Germany v Italy...cue the insults!

It's t-minus a few hours to the big match: Italy v. Germany. I have tried to remain neutral, but I just received an email from a friend in Frankfurt. Attached, was a video entitled "Training der Italiener". The translation? German trash talk!

Here's a link.

This will be a truly strange soccer viewing experience. Typically, when playing Germany, the English fans' trash talking consists of WW2 movie theme songs, or the crowd-pleaser: "Stand up if you won the war". What taunts will the Italian fans concoct if they jump to an early lead? Perhaps "Stand up if you can make a proper Bolognese sauce"? Nah, doesn't have the same ring to it.

I'll report back here tomorrow and let you know.
