Marchena was by far a better defender than Puyol

Ballack almost made Puyol pay today

Puyol and Ramos looked out of place more than any other of the 11 players in Spain. And they made most mistakes in the Spanish defence today, as well as against Sweden where they got bitch ass pwnd by Zlatan Ibrahimovic. Sergio Ramos lied on the ground like a little girl vs Zlatan and Puyol looked like a midget.

Ronn Moss, you can stand under my umbrella. :nervous:

at the start of the tournament the one thing I worried about in the starting lineup more than anything was Marchena, he never ****ed up though and played well. His mach-man kick on Klose was boss as well, made the Germans think we can't kick those midgets anymore

Vicente05® will be back
Kroos05
® is the future

No Kroos no party baby!!!!!!!!!!

Incredible to say this, but yes. I don't like him (IMO is a dirty player, like he showed tonight with this kicks to Klose, remeber the Inter incident??), but he played very good...

Yeah, he always does that, try's to play his way out of a situation rather then hack it out like 90% of another defenders. It's just he loses concentration sometimes like Marchena But, he was amazing.

Yeah i also have to give him my props. Going into this tournament i thought he would be our weakest link but my god he was like a rock back there.

The Spanish defense held 3 clean sheets in a row (throughout the 2nd round) and he has ALOT to do with that. Well done Carlito :thmbup:
