Greece gains respect but Germany wins at soccer
Question of the Day
Earlier, a German deputy government spokesman was peppered with questions about the match and asked whether Merkel would feel the need to tone down any goal celebrations, because of the eurozone crisis.
“I think it depends a bit on how the game goes, but I think you will see that she is glad if there’s a goal on the right side,” Georg Streiter said.
Streiter also shrugged off a question as to whether Merkel would consider herself partly responsible if German loses.
“I think you would be loading up the chancellor, who already has plenty of packages to carry, with an unjustified package,” he said. “She’s a spectator.”
