Germany mourns after Bayern loss

Bayern Munich's dramatic defeat in Saturday's Champions League final on home turf still dominates the headlines and the pundit's ruminations.

This was the first time a club had the chance to win European soccer's top title on home turf. Bayern were the clear favorites but then Chelsea dashed their hopes and beat them in a penalty shootout on Saturday night. As the whole country seems to be in mourning, pundits wonder: Will the seven of Bayern players who are part of the German national squad be able to overcome their frustration to live up to expectations for the EURO 2012 tournament in Poland and Ukraine next month?
