    On the Beeb, it says:

    Coach Joachim Low did not reveal the names of the players affected.

    "One third of our team were complaining about a sore throat," he said. "All players were able to train.

    "They still have a slight cold but there's no feeling of exhaustion. I hope that we do not have any worsening overnight."
    So it could be 'man flu'.

    Mit Ausnahme von Mustafi meldeten sich alle Spieler aus dem 23er-Kader fit. Befürchtungen, dass zuvor leicht grippekranke Akteure wie Mats Hummels und Christoph Kramer ausfallen könnten, bestätigten sich nicht. "Hummels kann auf jeden Fall auflaufen. Sein Zustand hat sich verbessert", sagte Löw - solche Nachrichten dürften zur tiefen Entspanntheit des Bundestrainers beitragen.
    [ Spiegel online 3.7 ]

    ... Casually translated ... All men on board except Mustafi :-) and Löw is in the Zen Zone :-)

    Okay, I've put my money where my mouth is. $10 on France to win.

    So, going by my past predictions, I hereby congratulate Germany on progressing.

    Winners choice ^
    Value is clearly on France imo. At worst it's a coin flip and books have Germany as a good favorite.

    Löw ( German coach ) quote at press conference ARD ( German main broadcaster ) 3 July 2014


    "Ich bin völlig tiefenentspannt, das können sie mir abnehmen. Wir sind unter den letzten Acht, und wir werden morgen unter die letzten Vier kommen, und dann sehen wir weiter."


    Tom007 free online translation ;-)

    " Believe me, I'm totally relaxed. We have reached the Round of 8 and will progress tomorrow and then let's wait and see"



    Pretty bold indeed but great mindset!

    what's the issue with these two teams?

    Germany 4 years ago had one of the most entertaining game and even if this year they seem to struggle a bit you can expect them to step up big time and to show off some great football tonight.

    France has managed 2 great games (albeit against not too hard opponents, the swiss and the hondurian) and can do, what the french do best....the best and the worst in one game.

    Not to mention that there has been quite a few games that have gone in the history books between these two teams.
