World Cup 2010 - go Germany!

OK so Wales did not make it through to the World cup this year - ahh sad.
But never mind; I'm backing Germany this year

Why?

Well, my favorite player is there Michael Ballack.

He is a Chelsea boy you know. Ok he was born in Germany but he plays for Chelsea football club all year but now he is to be the Captain of Germany.
Why do I like him so?

He is more like a rugby player than a football player. You won't see him on the floor pretending his leg hurts like most players. In fact, last year they had to drag him off the pitch as his nose was bleeding and he was still playing! Tough guy.


In fact, I've even made my own puppet version of him to play along (in his German team colours of course) He can kick, score and do a victory slide - yeay.
Here is a rear view. (albeit fuzzy) you cannot see this (because his shorts are black) but they wrap around the glove too. He is knitted as part of the glove not just attatched to it. I made him as a right-handed glove for me. I can make left-handed gloves too and any team that you can think of (but no badges; my embroidery skills are not up to that lol)

Now I just need to make another for him to play against - maybe Brazil - that'd be fun

  1. Interesting choice! Northern Irelnad didn't make it either but I haven't chosen 'my' team yet! Looking forward to it! Enjoy!

  2. Oh my gosh, that little player is so funny!

    But are you still on now that Ballack is injured?

    I'll do the same as every year. Stay away from soccer, that is.

  3. Well I may be leaning a bit Brazil without him. But will still cheer them on.
