It’s not about the war, says man supporting any team against Germany

A MAN watching the World Cup says he has no grudge against Germany despite passionately supporting any side playing against them.

Roy Hobbs was ecstatic to see Mexico beat Germany and plans to support any team they come up against, but insists he has no anti-German feelings.

Retired engineer Hobbs said: “I don’t hate the Germans, I’ve just always been a big fan of the national football teams of countries like South Korea, Costa Rica and Senegal.

“When Mexico scored I may have made the odd comment like ‘Take that, you kraut bastards!’, but that was just appreciation for the Mexican goalscorer, Sanchez El Gringo or whatever he’s called.

“I did also shout ‘THEY DON’T LIKE IT UP ‘EM!’ and put on the Dambusters theme, but that was just a coincidence.”

However acquaintances suspect Hobbs may have a strange, outdated dislike of Germany due to wanting to see their modern team of 2018 beaten by Poland to “get their own back”.

Friend Mary Fisher said: “Roy saying England versus Germany will be ‘like D-Day all over again’ does not sound to me like a man who has come to terms with the past.”
