Steffen's World Cup Diary: Dream is on!

Posted on 18 June 2002  - 12:00

Tottenham Hotspur (Spurs) Football Club is located in North London. The club is also known as Spurs. Tottenham's home ground is White Hart Lane. The club motto is Audere est Facere (To dare is to do).

I've thoroughly enjoyed the World Cup as I continue my fitness work here in Germany and I have to say - the dream final looks on!

I have been happy with how Germany have played, okay, we have had a little luck here and there, especially against Ireland, but I now believe we will beat USA in the quarter-finals.

We would play South Korea or Spain in the semi-finals and once you are there, anything is possible.

Germany would have certainly expected to have played harder teams along the way but if you said before the tournament you would have to play Saudi Arabia, Ireland, Cameroon, Paraguay and USA to reach the semi-finals you would take it!

For me, whoever wins between England and Brazil will reach the final.

It is an unbelievable quarter-final - it could be the final - but that is what you have to overcome in tournament football.

Both England and Brazil have already beaten quite difficult opponents in Belgium and Denmark and funnily enough, whoever wins will have an easier semi-final!

As I have said before, I play in England and I would love to see England progress all the way to the final. Hopefully, that will be the dream final against Germany. Imagine that!
