Champions League

Yesterday's Champions League final brought a fitting result. Barcelona's 2-1 triumph was deserved. Arsenal fought courageously, playing a man down from early in the game. It's too bad the referee sent Jens Lehmen off with a red card. He should have shown the yellow card and allowed the goal that Barcelona scored on the play.

Samuel Eto is such a dangerous striker. His goal was well taken off a deft pass from Henrik Larrson, and what a spark he added to the Barcelona side. It's a shame that Eto will not be able to display his skill on the World Cup stage. Cameroon did not make the final round.

What a masterful goal off this set piece. Henry serving the ball, and Sol Campbell soaring to head it into the back of the net.

I've got World Cup fever. June 12 cannot come soon enough. United States vs. Czech Republic.
Ich liebe die fusball. Deuscthland ist wunderbar. Ja, gut.
