German players erupting during women national team competition
Nantes 2012 as most people call it has been the most spectacular tournament I have ever witnessed! Never before have I seen so many captivating and intense matches in one tournament before. There has been the final of the women national team competition between Germany and France which went down to a final nail-biting game. In the men doubles final Rob Atha and Joe Hamilton nearly accomplished the comeback against Collignon and van de Cauter. And of course there has been the crazy match between France and Great Britain in the men national competition, in which the Brits were taking the the French by surprise by exclusively shooting a tic-tac system on their scoring rods. And as the Brits were starting to believe their plan would succeed, the most spectacular match I've ever watched unfolded in front of me. With hundreds of French fans shouting "Allez les bleus!" while drumming their thunder-sticks, Jim Stevens commentary in my ear over the headphones and a match that went in a long exciting overtime, I felt like it couldn't get any better. Who ever watched this match, be it an experienced pro, a rookie playing an occasional game in a bar or someone completely new to the game was excited by the emotions and intensity with which foosball is played. In Nantes, France, foosball is as far away from a bar-game as it can get. It is an intense, exciting sport that is loved by players all over the world. And here, they all get together...
