The new Wembley

England faced Germany at the new Wembley Stadium on Wednesday evening with Germany winning 2-1. The result I think was fair and I found myself supporting Germany more than England. Germany played well considering the team was so understrength due to injuries to key players, and England looked in parts a lot better than they have played recently. Overall I was happy with the result. At least there wasn't a penalty shootout!

Earlier in the evening the German Womens team played and beat Switzerland 7-0 in an European Championship qualifying match. The German team played very well with Birgit Prinz in superb form. With the world cup only 2 weeks away that certainly bodes well for die Frauen.

Sounds very fun and exciting. And wow - Germany must have a great team with the women.

It also must be much more exciting when you have so many people into the game. Our local team one here, after a 2 month winless streak.. To make matters worse, they were champs last year!

C'est la vie!

Oooh you're well going native fella! Funnily enough the only time I ever supported England was when I was in Germany during Euro 96 and I was in a bar in Rostock run by mates of mine. The shite I took after that, feckers!

Normally over here I support the Wuerstfresser because I'm 1/4 German and it winds everyone up!

We watched the game while in Ireland with our friends. My friend Brendan is a liverpool fan. He could not get over how England lost. And then in the same night Ireland beat Denmark!
