Tonight Germany is a guest in the new Wembley stadium in England.

There are test games, there are friendship-games, and there is Germany - England...

I think this is worth enough discussion in a thread.

My guess is: ENG - GER 0 : 3  Wink

Is it true Germany is going in sans Klose, Ballack, Frings, Podolski, and Friedrich?

it was reported in a newspaper during a past world cup, that if england are playing 1966 will be mentioned within the first 10 minutes. If england are not playing 1966 will be mentioned at some point before half time.

Correct, and you can add Schweinsteiger and Gomez to that list as well.

Now, I normally would of course be rooting for a victory by Germany, but when I look at the list of talent missing, and the fact that Lehmann has made two embarrassing mistakes in his 2 recent games for Arsenal, I'm certainly not too confident.

It's an exhibition match. Who gives a shit?

At the end of the day, England will lose. Not because they have some of their best players out through various injuries (Gerrard, Hargreaves for example), but because of two main reasons:

1. Frank Lampard will be playing, and I have yet to see any sign of him being able to turn it on in an International game. I admire him as a domestic player, but he's hopeless on the international stage. Unfortunately, he'll be given one of the more active roles in midfield, one which can often dictate the flow of the rest of the team.

2. More importantly, we still have the clown McLaren still in charge. With him at the helm, we'll never win anything more than a pat on the back from San Marino's part timers after we beat them by a mere 3-0 (when most teams manage to put 10 or more past them).

R.I.P. England football.

My suggestion: keep things optimistic. England isn't really in top shape either after losing Hargreaves and Rooney to injuries. Plus Beckham, while he's starting to show his skills in the MLS, isn't exactly in top shape either. Yes, we have a problem in the Creative Centre and the Striker positions, but I'm still confident that this is a challenge we can win. Keep the faith in our team, who's going to give us another Sommermärchen in Austria and Switzerland next year. Big grin

Ah yes. The eternal weakness of England's penalty kickers. That alone makes England an embarassment to football.  Wink  duck

England vs Germany is not any exhibition match. It's one of the biggest football classics in the world and even if it is considered only an exhibition match, those two teams will play as if they were in the World Cup final, guaranteed.  Wink

What pisses me off the most about England is that they have this idiot John Terry as captain. The only player who can really be the captain is Steven Gerrard, but I presume he won't play. Gerrard at least knows something of leadership, while Terry is just another Chelski who may only know few things about leading his squad from the locker rooms thanks to José Mourinho.

England should hire Klinsmann as manager and then challenge us to a match at the Westfalenstadion in Dortmund (Germany's own football temple). Then again, Klinsmann may prefer to re-start his coaching career at Tottenham Hotspur, so England can forget about finally getting a world class manager for the senior team.  stirthepot 

My feeling is that Germany will win this game 2:0.  bigthumbsup

Sorry to quote myself, but I stand corrected. Finally, Lumplard steps up. Blinder of a goal.

Has anyone been keeping a "1966" count on the commentators? I turned over just as Owen was about to miss that chance and I'm sure I heard it mentioned twice.
