View From the Top

Our seats for the Togo-Korea game were in the very top row of the stadium, but still gave us a pretty good view of the action. We also had a nice panoramic of the Frankfurt skyline directly behind us.

Of the three games we saw in person, this was the most entertaining. Togo struck first, but Korea, spurred on by their incredibly vocal fan base, answered with two goals for a 2-1 win.

Togo was a bit of a mess during the World Cup. Their coach resigned days before the start and then was talked into coming back. Their players almost boycotted a game over a pay dispute. The head of the federation accused the coach of being a drunk. And they lost three games by a combined score of 6-1. Other than that, it looked like they were having a helluva time.
