I was wavering between using the word “karma” or not when writing this blog, coz it reminds me of those unpleasant memories of Sharon Stone who made very disgusting remarks at Canne Film Festival when Wenchuan earthquake hit China and we were all sparing no efforts in saving lives there and helping them rebuild their homes. However, after I watched the game between England and Germany, it was the first word coming to my mind.
The old grudge between the two teams dated back to 1966, when God favored England and “helped”them win a World Cup champion title with a controversial goal which remains an unsolved mystery till now. 44 years later, similar thing happened and it was the Englishen who were out of luck this time. Neither the referee nor the sideman hadn’t seen the ball had fallen beyond the goal line, and the Englishmen had lost their chance to level the score. Frustrated by the incident, the English couldn’t muster themselves up during the rest of the game. Finally, they lost the game to Germans by 1:4, a fresh disgrace for them.
However, I do think the English players behaved quite like gentlemen, who had not lost temper and still contain themselves very well. They are real gentlmen, though they are doomed to lose the game due to inferior skills. The Germans have done much better than them, but they deserve our respect.
