Germany 4, Portugal 0: Bad opening week for Iberians playing in Salvador. Mueller scores a hat trick, and Portugal, not a deep team to begin with, sees one defender sent off and two others injured. The score does not begin to describe how one-sided the game was. That the losers were the fourth-ranked team on the planet, acc. to FIFA, is perhaps an indication that the system the world body uses is yet another thing about it that should be reformed...fourth straight time, and fifth time in last seven, that Germany has scored at least four goals in their opener.
