Ballack, Klose should be fit for Italy.
By NESHA STARCEVIC, AP Sports Writer.


BERLIN (AP) -- How would Germany fare without captain Michael Ballack and goal-minded Miroslav Klose? The host nation hopes it won't have to find out in its World Cup semifinal against Italy.
Ballack and Klose both cramped up during Germany's quarterfinal win over Argentina. Klose was substituted out after scoring a late equalizer, while Ballack played through extra time and took one of the decisive penalties.
That match was Friday and the Germans don't have much time to recover before Tuesday's semifinal in Dortmund.
"They are getting physiotherapy and both will be fit and able to play," assistant coach Joachim Loew said Sunday of Ballack and Klose.
Germany's staff, however, has often downplayed injuries.
Klose had a bruised calf and Ballack limped at the end of regulation and throughout the extra time, getting treatment on his calf several times on the sidelines.
Ballack entered the tournament with a calf injury and did not play in Germany's opening match against Costa Rica. He then missed some training with an ankle injury that also bothered him before the World Cup.
He's loomed large in the German midfield, getting back to clear balls defensively while also directing the attack. Klose has scored five of Germany's 11 goals and leads the tournament.
It would be a huge setback if either misses Tuesday's semifinal.
Italy also has injury problems -- defender Alessandro Nesta is still recovering from a right thigh injury and remains in doubt.
The semifinal match between two three-time winners has the potential to be a World Cup classic, but Loew warned against too high expectations, saying both teams would be cautious -- much as Argentina and Germany played Friday.
"Italy has been playing the same way for 60 years, it won't give up that philosophy now," Loew said. "They wait for their chance, they are patient."
Germany has never beaten Italy in four World Cup matches. The last time they played in the tournament was the 1982 final, which Italy won 3-1.
Overall, Italy leads the all-time series 13-7, with eight draws.
Going to Dortmund could be an advantage for Germany. It has 13 wins and one draw -- and no losses -- in noisy Westfalen Stadium.
Italy beat Germany 4-1 in a friendly in March, a defeat that nearly led to the firing of coach Juergen Klinsmann.
"We are not thinking of that now at all," Loew said. "We are a different team now."


World cup history is not on Germany's side, but then it's ancient history since they haven't met since 1982. Now we have the homefield - Dortmund no less where we've never lost, and a desire to reverse that lousy friendly before the World Cup. Hopefully Ballack and Klose are indeed fit enough to last the whole game. Let's rock on over Italy.

FIFA suspend Frings following Argie-bargy
ESPN Soccernet


July 3, 2006

Germany's World Cup hopes have been dealt a blow after FIFA banned Torsten Frings from tomorrow's semi-final with Italy.

The Werder Bremen midfielder, one of the outstanding players of the quarter-final victory on penalties against Argentina, was caught on television throwing a punch at Julio Cruz during a melee at the end of the match.

FIFA's disciplinary committee has decided the 29-year-old was guilty of violent conduct and imposed a one-match suspension, with another suspended ban that would come into force should he misbehave again in the next six months.

The decision means Frings will be available for the final, should Germany beat Italy, or the third-place play-off.

FIFA's disciplinary committee took the action after new television pictures which showed Frings throwing a punch at Inter striker Cruz.

The German FA were given until 1pm today to submit a defence but after hearing their submission the disciplinary committee ruled Frings was an 'active participant in the incidents following the final whistle'.

The fracas happened after the penalty shoot-out on Friday night, when Argentina players and officials kicked, punched and pushed players and coaches from the German squad. Frings denied any active part in the incident but the pictures show him retaliating.

Argentinian defender Leonardo Cufre was red-carded after the fracas in which he kicked German defender Per Mertesacker. He and Argentina midfielder Maxi Rodriguez have both been charged with violent conduct and have until Wednesday to make their submissions.

Meanwhile, FIFA have insisted the Italian football federation played no part in bringing Frings' involvement to their attention. The pictures were first shown on Italian TV before then shown in Germany.

FIFA communications director Markus Siegler said: 'There was no attempt from the Italian federation to incite FIFA to do something. This footage was shown on a public channel in Germany.'

Certain teams have their boogie teams and though people say that is BS. It is always on the back of players minds because the media never allows them to forget. Germany are at home, they have the rhythm, fitness and belief to win it all. However, Italy have been their boogie team in World Football and they need to get that monkey off their back. The problem is this Italy team is one of the best in years, good defense, outstanding GKer and fire power with depth. Yet I am not a fan of the Italian way, but they wll prove difficult to beat.
So if they go at Germany and take it to them, Italy will win. If they return to their defending in numbers and counter attack, I will say Germany will win.

I heard too that Oliver Bierhoff started taunting the Argentines as they were walking off the field and that added fuel to the fire, particularly as we was not even a player...but rather a 'suit'

lotsa final rematches in the rounds leading up to the final.

Argentina-Germany...rematch of the '86 & 90 final

Brazil-France...rematch of the 98 final

Italy-Germany...rematch of the '82 final

Argentina-Holland (first round)...rematch of the '78 final

Goin' with Germany on this one. Italy's team is more talented, but I think the Germans are fitter, and have serious sense of belief at this point. They will not die easy.

This game has degenerated into a boring routine set of exchanges with no one player able to shake things up individually and add some skill and imagination to each attack....Good pace & technique to the game, but a serious lack of imagination and flare...BORING !! A goal now might open things up.

Ah hope France or Portugal beat whichever team wins this.
