Hi,

what are the FIFA 2002 WC TV ads in your country ?

In Germany, you see a fat, drunk, ugly English fan celebrating the victory of the English Team in front of a screen (you see game graphics of the English Players with the cup) ...then a speaker says :"You have to prevent this! EA Sports Fifa World Cup 2002"

Is there a similar ad in your country? If yes, what nationality has the fan ?  Big grin

I really like the ad Big grin

In Denmark the fan is German! He looks like he has come straight from the Oktoberfest, and he is waving a small German flag....

The speaker says something like: "Germany has won the final and the Danish players are in tears - only you can prevent this - play FIFA 2002!"

Superb, Racko! In England it's a German fan, complete with lederhosen and smug grin, commentary of England players falling to their knees at the final whistle and the strapline - "Only you can prevent this!" Big grin

They run another one with France winning, although since England and France can't play each other in the final (semi-final is the latest) it loses a bit.

Nice to know that EA Sports are keeping the national prejudices alive and well. Trouble is of course, they could just run that 5-1 over and over again and that would hurt you more!  Big thumbs up

In the USA, there are almost no ads. The Spanish chanels advertize that they are broadcasting them, but nothing funny like in Europe.  Sad

Not at all, nobody cares about that one - just like the defeat at the Euro 00, it had zero impact, in hindsight. You can win as many quasi-friendlies as you want to, as long as we clinch the important ones.  Laugh out loud Big grin

You wouldn't have said that if you hadn't won the play-off, now, would you? Big grin

And being in denial doesn't help in the long run either!  Big grin

You´re certainly right on that one. But we DID win the play-off, you´ll have to learn to live with it. (And don´t forget, we had the same number of points in the group as England.)

>>>And being in denial doesn't help in the long run either!

Denial? Who´s in denial? De Nile is a river in Africa, as far as I´m concerned  Wink/being sarcastic

Since you are clearly having problems coming to terms with your heaviest defeat in about seventy years, Daniel, I volunteer to help you by mentioning it at every opportunity. Don't tell me it doesn't worry you, we all saw the German newspaper headlines the following day! Big grin

Now, if you can just tell us how you managed to get an easier World Cup group.....

Ah, Racko, that old chestnut. If we accept that the third goal in '66 should have been disallowed, there is still the matter of the fourth. And anyway, German people often talk as though you would have won that final, when of course you wouldn't. England were the better side. So there.

By the way, no-one "respects" the German team. They grudgingly admire how the Germans somehow manage to win the thing despite being so boring all the time, but that's a different matter. Why do you think everyone celebrates when you get knocked out? It ain't just us, you know! Big grin

Yes, and do you know WHY they celebrate ? Because they are afraid of getting knocked out by US themselves Big grin Oh, and who again invented the "Kick and rush?"  Laugh out loud We just knew how to play kick-and-rush and be succesful while England played kick-and-rush and wasn't succesful  Big grin

And about "being the better team" - you can't buy anything for "being the better team". Bayer Leverkusen was maybe the best team in europe this year, but they didn't win the Bundesliga, nor the German Cup, nor the Champions League ... it was still enough for the English teams though  Laugh out loud

Hang on, you can't turn that around like that. England WON in '66, not Germany. So, regardless of the third goal, the better team won. What I'm saying is that many Germans claim that without that goal they would have won, and that just isn't true. Now, in the 1970 quarter final England were by far the superior side for the first hour. Then Bobby Charlton was substituted, Beckenbaur was freed in midfield and Germany tore England apart.

In 1990, England played out of their skins against Germany and had many chances to win the game, but it was so tight I don't think we could honestly say that England were unlucky, except of course in the manner of defeat.

1996 was an example of the best team not winning as you say, because England were much the better side put just couldn't put the ball away.

The one thing about England-Germany matches is that we know SOMETHING is going to happen. They are never boring! But the reason the 5-1 was so special to us is because you made our lives a misery for 30 years, and this was payback in the most special way possible. I can't conceive of how appalling it must be to be absolutely hammered by the old enemy.

As for Leverkusen, I thoroughly enjoyed watching them this year. I thought they were marvellous and I would have been delighted if they could have won the European Cup.
