On Tuesday our bloggers took on English accusations the German team had developed an unfair advantage by having extra time with the tournament’s new ball made by German sporting goods juggernaut Adidas. We also found a possible connection between Germany’s Eurovision success and the World Cup and even tackled the enigma who is Günter Netzer.
