I also wanted to get out to put twenty quid on Ecuador to win - you can get 5 to 1. Bargain!
ETA - 3 minutes in and Germany have scored already
(had to go to a meeting and missed all this)
42 mins: GOAL: Ecuador 0-2 Germany
ETA - 57 mins Germany score a third goal - my predictions are now looking pretty feeble
ETA - the Radio 5 commentators say the referee looks like Liam Neeson. gosh.
ETA - BBC text site says 'Ecuador, who rested five players, are literally a shadow of the side that won their first two games.' They obviously don't care whether they meet Sweden or England next
AND FINALLY - Germany won three nil, ahem, glad I didn't put twenty quid on Ecuador
