Food of the FIFA World Champions

Volume 6, Issue 21, July 16, 2014

The FIFA World Cup was won by Germany; a state in the European Union who has a rich history of tribal wars between the German tribes of Europe and the Roman Empire in the 4th and 5th centuries A.D. Their tribal wars and migrations of people formed a fusion of mixes in cultural faire, environment, and gourmet foods. What is really amazing is it is not a well-known fact that these tribal wars took place centuries ago.

As predicted in a previous issue of “FIFA’s Highest Scoring Teams,” (http://aida-garcia.hubpages.com/hub/FIFA’s-Highest-Scoring-Teams) the title of and competition to win the world cup was placed and won in the hands of the German team.
