Joachim Low's men certainly go into the second semi-final as the form team and the favourites, however the Azzurri have a doggedness and unpredictability about them that should not be written off.

Tottenham's Dutch international Rafael van der Vaart was relatively quiet when the rumours linking him with a move to Schalke 04 first emerged. Admittedly, he was preparing for Holland's ill-fated Euro 2012 campaign at the time and would therefore have had other things on his mind.

Maybe his old club Hamburg were alerted to his possible availability but this time Rafa has been quicker to give his reaction, even if it ultimately tells us nothing.

Yesterday I was instructed to root for Germany in Group B. Again, correct answer. Sure, Germany may have won more than their fair sure of international tournaments, but everyone knows you can never have too much Mannschaft (What are you giggling at you reprobates?). More importantly, thanks to the influence of new USMNT coach Jurgen Klinsmann and our post-World War II international military basing strategy, the German team has become a sort of farm team for the US, as players who've decided they're too talented and strong to play for Germany graduate to playing for America (or something like that).

At the Heysel Stadium in Brussels on the eighteenth of June 1972, West Germany lifted their first major tournament trophy since the 1954 World Cup.

Yet it is sometimes said that the team of 1972 is more fondly remembered than the team of two years later, and it is certainly fair to say that the road to these twin victories was not without its problems.
