From Deutschland to Beirut

Black, Red and Yellow… the colors of the lines of latitude between Lebanon and Germany after the amazing win and humiliation of the Argentinean National Soccer Team. German Soccer Team fans marched in one of the biggest non-political celebration.

Beirut has witnessed celebrating the historical win.

Motorcycles, cars, vans, trucks and pedestians, carried the German flags honking and cheering “Germany! Germany! Germany!”.. Families painted their children’s face with the German flag, vuvuzella’s noise heard through the streets of Ras Beirut, Hamra, and Achrafieh. The fire works splashed for hours and hours in celebration making it one special day for Lebanese.

The Germans Machines booked a one way ticket to Diego Maradona and the Argentinean team back home after crushing them in one of the most unexpected results in the World Cup Matches. The German scored four times, through Muller, twice by Klose and Friedrich. The Argentinean team seemed very disorganized and affected by the media war launched lately by Maradona and could not control the attacks of Germany all

through the game. Germany now has qualified to the Semi-finals to face the winner from Spain and Paraguay.

The Germany and Argentina game has taken a very nervous and sensitive turn after the media war between Maradona and Shweisentiger and Luther Matheus from the other side. The German win is another record in the series of wins Germany has accomplished through the decades after 1990 in the finals, and 2006 in the Quarter finals.
