Deutschland gegen Türkei in Bildern und Text

Heute steigt das Halbfinale gegen die Türkei. Um die Gemüter schon einmal ein bisschen einzustimmen hier ein paar Bilder:


Außerdem warnt die amerikanische Botschaft in Berlin ihre Landsleute in Deutschland vor dem Aufeinandertreffen der beiden Völker.

Because of the high fan interest in this prestigious semi-final elimination game between Germany and Turkey, there exists the possibility that disturbances, including violent disturbances may occur before, during or after the match, which begins at 20:45. At a minimum, post-game celebrations will likely result in traffic congestion in larger cities. Crowds celebrating previous German and/or Turkish victories have blocked streets and rocked vehicles attempting to pass through them.

We remind American citizens in Germany that even mass gatherings and demonstrations intended to be peaceful can turn confrontational and possibly escalate into violence. American citizens are therefore urged to avoid the areas of demonstrations if possible, and to exercise caution if within the vicinity of any demonstrations.
