“There are questions after questions that have remained unanswered and that is not contributing to the clearing up of what exactly happened with our “Sommermaerchen” (summer fairy tale),” said Green Party MP Mutlu, echoing a term used to describe an outpouring of enthusiasm among Germans around the tournament that year.
