Germany need to change things up, and that's exactly what they're doing. Thankfully for the neutral who doesn't like seeing people embarrass themselves on a football pitch, Lukas Podolski is off, replaced by Borussia Dortmund forward Marco Reus. Mario Gomez has also been pulled for Miroslav Klose, which is good because if you don't love Klose you are a bad human.
Anyway, the second half is underway in Warsaw and Italy are beating up in the favourites 2-0. Germany have most of the ball to start with, but they're going to have to work very hard if they want to come back from this deficit. Italy are playing their best football of the tournament, and nothing their opponents have done has worked just yet. Reus tries to make things happen after turning Leonardo Bonucci inside out, but his attempted shot is slightly mishit and Gianluigi Buffon can collect.
