Germany aim for group win
FIFA.com


Germany have almost achieved their first goal at the FIFA U-17 World Cup Korea 2007, namely getting through to the Round of 16. In their final Group F match in Changwon on Sunday against Trinidad and Tobago, a draw will be enough to see them through to the knockout stage.

Heiko Herrlich's youngsters want more than just a share of the points, however. Due to their inferior goal difference, Germany are currently behind Colombia in second place. The South Americans face a tough final match against Ghana though, meaning that a good win for the Europeans against T&T should be enough to see Germany through as group winners. Germany would thus avoid playing favourites Brazil in the next round, the "reward" for the team finishing second.

Germany's task is clear, therefore. "We want to win, make sure of our place in the next round and hopefully end up top of the group," outlined Herrlich, who will no doubt rotate his squad for the match. Defender Konstantin Rausch is suspended after being sent off for two bookable offences against Ghana, while six other players are all on one yellow card already and thus under the threat of a one-match ban if they pick up another caution against Trinidad.

In terms of injuries, however, things are looking more positive. Centre-forward Richard Sukuta-Pasu, who had to be taken off during the Ghana match after suffering a bruised shin bone, is fit for Sunday's match. Captain Toni Kroos, two goals to his name already, took a knock to his calf in the last match but will be available for selection. The signs all point to Germany finishing off a successful group phase with a win on Sunday therefore.

Playmaker Kroos' importance to the team was underlined against Ghana. The captain put in his second dominant performance in midfield in as many matches after his impressive display in the opener against Colombia. The Bayern Munich prodigy is not the only German youngster to have caught the eye thus far at the FIFA U-17 World Cup however. Wingers Dennis Dowidat and Sascha Bigalke have also impressed.

"What we've got is a really good team spirit," enthused Bigalke. "You could see that when we were down to ten men against Ghana and held onto our lead. We looked good up front and fought hard at the back, and we want to do the same in the third group match to qualify for the Round of 16 as group winner."

They were lookin' half decent for a little while but this is an extremely poor defensive showing now. The team fightin hard but some players just ball watching

and losin concentration. That right side is LEAKY! The players bun, Cyrus runnin hard but like he was gettin stitches just before the last goal. Maund and Lewis

fading in and out of the game. Like the other teams before they are overpowering T&T with speed and strength. I jus hope the psychological damage on these

young men is not too great. If they recover from this we have hope. We could really use a sports psychologist now!

Ah know Corneal get us to the Finals, but still I must critisise one thing. Why does he persist with this high line in defence, I thought when yuh have slow defenders you should play deep rather than the opposite way around. Two of the four goals was down to lack of pace and communication from defenders. We start of bright spreading the play with the attackers running well off the ball, but after Maund (?) second chance when he shoot straight at the German GK...we jus start long ball sh*t.

This is hard to watch especially as this is pretty much the German second string.

Rodney, speed is a relative term yes! These defenders were speed demons in the CFU and among the best in CONCACAF. If we had sent them on just one

African tour they would have a clue what was about to face them. Well their horizons just got broadened. In spite of all this I still give this team props for giving

just for fighting to get here in the first place. commentator just say Caribbean teams need to play the worlds best on a regular basis AND improve physically.

Steups, everybody here know dat.

Yuh miss meh point. I'm fully aware of our level. I'm saying Corneal now knows his players cannot keep pace with the players from "better" nations, so why stick with a strategy that will so obiviously expose our flaws.

Which is exactly my point as well, if speed is relative then you change to suit tactics, but coaching skill is relative too. I think the coaching staff seriously

underestimated the physical ability of the opposition and coached this technique too much in practice. Now perhaps they are not confident enough to change to

 suit.

I hope T&T learned something truely substantial from this experience. Unfortunately I can't say that they demonstrated any great improvement as they progressed through their games. Don't get me wrong they played better than I thought they would, its just a shame they did'nt seem to be putting lessons learned into practice on the pitch. They seemed very one dimensional.

Still proud, it was clear they were trying hard each game.

Big props to our Under 17 team and the coaching staff for getting us to this world cup. They played the best their preparations afforded them. They

held the midfield in the 2nd half but the Germans had already dropped back somewhat and were playing for the counter. Da Silva looked good and used his space

well,  considering. I only hope the youths were not too discouraged and come back stronger as our 2009 u-20s. I wonder if Corneal will remain the coach? I hope

he too can progress to the next step? We still need coaches with his level of experience in T&T. He WILL have to take the post-mortem heat and explain his

rationale in using the D to support attack after all those goals scored. Frankly Wim job lookin a bit more secure now.

Congrats to the team on their performance. Nothing to hang your heads about fellas. The talent is there, they need to work on the defensive mistakes. The lack of explosive power could be worked on, both in terms of running and jumping, someone like Ato could advise. That first goal where the German player outran our right back for 60 yards was telling and the Germans seemed to win most of the 50/50 balls. The offence showed some nice movement, we have a good foundation to build on here. :beermug:
