Minute 15: Whether Portugal are nervous or just lacking concentration, they don’t seem to be in sync with each other yet as many passes fail to arrive.
Minute 10: Hitzlsperger tries a shot from a seemingly impossible angle but it does actually come dangerously close to the goal.
Minute 9: Germany have a free kick at about 37 meters but Hitzlsperger hits the only player in the ‘wall’, Deco.
Minute 6: Germany enjoy most of the possession in the opening phase but no chances yet up til now.
Minute 2: The German line-up for this game includes Simon Rolfes. The Bayer Leverkusen player replaces the injured Torsten Frings.
Kick-off: The match has started. This is the real thing!
