Germany coach Joachim Loew thinks the "Disgrace of Gijon" was too long ago for Algeria to seek revenge in Monday's second-round World Cup match in Porto Alegre.Loew said Saturday that only two of his players were even born at the time of the notorious match at the 1982 World Cup in Spain between Germany and Austria, which ended in a convenient 1-0 win for Germany that eliminated Algeria.Germany scored in the 10th minute and for the remaining 80 minutes the two teams just knocked the ball around as the result allowed both to advance at the expense of Algeria, which had defeated Germany 2-1 in their opening match.Germany has played only twice against Algeria and has lost both times.
