    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.

    When will you finally admit that you do not have a clue about soccer. You try to sound smart, but anybody who actually knows soccer can tell that you are full of crap.
    I am hoping for Germany vs Netherlands in the final. Brings up old memories of this....

    But on who's account? - Who will be sacrified for Reus to be in the lineup?
    Reus doesn't double either Klose or Müller in scoring power. Özil has been a disappointment this year, after starting strong with Arsenal and Reus would likely replace him. But it wouldn't double the scoring power.

    Different tactics. Neither US or Ghana had their minds on the attack, both would rather try to defend and hope for a counter. Brazil (and Portugal, which was also "destroyed") brings a lot of people when they attack and they're not world class at running back home.

    .... so tell me what I said that's inaccurate? Reus is a better goal scorer than Muller. This is proven... over and over again.

    This isn't "acting smart". It's simply not being an idiot.

    You don't think Brasil's tactics changed a bit after allowing that first goal?

    C'mon now.

    I watched the game and no. Mental errors from Brazil were to blame, they continued to play as they did before the goal and as they have in previous matches.

    Nope. You've been proven wrong again and again.

    ... so outscoring someone over and over... and you still claim the guy that doesn't score as much is a better scorer?

    Jesus...

    This is hopeless.
