We won!

“Football is a game played by 22 players. And then Germany win.” — Gary Linekar, England Football Team, 1984 – 1992

We won! Germany beat Argentina 4-2 on penalties to enter their 11th FIFA World Cup Semi-final, a record Brazil would equalize if they end Zidane’s career later today.

I guess we can attribute the above Linekar comment to the outgoing Argentine coach Jose Pekerman as well, after his bitter experience earlier in the day. I will try to update this post over the weekend, but for now, don’t miss this piece on how the Argentines masterfully [pun intended] dug their own grave!

Btw, Apple has something to say on this, and I came up with the title for this post inspired by it.

Go Germany, Go! All the way back to Berlin and lift the Cup!
