Germany is out of the 2012 European Football Championships. They lost to Italy in an exciting semi-final game 1:2. The Italians will now face the Spanish in the final.

Wow, what a surprising result! No one saw this coming. I was on the edge of my seat. Everybody assumed the Germans would have a cakewalk on the way to the championship. Just goes to show, never take anything for granted. Overconfidence can be your worst enemy. The passionate Italian team made few errors as opposed to the unusually shaky Germans.

At the end of the game, the neighborhood was creepily quiet: no car horns, no firecrackers going off, no singing in the streets, and no cheering. You could hear a pin drop. Everyone was stunned. I’m not a betting man, but I’ll put my money on the Spanish. 

Mario Balotelli: Scored twice, giving Italy the Win.
