David Odonkor is my new favorite German!

Which is not to say the Poland keeper Artur Boruc wasn't totally hard done by to watch the winner fly past him after having valiantly denied the Germans for so long. Which is not to say that Klose and Podolski and Klose and Ballack and Klose and Klose didn't spurn chance after chance. Which is not to say the woodwork wasn't working overtime.

Which is to say, after providing the assist for the winning goal in injury time in front of his home Borussia Dortmund fans Odonkor ran, not to the goalscorer Neuville as did Klose and Ballack, but directly to coach Jurgen Klinsmann, whom he embraced. Klinsmann had put him on as a substitute in the 64th minute.
