Chancellor Angela Merkel is German football team’s ‘lucky charm’ at Euros!

London: Germany is hoping that their “lucky charm”, Chancellor Angela Merkel, will inspire them to victory tomorrow against Greece in the quarter-finals of the Euro 2012.

Merkel, who will travel to see Germany`s European Championship quarterfinal match against Greece, a game that brings together nations at opposite ends of Europe`s debt crisis, hopes the match will be "very fair”.

“She is our lucky charm,” the Daily Express quoted a team spokesman, as saying.

Merkel went to the 2010 World Cup and a Euro 2012 qualifier against Turkey, when she was photographed with a shirtless Mesut Ozil.
