World Cup Day 12 - Germany coast through

Needing a win to finish top of Group A, hosts Germany despatched hopefuls Ecuador 3-0 this afternoon with Miroslav Klose notching two goals to lead the scoring charts with four goals so far, leaving Ecuador to go through in second place.

I've only seen Germany in the opening game of the tournament but they impressed me with the way they attacked in that game and in posting a 100% record so far they could certainly be a threat in the knock-out stages with a home crowd behind them.

In the 'dead' game of the group, Poland at least got a win over Costa Rica to ease their disappointment of missing qualification.
