21st May, 2012, Chicago: David Cameron, the British Prime Minister, relished Chelsea’s Champions League victory against Bundesliga club Bayern Munich on Saturday. He watched the deciding penalty shootout with Angela Merkel, the German Chancellor, at the NATO Summit in the United States.
After the match, Cameron told journalists that it is not often one get the opportunity to watch a penalty shootout between an English side and a German side and watch the English team win. There are many great privileges in this job but to be able to do that with the German chancellor was a great moment – but they did hug and make up afterwards.
The British Prime Minister was photographed with his arms aloft in joy while watching the final game with other top world leaders during the break in the G8 Summit in the United States. In the picture, Cameron was standing next to the United States President Barack Obama. Well, it was probably a sweet revenge for the British Prime Minister who watched England thrashed in the hands of Germany at the World Cup 2010 at the G20 Summit in Toronto.
Cameron added, “You’ve got the American president not fully understanding the rules of football, or soccer as he would call it, a very despondent German chancellor and, of course, another happy man in the room, which was the Russian prime minister.”
