What They're Saying: Mark Geiger

“It was very strange, with the way [Brazil] walked out on the field and just their emotional level, you could feel it and it was different from the other matches they played. When Germany started dominating the game the way they did and putting in the goals, the benches actually were very calm. The crowd was not an issue, and the players, to Brazil’s credit, didn’t lash out against Germany. They finished the game.”
