World Cup in London: Germany

Wednesday, July 09, 2014

Last night I went to watch Germany-v- Brazil with German fans at Zeitgeist, a German bar in Vauxhall.

And what a match to choose to support Germany, as they pounded Brazil 7-1.

The bar was super-packed and sold out, so I hung around on the street outside.

In spite of this, the atmosphere was infectious from the bar within.

But in spite of all the surprise, joy and celebrations as all the goals poured in to the Brazilian net, there was still room for a few (jaded) German stereotypes.

And, as always, the best entertainment comes from watching how other people react and enjoy the game.
