In the absence of Chris Bruce, it falls to me to keep you abreast of current 
happenings in Germany.

Since you don't follow soccer, you won't know that on Tuesday Inka Grings 
scored twice for Germany and Perpetua Nkwoncha got the only goal in the Nigeria 
v Canada fixture.    

The Nigerian team has a coach who asks God to grant heterosexuality to her 
players:

I like the name of the goalkeeper.

German players took a different approach to approximately the same problem:
