Brian: The opponent plays well! Their fast offender is very dangerous. He aims very precisely and shoots very hard. Linda: Our team is not bad either. Our goalkeeper keeps the ball very safe. Brian: Exactly, you know this game very well! Would you like to have a delicious hot dog? Linda: Yes, together with a cold beer. That would be fantastic. Brian: I will bring you a beer. Linda: Hurry up, because our good sweeper hurt himself. Brian: Here is your beer. It is actually warm. Linda: And the hot dog is cold. Hahaha. It looks good though, and.... hmmmm.... tastes very good too! A wonderful goal has been scored. Unfortunately for the opposing team. Brian: Oh, I don’t know if we have a chance. The opponent plays very hard and fast. It is getting very difficult. Linda: It does not seem to be easy, because our best defender seriously hurt himself. Brian: But our team must win, otherwise they cannot play in the World Cup. We cannot give the opponent so many chances. Linda: The coach should bring in a new player. Our midfield players cannot run anymore.

Brian: You might be quite right. He is still allowed to exchange another player in. I would bring in a younger player! Linda: May I have another sip of beer? Brian: Of course... Oh, no! That can’t be! 0:2! I think we should go! Linda: Yes... me too. I should not stay out so late tonight. I have to watch out for my little sister! Brian: But we can still go out on another date again, right?! Let us go to the cinema tomorrow! Linda: That would be nice! I do not want to miss "Love me, if you can"! Bye!
