Europe is all abuzz about the Euro Cup Championship that is currently being played, the fans have been boisterous (and hot) and finding a myriad of ways to have fun. Case in point, the heated match yesterday between two Austrian and German teams in preparation for the national teams’ real game to be played today. The game yesterday featured a 10-5 win for the Austrian team, but the usual exchange of uniforms after the game was simply not possible. That’s because this was a match between the two nations’ women’s topless soccer teams.
With a “sizable” media presence and a mostly male audience, the ladies battled it out in their full glory. And obviously, “the match was organized by a chat room website.”
Wearing only thongs and body paint colored to their country’s flag, the women played a spirited, if not well-skilled game on the beach.
“I was supposed to hold the balls but I really have no idea how to do that,” said German keeper Jana Bach, who, after making this statement was swarmed by 12,000 men with offers to help her learn proper ball holding technique.
“They might have to work on their technique a bit but it was definitely a rather pleasant game to watch and a very nice version of the ‘beautiful game’,” commented spectator Rolf Hansen.
