Of course he's not as important for Germany as Ronaldo is Portugal...etc... For starters, Portugal only has one true threat. You realize Reus DOUBLES Germany's scoring power, right? It's the soccer equivalent of taking Kobe out of the Shaq/Kobe prime years with the Lakers. Pretending like it was no biggie is stupid. And yeah, they've gotten through. A lot of it being luck though- and today's match... can't take this as anything but an anomaly. Score 1 goal on the US late... struggle with Ghana... but destroy Brazil?... Ehh.
