|Can I get an "awww" My fav.thing about the EURO||for sure!|
Other than them I do not have a favorite team and the reason is pretty simply, I love the boys of the national team too much. When they play Bundesliga (germanys highest soccer league) they all play in different teams, some of them even play in other countries like spain. And it makes it hard for me to pick a team when some of my favorite people have to play against one another. I usually root for the team with my over all favorite player, which is our goal keeper Manuel Neuer. So that makes Bayern my Bundesliga team but rooting for them is not the same as rooting for Die Mannschaft, it just hasn't the same spirit behind it.
Anyway the Euro 2012 is coming to end on sunday and sadly for us, it already ended last night. Once again my boys gave their all but in the end it wasn't enough.
Jogi Löw made one change too much and the team was confused. Not bringing Miro Klose from the beginning was a big mistake in the worst moment possible but after all the good he as done who am I to blame him too much. After all soccer is a game and the luck just wasn't on our side. Otherwise we would have scored one of those many times we shot the ball in the direction of the goal. Let's be honest our team wasn't at their best last night but they were still better than so many others. And while italy was strong, the boys never gave up and fought until the end, that takes a lot of strength and tells me that they have an amazing team spirit.
In the end it wasn't enough and it is a shame because they would have deserved it so much (and hate me for it, more than italy or spain). It just wasn't our time yet, however I firmly believe that our time will come soon. This team (and I don't mean germany in general but this team in particular) will do amazing things in the near future. They are still so young, have so much to learn but are already so good.
