Cameron, Merkel may watch football clash together

David Cameron and his German counterpart Angela Merkel may put aside historic rivalries and watch the crunch World Cup football match between England and Germany together, they said Friday.

Cameron and the German Chancellor want to talk about tuning in to Sunday’s last 16 clash — and Cameron has joked he will “try not to wrestle her to the ground during penalties.”

The last time England and Germany met in the World Cup was the 1990 semi-final when England were beaten on penalties and which has become one of the most famous games in English footballing folklore.

“There is an idea we might try and watch it together,” Cameron told ITV News in Huntsville, Canada, where he was attending a Group of Eight leaders’ summit.

“I will try not to wrestle her to the ground during penalties, but we will have to see.”

Merkel told reporters: “I’m going to watch the game on Sunday. I’m going to talk to Cameron — who, when, where and how.”

She and Cameron will be attending the G20 summit in Toronto Sunday when the vital match will be played in South Africa.

There is huge interest in the World Cup at the summit among football-playing nations, with delegations following it keenly and some televisions at the Deerhurst Resort, where it is being held, tuned in to live action.
