EU-presidency vs. EU-commission

No, not a boring fight over the allocation of competences, football!

Austrian chancellor Schüssel, Turkish prime minister Erdogan, Croatian prime minister Sanader, Slovenian prime minister Jansa, EU-commission president Barroso, guest-players like Peruvian president Toledo Manrique and also non-politicians (NT-coaches Zlatko Kranjcar, Fatih Terim and Josef Hickersberger) met for an indoor game in Vienna, where we have the Latin America summit at the moment.

Pictures from the game (from orf.at):

Alejandro Toledo Manrique, President of Peru


Recep Tayyip Erdogan, Prime Minister of Turkey, and Wolfgang Schüssel, Chancellor of Austria


Calin Popescu-Tariceanu, Prime Minister of Romania (in blue in the middle) and Schüssel (in white at the right)


The match ended with a diplomatic 7:7, by the way, Erdogan scored a few for Schüssel's FC Europe, so much for symbolism.

I'm not normally a praying man, but if you're up there, please save me, Superman.

This images captures what the EU is all about. The big guy with a huge EU t-shirt, kicks the little guy without an EU shirt in the knee, with the ball half a meter away. :irritate:

The fans were excited:









(This clown is the Greek Prime Minister. Note that NOONE else is celebrating.)

If you click Barroso, you can watch ehm... "highlights". Don't know for how long the video is there, I suppose only 1-2 days.

If anyone else finds some more about the game, it would be appreciated. I read that the turkish media was quite interested.

The evil Eastern European kicks the poor little Austrian while the others are just watching, some people over here would agree with you.
