Germany 1 – 0 Chile

Chile provided formidable opponents in exactly the type of match Germany needed to prepare themselves for Brazil.

While Jogi himself admitted the team had not played well, the German media went into overdrive with their usual pre-tournament doom and gloom, with our friends at calling the match a ‘Horror Victory’ and winning award for the week’s best Oxymoron. Or perhaps make that just plain Moron.

Let’s remember that this very same Chile had previously, in November, outplayed England at Wembley 2-0.

And that a victory, albeit a horror one, is still a victory!
