Und schön weiter “la ola” – die (mexikanische) Welle üben! Wir sind im Finale!! Egal, ob es Spanien oder Russland sein wird, wir werden siegen!! 🙂
30/06 Edit: OK, wir haben verloren, doch die Spanier haben wirklich verdient gewonnen! Genau, Südafrika, wir kommen 2010!
For those wondering … no, I’m not a big football (US = soccer) fan. But when it comes to World and European Championships, one just have to join in on the collective fun and public viewing. Last night Germany (our colors are black/red/gold) won the semi-finals vs. Turkey 3:2. Not the best game, but quite a thriller especially towards the end. The Turks have proved to be masters of the last-minute goals. Last night they did it again in the 85th minute, 2:2. But Germany copied them and in the very last minute Philip Lahm kicked Germany into the finals with a beautiful 3:2 goal! Tonight is the other semi-final game, Spain vs. Russia (yes, sports brings us all closer together! hehe) and Sunday night will then be … our final victory – hopefully! 😉
30/06 Edit: Thanks for the heads up. OK, we lost 0:1 and didn’t get the trophy, the Spaniards just played better football. Watch out though for the Germans in 2010 for the World Championship in South Africa!
