werder did deserve it, they played great soccer these last months also because of Diego, Pizarro and Özil- so without a UEFA- title and a place amongst the top 5 in the Bundesliga that was well deserved... So now they will be able to play international- I just hope they won't meet Hamburg again :/.

Update from Hamburg- Jol and Olic are gone and there's much discussion about Trochowski and others... I wonder what will happen now- they definitely made some good money- just hope they spend it well...

Another world class player- best and most constant midfielder to my mind:

Ballack


Didn't find a good video about him but Philipp Lahm is the best left back player in the world...

And we have Klose... hey I'm realizing that Germany has some good players ^^- okay nothing compared to England and Spain...
Klose


And check this out- Lukas Podolski even has his own song - who can translate it? ^^

Indeed. German Soccer is not dead yet... (though agonizing)

P.S.: I do not understand how Klose #7 only could make it to #7, for me one of the best I have seen ever and much better than #1 e.g. (cool, taking his time, perfect control and overview, changing feet, etc. ... A classic!). Just FDR, I see Ballack totally overrated compared to others, as well demonstrated vs. Xabi and Iniesta both in club and national team. Maybe he should play a "9" or a "7"...? R.

Well look at Wolfsburg in the second round or Hoffenheim in the first round of the German league... there you have some nice offensive playing- Like Grafite's goal against Bayern Munich.

Klose is underrated outside of Germany.
