News from Down Under - Australia qualifies for soccer world championship

Breaking news: The Australian soccer team has qualified for the world championship in Germany next year. This is the first qualification since 1974 (in Germany as well!).
They have defeated the favourite team of Uruguay 4:2 in penalty shootout. Probably the Uruguay team will be afraid to go home again.
The Australian team will be a light tint for the championship. Another yellow and green besides Brazil.
Congratulations and welcome to Germany next year! Why not a game Australia vs. Germany? This would be a little revenge for the game we had this year during the Confederation Cup. Germany has won 4:3.

And hello to Tania of Australia, who is in Vietnam at the moment. And to Rachel in Australia as well. They are both friends of Tina and have teached for one year in America with her. We drink to you (and we know that you can drink!).

I love coffee, and I will most definitely go to this place in Nuremberg if I ever get there. Talking about the World Cup, which cities will give home to matches? How about tickets? Are they already selling them?

This cities will give home to the matches: Berlin, Dortmund, Frankfurt, Gelsenkirchen, Hamburg, Hannover, Kaiserlautern, Köln, Leipzig, München, Nürnberg and Stuttgart. Tickets you'll find here, the availability is difficult:

Sara Beth, I live in the Southern part in Bavaria. Nuremberg is the second largest city in Bavaria with about 500.000 inhabitants.

They say that you never get past the german soccer team in a shootout. Well, they will have to prove that again in the coming world cup. I'm expecting them to again be in finals.
