World Cup (Germany)

By Taylor Cronkhite

Rules of soccer and how it's played

Soccer is played by trying to kick a soccer ball into the opposing team's goal. With this there is absolutely no use of the hands and arms unless the ball is being throw back into the field. The only player allowed to use their hands is the goalie, and they may only do this if they are within their goal box. To play an official game, a team may have no less than seven players and no more than eleven. The ball is dribbled down the field or is passed using the inside of the foot. The game lasts 45 minuets per half plus overtime.

Germany's National Anthem

Facts


  1. The first stanza was sadly misinterpreted during the rule of Nazi Germany, where it was used to imply that they thought of themselves as the best over every other country, when it actually referred to their unification of their nation.
  2. Only the third stanza of their national anthem is legal to sing.
  3. For a short time before and after Germany split they did not use this nation anthem. In fact they had no national anthem at all.
Lyrics


Germany, Germany above all, above everything in the world

When, for protection and defense, it always takes a brotherly stand together

From the Meuse to the Memel, from the Adige to the Belt

Germany, Germany above all, above everything in the world

Germany, Germany above all, above everything in the world


German women, German loyalty, German wine, and German song

Shall retain in the world, their old beautiful chime

And inspire us to noble deeds, during all of our life

German women, German loyalty, German wine, and German song

German women, German loyalty, German wine, and German song


Unity and justice and freedom, for the German fatherland

Let us all strive for this purpose, brotherly with heart and hand

Unity and justice and freedom, are the pledge of happiness

Bloom in the glow of the happiness, bloom, German fatherland

Bloom in the glow of the happiness, bloom, German fatherland
