Go Germany!

Germany won their World Cup game against England and Zurich celebrated. One of the ways that Zurich celebrates sports victories is by driving through the tram stop, Bellevue, honking and waving flags.

There was a party atmosphere down on the waterfront. Sidewalk cafes were packed and tvs were on everywhere. I didn't know whether the Swiss would be rooting for the Germans but they were.

And Germany pulled it out, 4-1 against England. I saw the first two goals and at least the first one, I felt bad for England's goalie.

About half the people I know here are German thanks to the Schengen Agreement and they are all pumped that Germany continues on.
