Germany haven't looked very threatening against the Netherlands, and the Oranje have been the better team, creating more chances and dominating proceedings. Crucially, though, they've been unable to take their chances, much like their last game against Denmark. Conversely, Germany only needed one clear chance to take the lead, with Mario Gomez scoring his second goal of the tournament after 24 minutes.
The goal was excellent play from Germany; Thomas Müller took the ball down the right side, before passing to Bastian Schweinsteiger, who had moved forward. Müller continued his run, looking for the one-two, and Mesut Özil also made a forward run. Schweinsteiger, though, slid in Mario Gomez between the centre backs, who controlled, turned, and slotted past Martin Steklenberg.
Yet again, the Dutch have been let down by their defensive midfield. It was completely non existent; Schweinsteiger was placed under no pressure at all and had lots of time to play the decisive pass. Because of this poor midfield play and their inability to take their chances, they look like they're on their way home.
