Arsenal @ The World Cup

Match 1


Germany (4) V's Costa Rica (2)

Jens Lehmann fails to get his right foot to a Paulo Wanchope shot (12 mins) which allows Costa Rica to level the game at 1-1. Practically the only thing that Jens had to do in the 1st half. Good to see he moans a lot in Germany as well, not surprising looking at the shite defending by the Hun.

Judging from the 1st few minutes of this game it looks like the Adidas World Cup ball is going to be a real handfull for goalkeepers. Imagine playing with one of those balls you can buy at any British sea side resort for 99p, now imagine a gale force wind at Margate beach and thats how this ball reacts!! Oh what fun, we should be in for some amazing long range goals (even Lahm scores only his second international goal, aided by this kraut wunderball)

Shocking marking again, The Hun tries to play the off side trap again and Wanchope grabs a second, pulling one back (making it 3-2 on 73 mins.) slipping it by a bemused Jens in to the back of the onion bag.

Looks like Klinsman has learnt his coaching skills whilst at the Scum.

Germany clearly not at their best, however look fit and quite good whilst attacking, but clearly have serious issues at the back. This side is well beatable judging by this form.

Torsten Frings scores wunder goal from 30 yards to make in 4-2, outside of his right boot sees the ball curling past a helpless Costa Rica goalkeeper – a definite shout for goal of the tournament even at this early stage.

Not much for Jens to do in this game, 2 shots 2 goals, clearly not in the shot stopping form shown at Highbury this season.
