Palace of Westminster with Big Ben, Tower of London, Westminster Abbey and Buckingham Palace to name just a few. London is home to numerous landmarks with the London Tube being one of them but the Underground is hardly considered as the greatest landmark in town.
It seems like the German national team think that way, or why would they travel with the Tube and sell as it would be a commercial? To get to yesterday’s training at Wembley Stadium German national coach Jogi Low thought he won’t like to stuck in a traffic jam so he took the Tube with his team.
German officials insisted that it wasn’t a PR-campaign in celebration of the 150 years existence of the London Underground or of the Football Association. Nevertheless it was an eye catcher to see the whole German team in one train. For fans, who might have accidentally run into the team on their way home from work, it must have been a amazing surprise.
Arsenal’s Per Mertesacker tried the tube before – yesterday with his colleague Rene Adler of Hamburger SV. A video revealed that the Arsenal FC defender was not that familiar with the public metro system.
