Soccer is catching on in the States and there has been quite some excitement about it. I actually watched the USA win today and I was never much of a fan of the sport even when I lived in Germany. I remember everyone going crazy during the "Weltmeisterschaft". I am exhausted just from watching.

I congratulate all the players whatever team they are in. To see the perspiration on their faces makes me feel the conditions are not suitable for 90 minutes running around the pitch. I'm a "Possie" ..a Pom that became an Aussie, so I always have dual nationality in any sport. I feel for the Brazilian people though having to live in slum conditions and hope any profit gained from the world cup will be used to make their living conditions better. Makes us appreciate what we have doesn't it??........Ann

Germany has won 4:0. We had some real good players but we would not got this result without our keeper Manuel Neuer and the player Thomas Müller. Müller has shot 3 of the 4 goals! Awesome guy :o)

I have two hearts in my body this evening. We have a real big community of Portugese born people here in my home-town Gross-Umstadt and many of us are watching the game on the outdoor
screen of the Portugese Club. I am sad for the Portugese friends
and hope the German players will not become too arrogant
Now I go to watch the second half - Maria
