Klinsmann searches for some good news

Berti Vogts and his players wished first to "rejoice" in their quarter-final victory over Croatia before contemplating the semi-final with England, the interpreter said at Old Trafford. Clearly there had been something lost in translation. Never has there been a team who looked less like rejoicing than the Germans on Sunday.

. . . But on the pitch, it's back to 1966 and all that

So, it will be 1966 re-visited. On Wednesday night, England and Germany will meet at Wembley in the Euro 96 semi-finals in what England fans hope will be a repeat of that dramatic July day 30 years ago when Bobby Moore lifted the World Cup.

Football: End of road for Matthaus

Bertie Vogts, the Germany coach, has said his country's most-capped player, Lothar Matthaus, will never play for the national side again after another episode in the player's long-running feud with Jurgen Klinsmann.

CHAMPIONSHIP COUNTDOWN: No 4 Germany; Vogts is a favourite at last

If you wanted an international side to play for your life you would think carefully about the Dutch, then choose the Germans. They are the time and motion man's dream team, maximising while others disappoint. They qualify for every major tournament and usually reach or get close to the final.
