Germany beats US boys in friendship
World's number two USA lost their first official game after the surprising silver medal at the 2008 Olympic Games in Bejing, China. The tenth-ranked Germans beat head coach Terry Schroeder´s team 10-6 (2-2, 1-1, 4-2, 3-1) in a interesting friendly match of both men´s senior national teams at Magdeburg, Germany. Both teams had had common practice sessions and test matches in Berlin and Magdeburg since Sunday afternoon; tonight an official game was contested in front of more than 1,000 spectators.

Both coaches were still missing some key players of their 2008 Olympic squads although only three athletes of the German Bejing team had retired officially. The US boys looked stronger in the practice session, but the score was levelled in the first half, including a 3-3 tie a halftime. After the changing of sides, Germany got control of the game to gain a 7-4 lead in the third period. “The victory was too high, about by two goals”, German head coach Hagen Stamm said after the game, “but it was a deserved victory.”

Both teams are preparing for the 2009 FINA World Championships in Rome, Italy. Head coach Terry Schroeder´s players will now travel to a highly competitive four-nation-tournament to be contested in Eger, Hungary. Team Germany which is coached by Hagen Stamm for another Olympic circle gained their first victory after the Beijing Games and is now going to Moscow, Russia next Tuesday to play Europe´s number ten Russia on game day 4 of the Men´s FINA World League.
