Finally! Germany hadn't been doing anything at all for the past 20 minutes or so, but they've got a breakthrough now. Bastian Schweinsteiger and Thomas Mueller combine on the right, and the ball eventually finds its way to Sami Khedira, who hits a decent cross into the Portugal box. It takes an unlucky (for one team, anyway) deflection and ends up being met by Mario Gomez's head. He doesn't miss, which I have to admit was a major surprise -- instead the effort is superbly placed into the bottom corner, leaving Rui Patricio with no chance whatsoever.
So it's 1-0 Germany and it turns out that Joachim Loew didn't need to substitute everyone all at once and that we might have been overreacting a little bit. Now that they've got a goal, Germany might be able to play a little bit of football and put this match to bed. We shall see.
