Euro 2012 Germany vs Denmark match is scheduled to be played later today. With Germans putting their best foot forward, their win is a foregone conclusion if they don’t really make a major mistake, says H Anjum of NVONews.com
Euro 2012 is witnessing some great setbacks for great teams. Russia has been booted out from the tournament despite the fact that they put their best foot forward. Greece brought their Euro Cup soccer dream to an abrupt end.
Another big disappointment for soccer fans was an unexpected defeat of one of the best soccer teams not just in Europe but across the world, Netherlands. No one thought that Denmark was capable to inflict such a defeat to a soccer powerhouse like Netherlands, but they did and did in style.
Though statistics don’t really show how Denmark was able to achieve this feat, they attempted far fewer goals than their opponents, but Michael Krohn-Delhi’s goal in the first half of the match was able to do the damage against Netehrlands. And they failed to convert their more aggressive efforts into goals. For soccer fans it was shocking. But soccer is known for similar setbacks and we may be witness to more similar shocks in the days to come.
Meanwhile German soccer team is able to present a very powerful image so far in the tournament. They have played two games –both against tough teams –and have won both the matches comprehensively. They don’t seem to be deterred by the fact that their team hasn’t won a single trophy since their win at 1996 European Championships. But the sort of performance they are giving in match after match has reaffirmed their belief that they are on course to win euro 2012.
The way their top players have performed throughout the tournament is a perfect sign that they are following a well thought out plan. Lukas Podolski, Bastian Schweinsteiger, Miroslav Klose are players who can beat any team when it is their day. And euro 2012 seems to be the perfect place to show their soccer prowess to the world.
Miroslav Klose is so dexterous that he can ensure the win singlehandedly and whenever he scores in a match, his team always wins. And now it seems that he is well prepared to score goals in almost every other match and when he is not able to goal, there are others who contribute and their team wins. He has contributed as many as 16 goals in important international tournaments. One of the best known German soccer players, he has 116 appearances for his national team and has scored as many as 63 goals. Just a handful of other soccer players can claim to have achieved such glory in international soccer.
Today the German team is set to face a resurgent Denmark. Even if they draw the match, Germany will enter quarterfinals of the tournament. This year they want to beat the hot favorites Spain and not many doubt their claim.
