Cristiano Ronaldo bicycle kick sighting! Granted, it would be a lot more exciting if he was in Manuel Neuer's box rather than Rui Patricio's, clearing out a loose ball from a corner, but we like to make our own excitement in these parts. So far in the second half it's as though both teams have forgotten that the midfield exists, which is making things exciting if rather Stoke City-esque. Also, there are lots of fouls.
Speaking of making our own excitement, it's probably time for Andre Schurrle to come in for Lukas Podolski. The former Koln man is not doing anything at all -- he's had the most chances in the match and has barely forced Rui Patricio to move. He does manage to get a good cross in (which Mario Gomez, true to recent form, completely mis-heads), so that's nice, but considering the form Schurrle's in, Joachim Loew will have to try him soon. Right?
