Again, thank you, James (though I would have preferred thanking you for congrats instead of commiserations
) - this one is just not my lucky year. First the disappointment at what happened at the Grammy awards and now this - although I must say our team achieved a lot more than most people would have dared to hope before the World Cup. Hey, I mean, ours is among the four best
Though it did hurt that we were knocked out by pure shrewdness and strategy - I personally would have preferred to get kicked out by Brazil or even England
The "squadra azzurra" just had our team tire out, to then deliver the death stab during the extra time. I've had a good cry tonight, but we should say "thank you, Jürgen Klinsmann, you've done a good job" and look ahead rather than "back in anger". And now I'll be with Portugal - I hope they'll be luckier.
Oh yes, you English certainly know who to pick from the Bundesliga
. Ballack, Lehmann... not bad. I wish you interesting matches in your premier league next season
