Germany lost to Italy but the millions of Germans crying their eyes out yesterday can still be optimistic.
Their team had the youngest squad in Euro 2012 and arguably the most impressive one. German production line is still working and creating diligent, technical, well educated players.
And when Mesut Özil & Manuel Neuer will have the international experience of Andrea Pirlo and Gianluigi Buffon – then it’s hard to see Germany lose.
By the way, Mario Balotelli might have killed racism in Italy.
