At a soccer game
Lena (L): Olé, olé, olé, olé...
Monica (M): The game's finally going to start in five minutes. You just can't be stopped, can you? And your favourite team isn't even playing today.
L: That doesn't matter to me today. 'The ball is round, and the game lasts ninety minutes.'
M: And now you are getting philosophical, too...
German fan (Gf): What do you mean philosophical? The quote is from Sepp Herberger, the famous German soccer coach.
L: See, Monica. I am actually a real fan. Didn't Herberger also say: 'The next match is always the hardest'?
Gf: That's right. But my favourite quote is 'The round thing goes in the square thing' - that's all you need to know about soccer!
M: Hey, that's all very nice, but the match's starting. I think you two should concentrate on the game.
L: Oh man, the guys in red are playing great offence. Do you think the goalie has a chance? Ohhh...
Gf: Of course, the goalie's great. He's like a wall in front of the net. But what's number 16 doing? That's a hand ball!
L: Doesn't look like it - the referee didn't call a penalty.
M: That was close. The defence is really good. But now there's a corner kick.
L: Oh no, and number 7 was fouled. He's got to get a yellow card for that!
M: No, the referee only gave them a free kick!
Gf: Aaah, that was no foul - he fell on purpose.
M: What?! Whose side are you on anyway?
Gf: The better team's side - what else?
L: Monica, Monica, they're about to score!
M: Wow! Oh, what a pass! That was perfect!
L: And a header, and - goal! Goal! Goal!
Gf: 2:0 - I can't believe it! Nobody's that lucky!
M: Hey, what's wrong? I thought you were rooting for the better team!
Gf: Yeah, that's the problem!
M: Oh, don't be sad. Both teams played great today - and fair.
L: You know the saying, 'After the game is before the game'. Your team will win next time.
M: But today - it's our team!
L&M: Olé, olé, olé, olé! We are the champions, olé...
