    DEAR EDITOR,

    Germany are continental world Champions

    Chile football team
    was deservedly disgraced and defeated. How can a team of eleven dwarfs,
    like Chile, expect to score by playing high balls into Germany’s 18-yard box?
    How can pygmies out-jump a German team with the height of 5 feet 10 inches
    in the defensive line? Chile national football team was senseless and should
    be defeated, as happened. Let the world rise and take a bow for the victorious
    German team who let Chile do all the passing and crossing, knowing that all
    pygmies have limits, afterall, as indeed Chileans do.
