A nice soccer game tonight, in the Wembley Stadium. I was thinking of hanging a German flag out of a window of the cottage, just to "show some flag", but I guess this would have been treated like a sacrilege here in this country where the passions about soccer are an essential part of many people's life.
This seemed to be an important game, even UK's prime minister Gordon Brown and Germany's chancellor Angela Merkel attended.
The German team won. And the mood among the reporters here in the UK who have to comment on this is quite muted.
