the Germans love (almost) everything about the Swedes
We're in the second half of the Germany vs. Sweden game in Munich this evening and Germany is leading 2:0 in the 70th minute, meaning they have a pretty good chance of winning, but both teams are good and this is going to be a really tough game for many reasons.
I was reading this morning in the newspaper that Germans apparently have an obsession with two countries: Italy and...Sweden. Over two million Germans travel to Sweden each year to take advantage of the wide open spaces and the peaceful, joyful Scandinavian way of life that Germany just can't offer them. What they're looking for is a kind of fairy tail anti-Germany, and Sweden is where they find it. Volvo, Ikea, Pippi Longstocking - Sweden has it all.
As the title of my post says, the Germans love everything about the Swedes...except their football team.
