A Cole deflects a Baros shot past James. England's defence has looked vulnerable so far.

The Belgium squad your u21s beat 2-1 was no way near their Olympic team (only 4 players from thire starting line-up).

Most people from Belgium rate their Olympic team higher than their full team. So their full team minus the players at the Oympics is a pile of trash.

Trotz großer Personalsorgen haben die U21-Junioren des Deutschen Fußball-Bundes (DFB) einen Härtetest erfolgreich absolviert und ihre Erfolgsserie fortgesetzt.


Jubel der U21-Auswahl um Torschütze Aogo (h.) Das Team von Trainer Dieter Eilts gewann in Koblenz gegen die Olympia-Auswahl Belgiens mit 2:1 (2:0) und zeigte vor den kommenden Aufgaben in der EM-Qualifikation eine ansprechende Leistung. Der Freiburger Dennis Aogo (25., Foulelfmeter) sowie ein Eigentor des Belgiers Laurent Ciman (42.) sorgten für den Erfolg des DFB-Nachwuchses. Die deutsche U21 schraubte trotz des Fehlens von zehn Spielern ihre Erfolgsserie auf vier Siege und acht Partien ohne Niederlage. Jeanvion Yulu-Matondo (86.) konnte für Belgien nur noch verkürzen.


So, our U21s beat Belgiums U23`s (Olympic team) comfortably, although missing ten players? - Frightening Yikes
Well you shouldn't believe ARD's bullshit/propaganda.

I checked the line-ups on your own DFB's website:

HT Germany - Belgium 0-0.

Apart from the Belgian goalkeeper doing a Schumacher on Podolski nothing much happened (amazing he didn't get sent off). Klose missed Germany best chance. Think they'll bring Kuranyi second half.

Fair scoreline, the Czechs can counter fine but can't control the play, and we can break them by passing through the centre.

Lampard and Barry are both playing quite poorly + too static, Rooney looks to drop deep and get things moving but that can leave us with too little up front, Beckham is slow and predictable though he got the assist, Defoe looks fine on the shoulder of the last man but offers nothing else. Against better teams we should either play pure Beckham style (Heskey), or get real mobility in the midfield. Still, Capello England is reasonably patient on the ball - we just need a better shape in midfield.

Belgium get away with hands & thereafter Sonck should have put them 0-1 in front, but completely missed the ball...

Penalty Germany...

Schweini 1-0

Hope this means Germany start playing football now... Been very poor so far.

eidt: Marin 2-0 finally some decent footy nice interplay between him & Lahm.
