Liverpool defender Carragher: Maybe Germany stupid for finishing first!

Liverpool veteran Jamie Carragher has dismissed Franz Beckenbauer's criticisms of England.

Beckenbauer branded England "stupid" for finishing second and setting up today's clash with Germany.

"Well, they may have made a mistake by finishing top of their group and facing us, you never know!" Carragher says with a grin.

"There are always mind games before big games. It makes for good copy [in newspapers] for everyone, but when the game gets going, I don't think we'll be thinking about what Franz Beckenbauer has said."
