Green Point Stadium Cape Town – Table Mountain at Sunset
Chancellor Angela Merkel can barely watch… (believe it…)
what a cool lady! After the first goal she looked around, then stood up
almost apologetically and applauded in a very ladylike fashion.
A few goals later she could care less – jumped up and gave hand shakes all around

Immediately after Argentina’s 4-0 quarterfinal loss to Germany on Saturday, Maradona was understandably upset. And according to Argentina’s Diarios y Noticias, he let a group of German fans know it. A translation of their report:
“Argentina national team coach Diego Maradona had an altercation with German fans after the end of the match that marked the elimination of said team from the 2010 South Africa World Cup.
Apparently upset over post game celebrations by fans located behind the Argentinian bench, Maradona approached and scolded them, until Dalma, one of his daughters, entered the field and contained him.”

He would go on to say that this loss was “the most disappointing moment in my life” which shows just how devastated he must have been as he walked off the pitch and saw German fans in red and yellow wigs partying like it’s Oktoberfest in July right behind him.
