I don't think the 2006 overachieved, I was at the SF at the min, not QF. I recall even JK was tasked to get the team to the SF at the min. you don't have to be a star player or a link up to have done well. You make it sound like Klose was no quality player in 2002. Lehmann was the 2nd keeper, don't think he played a single game was all Kahn. Hamann and Schneider to me were in tier 2 of that 2002 WC. I guess we all have our own perspective for the same tournament.
