After losing yesterday to Japan 1 – 0 in Tokyo at the IBSA Blind Football World Championships, Blindenfußball.net is reporting the German team took a break from the competition to go shoe shopping. They went to a soccer store, looked and some bought soccer shoes designed for playing on the artificial turf used in blind football.
The Japanese got an early goal, scoring ten minutes in and the Germans were never able to answer back. They put heavy pressure on the Japanese side, managing to keep the ball their half for much of the second half but were unable to get the ball in the goal despite some promising opportunities.
Germany’s loss sets them up for a game Monday against Colombia in the seventh – eight place placement match.
