He is wrong. That 2002 Germany is probably the worst team that ever reached a World Cup final.

^I miss those days... everybody underestimating, talking shit about Germany, yet still finding ways to win games... now it is the opposite.

We're getting there. Thanks to Löw, this new generation has the "bottler" image, hence people are starting to underestimate them again. Probably the only positive aspect these days.

The 2002 team may have been mediocre, but the final was a lot closer than many try to paint it in retrospect. Ballack may have made a difference, but does it matter now? No.

There was only one nation that in my eyes was the best and that was Italy during 2002.

Dat squad!

Best Italy squad I'd seen in my life, and amazing shirts, shame it didnt work and that FIFA had other idea's.

Germany 2002 was indeed a bit of a joke, I remember that road to the final...then again, they havent been much closer to silverware. Perhaps 2008, but they had zero chances in that final as well.

2002 final was a lot closer than the 2008 final. Results don't tell the whole story.
