A day in the country

I could not watch today's game, which seems to have been quite something (from the last 25 minutes that I managed to get). Germany could not break its losing streak against Italy and Italy proved that witchcraft worked by renewing the 12 years curse.

But that is OK, I have the pictures of the game and I sort of tried to recreate what must have been this charming outing in the country side (bonus points for each character you recognize).

There was a lot of inviting grass and some people took a chance to lay on it.

There was plenty of drink, if not food.

Spirits flew high.Boys played wild games.
Some neighbors came to watch the acrobatic displays.

New dance steps were tried out.

This man was happy but we do not know whether it was because he avoided police arrest.

And of course there are always some that take any opportunity to roll in the hay.

One thing is certain, Pizza sales were slow in Germany tonight....

The extra time was the most exciting part of the match, to be sure. Tired players making ever more desperate attempts, and actually creating some chances.

The preceding 90 minutes had a lot - intensity, tight and impressive plays on the midfield, super defending, but they were completely devoid of serious goal attempts.

Anyway - I'm happy! This was another game I was feeling completely neutral about. I should've watched it in Perugia, eh...

Quoi Daniel?!? You did not watched that wonderful game? Just because it was Italy and not France? What a snob!
