Germany and England

On Wednesday evening in Dortmund the German and England soccer teams played a friendly.

The German captain for the evening was Lukas Podolski. It was his last time to play for the German national team, hence the role of captain.

Germany won one - nill and Podolski scored the winning goal.

The game was drenched in all sorts of messages and irony.

Some England fans sang unpleasant/nasty songs.

Podolski was born in Poland and so could have played for either Germany or Poland.

Unfortunately the England fans behaved as they did on the day that was in it.

Why is it that on such occasions the German fans always behave impeccably well? And England.....?
