Germany 4 - 2 Costa Rica

Yes!! The World Cup has begin!!!
I bet lots of ppl would sacrifice sleeping time to watch the first match of the tournament. The host nation, Germany VS the central America country, Costa Rica.
Many favour the Germans but do not under-estimate the Costa Ricans, they're quite good to suprise the world.

So... GMT+8 0000, kick off!!

No need to wait for long time for the first goal. Lahm, the German left back blast the ball into the top corner of the goal from the edge of the penalty box. Executed to the perfection!

Also, we dont really need to wait too long for the second goal. After a smart play by the Costa Rica players to play Paulo Wanchope, the ace man to run through 4 defenders and score past Lehmann. Bad defense by the Germans.

The German scores the 3rd goal of the game by Miroslav Klose, who normally scores with his head. I like this guy very much, because of him I tried to learn how to head the ball properly. This time we scores with this left foot from Bastian S7's pass.

After the 2nd half, the Germans struck again. Podolski's cross from the left finds Klose to head on target, and then converting the goal with this right foot. 2nd goal for Klose on his birthday. Yay. Was looking foward for him to score hat-trick like what he did during WC 2002 againts Saudi Arabia.

Then again, Wanchope struck to make the game 3-2. Yet again, 4 defenders cannot stop the dangerous striker. Do a feint and shot pass Lehmann. Game on.

But just few minutes before the final wistle, Bastian S7 make a wonderful past to Frings from freekick and Frings blast the ball into the net in style. Very very beautiful shot, so far away from the penalty box, really is a rocket ball.

End of the game, Germany 4, Costa Rica 2.

Bad defend by the Germans, but I can see Costa Rica play better with other teams.
