22 JUNE 2012             22:45

In the second quarter in Gdansk Germany and Greece determined which country would leave the Eurozone. The Germans, the main favorites of the European Championship, played with the most unpredictable opponent in the tournament.

Pre-match statistics were clearly in favor of the German national team. The Greeks had previously played with the Germans eight times, but had never won. The German team had become the winner of 14 official matches before that game. Three of the matched had taken place in the group stage of the tournament.

As a result, Germany will meet with Portugal in the semifinal, which had defeated the Czech Republic the day before.

Germany squad had a good start in the match and in the 3rd minute scored a goal, but it was scored from offside. Schweinsteiger tackled the ball from behind the defenders of Greece.

Throughout the first half Germany fiercely attacked the Greeks, but failed to score the final goal.

The Greeks took a defending position. However in the 30the minute Ninis’s heel chop could have resulted in a goal but Neuer reached the ball directed into the far corner of the goal net.

The total control of the match finally brought its results. 39 minutes into the match Lahm obtained the ball forty yards from the gate, moved into the center and shot from a distance. At this time, Sifakis was powerless.

1-0 for Germany, which until that moment had controlled the ball 70% of the playing time.

The missed did not force the Greeks to change the game tactics. So the initiative rested with the Germans till the end of the half-time. One minute before the break Shyurrle almost repeated the maneuver of Lahm, but he shot wide – the ball was inches from the gate.

The German team was at the winning edge when left for the break.

In the first minutes of the second half the Greeks were a little more active, but their timid attempts to attack ended at the penalty line of Germany.

But in the 54th minute Gekas went ahead and delivered a pass to the center of the penalty area and Samaras scored a goal. Thus, the Greeks equalized the score 1-1.

However, their joy lasted only 5 minutes. After Boateng’s passing, Khedira headed the ball into the Greeks’s gate. The euro was again in favor of Germany – 2-1.

In the 67th minute Miroslav Klose stretched their lead after an error of Sifakis. Thus, Germany got closer to the game with Portugal – 3-1.

74 minutes into the match the Greeks were defeated – 4:1, Royce nailed the ball into an empty net of Greeks.

In the 89th minute Greeks reduced the gap with a penalty. The German defender tackled the ball and Salpingidis scored a goal from the penalty area.

The German national team, completely controlling the game, became the deserved winners. The goals of the Greeks were probably accidental, as opposed to the German national team, which owned the ball 71% of the time and had 24 goal attempts, of which 14 were shots on target.

Starting lineups:

Germany: Neuer, Lam, Badshtube, Hummels, Boateng, Khedira, Schweinsteiger, Ozil, Royce Shyurrle, Klose

Greece: Sifakis, Maniatis, Tsavellas, Papadopoulos, Torosidis, Papastatopulus, Makos, Ninis, Katsouranis, Samaras, Salpingidis

Protesters march during an anti-austerity demonstration in Frankfurt May 18, 2012. REUTERS/Kai Pfaffenbach

Friday May 18, 2012         10:45am EDT

German police said they detained 400 anti-capitalist protesters in Frankfurt on Friday for defying a ban on demonstrations against austerity policies implemented to tackle the intensifying euro zone debt crisis.

The demonstration in the German financial capital was part of a four-day-long “Blockupy” protest, due to run until Saturday, against capitalism and swingeing austerity measures.

“Hungry? Eat a banker,” read one banner protesters held up outside the Messeturm skyscraper housing Goldman Sachs’ offices. Reuters’ Frankfurt office is also in the building.

Police closed several main roads in Frankfurt – including a main artery into the city that passes by the Messeturm – and flooded the centre with officers. There was no violence.

The protesters are angry at the misery they say governments are inflicting on people with their response to the crisis, which has intensified since inconclusive elections in Greece this month fueled concerns about its future in the euro zone.

“The Greek austerity measures are making Greece go kaputt even faster,” said protester Leonard Loch, 37, from Hamburg.

The European Central Bank reported no trouble on Friday and commercial banks, many of whom have made contingency plans to cope with the protests, said their operations were running smoothly.

