Well, with Villa out of the final and Ballack possibly out it will be very interesting how the game will go. Fabregas has to start the match after amazing peformances against Italy and Russia. Spain were looking abit boring until Fabregas came on, but I think Fabregas will play a big role tomorrow if he starts, well he has to start! As for those lucky Germans I dont think they will have a leg to stand on tomorrow. I can see attacking Spain causing mayhem for the German defence. I think Spain will win in regular time, but I have this feeling it will go to penalties, very typical German style.

Man I can't find the post I made which labelled me saying that Spain and Germany would be in the final and how Greece, France, and Holland were nowhere close. Damn I wanted to brag about that :wink: :x

Anyways, I think look for these key players:
- Cesc Fabregas
- Miroslav Klose
- Philip Lahm
- Basten Schweinsteiger
- POSSIBLY Neuville

Well, without my team captain I think my team might have a much lesser chance of winning. But they've done it be4 so I'm still (relatively) confident that they can win. If they don't then I hope Silva and Fabregas dominate it for Spain.

only cesc for spain? What about casillas, puyol, silva and senna? All those four have been remarkably consistent this tournament.

Haha I'm thinking in an offensive POV. I know Silva is a threat, but I have yet to see how versatile he can be on either sides of the pitch and his right foot of course, and Germany's strength comes from its wings and that'll be hard for Silva to tread.

true, sergio ramos has to be very careful of podolski's runs down the left wing.

I could see Sergio shutting down Poldi for most of the game.

Podolski will have a couple of counter attacks where he will break from Ramos, but I think Puyol could come over and step in there.

My prediction is 2 - 2 at the end of 90 minutes.

6 - 5 for Spain on Penalties.

Goals From:

Fabrégas
Xabi Alonso

Schweinsteiger
Klose

im quite torn between the two :(

on one hand i like the spanish style, their players and the spanish league, and i want them to finally win somthing

on the other hand i put money on germany before the tournament (which is a strong arguement) £20 ($40) at 4/1

however ive also got 20 quid on villa to be top scorer at 9/1 which is worth alot more, im just hoping podolski doesnt score or ballack or schweinsteiger get a hat trick :lol:


who i think will win... hmm germany

i dont want it to be, but i think the game could be decided by power and height

the germans are huge and will cause alot of problems at set peices, the spanish will have to work hard to limit these

in the middle of the park, well apart from senna the spanish are very small in the middle up against ballack frings rolfes, whoever plays are all 6 footers, i think fabregas may have to track back to help cope with this which may limit torres support

on the plus side, both defences are very poor, could be alot of goals :lol:

the german centre backs are terrible and could be exploited be torres pace if he gets a chance and with lahm and ramos playing on the same side there wont be much defending going on for either team :wink:

cant wait :D

Hah ScottyBoy I'm in the same position as you are but I think I'll still cheer for my team even though I feel neutral at the moment. And Spain's defense has been stronger than Germany's, especially toward the middle, so Germany will have to work fast and efficiently in order to put the defense out of position.

Yup its official Ballack will be starting for germany. I still think Germany will win on pk's after a 2-2 game. Chad Barret is supporting Spain (i know him :D )

Enrique? I think we all know who he wants to win. Did any of you know his dad was a Goalkeeper for Real Madrid's u-18 team.

Should be a great game, but intro is really annoying.

I'm not happy!

Well done Spain, 44 years.

BTW Looking at Platini holding the trophy with just one hand makes it look so cheap :(
