Germany 4 Australia 0

What a great game of football! Both teams got off to a frantic start with chances falling at both ends. Before the 5-minute mark, Australia had had a corner, a shot at goal and had been denied a goal by a Neuer moment of magic. Germany replied, in lethal fashion.

Miroslav Klose went close, then gained a corner and a minute later, Muller set up Podolski (FIFA man of the match) for a fantastic shot from the edge of the area, screaming past Australian keeper Schwarzer into the back of the net. 1-0 on 8’ to Germany.

Australia did not create a moment of real danger until 20’, when Emerton ran down the right and crossed to Culina, who headed over. Klose could have done better in front of goal on 24’ but two minutes later, scored Germany’s second, heading home from the right of the area. For the rest of the first half, Germany managed the result.

The Socceroos came out of the tunnel more determined and after two corners, had a penalty claim turned down, then on 52’ Holman shot just wide. However Germany came back, Muller firing two shots at goal on 54’. On 56’ Australia’s Cahill was the first player in the tournament to receive a direct red card for a horrendous tackle on Schweinsteiger.

That was the end for Australia. On 61’, Ozil and Klose tested Schwarzer, on 62’ it was Podolski and the 3-0 came after 68’: Muller. Cacau entered, substituting Klose and two minutes later, scored Germany’s fourth. 4-0, 70’. End of game.
