Samaras Vindicated; Finally!


Joking aside, this was one of the most exciting games of the tournament so far. I watched it on German TV. Towards the end of the game, the German commentator clearly took sides with the Greeks. In the subsequent discussion, there was clear happiness for Greece's having won. That says everything!

Congratulations!



PS: a commentator below pointed out that the text says: "New Dictatorship (with a swastica), we continue selling out (the country)". "We said we will raise the country higher. This is what we meant". Had I known this before, I would not have posted it (I just thought it was a funny picture). I apologize!

  1. And you should have read the venomous articles of the german press, BEFORE the match... This should make the "change of heart" of the german commentator even more interesting.

  2. The image you posted, isn't very flattering for Antonis Samaras. It reads "New Dictatorship (with a swastica), we continue selling out (the country)". "We said we will raise the country higher. This is what we meant".

  3. A nice gesture on the part of the german EU parliament office in Twitter. They wished "good luck" to the greek team. You can see the tweets here:

    Unfortunately, as the greek EU parliament office tweeted back, the match was 1 day earlier and Greece had already won.

    Still, a valiant mediatic attempt of "galantry", unfortunately ruined by details.
