Speaking of Panini’s sticker album:

Of the 11 players selected by Panini to be featured for the German National Team 3 played in the English FA Cup final yesterday and won. Podolski, Özil and Mertesacker. 7 played in the DFB Pokal, Lahm, Neuer, Kroos, Boateng, Götze, and Müller for Bayern who won toe Cup and the Double this season and Hummels for Dortmund. And the 11th player is Klose, second highest overall goal scorer in the World Cup tournaments of all time.

On paper this is going to be a good World Cup for Germany. They so need to win another trophy!
