Tell us that foreigners score our goals
Winning the FIFA World Cup felt like Christmas, Easter and Karneval all at once. After so many years of national restraint, it was a very liberating feeling to wave our flags proudly again. But as with any championship team, there are haters all around. One of the most popular comments about our national team is “Tzz, don’t get too excited – foreigners scored your goals!” No question about it, that pisses us off. I have two words for you: Thomas Müller. Yes, many of our players have an immigrant background. But this is Team Germany, and if you’ve worked hard enough to get to that level, you are German through and through. Seeing players from different origins, singing the German national anthem together, with the eagle on their chest, is a point of national pride, no matter where our players are born. Berlin has more kebab restaurants than Istanbul, so come here and feel the spirit before judging our sense of multiculturalism.
