Ok seriously why was Ballack even on the field? He hardly touched the ball. Most of the time he was walking. I was getting upset watching his gameplay. Just about the entire game he was nowhere to be found (besides trying to get a sissy foul). I wanted germany to beat the italians but they really needed Ballack to step up his game, which he didnt. Another dissappointment to watch was Klose, he hardly got the ball (because of ballacks lack of effort). In my opinion he lost it for germany. But kudos to the italians they played well and kept Klose and Podloski away from getting shots on the net, and when they did Buffon was right their to stop it. Does anyone feel the same way about Ballacks lack of effort please let me know.
