Review of the football match against Shanghai Symphony

A combined team from our orchestra and the Staatskapelle Dresden won a friendly game against Shanghai Symphony with 4-0. We had been invited by our colleagues from Dresden to this match. Andreas Ottensamer resisted the current trend in Austrian football by scoring 3 goals. Fortunately nobody can afford his transfer fee, so our team is on the safe side for the future! The fourth goal was scored by Fußballgott Marco Weller from our travel agency.
