What are some of your favorite past celebrations?
Off the top of my head:
along with the dancing ones from other players/teams :)
Each of the 23 players has been given a cell phone with the corresponding numbers of their team-mates already entered in them - but so far they are unable to talk to each other.
"We each got a cell phone but they don't work at all," said central defender Arne Friedrich. "I can call my girlfriend in Berlin but cannot talk to other players."
His team-mate Per Mertesacker said he already found a way around it, calling them on their room phones in their five-star luxury hotel near Pretoria.
"Calling within the group has not been possible," he said. "It is the first time we have been given a cell phone with all the numbers in. So I just call room number to room number."
Germany kick off their World Cup campaign against Australia on Sunday and also play Serbia and Australia in Group D of the June 11-July 11 tournament.
I hope you enjoy it! :D
Also, OT but I'm stil traumatized over what happened to me this morning: I wanted to have a coke and steal some wifi from the terrace of the bar and sitting next to me was... MOURINHO! I mean, it wasn't him, his gray hair was really short and he was wearing cheap clothes... BUT THEY WERE COPIES!!! I freaked out a little bit. But I'm really proud of myself because I didn't call him names/shouted that I hate him/throw my drink at him/...
I kept giving him "discreet" side looks, but he obviously caught me. I thought about taking a pic of him with my webcam but then I realised that he could see my pc screen xDDDDDD
Do you think he has a secret twin? The good one, because obviously Jose's the evil one!! :S Anyway, I just needed to share because I know you'll appreciate it.
Chelsea will confirm the imminent departures of Joe Cole and Michael Ballack on Wednesday on free transfers after the pair failed to agree new contracts at Stamford Bridge.
The club have been negotiating with the players’ representatives over extensions to contracts that expire this summer for several months, but have been unable to agree terms, and the players will leave as free agents on July 1.
Chelsea’s surprise announcement will spark a scramble for their signatures, as despite falling out of favour in West London both players are very much in demand. Cole recovered from a disappointing domestic season to earn a place in England’s World Cup squad at the eleventh hour and is in contention to start their opening match of the tournament, against the United States on Saturday, while Ballack would have been in South Africa as Germany captain had he not suffered an ankle injury in Chelsea’s FA Cup Final win over Portsmouth.
Cole has attracted strong levels of interest from all of Chelsea’s leading rivals in the Premier League, with Manchester United, Arsenal, Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur set to follow up their initial inquiries over the next few days. Given Cole’s desire to stay in London and the appeal of being reunited with Harry Redknapp, White Hart Lane appears to be his most likely destination because Tottenham, unlike Arsenal and Liverpool, would have little problem matching his wage demands. An offer to work with Sir Alex Ferguson at Old Trafford would, however, be hard to turn down.
