England vs Germany
On the 10th of November 2017, ten lucky children went with some lucky teachers to Wembley to watch England play Germany. We left school at 6.00pm and travelled by minibus to the stadium.
England’s Gareth Southgate and Germany’s Joachim Low both went into the match under a lot of pressure. England had not been beaten in six consecutive matches.
At Wembley all of us (Ben C, Oliver, Ben M, Olivia, Charlie, Andrew, Andreas, Natasha,
Samuel, Tomas, Mrs Rich, Mr Timbrell, Mr Cummins, Mrs Batsford, Miss Patsalis and the bus driver) bought something.
The stadium looked fantastic at night with the lighting on the Wembley arch. There was some pre-match entertainment, then we had a minute’s silence for Armistice Day.
Within the first 15 minutes Germany’s Sane hit the bar, then Jones was injured.
Throughout the whole game Pickford and ter Stegan were making some fantastic saves. Hummels and Dier were the captains . In this match, the first live goal line technology was used. Despite a 0-0 result there was a fabulous atmosphere. In the second half, the play slowed down a bit and the crowd started throwing paper aeroplanes — everyone cheered if one landed on the pitch!
We really enjoyed our trip to Wembley and hope The Three Lions do well in their match tonight against Brazil.
