    Had a goodnight sleep. Woke up to hear the unbelievable news. Italy got thrashed up by Spain 0-4 in the finals of Euro 2012. Mario Balotelli is no super Mario afterall. The Germany players should emulate the Spanish players in future tournaments. It would have been a more interesting match if Germany had played against Spain in the final match. Mario Gomez is still the super Mario 'cos he has a class and style of his own on the field. Lady Luck forgot to help Germany in the semifinals. Hope luck goes to them in future matches.

    I truly feel sorry for my favorite Germany players in Euro 2012. Although you lost in the semifinals, you emerged the winner of the hearts of the majority of the football fans. The Germany team is a very clean team in the history of football. Cheer up my favorite players. You can still play in the next tournament to grab the championship if you all keep yourselves fit and focused. Better luck the next time.

    Oh no! Sob...sob...! What happened to the Germany players? Losing to Italy in the semifinals of Euro 2012 in a humiliating way. Mario Gomez didn't run enough for the ball like how he used to play for Bayern Munich. Even Klose couldn't put in a goal when he substituted Gomez. What happened to the darling players like Lahm, Muller, Khedira and Schweinsteiger? The defence was weak and so the King Kong of Italy triumphed with 2 goals. Joachim Low needs to change his strategy. He didn't utilize Mario Gomez's talent to the maximum. Gomez should be made to run for the ball and not only depend on other players to pass the ball to him. My yellow card to the German coach. Now I don't care who wins in the final match. I have something better to do.....zzzzzz.....

    After watching the unbelievable match between Spain and Portugal in the semifinals, I wonder if Germany (my favorite team) would make it to the finals to meet Spain. But having such good German team for tonight against Italy, the Italians will be panting throughout the match. Good luck to Gomez ( my favorite player) and the other stunning players. Please don't let down your fans.
