World Cup: KICKTV's "Ultimate Group G Preview" – Germany, Episode 2 | SIDELINE

"The Ultimate Group G Preview – The Group of Death," a 15-part KICKTV video series in which Conrad travels to every Group G nation — Germany, Portugal, the United States and Ghana — is back.

Basically, KICKTV faux journalist extraordinaire (his words, not mine) Jimmy Conrad is gallivanting around the four Group G countries, having a blast and telling you everything you need to know ahead of this summer's World Cup in Brazil.

In this episode, Conrad really gets down to business, chatting with some of the country's biggest Die Mannschaft reporters. And a special admission about the 2002 World Cup quartfinal between Germany and the United States.

"The Germans were so lucky. So lucky."

Many thanks go out to Karl-Heinz Wild, chief reporter at Kicker, for those words. We've have been waiting 12 years to hear you — or anyone from Germany — say that.

Jimmy finds the time to get a quick game in as well. And wouldn't you believe it, Conradinho's still got it.
