Group E

Germany vs Saudi Arabia
Germany couldn't have hoped of getting a better start to their 2002 World Cup campaign, even if the eight goals scored in Sapporo were against lowly Saudi Arabia.

Germany vs Ireland
Germany paid the price for thinking the game was already won and suffering a lack of concentration at the back, as Robbie Keane slipped through Linke and Ramelow to smash a drive past Ollie Kahn's left ear.

Cameroon vs Germany
With 16 bookings and two sending-offs we were lucky that this game still had two teams on the pitch at the final whistle.
