We want germany!! :eekani:
USA is unlucky to draw with the portugirls. judging by my experience ,that kind of bad luck is an omen....
But when he was asked what he thought about Dempsey’s nickname, “Captain America,” Götze made a rather shocking statement about the match.
“Look, I appreciate the USA team, like I said. But that nickname is offensive to us Germans,” Götze explained. “The superhero `Captain America’ is always depicted killing Germans. I like the player, but not the name.”
Götze was told by the radio host that the fictional character only killed Nazi Germans, and that’s where the controversy stirred. “Nazi Germans are still Germans. I had family that fought in the war. I respect these players and I respect the USA team, but this isn’t about football, not to me. It’s about history. It’s about Germany seeking vengeance for America’s war crimes during the second World War. And it’s about how snooty they get about that war, how they make Germany out to be the bad guys, and that’s a reputation that haunts us even today.”
When the host asked Götze about the holocaust, the 22 year-old midfielder got rather angry. “That always gets brought up. It shouldn’t be mentioned at all, but you people always bring it up. Did I gas the Jews? Did I stick them in camps? No. Shut up about it. Look, this game isn’t about that. It’s about the bad perception people have of Germans. You all think we just sit around, drinking beer and eating sauerkraut and complaining about Jews. I’m not saying that never happens, but it’s an unfair stereotype.”
“We’re taking the USA down. This is the third world war for me,” Götze concluded. “I’m not playing for personal glory. I’m playing to pay tribute to those fallen Germans murdered by invading American occupiers. F–k the USA! But not their players. I like their players.”
