after the world cup draw, the useful phrases

The British embassy in Germany has launched a new website for the 2006 World Cup that includes translations of football phrases such as "he was sick as a parrot" for English fans travelling to the tournament next summer.

From Reuters.

Some of the translated phrases include "Ihm war kotzuebel" (He was sick as a parrot), "Er kotzte wie ein Reiher" (He puked his guts up) and "Wembley-tor" (Wembley goal), which refers to the controversial 1966 World Cup final extra time goal by Geoff Hurst when England beat West Germany.
