"I was happy, but I made a spontaneous decision not to overdo the celebrations out of respect for the land of my forefathers."
-- German playmaker Mesut Ozil, who is of
Turkish descent and was booed during Germany's 3-0 win over Turkey in Berlin, where the crowd of 74,000 included a large contingent from Germany's Turkish community. Ozil scored Germany's second goal.
