A worldview is a set of claims that purport to be based on ultimate reality.

Germany 3, Portugal 1

Germany’s lead is doubled just after the hour mark when Armando Petit deflects Schweinsteiger’s free-kick past Ricardo 

Two long-range efforts from Bastian Schweinstieger ensured hosts Germany overcame Portugal to claim third place.

Germany took the lead when midfielder Schweinstieger cut in from the left and drilled in a swerving shot.

The Germans went two up when the lively Schweinsteiger’s free-kick was sliced into his own net by Armando Petit.

Schweinsteiger sealed the victory with another rasping shot from 25 yards and Nuno Gomes headed Portugal a late consolation after a Luis Figo cross.

Goalkeeper Oliver Kahn came in for his 86th cap, while Figo, who was rumoured to have had an argument with coach Luiz Felipe Scolari before the match, was relegated to the substitutes’ bench.
