I've lost track and I'm proud of it.
Does anyone really want to know under what conditions Hansi Flick's team will reach the round of 16 and how many goals will we have to score against Costa Rica if Japan wins against Spain in the parallel game?
I read that we can't afford a draw or a defeat.
We go through with a win by at least two goals if Spain and Japan draw.
We go through a win by one goal if Spain and Japan draw and then Japan have scored fewer goals overall.
I read these sentences, but the letters blur in front of my eyes, like the lecture on higher mathematics in the basic course "Environmental Protection Technology".
They are the scenarios of hell.
I'm looking forward to the game.
Maybe we'll get there, maybe not.
I hope that the ARD moderators will explain to me in good time what will happen.
The national team's wives were allowed to go to their husbands' hotel before the game against Costa Rica. The DFB chef said he doesn't serve any red meat on the day of the game, only poached fish, pasta and vegetables.
And rice pudding.
The chef's name is Anton Schmaus.
Everything suddenly matters.
Everyone seems well prepared except me.
And that's good.
If Germany and Spain have the same number of points, goal difference and number of goals scored, then Uli Hoeneß' tax advisor will decide.
