Germany was fortunate to defeat Nigeria 1-0, because the Nigerians beat the shit out of the Geman players. I've never seen so many fouls allowed in one game in my life. Germany showed class by not responding in kind. They were lucky to escape with a 1-0 win and their lives. OTOH, the German players were taken out of their game by the close marking by the Nigerians. Something for other teams to think about, but please do it with a lot more skill and finesse.
My sympathy to Canada for not advancing. My best to them in their last game of the tournament against a Nigerian team that is also not advancing.
Group A is over even if there is one more round of games to go. Now on to Group B tomorrow to see what transpires there.
