Costa Rica are not doing bad, they are showing how poor the german defence can be. Pablo Wanchop is using his experiance and he is making some good runs on to the ball and nearly getting one on ones with the keeper. That is where Costa Rica goals are going to come from i think.

The Costa Rica goal keeper isn't that bad ethier i think, he is getting the balls from long range shots and getting in the way of them.

Come on costa rica get 2 goals show how poor the germans are!

I should of added Klose to the top scorers poll, he did get a hatrick in the last World Cup against Saudi Arabia.

They need to improve (The Germans) or they won't get past round 2.

Germany needs to improve on defense

Ballack wasn't playing today, but he should be back for the next game i think

I agree.

Costa Rica attacked 2 times and scored 2 times.

Imo, one weak presentation from the Germans.

The german defence was pretty poor. But i'm sure costa rica would be delighted with the 2 goals because i know i am!

We say the defence is poor but we don't know what the attacking is like because no offence to costa rica there defence wasn't great.

Man of the match for me had to be the costa rica goal keeper, i loved him! he put so much effort in to the game to keep it only 4 goals. that 4th goal it looked like he nearly got the tips of his fingers to it. Would of been an amazing save if he got it thou!

Very good opening game, with some amazing goals from the germans. I agree that they won't make it very far with a defence like that.

Yeah first game, first win! But your totally right, our defense acted very very poor... but I think they'll improve it.

It was a very good opening game. If this sets the tone for the rest of the tournament, we are up for a treat (Y)
