The upcoming Euro Cup match between the national teams of Germany and Greece has taken on unprecedented dimensions, turning into more than a mere matter of sports.
As announced by the deputy spokesperson of Berlin, Georg Streiter, Angela Merkel will attend the quarter-final match between the two countries taking place in Gdansk, Poland, after she received a formal invitation by the Polish PM Donald Tusk.
For Greeks tha game is a matter of honor. As Greek Reporter has previously written:
Imagine being a Palestinian playing against Israel, a Tibetan playing against China or a Kurd playing against Turkey. Now, all three peoples I mentioned are about to lose their identity since their countries are not even politically recognized, so we’re nowhere near as bad as they are, but you get the gist of it. On one side of the field, you have Bill Gates and on the other one you have a homeless person. It’s not just Goliath vs David, it’s not just the strongest against the weakest, it’s also the master against the slave. It’s Germany against Greece. [...] On Thursday in Poland, where 70 years ago the Nazis were performing their atrocities against Jews (including Greek-Jews) and rebels, the German soccer team will try and crush Greece in a sign of dominance. Thank God, we have a group of 22 players that will not negotiate based on Germany’s whim. They will do anything possible to win the battle, in remembrance of Germany’s atrocities back then, but even more now, where in a more discreet and appealing, yet still cunning and blood-sucking manner, Germany is trying to take over Europe implementing austerity plans.
