A hugely satisfying opening game at the World Cup: 6 goals total (Germany 4, Costa Rica 2), good end-to-end action, great finishing all around. The Costa Ricans are clearly overmatched in this competition, and will be lucky to secure a point. The Germans looked better that I thought they would, but looked plenty shakey at the back nonetheless. Still, one of the Costa Rica goals was clearly off-side, superstar Michael Ballack is scheduled to return from injury, Germany is host nation...they may go deeper in this competition than I thought.
