First, Lukas Podolski took a cross beautifully passed through the box and hammered it home.
Then, Miroslav Klose flew through the box and headed in his 11th career World Cup goal. That put him behind just Ronaldo, Gerd Muller, Just Fontaine, and Pele on the career World Cup scoring list, and put Die Mannschaft up 2-0.
The aggressive attack is a new look on Germany, but it looks good; though it remains a two-goal advantage at the half, it could have easily been 4-0 or 5-0, with the Germans gutting the Socceroos' defense time and again.â†µ
