Germany crash out of world cup

 

Germany were, as usual, one of the favourites for the football world cup currently running in Russia, but they started badly with a loss to Mexico. This put pressure on them.

They were able to scratch out a win against Sweden with a last minute goal.

But they have just lost to South Korea 0-2, so have finished bottom of their pool.

This is a major upset – but sports can be like that.

    Apparently the last time England went further than Germany in a World Cup was in 1966. Let’s say confidence is high here.

        Sport, for a long time, meant shooting as in hunting (it did include fishing); what we call sport was called games. By 1877, both meanings were used,. But for a long time,. a sportsman was someone who shot things.

        Poor old Huns, Trump must be as mad as a wasp that they lost to Mexico. The Mexicans back home must be laughing like drains.
