Maria’s Beer Balcony in Germany

We had a spontaneous visit by two very dear friends to watch the soccer match Germany-Italy together at our home. Before the match started at 9pm, I got Peter to sit with me on the beer balcony.

My, oh my, what an exciting soccer match this was! Italy and Germany both have very good teams. But in the end, it was down to nerve-wracking penalty shootouts. Italy played a strong game against Germany, the current world champions, but we finally lifted the spell and beat Italy for the first time in history.

Score: Germany – Italy 1:1 (1:1, 0:0) n.V., 6:5 i.E.

 n.V. = nach Verlängerung (overtime)

i.E. = im Elfmeterschießen (penalty shootouts)
