Coach Joachim Low said that the team was crying real tears in the dressing room. He said "It was as quiet as a graveyard in the room". So why are they reacting in such a non-typical way if it did not hurt them. I lived in Germany for a few years and I never saw Germans cry, not even my girlfriend who was German. I saw other people cry, but not Germans.<quoted text>
"Africa crushed Germany. It must be very hard for Germans to see and accept something like this." - Sure, this very fact must hurt them. Not. I assure you they aren't like that and woe their performance, the whole team of Italy and their Italian jinx. Besides, they've got an African player on their roster too (well, he's half-Ghanaian) if you haven't noticed. Beside him, there are two Poles, two Turks, a Spaniard (half-Spaniard?) and a Tunesian (half-Tunesian) there. With that in mind you'd think they must've grown pretty indifferent as to what players' roots are by now, eh?
Germany may have players from other countries but they have to fit into the German mould. Remember we are talking about Germany and this how they do things there. They have to play German style football.
Indifferent to players roots? I thought Germany always had a Turkish problem.
