Semifinals again!

About half a year ago, the German soccer team reached the semifinals of the world championship in Germany - it was a huge party here, but, as you may remember, it was Italy who eventually became world champion. Tonight, another German team made it to the semifinals of a world championship taking place in Germany, by beating the acting champion!

Well, in case you didn't get the news - no shame, even here not everybody is following what is going on, and there are no crowded public viewing areas this time. The game is handball, and the German team wasn't a big favourite for the title, so far.

Now, the next match will be the semifinals against France on Thursday.

Good luck, German team!

    You will perfectly understand I can not share your feelings. We, the spaniards, decided yesterday we should find someone to blame. Finally the guilty was found: the referee!;-)

    It was a nice match.
    All the best.r.
