Four years ago, Fernando Torres blew by Philipp Lahm for Spain's winning goal in the Euro final. Today, Lahm was caught in a similar futile foot race this time against a powerful Mario Balotelli.

The City striker sneaked behind the lines as Riccardo Montolivo with all the time in the world caught the Germans in their offside trap to find Balotelli with a long diagonal pass.

Glückwünsche! After a 4-2 win over Greece tonight, the Germans are through to the semi-finals of Euro 2012, although admittedly, they were a shadow of themselves in the first half. Lackluster finishing, passing (Ozil's fish diet clearly doesn't hide his exhaustion) and poor defending almost cost them dearly, as did Joachim Low's unexpected decision to field Miroslav Klose, who hardly touched the ball in the first half.

Arsenal defender Per Mertesacker is convinced that despite Germany's repeated failure to succeed in the advanced stages of major international competitions over the course of the last decade, the current squad is ready to go the distance.

Mertesacker arrived in the Premier League on the transfer deadline-day last August and despite subsequently missing much of the season's second half through injury, he has returned on the nation stage in recent exhibition fixtures.
