The Local’s World Cup blog offers an outsider’s perspective on German football as Die Mannschaft goes for glory in South Africa. Don’t miss our daily roundup!

The planet’s biggest sporting spectacle might have only started, but our bloggers have been busy rooting out all the Teutonic soccer news fit to print.

On Friday, we looked at a Bavarian ban on vuvuzela fan trumpets, the financial rewards awaiting the German team if they are successful and the Kaiser’s demand the players sing the national anthem before matches.
