Népszabadság - Hungary | Thursday, July 17, 2014

Hungary would make fun of multi-culti team

Germany is celebrating the World Cup victory of its multicultural team without prejudice, the left-liberal daily Népszabadság observes with admiration, adding that it can't imagine a multicultural Hungarian football team enjoying such popularity: "A German counterpart of Kurucinfó [a far-right Hungarian news portal] would neither conjure up visions of the final stage of Europe's demise nor question the joy over the World Cup victory ... Germany does not question the fact that the Ghanaian Jérome Boateng, the Turk Mesut Özil, the Albanian Shkodran Mustafi and Arab Sami Khedira donned the German strip and worked together with the Polish-born players Lukas Podolski and Miroslav Klose to fight for Germany's glory. ... No, in Germany they're just celebrating the victory light-heartedly and joyfully."
