Following in the footsteps of rap royalty Jay Z, and the King of the North from ‘Game of Thrones’, the German football team took the tube yesterday as they prepared for their match against England at Wembley on Tuesday.
The players, including Arsenal’s Per Mertesacker, looked like they were typically disciplined as they assumed a well-drilled formation across the Bakerloo line carriage on their way to Wembley Park. Luckily for the team manager Joachim Low, he avoided dropping any Roy Hodgson-esque clangers in front of surprised commuters. Let’s hope their luck runs out by the time the team take to the field on Tuesday night. Mark O’Donnell
