Italian Or German?


The Pope is both. And he is probably praying for both teams in the World Cup semi-finals today with Germany against Italy.

VATICAN CITY - Pope Benedict XVI won't be taking sides in Tuesday evening's World Cup semi-final between his homeland Germany and his adopted home Italy, according to media reports.

The on-line edition of Italian daily La Repubblica, citing "sources close to the pontiff", said it was also uncertain whether Joseph Ratzinger would interrupt his busy work schedule to follow the match on television.
