Germany: champion of the world-cup of hearts!

“What’s a cup worth when you’ve won 80 million hearts?” (photo source Focus.de)

That’s how Germany is celebrating it’s win of the 3rd place of the world cup. The wave of public euphoria just went on tonight. On German TV, a studio guest said “the 3rd place is being celebrated as if the first place is worth nothing!”

An amazing party was erupted with the team in the stadium after the medals were given. Oliver Kahn said goodbye to international football (and to the soon-to-retire Luis Figo as well).

The German president, in a TV interview, said that the world cup has shed new light on the friendly and welcoming side of Germany for the world to see. He talked about the positive sense of patriotism that was sweeping the nation and how the German flag was raised without making a political or nationalistic statement out of it.

And everyone wants Klinsmann to continue as trainer..

I’ll leave at that..

    That’s the attitude when a weaker team makes it to the the semifinals. They believe they won the bronze rather than losing the gold (and silver)

    What the heck are they all happy and cuddly about? The Germany of old (basically West Germany) would consider this world cup a failure. “What’s a cup worth when you’ve won 80 million hearts?” Huh ? Those are words you never dreamt of hearing in the days of Franz Beckenbauer, Gerd Müller, and Lothar Matthäus. And this is coming from an ENGLAND supporter!
