The lion has been defeated! It´s over. Germany has beaten England 4-1 in a thrilling match. And it was 1966 again! Ball hit the bar, ball fell to the ground - only this time clearly behind that line and not on or in front back then. So technically the final score should be 4-2. It was a beautiful match, England´s performance was poor, its defence non-existent, Germans player did very well, but at the end there can only be one winner.
After the match I walked to the seafront, naturally wearing my Deutschland T-Shirt. A man with a very strong Australian accent approached me:
"How did it go for Germany?" he asked.
"Pretty well." I replied. "We won 4-1. Well, it should have really been 4-2 but anyway, Germany won."
"Should you rather not be wearing this T-Shirt then? Are you not afraid?" he asked.
"I am not afraid." I replied. "And to be honest, being a woman helps as well."
We said our goodbyes, I, sat down on the beach with my friend (England supporter) and we had a few beers. When I walked back home a mischievous looking man raised his voice, pretending to talk to someone: "We´ve lost against the fucking Germans AGAIN." He said. His son (who must have been not older than 5) echoed: "Yeah but we won the fucking World War!" For a split second I thought of asking the small boy when World War II actually occured. But I left it. I did not want to spoil my good mood.
Take a look at this video I found on YouTube: Merkel and Cameron sitting together watching the match. And because YouTube has always comments that make one´s day, here are my top 5:

4. @WorldsFinest20 lol "You won this match, but remember, we beat you in the war!" This sounds like a broken record, and it's getting old. Take a look at your calendar and realize, we're in the year 2010 now. I know it's hard to understand for guys like you, but the enemy doesn't exist anymore. Just take that broom out of your ass and get real. :) (by Lintflas)

1. I would like to say on behalf of all reasonable English people: Sorry for all the ignorant comments left for this video. Germany is a great nation and have a wonderful footballing history which we English would love to have. Many ignorant English people like to bring up the war in order to score points over Germans. This is pathetic, stupid and displays a lack of understanding of the circumstances of that most terrible period in history. (by Jonboy20)
