From Spiegel International, a collection of essential football quotations from Germany's best. An example from Lukas Podolski, scorer of Germany's two goals against Poland:
Fussball ist wie Schach, nur ohne Würfel - Football is like chess, only without the dice.
Or this prophetic comment from Greece's German coach, Otto Rehhagel:
Mal verliert man und mal gewinnen die anderen - Sometimes you lose, sometimes the others win.
And keeping up the high standards of football journalism, here is Heribert Fassbender:
Es steht im Augenblick 1:1. Aber es hätte auch umgekehrt lauten können. - The score is currently 1:1. But it could also have been the other way around.
