What exactly do you disagree about? That Poland had the better chances? That's fairly indisputable.

Germany's defense was good. Boateng was amazing especially. Its just that Poland opened up Germany's defense more times than vice-versa. With the chances Milik got, you should be putting the ball in the back of the net at this level.

There is nothing to dispute here imo. Germany hardly created anything apart from that Götze chance in the 1st half who shot straight at the keeper. There were no clear cut chances created after that and Germany were mostly reduced to shooting outside the box.

I would say this is a game where both teams cancelled out each other with solid defending but Poland had two precious moments where they could've really make it count.

Both misses from Milik were comical to say the least.

Howedes is technically awful. No idea why Low is persistent on him starting at RB. It's like playing with 10 men. 9 men if you count Goetze.

It's a joke. A really really bad joke. Löw is a *bleep* moron, nothing more. A *bleep* moron that knows he's untouchable, even if he spends all game at the sidelines sniffing his own buttcrack.

Okay, what I disagree with in the terms of what has been said in this thread, and has been the immediate media reaction:

The media, and many in this thread, and this forum in general, love a good underdog story, and as such have framed this match in a way that basically goes "Germany either win this or are hugely embarrassed", which is already plain false.
Considering the state of the group, the prime directives for Germany were "don't lose" and "don't sustain injuries", because the third match of the group is against a scrub team.

Of course Germany wanted to win, any team always wants to win. But they wanted to not lose more. And they achieved that beautifully.

The defense was amazingly improved, compared to the Ukraine match. Poland basically had half a chance. And don't come at me with those squandered Milik chances.
You're not having a "great chance" for goal against Germany when Hummels or Boateng are still in front of you. "Only Boatengs last-ditch block stopped him" is a stupid sentence, it just means that a non-threatening forward was afforded a bit of space, and one of the CBs blocked his shot, just the way everyone expected it to go down.

If that was an awesome chance, so was the rebound Müller sent sky-high, or the volley-while-slipping Kroos sent wide.

Germany had more possession, won more tackles, had more interceptions, won more 1on1s, finished more passes, had more shots on goal, and had more attempts.

Poland are a very good team, and they managed to do f*ckall. And they refused to risk a thing. So Germany didn't get any space. Well f*ck you very much Poland, Germany weren't going to stupidly crowd your box and get countered the shit out of the tournament. They were like "well, 0-0 isn't exactly bad for us either tbh" and didn't risk anything.

I know this wasn't exactly a great match, and Löw is still a retard. But that doesn't mean he doesn't sometimes do some things right. The defense has looked great, Hummels and Boateng are amazing together.

Sure, Gomez needs to start, and it was shameful how even when Gomez came on, they kept crossing to midgets instead of aiming for one of the world's best 9s. But that's just Löw being Löw. The team didn't actually suck.

Höwedes was bad attacking, so what, he's always been bad at that. Yes, I would prefer starting someone like Can, but Löw is a moron.

Doesn't mean Poland were at any point close to winning this, or close to scoring. They weren't. It's a knee-jerk analysis because the underdog almost getting the top dog is a great narrative, and we want to hear it, want to believe it, and news outlets love to write it.

But it just wasn't true. Poland are the dark horses of the tournament and fielded the world's best striker. And they didn't have a single proper chance. Half a shot on goal. Good on them.

Frankly, Germany still don't look great, but they also don't look any worse than any other top team. And they still can improve a lot by just starting Gomez, and benching Draxler and Höwedes.

Just don't start Tah. I love the kid, but Leverkusen is f*cking cancer.

Ich habe fertig.

PS: Also, finishing 2nd in the group very likely means an easier quarter- and semi-final. Meta-tactics, boyo.

You really seem to be on to something here. Did you know that Arkadiusz Milik was a Leverkusen player for a short while, too? hmm

So what, Götze was completely free and shot straight at the keeper. How's that any worse than not even connecting with the cross?

Should it be 1-1, then, instead of 0-0 in your alternate universe where chances get converted?

That's not an unbelievable miss, it's not even a shot. He didn't reach the ball.
You can tell me that he would've gotten to the ball, if he had taken two more steps. But then what. Do our defenders in your imaginary scenario not get to take two steps?

I noticed today that Kroos is literally coaching some of his teammates while on offensive.

Gotze and Hector, particularly, were both out of position most of the time. They had to be displayed manually by Kroos who points them where they should be, therefore loosing the tempo and the element of surprise. Strange things to see from a German side who is so fluent normally... Draxler was also awful; glad we did not sign him last summer after all.

I still think Germany is gonna win the Euros, but they will need some major adjustments in their starting lineup.

What is "close to scoring" in your mind? Please explain to me. Maybe we have different views on that matter.

You know, shooting. The ball. At the goal. Missing narrowly, or forcing a great save, or having a last-ditch block occur.

Not just plain not managing to shoot. Or not reaching the ball. If that's "close to scoring", Germany had more opportunities where they were "close to scoring".
