World Cup fever strikes

Food, glorious food…

The World Cup is everywhere. Flags adorn cars, windows, faces. On the way in and once again on the way out of shops, you can pick up leis, facepaint and special edition drinks. There is no way to oversee that this country loves football and loves their national team. Whenever Germany score a goal you can hear the cheers and fireworks go off in the distance.

England is the same, but I haven’t seen supermarkets gettin involved like this:

Yogurt pots in the colours of the German flag!

Hard-boiled eggs getting excited about the World Cup!

What a great idea! I was very amused when I saw these, but now I’m a little disappointed I didn’t buy any.

Tomorrow’s match is Germany – v – USA. It’s a strange match, as the USA’s coach is Klinsman, Germany’s favourite footballer. He even played in the UK for some time and seems to be loved around the world. If the end score is a draw, they both go through to the next round, so many people here think both teams will play half-heartedly and almost as friends, rather than enemies on the pitch. I guess we have to wait until tomorrow to find out…
