As per Bild, Germany has much at stake with a win today.

  • Remind the world once more about their brand of attractive attacking football.
  • End on a positive note with a good World Cup record.
  • Schweinsteiger, Oezil can clinch the best player award.
  • Thomas Mueller can be named as the best young player.
  • Miroslav Klose is very close to Ronaldo’s record of 16 World Cup goals. A brace will make him the all time leader. But first he has to overcome back problems.
  • Third place makes the players more attractive to the big clubs. Oezil is being chased by Barca and Man Utd, Khedira by Chelsea, and Real want to land Schweinsteiger.
  • The new German president Christian Wulff will be at the game and it will be an auspicious start to his presidency.
  • Many German fans want to bid adieu to the 2010 World Cup with a celebration. Then it is onward to the 2012 Euro in Ukraine/Poland.

Even Der Kaiser believes that Joachim Löw should go all out for a victory and give all those fans at the Brandenberg Gate something to cheer about after the semi-final disappointment.
