It's more or less like I expected, some people trying to use the success at a sport event to promote nationalistic ideas. Nothing new, sadly, but still noteworthy. The article (which I didn't find an English version of) at least mentions that many Germans appear to have a difficult time finding a sensible way to deal with their national identity. For example, there is also a strong left-wing movement that goes so far as to criticize any use of national symbols (i.e., fan flags/banners, stickers, tiny flags drawn with make-up) as nationalistic, which is a bit over the top in my view.
The author also states that those right-wing elements shouldn't be seen as representing the majority of German soccer fans (who would have thought?) and that aggressively rejecting even moderate support of national identity bears the risk of suggesting that the more extreme attitudes are representative of an overall political attitude than they really are.

I just want to say that I caught the latter 60 minutes of the ENGvCAN match and found myself actively enjoying watching football, mostly because there wasn't any bloody diving.
I then tuned in to watch the second half of the semis. This is what happens when I pay attention to football, disappointment. Pah! Of course the own goal will be the part remembered, not the fact it was a fairly necessary defensive move that just happened to go as wrong as it can.

That was honestly the most English I have ever seen. Absolutely brutal. That poor woman, I hope she can ever recover from this.Immersive Sims on Steam WIP

I watched the last 2 minutes. Brutal is right. I think I jinxed it. Sorry everyone.
