Is Germany Charmed?

June 29, 2012


Germany was my most favourite team to win the Euro 2012 but after being dumped out of the semi-final 1:2 by Italy who I see as becoming the eventual winner, I was forced to sit and have a re-think. What on earth is wrong with Germany. Is Germany jinxed? Even amongst my friends I never agree that Spain would be able to beat Germany let alone Italy but after Thursday’s defeat I was forced to retrieve my words and bear the heavy loss.

The problem with the German Machines is what I don’t know. They play very nice and attractive football that you and I wouldn’t deny we appreciate but what always go wrong when they are a step away to winning a trophy is what you cannot really say neither can I. After assessing Germany’s inability to win a major trophy in the past 10 years I was falsed to conclude that something must be really wrong somewhere. In Korea/Japan 2002 they flew all the way to the final only to lose the then invincible Brazil. Again, on home soil in 2006, they lose when it mattered most in the semi-final to the eventual winner Italy. The trail of bad luck continued till South Africa 2010 where they played beyond the expectation of most people only to lose again in the semi-final. What really made me to be come to a conclusion that Germany must be jinxed is her ouster in the ongoing Euro 2012. The road to the tournament was very smooth and easy for them where others are banking on play-off. In the group stage the players, beating Portugal, brushing aside disillusioned Holland and finally dumping Denmark out of the tournament to top the group with a 100% record. Woefully again when it matters most fans and supporters all over the world were disappointed as the German Machines failed to find their footing against a more determined Italy. I don’t know what you really think is the problem with Germany. They have the players, play nice and attractive football but couldn’t just lift the trophy when it matters most. What really do you think is the problem despite these players and a good coach? Is Germany really jinxed?
