Meier blames Fifa. And Blatter took it personally. Meier was congratulated by one of the German tv hosts, because he has managed to be called names by Blatter. Really got under his skin.

That might have a lot to do with the Netherlands just losing to Argentina.

It was the same for Germany in 2010, they lost to Spain in the semi-final and so supported the Dutch in the final.

I don't think the German players have forgotten the shit they got after the Sweden game in 2012. "They arrogantly underestimated the opposition" was the media's main tune back then.
