Germany 0 Italy 2

I've been meaning to post something more on last night's game, but instead I'll point to a couple of tech bloggers who've written about it, namely Matthew Langham who explains how Germany won even though the team lost, and Tim Bray who says it was what soccer was meant to be.

My thought as it ended was the fastest 118 minutes of scoreless soccer I've ever watched, and that it was a game to remember for a couple of decades, since (due to tournament seedings) good teams face one another so seldom in in non-friendlies. The last time Germany and Italy met in a World Cup was the first Cup I closely watched (and rooted for Germany), the final in 1982.
