Easy meat

As almost everyone on the planet should be aware of by now the Soccer World Cup 2006 kicks off here in Germany in under 2 weeks. In preparation Germany took on the mighty Luxemburg yesterday and beat them 7-0. The three Werder Bremen players in the squad played well, with Klose and Frings getting on the score sheet. The result was no surprise, and in the following week Germany will face Japan and Columbia in friendly games. These teams should provide stiffer opposition.

In the women’s game FCC Frankfurt beat Potsdam in the UEFA Cup final. The Juniorette found this quite exciting as she will hopefully be attending a 5 day soccer school for girls held by FCC Frankfurt in the autumn.

What chance do you think germany has of making it to the final? The last world cup they surprised me. I didn't think they would make it out of the group round. Before they beat the USA a couple of months ago. It had been almost 2 years since they had beaten a top 10 team.

Germany have always been a tournament team. They seem to excel in the big competions. So even though they look a bit ordinary at the moment I am sure they will do well in the world cup.
I wouldn't like to make predictions but I think they will make it out of the group stages and will get further than England! :)

What did the German do when Germany won the world cup?

Switched off his xbox and went to bed!

Well, I laughed!

Maribeth - She's been to a couple of soccer camps in Marburg and she really enjoyed that. She's really excited about the Frankfurt camp.

Ms Mac - I suspect you heard that from your sons. It made me smile as well! :)

Germany will do well as always. Semis at least. But they could have had a tougher warmup! Luxembourg!?

I'm not a sports fan at all... but I did buy a world cup sweatshirt & cute little german window-clippy flag thing as a show of deutsch pride.

I have to pretend I am cheering for Italy here, but I really do hope the german guys can pull the usual 'in tournament' stunt after convincing everyone so well that they sux with the performance of the last months ;)

Team Yaya - I hope Germany do well and I bet it should be a good atmosphere in Italy for the World Cup. Italians love football :)
