Germany team take tube to Wembley
England’s star players might have a reputation for being prima donnas but that’s not an accusation you could ever level at their opponents on Tuesday night, Germany.
Remarkably, in an age when millionaire footballers are flown round the globe in private jets and driven around by chauffeurs, Germany coach Joachim Loew took his squad on the tube on Monday.
Bemused commuters spotted Loew and his players as they jumped on the underground to make their way up to Wembley for a training session at the national stadium.
Let’s just hope the refreshingly down-to-earth Germans didn’t stand on the left side of the escalator - a pet peeve of furious London commuters…
The German team’s official Twitter account posted the best photo of the tube trip. (http://uk.eurosport.yahoo.com/blogs/the-rio-report/germany-squad-tube-wembley-224306176.html)
Who said we aren’t efficient?
Benedict Cumberbatch might be playing Hamlet on stage in London next fall (2014). I will have graduated by then but I think I’ll have to come back to London for that.
Ok, if this really happens I’m booking a plane ticket straight away. OMG imagine his voice in a big theatre. Okay, I need to stop thinking about this.
