    1.30am CET. Will see how I feel at time. Don’t have very early start but game would be done at 3.15 am.

    Maybe if Sylvia Neid surprises me with the line up I may find myself too curious to miss. Will she throw on the youngsters, and how will they cope. Marozsan was very impressive (as always) on Saturday. Put lena Lotzen in front of her and there may be havoc.
