Wolfgang, regarding the German game as an Anglo-Scot the 'home perspective' you mentioned was not a concern. Apart from cricket I support any nation that plays against England because as a neutral living in England I hate the press coverage that despises and ridicules 'johnny foreigner'. What on earth does a game of football have to do with the previous conflicts/wars against Argentina or Germany? They just pander to the petty minded half wits that read the Sun & the Star who then run riot when visiting other countries because they cannot get an English breakfast.
I think I'll stop and have a lie down.
