Goal - Football's back

Last weekend the first round of the German national football league took place after the summer break. And what a wonderful start for Eintracht Frankfurt - winning in Bremen with Bremen 2 : Frankfurt 3. Congratulations Eintracht.

I enjoyed watching the top-game of the day live here in Hoffenheim: Hoffenheim against Bayern M√ľnchen. I went there with my son who recently decided to support Bayern (we agreed that he can support Bayern or any other team he likes but shall never shout against Frankfurt ;-) )

Saturday's match of Hoffenheim against Bayern was a good match with Hoffenheim being clearly better in the first half. Towards the end, though, Bayern dominated and Hoffenheim seemed to be running out of power. The match ended 1:1. However, Hoffenheim were a bit unlucky since a clear goal was not given. The referee had not seen that the ball was behind the line and the Bayern goalkeepter managed to catapult it out of the goal again. Too bad... but perhaps time for some digital help to measure when a ball has really surpassed the magic line.
