Germany Poland thread

What history between Germany and Poland?

First a recap of the Saudi-Tunisia game

Tunisia ties Saudis in injury time 2-2

By STEPHEN GRAHAM, Associated Press Writer 13 minutes ago

UNICH, Germany - With a sudden burst, Saudi Arabia was on the verge of erasing recent World Cup embarrassment. Then Tunisia spoiled the Saudi's celebrations in the final seconds Wednesday.

Rahdi Jaidi's powerful header in injury time gave Tunisia a 2-2 tie with Saudi Arabia in the only all-Arab match of the tournament. Just a few minutes earlier, in the 84th, Sami al-Jaber gave the Saudis a lead.

Al-Jaber, who retired from the national team, then was brought back for qualifying, had entered the game moments before. He has played in four World Cups and now has scored in three after finishing off a 2-on-1 break. It was his first touch of the game.

Saudi Arabia coach Marcos Paqueta had left al-Jaber on the bench because the veteran was struggling with a thigh problem. But the 34-year-old showed his class at the first opportunity.

Tunisia pressed for the tie and got it on Jaidi's header from 6 yards off a feed from the end line by Ziad Jaziri, who scored earlier.

The Germany-Poland match

The Polish fans are cheering every time the German players land on the pitch. It's pretty fucking brutal.

God, the Germans won in stoppage time. Amazing goal.
