tv Kick off - More than Football Deutsche Welle November 10, 2017 8:30am-9:01am CET
cop twenty three this weekend next on the doubling news. every journey begins with the first step and every language of the first word i would think of nico he's in germany to learn german. business just why not run with him. it's simple online on your own mile and train. the stuff. d.w. zealand in course goes week journey made easy.
foreign is that which is unknown. like food for example is a lab chick of course is not so good when to see the eye teeth and everything but more about icelandic myths with star striker alfred finn bogus and. anything you don't know you can get to know even votes a book. when i live in those books those fancy new ways were strange to me victor as eamon the only nigerian player in the bundesliga. a company food eat dog from couldn't shine in china. he came nine thousand kilometers just to play here. come out like your house she was you know close to home and your home she see you a little wistfully don't want to look for the whole love for you or you know go to
not only a star striker for f.c. outward but also team iceland. iceland has turned a football fairy tale into reality when they qualified for the world cup so i'm here to talk to alfred to talk iceland find out does he believe in elves and also what's up with all the penises. i mean. just national team isn't really a big family. it's one big family because in the national team i think i have six or seven of my. players that i would call very good friends or even my best friends you can see it also how we play we fight for one and we just have this momentum going that when we meet everybody knows that if we're planning against brazil. are
we going into the game to win and this is the mentality we have for us icelanders some would call stupid that we think we can win against everybody but it's part of the d.n.a. and. you know i saw the parade you guys return to iceland did you just turn into a rock star overnight. i think we got insight into the life of what it is to be like. heroes or big stars in iceland that day i think their country just exploded i've never seen anything like it so it was a very special day it was something that you won't witness every day and i think yeah and also just the way the celebration the thunder clap. you know this in itself also went viral everybody loved that i was having success and this on top of it i think this was. even it was not planned it was a marketing genius because. we were known by this clap and this was our connection
with the fans and everybody loved to see how the players were close to the fans. i did read somewhere that icelanders say they're the best in the world everything. playing with the best and everything if you compare to how many people live their rights and that's how we can use it to advantage so when we're not playing we lost . some big nations ok then we can always pay for the thing that we are only three hundred thirty thousand or something like that right we have that ace in our in our sleeves but it's better we don't have to use them we can compete against the top teams. however you come to like the food in germany potion a big fan of the german cuisine i don't care about the rules. and leave the kids and all of that and there's a lot of good things in germany but when i want to level food now i don't know if i'm honest ok now let's talk about some interesting looking cuisine here icelandic
specialty and all that alfred explain what we're looking at. this would scare me personally i don't personally eat that but this is a lamb cheek of course is not so good when you see the eye and teeth and everything that doesn't happen is a tradition in especially in february every year you have this festival and that old traditional icelandic food other traditions that exist in iceland the house it looks a little bit too small for her to live in so right now these houses exist what is this these the so-called elf houses alf's have a big tradition and history in iceland that. people that have. taken away and hills and stuff like this that they have received about luck in the coming years and off doing that and there's a tradition for people to believe in elves and this is probably someone who. takes
good care of. they can live in peace then they want to be left in peace ok all right so. believing in elves would you say that the majority of icelandic children believe in else stories told to. children and i think it depends on when you grow up what to. believe how much you believe in it but personally. no calling me no good because if you know that question to get bad luck you don't want to hear bad luck ok so there's no comment on whether or not out for you believed in elves. we give you the secret. a museum full of the penises. so please tell me you've you've been to this museum yappin there and this is the. museum and. they have different kind of penises from all different kinds of animals and there is even one from
a human being there really so there's a man who. this. is missy and. it is quiet and tourist attraction so i recommend everybody to go there so by any chance were there any. penises in the museum no. other. i cannot remember exactly but they would be in the smaller section i think. before leaving. for the future. after last season when i was out along with time with injuries my first play a full season with thirty plus games and have success with hopefully we can have a successful season where we are where we are not shaking until the last day about
relegation. and to follow that of course since the world cup you cannot speak about anything unless you mention the world cup because i think for many players as an icelandic player you if maybe one chance to play in the world cup and our first chance and i want to come in in the best possible shape of the tournament and be a big part of the team if you. can be sure to catch mice in russia. off to evolve to check in with a world champion. on the seventeen world champion boxer world champion nonetheless. seaman has been involved since january this year. lagos in nigeria is where he learned to play and he played
well at the twenty fifteen under seventeen. now he's the youngest african in the bundesliga. my name is victor i was born in in one thousand nine hundred eight what should i say. only victor i was born in in one thousand nine hundred eight i am a striker i play for our favorite book i'm doing a player from nigeria to be in the bonus league. for. yes. i would say i would say yes. it's my job this is what i thought i wanted to do. in the part of. a feat i think. i don't have i don't think i have to be. any more just after the faces and yeah my
family are far from me and. this is in germany is walking and they have not in to be afraid of and i'm happy the. good. that was the first two months when i came to when i started living in it was. strange to me. sometimes the african food. the people in the club. wonderful to me and i have the players good and i have my my big. brother. has been so nice on the first day. i came to has been. i think
i like just this is like i mean africa. is just india. kind of different. victor feels it and now to thomas he's going out into the world in search of this man the great cristiana renaud that. i'm still bumbling through the streets of madrid on the hunt for christiane or nigel. obviously this isn't going to get me very far i'm not going to find him
shopping in age and i am not even in this rough ski shop still be at work to tell me that we're not oh my pop up anywhere. in two thousand and fifteen we're not a disguised himself and surprised the street right here on this very spot. for the month. of. august. right i understand the stars could be hiding anywhere well maybe i get lucky. is there karim benzema behind those shades. is tony cause makeup artist this good. has marcello got his arm for under control is gareth bale out

at least if the edwards are to be believed. races. i'm so my nose imagine for a moment and this one cone and this piece of bark is that little troll god over there christiane are not us house and christian or not or would be roughly. so near and yet so far. those trees over there are probably right in her nightdress garden back in july when alice twins were born i'm also a recent father reese by the way are my kids and i have so much in common how do you come across. the sleepless nights and know which diaper stood by family

a career which he's been accepted into the couldn't shank not been shmita the club's football academy in china. the country where progress and tradition co-exist in such close quarters. where the masses are more fast about basketball or badminton. and where football has only just started to make inroads into popular culture here in shanghai. chinese talents between eight and thirteen years old learn according to the philosophy of the club from gals and. chinese coaches german methods. for. a big money project that will establish the club in the chinese market academy boss

first of all there's a tree lined up the food he and his friends. shelter up playing at home in the felton's arena. the chinese boys know the bundesliga from the t.v. . but the atmosphere is something the likes of which they've never experienced. spirits are high after a home victory including among the guests from couldn't shine. then it's down to business a friendly match against local boys team s.s. . their first experience of playing against the german side goes well. the chinese boys take their opponents apart. goals galore for the visitors from
hotwire around the world. as a reward. young for ye is already more than familiar with european food since he started training with pastor is a regular on the menu back home. up to six players share an apartment for most it's the first time travelling alone. finds time for his homework even after five hours of football he doesn't want to lose touch while he's here in germany. you can have my house you see the. new house ceilings over solutions what. do you believe you know. would leave me here. is. performance can be measured by the german football associations official test. and
