Miroslav Klose being sent off for the Germans really affected them.  He shouldn't have been, but Podolski's penalty miss spelled the end for Germany.  If anyone had to be substituted it was him; he never got over it.  Instead Germany made the wrong choice in substitutions and paid the price.

In the last game of the day, the worst performance by an England team I've ever seen.  The Algerians played a lot better in the second half than the first, unfortunately they had no attacking plan.
