The Local’s World Cup blog offers an outsider’s perspective on German football as Die Mannschaft goes for glory in South Africa. Don’t miss our weekend roundup!

As Germany prepared to take on Australia's Socceroos on Sunday, our bloggers analysed the matchup. We also looked at the supposedly devilish new World Cup ball made by Adidas and detailed the tribulations of Greece's ageing German coach Otto Rehhagel.
