For me, ever since I was a little kid, soccer has always been my life. I’ve played it since I was only 6 years old and this relatively simple game never gets tiring. I do love to follow all soccer, but especially my favorite team FC Bayern München either in the Bundesliga or the UEFA Champions League.
I have always loved them because of one simple fact. Every great German player has played for this historic team. Nothing is better than watching the German National team play in either the World Cup or the Euro. A strange sense of patriotism flows through me as I watch them play. Especially their captain and my hero/role model Michael Ballack. I have watched him so many times and when I play, I try to be that leader on the field and dictate the play with power and precision. Here is my favorite Michael Ballack goal at Euro 2008 against Austria.
