Croatia 2 - Germany 1: "Catastrophic"

Croatians surpassed Germany 2-1 but they were able to score more goals.

When Germany needs Ballack, he wasn’t part of the game. The German impotence generated the first excluded at EURO 2008: Bastian Schweinsteiger.

Bild describes the situation as "catastrophic".

Good news for Germany? Podolski scored again an reach David Villa as EURO 2008 top scorer.
