An easy win against a totally crap Cameroon, which should change their name to the "Abominable Lions". Well it should have been easy, but Germany played crap too until the last 20 minutes when they got down to business.
After the match, Camerron fired their coach, none other than Winfried Schäfer, who is best known for his excellent work with Karlsruher SC. I guess that's easier than firing all the lazy-ass players.