“Our operating business is not curtailed. We were well prepared,” said a Commerzbank spokeswoman.

Police sealed off Deutsche Bank’s headquarters. Germany’s biggest bank said its business was unaffected.

The ECB is at the centre of the policy response to the crisis and has faced calls from politicians, investors and protesters to do more.

The central bank says it has already headed off a major credit crunch with unprecedented funding operations in December and February that unleashed over 1 trillion euros ($1.3 trillion) into the financial system.

It is pressing governments to act.

“The ECB shouldn’t give the cheap money to banks but rather to countries,” said Guenther Stamer, 62, a social worker from Kiel.

REINFORCEMENTS

Some luxury goods boutiques on Frankfurt’s most prestigious shopping street closed and boarded up their windows due to the protest, though there were no signs of damage.

The English Theatre, which is close to the ECB, cancelled performances for Friday and Saturday due to the demonstration.

Friday’s protest followed a legal scrap between activists and authorities over whether the demonstrations should be allowed to proceed.

A court on Monday gave the go-ahead for a rave dance party organized by protesters on Wednesday and protests scheduled for Saturday, but ruled against them taking place on the other days.

On Wednesday, police peacefully removed demonstrators from outside the ECB’s Frankfurt headquarters and detained 150 demonstrators on Thursday for defying a ban on protests.

Frankfurt police have drafted in reinforcements from other German states to cope with the protests. Some 5,000 police are ready to be deployed.

Philipp Lahm of Germany is tackled by Danny Fonseca of Costa Rica during the FIFA World Cup Germany 2006 Group A match between Germany and Costa Rica at the Stadium Munich on June 9, 2006 in Munich, Germany.

MAY 5, 2012         2:01 PM

Germany captain Philipp Lahm has slammed Euro 2012 co-hosts Ukraine for their government’s treatment of jailed ex-prime minister Yulia Tymoshenko.

Tymoshenko was jailed for seven years last October on charges of abuse of power and last month went on hunger strike after claiming she had been beaten by prison guards.

Ukraine President Viktor Yanukovych is coming under increasing political pressure over the imprisonment of the former opposition leader, with governments of EU countries threatening to boycott the tournament.

Lahm says the political situation there is of huge concern.

“I do not find my views of democratic fundamental rights, human rights, personal freedom or freedom of the press to be found in the present political situation in the Ukraine,” Lahm told German news magazine Der Spiegel.

“When I see how the regime is treating Yulia Tymoshenko, it has nothing to do with my image of democracy.”

Lahm called on Michel Platini, the president of European football’s governing body UEFA, to also put pressure on the government in the Ukraine, who will co-host the European Championships from June 8-July 1.

“I think he should take a stand and I am curious to see what he has to say,” said Lahm.

With political pressure growing on the Ukraine, Lahm says the championships are in danger of being over-shadowed by Tymoshenko’s on-going detention.

“Football has become too important to remain untouched by this,” he said.

“When I read the first reports about Tymoshenko’s failing health, I was wary of which way that was going to go.”

Germany, among the Euro 2012 title favourites, will play all three of their opening games in the Ukraine.

Both their Group B games against Portugal on June 9 and June 13 against the Netherlands will be held in Kharkov, where Tymoshenko is being held.

Both Germany and Russia have offered to treat Tymoshenko, but Yanukovych has so far shown no sign of wanting to make concessions, saying he cannot interfere in the legal process.

69 min GOAL Germany 4-1 England (Muller) Another break! Germany are taking England to the cleaners here! Germany cleared a corner and Ozil got the better of last man Barry. He runs at goal unopposed, crosses for Muller, and Germany are now three goals clear. Please, please let them not make it five.

68 min Muller again shoots wide. According to Five Live, Larrionda’s reaction on seeing the replay of the ‘goal’ was: “Oh my God.”

66 min GOAL Germany 3-1 England (Muller) They think it’s all over. It is now. An incisive breakaway by the Germans after that free-kick. Schweinsteiger finds Muller in the right channel, who has time to line up his shot. It goes straight at James, hits him and goes in. But that shot was truly lashed.
