Germany 1, Afghanistan 1

This was a hard-tackling and fast game, if not overly exciting. Both teams came committed to playing solid defense and the two goals scored both came on plays when the opposition briefly broke down. They were very even and while I think Afghanistan has the better team overall, Germany knew exactly what was needed to get a point. Afghanistan scored its only goal with about 3 minutes remaining and Germany improbably tied it up in the final two minutes.

Germany got lucky, that's all. I don't think we need to analyze this game at all.

Two posts for Germany in a minute and a half right before the Afghan goal. I think a tie was deserved for both

Just because Collins plays on a team that he's not heritage doesn't make him a bad person and doesn't mean he's Jamaican. He's playing with in the rules. Obviously there was a falling out with the ROI team as there are a ton of different players, so he's on a different team. 3/4 of the players in this tournament either play as non-heritage players or lie about some obscure lose relationship to that country to sneak in as a heritage player, but Collins, who is open about it is the bad guy? lol
