Fussball translated as football in English, is the most popular sport in Germany. I could still remember my first years of living in Germany. At that time one of the the most famous football player was Michael Ballack who was also the former captain of the Foot ball National Team of Germany. I could still remember last 2010 when FC Bayern München became the national champion of the first Bundesliga and also the over-all champion of the DFB (Deutscher Fußball-Bund or the German Football Association) Pokal. I even witnessed it over the Television as they received their sports trophies. I learn to understand a bit about this game because I watch it sometimes in German Television.
There are millions of football fanatics in Germany. The German Football Association is said to have 6.6 million members organized in over 26,000 football clubs. I admired German people who support their children in playing football at their younger years. In fact, you can see football fields in every villages, towns and most of all bigger ones in any German city. I can say, Germans are very sport-minded people.
