Khedira, Cacau, Özil & Co.: Germany’s cosmopolitan team

Brazil, Turkey, Tunisia, Poland, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Spain, Ghana, and Nigeria: Germany’s World Cup team is cosmopolitan and a mirror of German society at the same time. More than 15 million people in Germany have a migration background.

 

The same applies to Mesut Özil (22) from Werder Bremen and Serdar Tasci (23) from VfB Stuttgart. Both were born in Germany to Turkish parents, and they’re the first German footballers with Turkish roots to belong to the World Cup team. The midfield player Özil is seen as something of a magician with the ball and has already won one international title. In 2009 he was voted “Man of the Match” after winning the final against England in the Under-21 European Football Championship – a prime example of successful integration through sport.

This team must now be favourites to win the cup. After completely outplaying England in the last round they did the same to Argentina in the quarter final today. The have the skill and also work hard for each other.

Because of Özil, I support Germany. But they will probably will play against Spain in the semifinal and I am not sure about that match. Mueller misses the next match who was the key player in today´s match. German team will miss him too in that match.

Özil is a German citizen who chose to play for Germany when he was eligible for Turkish National Team. In my opinion, he is no different from any other German player and I certainly won´t move a finger to support his team. I am even a bit pissed off with the way he defended his choice, he said no one invited him to the Turkish National Team when this was not the case.

Why do we have these tournaments among nations? It is because it is fun watching nations compete with one another. What kind of competition would it be if Turks played for Germany and vice versa?

Pffff, let everybody support who they want to support for their own reasons! I support Portugal in every tournament (after Holland) because I once met some really nice Portugese people druing the European Cup in Holland. They told me that I HAD to watch their game that night, and so the Portugese were the ones that got me football crazy. Before that day I was just irritated by football, since I didn´t watch any games and just heard the annoying noise of screaming people. I don´t have Portugese roots, there are not Dutch people in the Portugese team, but I´m still supporting them.

Actually when it´s about football I always support Germans (after Turky) no whether Özil is in the squad or not. But I like to see some good stuff from him as well at the same time.  His drive and pass during the 4th goal  was something to remember in the Germany-England game.

Yesterday also I waited some good stuff from him and I had an eye on him. He was good in the second half and assisted the 4th goal just like in England game.
