Germany vs. Argentina: because the fans were angry because of an idol-choreography
Germany and Argentina have always been the best. On Wednesday evening, the two teams met in Dortmund (final score 2: 2) for the 23rd time in an international match.
- Since the 2014 World Cup final of the two nations is still anchored in the minds of most Germans, the DFB has created a special choreography at the Südtribüne in Dortmund.
- The legendary goal of Mario Götze, who scored in the 117th minute in the World Cup final in Rio de Janeiro, was on the field of Dortmund fans to see.
Here's how it was Wednesday night in Dortmund:

In addition to Götze, the much-cited "fourth star" for the fourth world champion title was on display in the stands. Probably the biggest goal of the current BVB Götze player in Dortmund on the South Stand in the match against final opponents of 2014 – which fits, apparently thought to the DFB.
Already before the game, the choreography plans were known: it was followed by heavy criticism.
Götze-Choreo does not come well – due to a star
So there were accusations that the choreographer was not chosen very happy: "Am I the only one who sees a gigantic yellow star critique in the Nazi stronghold Dortmund?" He wrote a user on Twitter that he was in agreement with some others.
Another user explained: "We leave the church in the village – also known as Gene Snowflake. It is clearly the star of the title, which is unmistakably expressed in the general framework of the choreographer. Whether you need it or not is an open question. The star of David, however, looks completely different. "

Not the first cry of choreography
Moreover, since the choreographer was organized by the "national team of the Fan Club fed by Coca-Cola", in the social networks of some fans there was already a lot of ridicule. On the one hand, because otherwise the BVB fans on the venerable South Stand honorary choreographies that play around the world. On the other hand, because the one or the other fan club choreography went wrong last.
Already in early September, a coreo-emergency solution had made headlines before qualifying against the Netherlands, The choreographer's real motto was: "full throttle" – which met with great criticism. For many, he thought that the term "full throttle" in the context of a duel against the Netherlands for inappropriate and insensitive historical reasons. The annihilation of the Jews by the Nazis in the Third Reich also cost the lives of three quarters of the Dutch Jews. The DFB fan club responded shortly before the kick-off – and improvised with a stopgap. So apparently the last three letters "gas" to "ey!" changed – from "full throttle" it was so "Volley!". Fans reacted with ridicule.
The DFB seems that people just can't get it right and now it crawls into the next "Choreo Gate". There is another argument between the ridiculous and the criticisms of racism for a DFB choreographer. The fact that Mario Götze, top scorer of 2014, although as current BVB player in Dortmund, but is no longer in the national team, is still in the lead.
But not only Götze was missing in the first game: Joachim Loew is currently facing huge injury problems and leaders like Kroos, Gundogan or Sané are not there. The Argentines seemed similar: The best stars Sergio Agüero, Angel Di Maria and the suspended Lionel Messi have not raced in Dortmund, With players like Nicolas Otamendi of Manchester City and Paulo Dybala of Juventus, the Albiceleste still had a high level in the team.
