After the loss to Spain, German captain Michael Ballack has 10 runner-up finishes in his career, including second-place finishes this year with his club, Chelsea, in the English Premier League and UEFA Champions League. Germany finished second to Brazil in the 2002 World Cup final, for which Ballack was suspended because of accumulated yellow cards. Also in 2002, he finished second with Bayer Leverkusen in the Bundesliga, German Cup and Champions League.
