Moving soccer experiences

Hautnah konnten wir die Stars, wie hier Kylian Mbappé (rechts) beim Aufwärmen, beobachten.

I’ve now seen three games of the preliminary round in Dortmund. Yesterday we were in bright sunshine and temperatures of around 30 degrees at the game between France and Poland, which ended in a 1-1 draw. The game wasn’t particularly great. But it was great that we were able to see the stars up close from our seats. I had wheelchair tickets. They cost 30 euros per game including the accompanying person. There was also great service from the many volunteers, who were always very friendly and helpful. It was also impressive how the stadium slowly filled up and then the national anthem, such as the French Marseillaise, was played and sung along.
