german girls

Did you know the Women’s Football World Cup is taking place out in Shanghai? Nor did I until, quite by chance, I caught the match between Germany and Argentina last night. What a match. The German ladies only won 11-0. 11 bloody nil! I don’t know how developed the game is in Argentina but you’d expect them to have a decent side given the footballing traditions in the country. I have to admit that their goalie gifted the Germans the first and eleventh goals but numbers 2 to 10 were belters. And some of the play was really excellent. Honest. Some of the girls looked pretty good too. Honest. Sorry cheap joke. Who have the Germans got next? Err just England. Of course. What is it about us and the Germans (apart from two terrible wars of course)? Anyway I might just check it out. Our national teams seem to be on a roll but it could all end differently by the end of this week of course….Come on Engerland.
