The first round of games is over and the hosts return for their second appearance. I am forced to make do with seeing only the second half, mainly with no sound, but Germany are clearly overpowering Poland, who put up a valiant resistance, as they did in their first game.
They are clearly under the cosh, but cope admirably until Radoslaw Sobolewski is sent off, unluckily, for a second yellow card. It looks like the Germans will fail to take advantage of their position but in stoppage time Oliver Neuville finally penetrates the goal.
Having lost two games, Poland are the first team to be knocked out of the competition, and their final game against the Ivory Coast will be for pride alone. The Germans, meanwhile, are all but assured of progress to the next round.
