Germans look favourites to win gold

It is a good semifinal line up.Holland despite having
a 100% record will find it difficuilt against Germany.
Holland has been a lucky team throughout the tournament so far.Their 2-1 win over Australia was not convincing at all.Australia dominated the entire game and yet was not able to pull it off.Jamie Dwyer
had a good game but wasn't able to capitalise on the opportunities he had like the way he was able to do agaisnt India.Germans look solid like in all tournaments and haven't conceded more than 2 goals in a match(against Korea only).So I expect Germans to
make it to the finals(I hope so that it prevents the
Dutch from making a hatrick).The other match Aus-Spain
match will be anyone's game.The Germans(if they qualify) will have easy against Aussies like the 2002
world cup final.But if Spain does qualify it will be tough for them as they have had problems with Spain.
They suffered a 3-2 defeat at the 2002 to them in the
league stages before they were eventually crowned world champions.Their latest win against Spain was
in the European nations cup final(Continental championship title) in 2003 where they won on penalty strokes.
